Recessed lighting brands

Hey there,

I often hear what trash Home Depot brands are so I figured I would ask here to see if I could get some recommendations on brands and where to buy them (online?). Home Depot's CE brand is about 13$ per can, just the housing. How much more is something of good quality? Or is there nothing wrong with CE?

Features I'm looking for:

-Incandescent (Not a fan of LED)
-Deep Baffle trim*
-Easy install

*I want the lights recessed enough that I'm not going to have glare. I still would like to have plenty of light, but with 4 of them in a 13x14 room I don't think them being too deeply recessed should be an issue?

I pretty much spend the extra couple dollars for Halo products and have never had an issue!

We only use Halo recessed fixtures.

Halo H7RICAT AIR-TITE insulated ceiling remodel recessed housing for 6" trim size
#30 or #310 baffles. The exact baffle is bulb type dependent.
