Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BirderBob Fast, easy install; great flexibility; perfect for an installation of 18 handmade jellyfish lights
Our goal was to replace a row of ugly 23-year-old track spotlights with a dozen or two handmade jellyfish lights, mostly consisting of gussied-up Japanese rice paper lanterns. Our sloped 13-foot ceiling made the job more daunting. Internet searches for affordable systems were discouraging until I mentioned that the jellyfish theme really needed a curvy sinuous track to look good and Bingo! Hampton Bay at Home Depot had just such a track, affordably priced, flexible enough to install in graceful curves on a sloped ceiling, and accommodating enough to handle well over a dozen lighted jellies using very low wattage CFs or LEDs. We bought two tracks and over 20 connectors.
It took more time to erect the scaffolding than it did to install the 24 feet of track. Because we could move the connectors back and forth until they looked just right—they can be clamped on any part of the track—we had total flexibility with the design of the installation. It's not finished yet. When we saw how easy it was to add more lights (up to the recommended maximum 1500 watts), I got busy making more and more jellies. Here's a photo of about half of the lights, only a few in their final positions. Our goal now is to hang the remaining lights in such a way as to cover up the track when viewed from below, and then to install a little fan to set the whole thing in motion.

I got three of these to put in my kitchen and family room and am very pleased with how it looks. Two of the tracks have the flex track head with the chiseled glass shade and the third has pendant lights. The pendant lights use the flex track pendant adapter. The end result matches the steampunk vibe I am going for.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rdhunter001 Good enough for me
After MUCH research, I wanted to add lighting to my older home without using recessed lighting due to the fact we have blown in insulation and a very low attic space.
Mono Track Lighting is extremely expensive and I want to resell my home in 3 years so I did not want to spend the $2000.00 quote I got for other track lighting.
Now you DO get what you pay for, this has a plastic outer jacket, but it does look good once it is up on the celieng.
I did some pre planning on how to lay out my track, then where I wanted my pendants, then where to put the track stanchions.
I am NOT a super home builder, I am actually an Electronic Engineering Technician, but I had this track up in an hour with 2 pendants that I had to wire. (parts available through the same company)
Only 4 stars due to the fact that this is NOT UPSCALE track lighting, it is however easily installed and DOES look very good once put up.
I wanted to post a photo, but evidently I cannot. My girlfried is VERY picky, and she likes it too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Primo Met my expectations
Originally only installed 5 lights and then added 2 more. We have this in our kitchen and found that you need at least two lights shining on an area to give appropriate light. Your situation may be different, but such my observation.

I purchased this track along with lighting for my booth displays at shows and conventions. Very easy to use and put together, it's adjustable and can fit a variety of situations/set-ups for my needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nuggett Looks bad
The description says nothing about the ridiculously ugly plastic wrapped track - it actually does not say the word plastic in the description at all. It was so bad that I almost closed the box up right after I opened it. I optimistically thought that maybe when it was up it wouldn't be as bad - it was!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Georgiacustomer Great system
This is a great system, and its flexibility allowed us to get light to every area of the kitchen. I totally disagree with the reviewer who complained about the plastic. Once up, you can't tell it's not metal, and the plastic makes it more flexible and washable. We love the sleek design, and it's worked perfectly for over a year now.

Good value for the money. Have been using for 2 weeks, no complains at all !
Wish they could sell it as a bundle including the heads. I had to buy heads seperately online as B&M Home Depot do not sell heads which fits this knid of track.
