At first I wasn't sure I could justify spending the extra money on these recessed lights, but when they came in, I was impressed. My contractor tried to sell me on the ones at Home Depot that looked similar, but even he admitted that these are much more impressive and better quality than those sold elsewhere. After seeing them in person he was glad he didn't talk me out of it. If you are looking for a high-end quality recessed light, these are great!

As a exhibit designer for (24) years I would recommend this to any design firm/exhibit company to incorporate it in their display(s).

These are a perfect size and have a perfect appearance for lighting in any room you choose. I started with the hallway, added the living room and kitchen, and recently purchased a bulk order for my entire lower level (den, laundry, bedrooms hallway, office and storage area). I receive compliments all the time on their appearance and light. You will be very glad that you choose this product.

I purchased these lights last year not fully appreciating their appearance and clarity of light. They are very attractive and are able to illuminate a room as you please. They work very well on dimmers and are appropriate for any room in your home. I have just purchased another shipment which was swiftly delivered and carefully packed. They are installed in almost every room in my home. I am extremely pleased in the quality of the product and vendor for this service !

We installed nine of these in our living room which had no overhead lighting. Using the white housing gave us a less intrusive look in the ceiling so we can wash the room in light without drawing too much attention to them when they are not in use. The ability to adjust the angle allows for some cool effects against the walls in certain places and to change the direction of the light when furniture gets moved. With 50W MR-16's in an 8' ceiling and a dimmer, we can go from slight glow during 'movie-watching' to an amount of light that room hasn't seen in 40 years.
(1) the trim has spring-loaded clips and take a little coaxing to get far enough into the housing to fit tightly against the ceiling. It can be done, but is a bit of a pain. There is also a metal clip to hold the bulb (and optional lense) in place, which is not so obvious in the photos. As it turns out, it's not obvious in the ceiling, either, but it was a bit of a surprise.
(2) although adjustable to 30 degrees, if you adjust the angle of the lightbulb more than a few degrees, you will see light come through the bezel on the opposite side, which is a bit distracting. For ceiling installation where deep angles will be the norm rather than on occasion, I would recommend a trim with a thicker bezel or an internal baffle.
Overall, very happy with them - and the neighbors have commented as well after seeing them through the windows.

I have installed close to 50 of these trims to go along with the HR8401 housing.
Trouble free combination. Only minor complaint is with the snap ring that holds the lamp in place- it could be smaller and less visible.
They look great in brushed nickel. Easy install!

We have 40 of these on our first floor and now just added 22 more in the basement. Everyone loves them.

I looked for this lighting for awhile and finally found it. We've been very happy with this model and would purchase it again in the future.

Project is not fully completed but lighting LV halogen look very nice so far.
Pricing is very competitive.
Will order more lighting from YLighting.

This is a sweet little light, with very nice light quality. Worked well for me in a sloped ceiling.

Purchased in white in conjunction with the HR8401 Housing for a kitchen remodel project. These are truly uncomparable with the average big box store recessed lights available on the market. My electrician was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the housing and trim kit. Quality product made to last.

Love these lights. Beautiful and not obtrusive. Simple and elegant.
By:Shanna F. , Homeowner (San Francisco, CA )
<p>We have these installed in three rooms in our home. They are functional and attractive. If you need to place the lights further from the wall then approx. one foot, perhaps it is better to buy the elbow style that matches (#HR-D425) and allows more angling and control of the light on the wall. We discovered this to be the case in our most recent remodel.</p>

We ordered this light to illuminate some artwork. The fixture mostly disappears in the ceiling which is exactly what we wanted. Based on the location of the artwork, we had to tilt the head to it's maximum. Doing that combined with the wide angle MR16 (60 degree beam spread) resulted in a slight shadow at the top. This would not be a problem with typical MR16's (38 degree beam spread).

I really love the look and the price of this light. My electrician didn't like them much as he had to pound them into the ceiling box to get them to fit. Also, one C clamp was missing in the box as well.
