    15-Watt (120W Equivalent) 6-inch Recessed LED Downlight Trim, 1000 Lumens, Warm/ Soft (3000K) - Dimmable

    Get a longer lasting, safe, and affordable alternative to standard incandescent downlights using this 15-watt 6-inch Recessed LED Downlight Trim from Monoprice!

    This 120-volt light assembly uses only 15 watts of power, but produces 1000 lumens of light energy at 3000K, equivalent to a 120-watt incandescent downlight.

    This aluminum, indoor light assembly is 7.3" in diameter and 2.8" tall. It uses the LG SMD5630 chipset, is rated for up to 50,000 hours of use before failure, and carries a three year replacement warranty. The power factor is greater than 0.95.

    It generates light in the 3000K range with a Color Rendering Index greater than 80, which generates the kind of soft and warm feeling that is perfect for most home lighting needs. This light is fully dimmable without risk of damage to the bulb or a reduction in its expected life span.

    Whats the benefit to using these? If you have incandescent can lights already, can't you just buy a par 38 led and screw it in?
    Ed K on Jan 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: In my opinion (YMMV) the advantage depends on your needs. As a single piece there are no gaps, so any drafts or heat/cold losses that might come through holes in the can are blocked. Also if your cans have older/yellowed trim or black trim that you would like to update, this does it all in one piece. It's mostly cosmetic/subjective, but my wife likes them better than PARs and trim rings.
    Is this light vapor resistant for over a shower?
    A shopper on Apr 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It appears the enclosure is sealed. Many shower-compatible fixtures simply have a piece of glass separating the bulb from the environment.

    Good lights, but there are a couple of things they don't tell you
    I bought 5 of these lights to retrofit some ceiling mount light in my house.



    Overall I'm satisfied and plan to buy more. However there are a few things to consider before buying these.



    1. The tension system these lights use for mounting relies on your existing can having a bracket of the right size and placement inside the can. The problem is that not all lighting cans have these, and even if the brackets came with the lights originally they might not have been installed. That was the case with 4 of my 5 lights - they came with optional brackets, but the electrician didn't bother installing because he didn't see the need. So this meant I had to go find replacement brackets, which ended up costing about $4 per light and were difficult to source. My suggestion is to check your lights first before ordering these LEDs, and ensure that you have the proper tension brackets installed or know where to get them.



    2. Of the 5 I installed, 4 don't fit completely flush to the ceiling. I consider this a flaw in the design - the outer mounting ring is flat instead of tapering in like most light trim rings. This isn't a dealbreaker, and you can always add a little caulk or something to clean it up if a small gap bothers you. But it's annoying.



    3. No installation instructions or guidance at all. Fortunately we have Google and Youtube for such things but it would be nice to at least cover the basics of how the lights are meant to attach.



    Overall I'm satisfied for the $ and will likely purchase more of these, but it would have been nice to understand the installation issues ahead of time.

    PROS: Good value

    Energy savings

    CONS: Can be difficult to install depending on your light cans

    May not produce a flush fit to ceiling

    My wife and I flip houses and install about 100 can lights each year, all on dimmers. As price and service is always a consideration when we make our purchases, I was excited to see Monoprice come out with an LED can light. Purchase was a breeze, shipping was immediate, packaging was minimalist but adequate, price was good, but this turned out to be a bit less in quality and features than I normally expect from Monoprice. I suspect that these lights will become a great value but at this point, there are still a few cons that reduce the overall value I have come to expect from Monoprice.I think my title sums it up best..."Good, but not awesome."

    PROS: Bright, easy to install, low price

    CONS: Not much bezel "depth" to them so they do not show off as well as many lights do...but for the price, it's a fair tradeoff.



    Next is not really a "con" but instead, a design/manufacturing suggestion: On the back, around the edge of the "trim ring", I wish there was a bit of a lip because if there are any imperfections in the drywall on the ceiling, or the can does not fit dead flat and square in the ceiling cutout, there may be small gaps between the drywall and trim ring around the edge. If there are, turning the light 180 degrees may help but as a feature, a small lip would be nice.



    I am using a Lutron Dive C.L dimmer which is supposedly acceptable for LED. I have some Sylvania LED's that I tested with the current cans and they did not buzz. The Monoprice LED's are buzzing. I moved the Monoprice LED's to a standard switch and the buzzing went away. I would have said it's the switch causing the issue but knowing the Sylvania LED's do not buzz in the exact same cans, there is something different about the Monoprice circuitry that causes it to buzz versus the Sylvania.. For reference, here is the switch that I am using: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Lutron-Diva-150-Watt-Single-Pole-3-Way-CFL-LED-Dimmer-White-DVWCL-153PH-WH/203490337 Also, the cans are the two-wire with orange plug HALO's, not the twist in. No, that would not make any difference but just in case anyone is wondering, I'm including that. Next, there are 2 lights on one circuit, 3 lights on another circuit, and 5 lights on the last circuit. All three circuits are on dimmers and all have lights that buzz from the very instant you turn them on. I have not yet tried to isolate each light that buzzes to see if it is an individual light issue, or all lights. I will be doing that next week when I get back to working on that house.



    I can make a jump to a different, more expensive switch, but that would negate the price difference between the Sylvanias that run off of the current $29 Lutron Diva switches. Remember, I am thinking in quantity here as we do so many each year.



    Finally, I have one "lens" plate that did not want to stay in place and kept coming out of place. The small lens and its bezel are very lightweight, which would not be an issue, but one tab on the bezel did not want to stay in place so the lens kept cocking off to the side which showed a small gap between the lens and light frame. I had to remove the bezel entirely (which is a breeze), rotate it 1/3 of a turn, and re-install it. It then fit well. This might have been an issue where a tab got tweaked during original assembly, or it may have been a minor manufacturing defect, but turned out to be no big deal as it was easily solved.

    Response from Monoprice
    OK, just switched to full electronic dimmer switches and there was no change in the buzzing. Bummer. When it is quiet in the house, the buzz is pretty bad. This house goes on the market this weekend so I will try to remove lights and test them individually versus as a group. If I cannot diagnose the issues, I will be less than happy, but forced to remove all 13 of the lights and replace them with something else. I will update next week.

    Wow. These are great
    I bought 30 of these to replace the "standard" bulbs in my 6 inch can lights. It took about 4 hours to install all 30, and the first hour was spent trying to figure out how to get the lights into a "right at the ceiling" level. Duh. There was a set of slots in the side of the cans that we used first. Wrong. There are some small tabs about 1 inch apart on the sides of our cans that needed to be slightly bent out. Then everything worked great.



    These lights are a super buy. 30 out of 30 worked and worked well. They are bright, with appropriate color, and are fully dimmable. I plan to buy a few more to finish the areas where I had not planned to use them.

    PROS: Obviously the price is great, and installing them near Earth Day reminds me of the importance of saving resources, and getting 120 watts (equivalent) of light for 15 watts of electricity is a pretty great resource saving. See the review for the rest of the pros.

    CONS: You may well need to install dimmer switches if you simply have ordinary switches in your system. These throw a lot of lightwhich is why I bought them, and I'd do it again.

    This light is very impressive. I ordered the last 2 in stock at the time and as soon as I installed them I decided I need more. Be aware these are very bright so if they will be in a small room they may be overkill and you may want a dimmer. These seem better than what I can find on other sites or in local large hardware stores. I will be buying more soon.

    PROS: Very bright, Easy Installation, Good light color, Wide light distribution to fill the room, Much nicer and cleaner looking than old can light trim with previous bulbs

    CONS: Unit is slightly smaller than old trim so I now need to clean the ceiling a little bit

    Bright Idea
    These seem well made of cast metal. They are very bright and the electrical connection well thought out.

    PROS: Very bright. Not too blue and not too warm.

    CONS: None so far.

    Bought seven lights and one did not instantly come on. Light takes 10 seconds to get bright and flickers. Not good considering six lights were in the same room. I tried the chat feature at moonrice with no success so I sent an email to the contact address. Two days later and I've still not had a reply to negotiate a replacement.

    PROS: Easy install and quality and brightness of the lumens are better than I expected.

    CONS: Did not come with the connectors for fixture that did not have screw in socket.

    The best yet!
    I've been searching for years for an LED replacement for the incandescent spots in my living room. The three issues I've run into were: not bright enough (my spots are 100w each), no able to dim down low enough, and price. Well, THESE LED spots address all my previous issues. They are BRIGHTER than my spots, can dim down to any level, and are very reasonably priced. Installation was a snap and fit perfectly in the ceiling cans.

    PROS: -Very bright

    -Very dimmable

    -Very good price

    CONS: So far, not a single gripe.

    Very Nice Lights
    Excellent bright lights, less than 5 minutes to install each unit, modern look, would have given 10 rating if finish was better - some trims were not sprayed thoroughly so paint is missing near edges of some units.

    PROS: Very bright, easy to install, and energy efficient.

    CONS: Paint finish is on trims are not perfect, diameter of light is slightly smaller than 6" Halo trims so may show ceiling imperfections as trim does not cover what old trim did.

    Awesome lights, very bright, perfect fitment
    I bought three of these to install in my kitchen and make sure I liked them before investing in additional lights for the rest of my home. Install was extremely easy and the light looks very professional once installed. I will be placing another order for the rest of my home. My kitchen is much brighter now. The brightness, professional look, and low cost is truly unbelievable!!

    PROS: Very bright, easy installation, very professional look, no buzzing on my normal on/off light switch.

    CONS: None!

    great buy, great lights
    5/5

    PROS: Bright, energy efficient, dimmable... And don't seem to need special led type dimmers! Great price at monoprice.com too!

    CONS: Not always in stock.
