Bought these last time they were on sale for $7.50 which was New Years one day sale. I haven't seen them reduced until now. They are usually $14 to $16. They are surprisingly bright and dim great with zero humming.

So this is only the housing. Bulbs are separate ? What if one accidentally uses non-led bulbs on these, will that become a problem?

This is a bulb integrated into the trim.

Thanks. So, if the bulb goes bad, you replace the whole housing?

I think the Feit at Costco is 80w or 90w equivalent. I'm still waiting for a 100w equivalent.

There isn't a true "bulb" in this. The housing contains an LED array inside. Nothing more to purchase. If you already have recessed lighting, these will be a retrofit. I replaced all of mine a few years ago and they were super simple once I figured out how to work these. The ones I got are very similar and worth the money.

I have had to return mine as they do not work properly with my Lutron MACL-153M-BR Maestro 150-Watt Multi-Location CFL/LED Digital Dimmers (the dimming is even programmable).

90% of the time they function correctly, they dim without any hum but on occasion they have a "freak out" when turning the lights on.

Indeed. I got in on a CREE deal like a year ago. Once you figure out how to retro one of them (usually just removing all the metal pieces inside the can, leaving just the receptacle), it might take 5 minutes per to do the rest. I bought a few extra just in case one dies, so I don't have mismatched ones.

It took some time to get to 4 in a vaulted ceiling - but at least now, theoretically, they won't have to be replaced for MANY years.

Before these I had CFL's which, when you go to LED, suck big time. There is also theoretically a power savings, about 4W (9 vs 13W for CFL) but honestly I didn't really consider payback in the cost of the bulbs.

Just be sure to get the right diameter for your cans. Lastly be aware of if you have dimmers - I only have 2 in my house, nothing special, and the LED's I have in those seem to behave (run of the mill CREE's); I'd hate to spend an hour retrofitting a vaulted ceiling only to have the LED's not play well with an installed dimmer.

I have a recessed light in the bathroom with a diffuser (?)/plastic lens over the light. The retrofit should still work, right?
Also, can anyone comment on the quality between brands? Like specific differences in the way the lights appear or other performance issues? I have gotten a few LED products, and sometimes the lens/plastic over the LED chip makes the light look bad.

The description says "Suitable for use in wet or damp locations" so it should be fine in a bathroom. Getting those diffusers off from the bathroom lights can be a pain. Some twist off while others pull straight down. In mine, the bulb socket hang too low and hit the LED rear section so I had to loosen up a screw to slide the socket sections up towards the ceiling. Once you do one, the rest should be easy!

BTW for anyone in the RTP NC area, Home Depot in Cary has the Phillips version of these for around $7.50
