    which is a HUGE advantage

    i like to use the rough in plate for NW. There are so many good things about this product... but you need to protect the j-box and whip from the closed cell foam insulators and I may be paranoid but I worry about replacement lights because the product keeps evolving so quickly.

    2” LED’s slowly taking over. They make them in 1000 lumen output now.

    As for the OP; I’ve used that one and the 4” version and liked them. In both instances I used them in soffits where space was limited.

    Rat traps I like that.
    I have been insisting that our guys secure that junction box.
    However they point out the installation instructions say its optional.

    I just installed 12 4" ones. Its cool, they now have adjustable color temp which is a nice feature. About half of them had a joist in the cutout, but again no problem with the thin ones. One thing you have to be careful about with the 4" ones though is if the joist is in just the right/wrong place, pretty much dead center, then the ballast wont fit up through the hole. That happened on one of these, but I had attic access so no problem.

    IMO 314.23 says it's not optional.

    Is there any issue with pre-wiring for them in new or gutted-remodel work? Just a matter of careful mapping of the wire locations?

    We used some of these in a suspended ceiling last fall. Worked well. A couple weeks ago they used the newer vs with selectable settings of 3,4 or 5K. Nice.
