5 of 5 Excellent product at a great price March 21, 2018
Reviewer: Jim C. from Marlborough, MA United States  
These housings are excellent quality at the best price.  The easy connect wiring harness makes it so easy to install.  Something like this at a big box store or other hardware store would cost 5X more.  Highly recommended product.
I will always shop USA Light for any of my recessed lighting needs.

4 of 5 30 canned lights June 21, 2016
Reviewer: John Orf from St. Charles, MO United States  
Order came in on time just as USALight.com said.  Saved well over $70 than buying at the big box stores.  Did have one light come in with some damage but is still usuable.  Thank you for the fast, free delivery.
