Possibly my favorite BTA-MALL purchase
I bought this for my bathroom because the existing can is in a lousy position and shone straight down, making it neither useful nor flattering. Rather than move the location of the entire fixture I thought I'd try this first, and it's perfect! The gimbal feature of this bulb allows me to redirect the light towards the mirror so I can actually see! It arrived in perfect condition, was easy to install, and looks beautiful- much cleaner and more modern looking than the old trim and exposed bulb. It's "instant-on", in fact even faster than the adjacent led flood bulb, and no hum or flicker. The 3000k provides great color accuracy for doing makeup- crisp, neutral white light, without being too blue or harsh; and the 800 lumens is plenty bright for detail oriented tasks. I don't know that I'd choose this wattage/temperature for other living spaces without also employing a dimmer because it's quite intense, but for a functional space like a bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, etc, it's great. It may sound silly, but this has made such a difference in the ease of my daily routine that I'm looking into swapping out all my lights.

Great replacement for my 35 year old unit
Thi light worked perfect as a replacement of my 35 year old fixture, that did not work well with dimmer switches because of the age of the unit wiring (tried two different brands of dimmers). This unit is perfect, the combination and balance of the 800 lumen brighness and the 3000k warmth is perfect for my den and television viewing.
I am starting to rethink and replace 5,000K lighs, since in some areas a warmer ligh is more cozy for the area. the 5,000k ligths give some aread the appereance of a surgical room.
I reduced 1/2 of a star for the 7 day prime delivery of the 1st ligth, the second light arrived as expected in two days; the other 1/2 star redcution is because when the light is rotated away from you, some of the light is reflected back to you from the inside bezel . I plan change the color of the inside bezel to prevent that reflection that is noticeble a the top dimmer setting. Plan to use a flat black or dark grey carboard to temporaly reduce the reflection; if aproved by my architectural commitee, I will paint the inside bezel to the approved color and permatenly resolve this small problem.

Good lights for the price
Good lights for the price. Easy install except for the torsion springs which have relatively large tips on the ends which may not fit the slots in most cans - which is the reason for one less star on the rating. Easy switch our with the springs on the old lights, though. I highly recommend adding a dimmer as these are bright.

One of the better LED "replacements" available on the market for 6" recessed housings. The spring arms keep the trim nice and tight unlike some other replacement fixtures that DO NOT stay tight to the ceiling. The warm white is my preference, and the lights dim very nicely with the proper LED rated dimmer switch.
For the price and quality, this is a great product. I am in the construction business, so have much experience with products like this.

Depending on where your brackets are located on the recessed can, that will determine what direction your lights will point, They are directional up and down, but not side to side. Otherwise, they appear to be well made, just not versatile enough for my requirements. They've been returned.

Stylish and Easy
Very nice lights. I am definitely no DIY'er but these took about 20 minutes to install. They look great. I like the fact that you can direct the light to highlight items you may have on your wall. Just be sure you have a good LED dimmer switch.

Great light - Easy to install and very high quality construction
Great "daylight" feel for the whole house - very easy to install, just plug into socket, click chord end into light fixture and hook light rods into old fixture slots. Pushes right in. Nice sleek look and much nice than the old halogen with the black frame which always collected spider webs and got so hot. These do neither - staying much cleaner and web free. Safer to since there is no heat buildup. Have used throughout whole house and love that they can be aimed (tiled and rotated) to highlight fireplace and paintings on the walls. Light is very pleasing and natural - like being outside on a nice September day.

Vast improvement in just minutes!
Looks and works great! Installed a set of 5 with a Lutron C-L dimmer in my kitchen, initially I tried the 4K temp but preferred and finally went with the 3K. Terrific improvement over the ugly old-style incandescent can lights without having to make any major modification and takes only minutes to do--they clip right in to the existing can brackets.

The build quality is very sturdy and it does not feel cheaply made
I am really impressed by the light output of this fixture. I had a dark area of my room and after installing this in a recessed can, I now have a fully lit room. The build quality is very sturdy and it does not feel cheaply made. Installed very easily and looks great. It sits flush with my textured ceiling with no gaps around the trim. I Highly recommend this product if you are looking to upgrade or install recessed lighting.

Nice LED repaclement
The LED lights are brighter than what I replaced. I like the adjustability. It was easy to tip but rotating it was hard. That is why it is a 4 star and not 5.
