Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by David Product does NOT WORK!
I installed my flex track yesterday - it looks great. It is very stiff, so its difficult to put up and is a two man job to hold the track in place while its snapped into place.
Now here is the problem. I bought this track because it is flexible, and I installed it as a big "S" on my ceiling. Any place that I connect a light (I bought 7 lights), where the track is curved, the light will not make electrical contact, or if it does, the connection is so bad it flickers. This isn't just one light, happens to 4 of the 7!!! I do not have the track bending anywhere near the stated radius, so this SHOULD WORK!
I have switched the lights around to make sure I don't have a bunch of dud lights. Nope, all the lights work when placed on relatively straight sections of the track.
I am left with a track that I'm going to have to take down, and I have 4 nice new holes in my ceiling. I am extremely upset right now give the time and effort it took to put this faulty product up.
I'm not a ranter, and rarely give products a bad rating, especially a "1", but this product has left me in a complete mess ...

I wish would have seen the other review before I bought this kit, but it was the only track light kit on the shelf at our local Home Depot. It would have been nice to know that it was not compatible with the pendant lights we bought (sitting right next to this track on the shelves) even if you order the adapter for pendant lights (only sold online). Even though all of these are Hampton Bay products, this is a slightly different style of track, but I found out the hard way. Now I have to take it down, return it, and order the correct track, which is ONLY sold online. I have wasted way to much time on this!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scott This Flex track does not fit Flex Track fixtures
I recently purchased this 'starter kit' for a special kitchen project requiring 2 pendants and 1 directional spot. This track is a different shape (taller and thinner) and will NOT fit the flex track 120 volt fixtures, heads, and pendant adapters sold separately by Home Depot. The fixtures will not clamp onto the rail and the electrical contacts are spaced differently. The instructions state that this is a 120 volt system that is designed for accessories marked "for use with Hampton Bay's 77003 track system." I don't see this designation on any of the flex track fixtures sold on-line and the 3 that I purchased will not attach.
