Really great under cabinet lighting. Extremely small footprint but nice bright light and coverage.
I replaced some existing fluorescent lighting with this brighter and more efficient LED. I expect the cost to operate to be way loads cheaper also.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hutch Design makes Installation unnecessarily difficult.
Unnecessarily difficult to install. The internal wire leads were too short, did not reach the area of the electrical knock out, requiring me to add extensions in the unit. There was very little room to do this. Also the twist on wire connectors provided were too large for the gauge of wire used in the unit. Luckily, I had smaller connectors in my tool box so I did not have to make another trip to the store.
The light looks great and works fine. But the product designers could have made the do-it-yourself experience better. I doubt that they had tried a real life test install themselves.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Larrs56 Good light but you need to work around things
First thing is I'm not an electrician but it is also not the first light I've installed. I replaced an over the sink florescent light which was original from 1955. With that said the wires in the ceiling were also original and in the center of the old light fixture. I had seen reviews talking about this but when I had to install it then it all came clear. I had to drill two holes in the center area of the unit that mounts to the ceiling. One for the wires and one for the ground screw. I could not pull any more length of wire from the ceiling and the wires lengths of the wires with this unit were as long as they came (not real long). So I am lucky I could attach the wires. The ground wire ended up being way to short to reach the ground screw. I had to daisy chain another ground wire I added ring lugs to and screw the wires together to make my extension. It all worked. In fact the original light fixture was never grounded. Go figure. I also had to drill two new mounting holes. I used screw anchors in the plaster to accept the screws. Those were not included. I know this is designed for under the cabinet but works fine on the ceiling. If they gave more descriptions and had the option for a punch out more in the center then this could be multiple uses. Light is great! Worth the price but you have to adjust to what you are replacing. I attached a pic of my old unit to see what had to be replaced.

Beautiful fixture, streamlined, fits under cabinet trim and is undetected. Great fixture for over the sink!

These lights replaced rope lighting which reminded me of holiday lights. These LED lights were perfect for under cabinet lighting in our kitchen. Being able to have the hi and low feature was a plus. My wife loves them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MyNameIsPete Quality and convenience is lacking
I'm not sure why this wired model is so much more expensive the the plug-in version. I bought this lamp to replace an ugly, existing fluorescent lamp that never seemed to work. GE certainly doesn't make it convenient for installation using existing wiring. First, the punch-outs for the wiring are only on the right side, with no option for feeding the wires from the left (which is where my existing wiring is) or center. So I had to drill a hole for the wiring. When I installed the cable clamp, it was still a little loose, so I tightened it a little more, which caused the threads to sheer off, rendering it useless. Since I had already modified it, I can't now return it. And the clamp uses a smaller diameter hole than standard cable clamps. The wires were too short to run to the left side of the housing.
I finally kludged the installation using electrical tape instead of a cable clamp until I can get it replaced, and had to add extension wires inside the unit to connect up to the existing house wiring, not an optimal installation.
The light itself is bright enough, and I'm happy with it's appearance and function. But for installation, it is sorely lacking.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dascon Nice and bright
The six LEDs are nice and bright. The ability to set the hi/low intensity is a nice touch.
The designers could have done a better job at latching the housing together. If there is the slightest pressure from the wiring position within the housing, then the formed latches will release. A little fiddling with my wiring arrangement satisfied the problem.
The wire clamp that is included is not a typical 3/8" non-metallic clamp. Having said that it will work with a 14/2 non-metallic wire but, you might have trouble with a 12/2. The circumstances of my installation required that I locate the wire entrance in a different position than provided by the pre-stamped holes. Therefore, I needed to make a hole in the housing so, I chose to use a typical 3/8 clamp instead of the clamp provided.
The light provided is more than sufficient to eliminate shadows in your work area.
I am pleased with the product.

Like a lot. Fits nicely under cabinet and lights the area nicely.
