Great valueReview by trinidadio
Love the color temperature - others were to "white". Came overnight, even though it was 2-day delivery -- a pleasant surprise. Easy to install - all four units in in about 2 hours. (Posted on 12/5/2015)
AwesomeReview by Christine Sawall
These lights are just perfect. They are really bright and easy to install. There is no heat which is wonderful living in Texas. I highly recommend these LED Downlights! (Posted on 10/13/2013)
PerfectReview by John
I used the LED downlight as a replacement for an old surface mount light in my bathroom. The instructions to convert from can installation to surface mount were very clear and easy to follow. When finished it looks just like a recessed can. I am very pleased with this purchase. (Posted on 9/20/2013)
Love themReview by Scott & Donna
Bought 6 of these for our patio. Love the look, the dimming feature & that they are LED. We now want to replace our recessed lights inside with these. Than you for a great product. (Posted on 7/31/2013)
Great led alternative to boring can lightsReview by Chris Brunamonte
I am a contractor and have used this light at 3 of my jobs this year. My clients love the efficiency, brightness and color. I am excited to see the improvements in the quality and affordability of led lights lately. (Posted on 7/11/2013)
Lighting Science Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Harold Holmgren
I love this light! (Posted on 6/24/2013)
Can be difficult in a j-boxReview by Dave Cox
The brackets that attach to the 4" j-boxes are very easy to bend when you start screwing the light in. Make sure you pre-drill where the screws go through the sheet rock, or the brackets bend and the light won't sit flush. And make sure you don't have a lot of wire in the box or you're going to fight getting these installed. The lights are beautiful and put out some great light. Dimmers work great too. If they last 20 years, then the installation is such a minor complaint. (Posted on 5/10/2013)
great productReview by Mel
I'm very happy with the ease of installation, the color quality, and the dimmability of these lights. Installed 4 in my kitchen and they look great! Just what I was searching for. (Posted on 5/6/2013)
Lighting Science Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Sven
Bought 4 of these buggers for my garage (J-box connection) and absolutely love them; just bought 10 more... once figured out how to install first one to a J-box, the rest went in easily... only a slight delay to turn on. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Lighting Science Glimpse LED DownlightsReview by Tom Siekawitch
I bought 1 warm white and 1 cool white to test. All I can say is WOW, much brighter than expected, I can cut back on lights needed, sweet. They turned on a little delayed at first, not much, but once warm, came on as expected. Haven’t tried a dimmer, yet. Nice looking, easy installation, great for new construction, cost savings by using a standard 4” box and they work just as described. I would recommend highly so far. Polar-Ray and shipping were fast, thanks! (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Excellent!Review by Andrea Egan
I was nervous about the style and functionality of these. There is a one second delay, which doesn't bother me and they are beautiful. Perfect lighting and color. I used them everywhere in my home. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
exceeded my expectations!Review by Tony
During a remodel we discovered that there was not enough room for can lights in one area due to some plumbing . The Glimpse LED allowed us to have matching fixtures because it can be installed on a J-box or a can. They look great.
Color (3000K) and brightness are perfect!
The delay does not bother me. Less power usage and less heat makes me feel better about leaving them on when I leave the room for a short time (I am a compulsive light-turner-offer normally).
Very happy with this product. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
great productReview by Robert Cline
I replaced 10 can lights, and 2 jbox mounted lights. Installation was a snap, and one of the only lights to work in both a jbox & can which I needed. The relatively flush mount has a real clean look. . I have dimmers on all of them. I tried several dimmers before I found one (Leviton 6633) that works thru most of the range without flicker. The lutron LED dimmers on the market don't work too well! I highly recommend these especially if you have a jbox application. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great idea, but problemsReview by Rob
Excellent idea. I have three installed. Needs to be improved. There is a considerable delay before the light turns on -- almost 2 seconds! I find myself flipping the wall switch again before it finally turns on. This is a real problem in my hallway next to the alarm keypad where I need instant response. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Innovative lightReview by Rob
The Good:
Installs easily on a Jbox and projects only an inch or so from the ceiling. Light dispersion is great, very diffuse and no spotlight effect. It replaced a ceiling fixture w/ 2 60w incadescent bulbs yet appears brighter, all while consuming 15 watts. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Nice lightsReview by Benjamin Griffith
Looked at several LED recessed can conversion lights and settled on these. All 20 or so are installed in only an hour or 2. These are very bright I think. I went with 2700k after looking at the 3000k version first. They don't dim as low as I had hoped, but do dim substantially. Looking forward to my electric bill reductions (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Lighting Science Glimpse LED DownlightReview by Brent
Item Id: 2767
Great lighting, only problem is purchased same light 4 months ealier and the delay in the older lights is much longer. new and old have different delay times.Customer service had no answer for that. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Great productReview by David Vednor
This is so easy to install in an existing j-box and the light quality is great. I'll be replacing several CLF with this. Only negative: there is a short 1 second delay from switch on to light. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Glimpse LEDReview by Richard Foran
Absolutely amazing light. I needed something shallow that could mount to a j-box. These are very high quality and easy to install. I installed four in a medium sized room. It's a good thing they are dimmable. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
Good lightReview by Ian Scott
The light was simple to install and has a warm light.

The light has a sharper shadow line then the privious incandecents that I had. Also they do pulse on the dimmer and I have to adjust the dimmer to eliminate the pulse on occation. (Posted on 1/25/2013)
