Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Walkman Great lights with a few issues.
I bought 15 sets of 3 light black units for my basement remodel. Also searched diligently for the correct dimmer switch, and found one. The lighting is great for spot lighting anything you want, even for a straight downlight to the floor. 360 directional, and bright. Here's the rub. Technology has not caught quite up to speed regarding the dimmers. I have three sets of dimmers, and ALL of them will not dim the lights all the way down to off. Not a terrible issue, but this should be rectified. I have not experienced any buzz, however on full brightness, some of the bulbs flicker a little, which is annoying. I just turn them down a very small bit and it stops. Now, how long they last will be determining factor of value. Only six months into them, so will see, but so far I love them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mapmaker17 Good LED lighting at a great price
We connected three tracks together with the track connectors. When installing the track heads, pay attention to the side with one pin vs two pin; they can be installed backwards and then will not work. The only gripe about the product - each track head comes with two labels, which require use of charcoal lighting to get all of the goo off the fixture (very time consuming).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Newlys A good looking fixture for quality spot lighting
We love the look of this track light. It has a clean design and could easily fit in most homes. Our only issue is that it's definitely good for high quality, bright LED spot lighting, but it doesn't diffuse light well throughout the room. I assume most customers buying track lights are looking for spot lighting so this shouldn't be a problem. We just had to add a floor lamp in the room. Overall, a great buy!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John LED lights burn out
Bought this to put in our kitchen .With in 2 days 2 lights burnt out. Had to go back to get replacements. Now today another has failed. We installed the product less than 6 weeks ago. Unless the LED lights are redesigned I would say I'm against purchase of this product. At 25.00 a pop for the lights the quality is extremely poor.

My sister wanted to turn a dimly lit hallway into a gallery. Track was the logical solution. I pushed for LED. We couldn’t decide between LED light bulb track heads or fixtures with LEDs built in. When my sister said she wanted easy-to-dust fixtures I immediately selected this kit. $33 per head with LED already inside. Included track and feed makes this a great buy. I’ve designed a lot of track heads and this is one of the purest, simplest designs made. The fixtures are elegantly egg-shaped and are not the least bit slighted by the comparison.
The light is a crisp white with no blue tint, the beam pattern a narrow flood, and glare at the front of the fixture is reduced because the LED chip is deeply recessed in the reflector. We were planning to add some pendants for some down light but were pleasantly surprised to find the track heads can be aimed perfectly straight down and still look great.
The floating feed is the same basic design used by all the major brands. A really old j-box required me to drill a couple new holes in the mounting plate, a not uncommon experience. I agree the instructions, especially the line drawings need improvement….not unusual. If you mount the floating feed connector into the track, hold it up to the ceiling box for a bit, the logic of the install should become quite clear. A “dry run” is always a smart strategy.
Six track heads using a total of 32.4 watts of power (equivalent to one MR16 halogen light bulb) gave the same light as about 240 watts of incandescent. My sister’s art is very well lit and the dimmable feature also allows her to create softer mood lighting at night. She’s quite pleased. My home and office are next.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RLee Good value, some things you ought to know
These LED units put out some serious light. Easy to install, easy to adjust, virtually no maintenance anticipated. What I didn't know was that these LED heads don't work on the track that comes with the 3-light halogen kit from Hampton Bay, or the 4-foot extension track from HB. Only works when installed on the track that comes with the kit. I couldn't readily find what track type that is. However, I connected this track kit to an extension, and a halogen kit, using the standard HB straight connectors, and it works fine.
I mounted these in my home office, and one head thoroughly lights up my desk. The track is mounted at about 8 feet, up on the wall. I don't have a junction box up there, so I used a track-end power connector, that plugs into a switched wall socket with it's 15 foot cord. I have halogen lights on the track, next to these, and I would say that the LEDs are brighter. You don't want to have to look into these, because of the brightness.
I would recommend this kit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rayfromrhodeisland Not bad for the price, but...
Lights have a substantial delay when turning on after being off for a while, takes about a second after switch is turned on before lights come on. Also, the color temperature of the individual heads varies considerably, so that light from some heads looks yellow while others are bright white. I bought 4 sets for use in two rooms, so I was able to swap lights around to better match them. The canopy cover is set up for the screws in the box to either be diagonal across the track or perpendicular across the track. If your electrical box has the screws in line with the track, you will need to get an adapter disk in order to mount the floating canopy to the box. The hollow wall anchors that come with it are not adequate to support the track while manipulating the heads. I recommend drilling holes as needed to screw the track into the strapping or joists rather than using the drywall anchors if at all possible. Price is right as long as your expectations are not too high.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1534 LED track lighting has made my staicase an art gallery.
I bought two 4-track units. They were easy t installa nd look great and most important, the light is beautiful. I added an extra head for a little more light at the bottom of the stairs. I am glad i waited for LEDs and I am glad I found these by Hampton Bay because they fitr my budget and look great.
