Pros: very little power used, 10.5 watts. Very bright warm light emitted.
I purchased the Home Depot Eco Options version of the bulb. When dimmed the light looks and dims the same as an incandescent. Instant brightness, no warm up period for full light intensity. Full brightness does give the effect that a skylight has been installed.
I have 7 of these in the kitchen ceiling. A dimmer is a definite plus as the light is very bright at full wattage. The light distribution is extremely even. As an added bonus the recessed lights look so much better with the trim and full glass insert. No unsightly bulb to look at in the housing.
I had previously used 14 watt (65 watt equivalent) dimmable fluorescent bulb in the cans. The light from the led unit is much brighter.
Installation is simple. Just pull down the trim unit on your recessed lighting. Unclip the "hood" from the porcelain bulb holder(socket) mine had 2 clips to push in. Screw the module in the bulb socket and push the unit back into the ceiling. Removal is simple. Just twist the unit counter clockwise and pull down. The unit is then ready to remove, just like a conventional light bulb.
In July I installed one above the bath tub and one above the shower stall. Wow! the tile and glass have come to life. The light adds a sparkle to the glass and tile. We feel like we are in a showroom now. The tile and glass always had a grey look to it. The light quality from this has really enhanced the bathroom.
I wish I had more recessed lights to put this unit in.
