Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by moka Love the look
I have been looking for an adjustable flex track for a while but couldn't find anything even close to this price range. I am so happy for my purchase. I gave only three stars on installation because it requires two people for installing it right. The track itself is larger and heavier that you may think.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by BillA Met my expectations
I purchased this product with the knowledge I was not getting high end fixture. The connections are plastic and will break if you try to force them. The fixture does what I need it to do and I am very happy with the product.
When laying out the ceiling mounts keep in mind the attachable space on the track is about 3" short of 12ft. So if you are trying to hit the rafters or joists, the track will be short of a 12' layout. On one end I came in 3 1/2" and used a self drilling drywall anchor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doctora worked perfect to update our old track lighting
Very unique product and look...purchased pendant lights and converted to fit track. Flex track light adaptor (purchased separately) was simple to use. Turned off power, connected according to directions, assembled pendant lights and locked on track. Worked perfect when the power was turned back on. We used the inch and half extension not the other two extensions included in the packaging.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrequentOvenUser 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.

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!!

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.
