Used this light as a replacement under counter above sink in a tight space. Wiring easy. Black to Black, White to White and Green to Ground, tuck it in and close it up, not sure where the confusion can be on that. Had to use a shim on the backside to keep it snug with cabinet. For our use, the light is a little bright. It comes with a 4100K but you can purchase a 3000K, I'll give that a try. No hum or buzz and quick turn on without flicker as advertised. Removal and install 45 minutes, the hardest part was finding the breaker to cut the power.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Nice Design

Provides excellent lighting, has a low-profile. I was connecting several in series; however, they only provide one thru-connector and they don't sell the small ones separately. I had to use rubber grommets (or at least I couldn't find any in the store).
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight
Cons: can't find additional connectors

I use this light in my kitchen under the cabinet and it is very quiet as it claims and has a very nice color to it. I bought a second one to replace an older, noisier, more harsh-colored light on the other side of the room.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright

We recently had these lights installed under new cabinets. They perform exactly as described and provide bright light in the work area. They are brighter and cooler than the LED installed under a different cabinet and I like them better. They were cheaper than the LED, too.

Purchased three of these for under the kitchen cabinets to replace the 25 year old ones that were originals with the house. Easy to install, look good, work well.
Liked that they came with a bulb.
They are truly flicker-free, instant-on and no hum. Would purchase them again.

No, I do not recommend this product.
This light was too dim for my application so I took it back for a higher wattage setup also from Home Depot.

High quality product. Great value for the money. Only downside is the length of the wires. Made for tricky installation, especially when doing it solo.
