A good quality fixture which is perfect for accent lighting in a cabinet or case. Works best with a spread lens for close range illumination. A small amount of light with spill out of the back of the fixture's ventilation and wiring holes.

My architect spec'd these mini's for a custom fixture. It looks and works great! I'll be using them in other applications in my living and dining rooms

I loved the color (Copper Bronze) choice available with these adjustable mini recessed can lights. They have a good renge of adjustability, and were easy to install.

The bronze lights were a perfect match for our walnut cabinets. Used them in our upper ckitchen cabinets to highlight some pieces of art. Exactly what I was hoping for. Delivered quickly, no problems.

We're using these in an apartment with concrete slab ceilings and no ceiling lighting, very dark. Rather than use track lights or surface mount j-boxes, we're suspending panels below the slab and recessing these into them. They're shallow so we don't have to drop them more than a few inches and they put out a lot of light for their size. Well built and unobtrusive.

I have ordered these units from YLighting for an earlier project (built-in entertainment center) and they worked great. This order was for task lighting under my daughter's loft bed. I like that they include the wires (with nice long leads), housing, lenses all in one package. Other sites sell them all separately. You do have to buy the low-voltage bulbs separately which is not a big deal. They come nicely packaged and are a neutral white which is easy to spray paint another color prior to assembly. Great feature in such a small light is that you can tilt them for accent lighting. They even come with a little cardboard template for cutting the holes in sheetrock or plywood which REALLY helps speed installation. Easy in/out with the spring-tabs so bulb changes are a breeze. I think you can now get LED bulbs for these MR-11 bulbs, but they're fairly expensive. They'll come down. I'd recommend YLighting to anyone.

Jeff in customer service was awesome! So helpful, and made sure we had all the products we needed to ensure installation sucess

This is an excellent product. It installs easily. The lamp has an adjustable mount so that it can be angled as needed. It installs in a 2 3/8" hole with two
spring steel straps holding it in place. I install this fixture 12-16 inches away from the wall on an 8' ceiling. The art work looks wonderful and the light does not detract from whatever is happening in the room itself. The fixture is well made and a bargain at the Y lighting price point. I have 3 in my living room and plan to install two more very soon. I have installed at least twenty of these fixtures for others who continue to like them very much.

Great product, easy to use - I used it to uplight painting on the wall. Drilled into top of cabinets, ran wire and transformer underneath (hidden) and the 2 lights now display my 2 24X12" paintings...I like them dimmed real low. Installing the bulb is not intuitive but I eventually got it.
