Rated 5 out of 5Â by PhotoSculptor Armacost RibbonFlex Pro LED Lights the Winner
I've read about and seen LED lighting for some time now and knew that's what I wanted in my new office. Searching the net I came across Armacost at HomeDepot and I quickly knew I found a winner. But I had no idea it would be that good! This lighting is so good I've been able to remove my separate task lights. Besides being able to dim the lights and change their color if installed per their recommendations these lights cast no shadows. The spread precision and quality is beyond my wildest dreams. I am a Photoshop user and not having any shadows anywhere in my work area is critical. Heck - I don't even need my back-lit keyboard anymore. Armacost you rock!

Rated 2 out of 5 Inconsistent Appearance
We had this product installed by an electrician and in any area over 6ft we have drastic color shift. I bought the colored LEDs versus the white to allow me to select the warmness of the lights. Instead my lighting is pinkish on one end and greenish on the other end. There were also a few bad spots in the center that had to be swapped out but nothing seems to correct the color shift. I wish I would have just installed the white. (They also flicker if on the lower dim settings).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Apple123 Fun undercabinet lighting!
We bought the RGB LED tape for undercabinet lighting, as well as the warm bright white LED tape. We ended up using the GRB LED in our bar area of the kitchen cabinets, and it's perfect for that location!
As part of kitchen remodel, our electrician hard-wired this in. I liked the 'white' color in the "warm bright white" LED tape better because it was brighter, and the color was warmer than what can be achieved by setting the RGB LED to the white color option.
The best part of LED in general is that the light is very bright, there are no large, hot, bulky lights peeking from under the cabinet, and it's energy efficient. We will be buying more of these in our bathroom remodel!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BillM Installed color LED in kitchen, love the look
I installed 8 foot color LED and a color mixer in my kitchen. I absolutely love the lights. The lights arrived with clear directions and were simple to install. I cut the strip in 2 pieces and connected them together with 22awg wire to go over the stove area. We had a problem with some colors on the strip that was away from the power supply. I contacted Armacost technical support and worked with an excellent representative named Matt. He immediately reassured me that he was going to help me get the lights working. Very confidently. We walked through a couple troubleshooting steps, then Matt determined the was a problem with part of the set. He promptly shipped out a new set. I installed the new set in 15 minutes after they arrived, and they work well. These lights are a great value. I don't know why anyone needs anything more elaborate, or expensive for their kitchen area. We love playing with the color choices. We mounted the color mixer and power supply inside a cabinet that holds our microwave.
I definitely recommend buying these lights. I've attached a few pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Abby Awesome product, even more great customer service
We installed these in our kitchen as over/under cabinet lighting. Originally while redoing our kitchen I planned to install puck lights and had even purchased them for my electrician. However, I started reading reviews online and it seemed like everyone had problems with them and in general disliked them.
I had heard about this type of LED tape lighting from my electrician, but had thought it would be too expensive or maybe not bright enough. I am in gratitude for the reviews on this site that helped me change my mind in the middle of the night, hours before the electrician arrived, and have him wire for installation of these lights instead.
THESE ARE SO AWESOME! First, they are thin strips of tape with teeny lights on them. I have no idea how so much light and so many different colors can come from these strips of tape. It's magic. I don't know.
You simply peel off the paper on the back of the tape, stick it to whereever you want it applied (which could be anywhere - cabinets like us, stairways, counters, bookshelves, I don't know... anywhere!) and hook them into the wires that your electrician will have sticking out of the walls for you. You can cut and reconnect the tape pieces together to make them longer or shorter, you can have them all plug into one power switch somewhere and turn them on and off easily...and I don't think I'm really good at explaining this... I just promise it's cool and you'll love it WAY better than puck lights (according to all the other people reviewing on this site).
So while regular LED tape lights are awesome (I assume), these particular ones are extra awesome because while they can be regular old white light, you can also change their color via remote control to be red, green, blue, yellow, purple, orange, turquoise, pink, etc, etc... Do you know how fun it is to change the lights in your kitchen to electric blue while watching a movie in the adjoining family room? Do you know how cool the neighbor kids will think your house is? You can also adjust modes with the controller we have to fade in and out between colors, adjust the the brightness/dim level, change how fast it rotates. I just can't wait to have a party now.
On top of all of this, the Armacost customer service (the people who make this product) is excellent. They have replied to me with detailed help by phone and through email with every question or concern I've had. (Just google their website, and contact them directly instead of Home Depot customer service, as that worked best for me.)They are way above and beyond. If you have any question about installing these or making them work right (as you or your electrician might, because it's sort of new), don't worry. They are a very good company and will help you out immediately.
So anyway, these are AWESOME. I LOVE THEM! Since everyone else's bad reviews of the puck lights and good reviews of the LED tape light led me to my happy multi colored cool kitchen, I wanted to give back and tell you to get them for your house as well. Also, I was so impressed with Armacost as a company, I think everyone should buy their stuff from them. Because seriously, most customer service super stinks. And these guys had a dude calling my cell phone the morning that I emailed for help, and walked my electrician through what to do. They also shipped to me days before the rest of my order from Home Depot came, even though I placed one big order all together. They are just fast and helpful.
Enjoy your super cool new lights! You're welcome!!!
