Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cueball121 Easy, Versitile, Cheap (relatively)
The tape is super versatile, in terms of where you can fit it. You can cut to length, which is great, and it's small for tight spaces, not just under cabinet. If you have the connectors, installation is easy. If you are handy with a soldering iron, it can be a cleaner installation. The biggest issue is hiding/anchoring the voltage adapter and wires, as it can take up some space. That being said, every other brand/system I researched has similar size to the adapters. This is much more cost effective than buying the fancy LED light designs, and works well only IF THE LIGHT IS HIDDEN. If it is in a visible space, this is not the light for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DricoSr Works perfectly!!
I installed this set of LED lights under my kitchen cabinets. I installed them right behind the valance to avoid reflection on the granite countertops. I used the cheaper power adapter with the dimmer (highly recommended) and wireless wall control plate. The whole installation took 1.5 hrs. I'm thinking in doing the top of the cabinets later. The wife is happy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glen Good color, adequate brightness, great value
Installed these tape lights in a cabinet with glass doors. The tape is small enough to fit between the front of the cabinet facing and each shelf so that they are completely hidden. They provide even lighting from top to bottom on each shelf. They may not be quite as bright as the 24 volt LED lights recommended by a local lighting showroom, but they are 1/4 the cost and are the perfect brightness for accent lighting.
The installation instructions provided by Armacost are excellent, some of the best I've ever read. The different ways in which the lights can be connected and arranged are clearly illustrated and explained.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AAINSTALLER great value incredible light
I have been using this product for a few tears now I even showed my electrician how to install it.
I use it exclusively on my under counter lighting the transformer can either plug in or hard wire. This helps meet code. Every client has loved it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Houston great ultra thin undercounter light
this product is top notch. I had a dimmable puck type of undercounter LED installation that I was very unhappy with. I saw this product installed elsewhere and was very impressed. Having the old puck installation saved some time with this installation because the connecters required between separate sections (4 in my case) were already there (however removing the old pucks took some time as well). Total install time was about 5.5 hours. Prior to installation we had to have a very bright central kitchen light on most of the time. Now we run most of the time with only the energy efficient under counter lights on. Dimmer on high when working on meals and low for ambient lighting at other times. I recommending purchasing the dimmer for use as described above and the White LED Tape Light Snap Connector Assortment Pack because the tape light itself does not come with enough connectors, both which sell separately. the LED's glue on to the underside and I found I had to do a little extra work at the connector ends to keep them from getting unglued as the underside of our cabinets is painted with a gloss enamel paint. I found a flat aluminum cable keeper in the electrical section that screws in with short provided screws that worked well to support the ends and connector cables. Pay attention to + and - at all times in your connections as it is DC current, and use a heavier house wiring cable if you have to run up into the attic to get to other sections of cabinet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KCDIY456 Used For Under Cabinet LIghts In Kitchen
Overall I'm VERY happy with the lights. They produce a warm, white light and really change the overall feel of the kitchen. I can't imagine NOT having under cabinet lights. If I'm home, these lights are on.
I bought this to use for under-cabinet lighting during a kitchen remodel. I knew I was going to use these LED strips ahead of time so I was able to install an outlet in one of the cabinets that was controlled by a switch. I also ran wiring behind the walls to 'jump' from cabinet box to cabinet box. This allowed all the lights to be controlled by a single switch without any wires in sight. I did some research to determine what kind of wiring I needed to run behind the walls and ordered it from a website that sold it by the foot. However, I think Armacost sells wiring that you can use to make runs behind the wall. Check out their website.
Installation was pretty simple but tedious. I made all my connections by soldering. I then covered the soldered connections with heat shrink tape. The end result look very professional and was 100% custom. You can view the Armacost website for instructions on making soldered connections. I had never soldered before but quickly caught on. It wasn't a big deal if you made a mistake (i.e. melted the LED strip) because you could just cut off the melted section and try again.
I was worried these lights wouldn't supply sufficient lighting and that I might need 2 strips. However, one strip is sufficient. My backslash is white which helped reflect the light.
I was also concerned that the light might be too blue/cold looking. However, it's a nice warm white light (not too warm though).
I installed a dimmer (the Armacost brand dimmer). It works fine but find that I NEVER use it. If I had to do things over again I wouldn't have installed this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJG46 Low Voltage LED Tape Lights
The Armacost RibbonFlex Pro LED warm lights really improved the task lighting and appearance to our kitchen. This product has excellent instructions and the LED tape can be cut to fit almost any project. The Armacost Lighting web site also provides additional ideas and instructions. Their support staff was vary helpful. I sent them a diagram and they suggested the right components to save me money on the install. I would suggest using the (60 LEDs/meter) for under the counter lighting. They do have a color RGB tape lights for other applications. Additional lengths can be connected together. Great product. (see pictures)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LuluR LED undercounter lighting
This product worked great and my electrician had no problems installing it. They look great, provides a warm light that is good task lighting. Low profile tape is great so you don't need a deep valance to hide them. The dimmer works great too. If you plan to cut the tape to use under different cabinets, be sure to buy the connector clips in advance of installation. They are only sold online and not in the store.
