Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by workerbee Best form factor for LED so far.
These LED under cabinet lights are the best ones out there that I have found yet. I've been shopping for low profile LED because for some dumb reason my cabinets do not have overhang on the face (cheap) so the normal under cabinet lights would be quite an eyesore with no lip to hid them. Also unlike other models there is no need for romex/strain relief since the power wire is 22 gauge instead of a hard wired 110v connection. The only real down side is the 12v plug that plugs into the fixture is 3/8" diameter which I think is rather large and requires that size hole if you want to hide the wire inside the cabinet. There is no non destructive way to separate the wire from the transformer in order to allow for a smaller hole to be drilled.
Also like others have pointed out before, the clips that hold the fixture clip in fine until the double sided foam tape is added. Tape is necessary to dampen the noise of the aluminum fixture base to steel clip, without it it would rattle every time you turned the fixture on and off, but with it on it does take a little bit of coaxing to get the clip to snap on. Not a problem really, just something to be aware of or else you will risk the fixture falling.
I'm rather pleased with overall quality of the product compared to all the other stuff out there. Comparing to other brands available at the other big box home improvement stores, this was hands down the one to get, but unfortunately they know this and priced it accordingly. There are less expensive under cabinet LED lights but you get what you pay for.
GE could and should spend more money on the product description. I had to open the box to really get an idea of how nice and thin the product really is. Why isn't this product on the GE website so people can compare? As nice as the product is, it is not going to sell itself in that kind of packaging.

These are probably the nicest, thinnest LED lights. They're a little expensive but worth it. My only complaint is the power transformer does not have terminal screws to make the wire length variable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Nice counter lighting.
I like them because of the 3/4" depth and they have a dimmer. They are linkable, but can only link 48" of them. So, I have 3 transformers plugged in and 3 left over. Also, I had to cut and splice a cord to get one long enough and stack some washers to keep from screwing the mounting bracket from going through the cabinet bottom. Still, they look nice and I would recommend them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clarkso Great Light, but a little pricey
I installed 24-inch, 18-inch, and 12-inch variants of this product. I read some reviews about the brackets on these lights being difficult to use, so I didn't even try to use them during install. Instead, I used 3M's "J4575 Dual Lock Low Profile Reclosable Fastener" which are really just like heavy duty Velcrow. I used two 6 inch lengths on either side of the light and simply affixed it to the spot I wanted, and it worked great. Very hassle-free install and the light quality is great.

Simple honest truth is that I liked the Lights so much that I bought a set for my Son and a set for my Daughter.They both liked the Quality and ease of installation of the Lights, not to mention the Value seeing how it didn't cost them anything.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dief Very nice light
There is nothing wrong with this fixture. It's the brackets that give it a bad rep. The brackets rely on a piece of flexible metal to snap into place, which happens quite nicely before you put the strip of double sided tape over the screw head as instructed in the print out. This extra bit of foam between the screw head and the fixture body may prevent the bracket from snapping onto the side of the fixture properly. If it doesn't snap into place properly, it will fall down. I had to take a flat head screw driver to coax it into place. Other than that (and the price) it is a great fixture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SuZQ Love these lights!
I purchased four of these lights, two 24 inch and two 18 inch, for my kitchen. I love the low profile and the dimmer switch and find them very useful in my light deprived kitchen.
Before installing I read the other reviews indicating the double sided tape did not hold for other purchasers. I installed all four lights per instructions and within a day or so noticed the tape failing but was able to push up on the lights and re-stick. Now, less than a month later, one of the lights has completely fallen down and will not re-stick. I am assuming this is because this light is over the toaster I use daily. To permanently secure the lights to my cabinets I stapled white zip ties under my cabinet at each end of the light, zipped up the ties and trimmed off the excess tie. I'm happy again but wish the manufacturer had included a similar solution rather than the metal bracket (not too pretty) and 2-faced tape (not suited for permanent use in a kitchen).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie very poor installation clips - clips too weak to hold up fixtures.
Beautiful fixtures, but the clips to hold the fixtures in place were poorly engineered. The fixtures constantly fall down onto the counter-tops. Even added Velcro strips to aid holding - to no avail. Very disappointed in product for this reason.
