Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by delee Excellent lighting!
I get a lot of compliments on these lights. They look great and are well made and provide a perfect light source for the bar area where I had them hung. You can buy lights for less but they look cheap and are not well made. I had these mounted onto bare pine wood fencing built into a base and it looks awesome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by naturaloz excellent product
Excellent lighting works great for a wash effect of light on wall, highlighting art work and wall, installed a dimmer switch for LED, used a plug-in connection, all works great, no heat build up for lights and adds sufficient lighting.

149$ Installed and worked great. A month of two later a bulb fails. 60$ each. Ouch. Can't find my receipt either.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Walkman LED black dimmable track lighting kit
Excellent product. At 17 watts/bulb, you really don't need many tracks, since 3 bulbs are on one track. The only issue I have with these lights, are that when you dim them all the way down on the switch, they really don't dim that much. I am trying to figure out if this is a dimmer issue, or just a fact that they don't dim all the way down so you can have good ambience.
At full power, the lights are very bright, and you want to make sure you aren't directing the lights in such a way that the light hits people's eyes. Perfect for highlighting walls, fireplaces, floors, art.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lagarto Dimmable if you don't mind a buzzing noise
Don't get me wrong, I love the light from these track heads. However, I installed a LUTRON DIVA dimmer, and there was a distinct buzz. Not so loud that a window unit air conditioner wouldn't drown it out - but loud enough that I said "forget the dimmer, these get a regular switch".
I own about 12 sets of these, none are on dimmers because of the noise. I even thought "hey, those magnetic dimmers might cut the buzz". I was wrong, and had to return a special order LUTRON DIVA MAGNETIC DIMMER. Annoying, but still great light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silvergirl Very attractive & good quality
Rec'd this shipment promptly and after a bad experience with track lighting from another lighting company, this was a hoped for scenario. These track lights are made of metal & glass as far as I can tell & have the look & feel of quality. They have not been installed yet, but our electrician for our commercial wine bar/restaurant I'm sure will have no issues even though he would have preferred me to get 8' tracks, not 40" ones, for ease of installation, so I might still switch out if I can find all black track lighting in 8' sections.

Electrical cover had crack in it. Just was not worth the cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dmminneapolis Nice lights, but need expensive electronic dimmer
The lights look nice and were easy to install, but my wife wanted them on a dimmer. The packaging says they are dimmable, but the first Lutron LED-compatible dimmer switch I tried ($20) caused flickering when dimmed, and at full brightness the lights would turn on and then off every few seconds, so something was clearly wrong. I called Lutron and they said they have not tested these lights for compatibility with their dimmer switches. They told me to call Hampton Bay support. Hampton Bay support told me that I needed to use a $50 electronic low voltage dimmer, number 527 513. I installed one of those and it does seem to work well.
I think Home Depot/Hampton Bay should be more explicit on their packaging about the type of dimmer switch that is required for these lights. Otherwise I would give them 5 stars.
