Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IANYC Previous Review Inaccurate
The previous review regarding link cables is inaccurate. Each box comes with a light fixture, power transformer and one link cable. You can connect multiple fixtures for up to 15 watts total power draw to one transformer. This equates to a maximum of 2, 24" LED fixtures per power supply. More than 2 of the shorter length fixtures can be linked together, as long as total power of all linked fixtures is 15 watts or less.
Overall the light is bright and nicely dispersed. The transformers can be mounted. Only downside is the length of the low voltage cable between fixture and power transformer is short, so remote mounting the transformers means you need to cut and splice low voltage power cord. Not hard to do, but not ideal. Some sort of adjustable cable connections would be helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LisaLisa Great under cab light but too expensive to link
Installing is very simple, however my light will not stay in the metal clips and fell out of them unprovoked. Agree with others that this is not a cost-effective lighting system if you need to link more than one light. I even called HB to complain about having to buy a complete light package, when only the light is needed to link

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Serge Nice product but...
This is a nice design, very thin. But the issue is where the package says "This kit is linkable" but there are no links to purchase. Since the product is only sold at Home Depot, and you cannot purchase the links anyplace else they need to change the wording on the package or start selling the links also, since most people want to link mutiple light to ONE power source.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Boon This product is NOT cost effective to "link" as stated
You can link these fixtures one to another BUT only if you buy another whole KIT with power supply. You can not buy the individual lamp fixtures . To link 3 together, it will cost you the price of 3 NEW kits. Why not sell the individual lamp fixtures separately ?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris WASTEFUL if you want to link
ONLY sold as a complete kit. If you want to link 3 together you will pay for and throw away 2 power supplies.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dp118 Excellent lighting kit but need to sell lights separately
Excellent quality and easy to install. To stay within wattage limits of the power transformer, we linked one 18" and one 24", then two 18" and one 12". This gives us two controllable zones using two transformers over about 12 feet of countertop. Install by using supplied screws to mount retaining clips into the underside of your cabinets. The lights then easily clip into these. The connecting wires between each light are about 12 inches long. Recommend testing placement and operation using something like Blue Tac to stick the light fixtures under cabinets and checking connecting cables before permanent installation. This really helped us determine ideal light dispersion and cabling placement.
The lighting is a warm hue, about 3000K if you understand the jargon. It's not the cool blue that LEDs often emit. We prefer this warmer hue. It is not as warm (yellow) as halogen lighting which we have on our over-the-oven microwave or incandescent lighting. The button switch provides 100%/50%/Off capability. 50% provides a perfect nightlight effect and 100% really lights up the counter for cooking.
We knock a star off because as others have mentioned you cannot buy light fixtures without buying the kit. We now have three extra transformers which we don't need. Home Depot needs to fix this issue. The 24" strip also needs at least one more undercabinet clip to fully secure it to the underside of the cabinet.
