I originally thought I'd get the 5000k because I like white things, but I was wrong. 5000k was too blue. After getting the 4000k, though I was super happy. The lamp is an incandescent for comparison. When I want a homey mood I turn off the recessed lights, but when I want to work the recessed lights are perfect.

First, these are really easy to install. It's totally do-able to chain these along, with the romex going in one knockout, romex going out the other knockout, and connected to the light with the supplied wire nuts. It's a bit of a tight fit in the box, but it works. After it's wired in and the box is tucked away, it was easy to use the supplied template to cut a hole in the drywall, though I'd suggest cutting on the outside of the line instead of inside. It was a pretty tight fit when I did it. With the hole cut, you find the box (hopefully you measured everything right and marked the right spots when you did all your drywall and paint), and plug the light into the connector, then fold the springs back and slide it up into the hole. The springs are super strong and there's no issue with it holding the light tightly against the wall (I used 5/8" drywall).

The string of lights works great with my Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi 600W Dimmer. For the most part I usually keep the brightness around 30%. All the way to 100% is pretty intense, though I may have gone a little too dense (roughly 6' spacing between all the lights).

I was a little worried that there's be some whine or buzz from a transformer or capacitor doing voltage switching, but these things are perfectly silent.

Inspection was a breeze. For rough-in I routed and stapled all the wire with uncut loops where the lights would be, and wired up a practice box with spare wire to show the inspector. He was interested in these ultra-thin lights because he hadn't seen them before, but was satisfied. Then for final inspection he never looked at the final wiring and only made sure the dimmer worked correctly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great lights. 5000k is too blue, 4000k is good for a workspace.
