This deal has been active since Friday but I still don't see it posted and it seems really slick to me. Comes to $3.33/bulb.

2700k temperature, 650 lumens, 5/6" retro-fit.

Note: as has been pointed out in comments, the "85 watt equivalent" appears to be a mistake. The product box itself does not mention this, but does confirm the 650 lumens, so these are more like 60w equivalent.

I know it is preference, but what color bulb are people going with these days?
We typically spec a warmer white, 2900k -3200k primarily because it will blend in with a typical incandescent/ halogen and daylight . I find the Blue hue of a higher temp looks unrealistic and can dramatically change the appearance of a space like fluorescents do.

I have some 2700k LED recessed fixtures from Sylvania; For some reason it is still pretty dang white, almost 3000kish. I was hoping for a more yellow hue, just because each light is almost like sunlight. To me, it doesn't give enough of a home-y feel. At night, sometimes it still feels like daylight!
I feel the same way about soft white leds not feeling as warm as incandescent, not sure why. Personally, I have this temp throughout my house, including the kitchen (the horror!), and don't find it to warm. and the couple places I have cooler bulbs stand out as harsh and uncomfortable. You might lose a tad of clarity using the warmer lights, but I find it's better to be consistent throughout the house, and I prefer warm indoors.

Also great point above about how downlights direct their lumens in a single direction, compared with normal bulbs which spill out everywhere. I was thinking that was the case, and explains why these seem so much brighter than their lumens would suggest.

Finally, I have 4 Utilitech Pro LEDs in my kitchen that run a lot every day and still work great after several years. Can't say these will do the same, but hoping they're not as short lived as some are saying (and if they are, at least they were cheap to begin with).

If I already have Recessed lights, how easy is the install?
Super easy. Look on youtube. It's really a matter of unscrewing current light bulb, removing the spring clip that holds the current recessed light "ring", then screwing in this new LED bulb and lining up the clips to put it up. Shouldn't take more than 2 minutes per bulb.

I use individual carbide hole saws. RemGrit in particular, but looks like Milwaukee is a bit cheaper and likely just as good. Just make sure you get the right size for your cans: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwa.../202327775

I also recommend drawing out the holes and marking your ceiling joists ahead of time so you don't cut a few holes and then realize one can won't fit where it needs to. Measure twice, cut once.

lumens per watt, color temperature, dimmable, CRI - this is all good, but the LED flicker issue is concerning me more and more.
if you dont now what I am talking about, try to shoot a video with your phone in slow-mo while somewhere with residential LED lights - you are in for a nasty surprise.
here's an example video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgjb14PpT8A
"at higher frequencies of 100 to 150 Hz for example, your eye may not consciously register it, but the brain can still detect and react to it, potentially with negative consequences"

Any chance you can mount this to a round receptacle/standard light box?

Does anyone know how you can mount this type of light within the basement ceiling / open floor joist?
You would want a new construction 6" diameter housing for each. Big box stores sell in individuals or multipacks. You recess between and nail to the joists and wire to each ones elec box. Then these led kits just screw in like a light bulb/mount to that housing.

For those with drywall already you need 6" retrofit housing kit ,which cut a hole, wire up, then stick through hole, and screw in the led kit like a bulb/mount to the housing

Probably a low CRI as well. In the consumer market, we're just catching on to the importance of CRI, where in commercial lighting design it's been a determining factor for a while now. As more and more consumers are demanding better quality light, these low CRI lights will be liquidated in favor of the higher CRI lights. My advice is pay the premium now for high CRI or wait til the 4 or 6 pack LED flood lights go on sale for $0.75 a piece.
Thanks, super helpful; was about to pull the trigger. When does 4 to 6 pack LED floodlight go on sale for $0.75 a piece?

Might I be better off just buying a bulb for the can at that point?
These kits are a cleaner look imo

why would the dishwasher be on the same circuit as the lights? i don't disagree with you if it's only when the DW runs, but something is not wired "correctly"
You might be surprised how older homes are actually wired. Between the "old" way of doing things (even to code) and adapting an old house to the modern world you find all sorts of less than optimal situations.

I brought a lot of these recessed lights from Lowes 2 years ago and all worked fine. Though I don't know what's the point of buying these bulbs I can replace them with Br30 led bulbs instead.
