Elco Trims w/ Halo Housing

cdigsOctober 7, 2009

Hi,

Anyone tried this? The Halo trims are pretty pricey.

I'm considering the H36RTAT (3" line voltage GU10) but the Halo trims are actually more expensive than the housing!

Has anyone tried other trims with Halo housings with success?

Thanks!

There's no problem with using these trims, but you should really re -consider using a GU-10 lamp
They are , without doubt, the worst lamp introduced to the market, ever.
Pure crap.

How so? I have a few fixtures in my house (non-recessed) using GU-10s and they seem to work fine for me. They're fairly easy to install and give off a nice light.

Any specifics on issues that you've encountered? I would have figured that since it's essentially the same bulb as a standard MR-16, there wouldn't be much difference aside from the socket...
