Decent light for the money, however installation is a pain, and I was just replacing a light fixture on the wall in my basement stairwell. I haven’t tried to dim so I cannot comment on that. For the install you have to pull the wires through like most fixtures, but instead of installing the back plate to the wall then wiring it up and attaching the actual light fixture to the front of it you have to pull the wires through, wire it up and put the front on and screw it together from the backside. If you have some decent slack on you wire you’ll be fine. It’s a rear backwards way to do it. Scratch my wall all up in the process of it.

Good lights for under cabinets. They are bright, I like the 2700k color, not too yellow, but not harsh bluish either. Just right. I replaced 5 thin florescent fixtures of various lengths that were getting too needy. As others say, the wires inside really need to be longer. I ended up using wire from the old fixtures in several of the new lights. There are from 1 - 3 knockouts on back dependant on length. But it was tight using existing wires from wall in every case. Otherwise, it went well, lights look good.

Great light. We installed the 12” light in our kitchen pantry that didn’t have a light before. It was straightforward installation, including a clamp to secure the house wiring to the light fixture before connecting the wires. I wired it to an existing switch but the fixture itself also has a small switch.
I purchased various lengths of this LED to replace existing under cabinet lighting. I agree with other reviews that there is not much room in these lights for the wiring, but I was patient and was able to get them installed. When it came to the switches to control these lights, I wanted to use a switch similar to the one I had used on the old lights. A type like that was not listed in the Seven (7) switches that are recommended (which is listed in the documentation with the lights). I found one that works great. It is Lutron MACL-153M-IV (IV stands for Ivory Color), This is the "Master". I also used Lutron MA-R-IV, which is the Remote companion Dimmer to the Master switch. The lights do not flicker, no problem with dimming at any level. This combination of lights and switches are a good match.

I installed the 9, 18, 24 and 36" units of this product for under cab kitchen lighting. The end run unit was this 36". This unit would not dim with the rest and buzzed continuously. I took it back thinking it was defective and got another one. It did the same thing. Finally, I replaced it with another 24" unit and everything works fine. The dimmer I'm using is one listed as compatible and my wiring is new and tested. I can't understand why it won't work in my situation. I would prefer to have the 36" light since the end run is under a long span of cabinets. Now I feel like I should have gone with the old-school and much less expensive, I might add, fluorescent lights.
I bought five of these LED under cabinet lights of varying lengths to replace the existing fluorescent undercabinet lights. The quality of the fixture is good and the light output is great. A vast improvement over the fluorescent lights I removed. All that being said, trying to connect these to the existing romex and then mounting them was difficult. The fixture is not constructed with a mounting configuration to install and wire the LED driver and light fixture frame separately from the LED lamp assembly, so you have to find a way of temporarily supporting the fixture while you wire it and use the temporary support to hold it against the bottom of the cabinet while you attempt to install a screw through a small hole on each end of the fixture (see photo). I ended up using double sided tape to hold the fixture to the bottom of the cabinet and then installing the screws. Even though installation was a pain, I am pleased with the end result, but I can’t give this product five stars because of the difficulty mounting the fixture.
