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.

What 100w-equivalent LED bulbs only draw 10.5w, and how much are they? 10.5w may not be industry-leading for this brightness, but it's not that crazy (for a comparison, here's a comparable Cree model [homedepot-static.com]).

FWIW, I have some older Utilitech Pro downlights like these which are still going strong in my kitchen after several years. Those are 700 lumens and draw 13w. I have no complaints with their light output or coloration (they were actually a significant upgrade in brightness over the ageing 60w incandescents they replaced, and seemed a bit cooler in comparison). These are at least more efficient than those, and at a little over $3/ea, I can live with a bit more power consumption over time in exchange for a much lower up-front outlay.
I bought some Phillips from amazon 12 packs for like 32 bucks and only complaint is the color temp but for around $3 bucks this is a good deal thanks op

Do these need cans to be fitted first for installations? I currently don't have recessed lights. There are some versions where you just cut the ceiling and snap in place. Are these like that or do they need a can installed first to be installed?
Thanks!
These need cans. These are suitable for a retrofit if you have existing cans. For new installations get the snap ones. The ones you are referring to are IC rated which means they can be in direct contact with insulation (no need for a can).

The IC rated clip on fixtures are easy and fast to install. Just get a circular cutout drill bit and some conductor. I spent more time lining everything up than anything else. I recently installed Halo 6" rounds and splurged for the selectable color temperature if we decide to redecorate the house.

I installed these over the weekend. They are not as yellow as the costco Feit BR30 2700k 65W equivalent LED bulbs, but seem brighter. My original cans had the bulbs recessed about 2 inches in the can, so that may have wasted some of the original light though.

The bulb has a screw to allow for switching mounting clips or housing size. The metal of the screw seems to be on the softer side. Just be sure to use the right size of screwdriver head, or the screw head will strip.

They also make retrofit cans, and those snap ins assemblies are typically expensive, so still might be cheaper to get can + the retrofit kit like this.

"ETL and ES rated for wet location"

Do you think I can use this in a shower?

Bought some 75w equivalent screw in LEDs 2/$100 @ the 99c store for my cannisters.
Was bright, but wanted a light show, so then I ordered seven 1.5" light bulb extension sockets, so that the bulbs stick out a little, but now light radiates off the edges of the bulbs, directly into the room. Most advantageous and aesthetic part? ... they're 3000k!
This was much cheaper a couple years ago. But now these down firing retrofits are getting cheap, and dimmable. I suspect that these will look a little nicer, although the extended screwins aren't bad either.
Ok, rant on my friends

I don't know why they even sell this color temperature in LED, do people really like their house to look yellow?
I was happy when alternatives to the traditional incandescent started coming out in the 90's as I always found indoor lighting made things look weird and unnatural compared to the colors I see outdoors.
Warm white leds are the closest color to traditional bulbs.. Other than one bathroom, all my bulbs are warm white in my house.. over 100 bulbs. So, I still get this color temperature.

Don't know if they changed these over the years, but the ones I got about 2-3 years ago have been great. Out of 30 of them, none have failed even though some have been used 6+ hours daily on average. The flushing is made of metal, so hopefully doesn't yellow as quickly. Great perceived CRI on the soft whites, no worse than the Phillips bulbs I have. Some did buzz on a dimmer, but I swapped them with others on a non dimming zone. Overall, very happy with them.

Not sure if this is applicable but found these rebates when looking for specs on these fixtures.

Thanks for posting this - I noticed that it listed a CRI of 94 which I didn't see anywhere else, and a quick search led me to this: https://www.energystar.gov/produc...ls/2341644

If accurate, that seems really good.

I own a company that manufactures lights (similar to these). 650 lumens at 10.5w isn't very good, especially with diodes that are only rated for 25,000 hours. These won't last longer than 3-4 years. 1050lm is the ideal light target. 2700K is nice though. It says 85w equivalent, but 650w is closer to 40W incandescent. 3 for $10 isn't bad if you currently have CFL BR30 bulbs or incandescent. Cost to manufacture these is around $2.50 each so the value is quite good.
