After finally getting the strip lighting installed I am very pleased. I bought the started kit from HD, installed the transformer and dimmer and the 6 foot section that came with the kit. I needed a total of 14 feet so I ordered the 8 foot extension and a coupler on line. After connecting the 8 foot section I stepped back and noticed the two sections were two different colors - obviously I wasn't happy. The 6 foot was a brighter blue, the 8 foot a softer white. Another reviewer had the same issue. I contacted Cabled tech support - first tier support not much help - eventually they gave me a phone number at the manufacturer. The girl was very helpful and she shipped me a 14 foot section at no cost. I replaced the other two sections with this section and it looks great. I priced up puck lighting on line and it came to over $300. I invested $125 in the Cabled strip lighting and am very pleased - even after the different color issue. Installation can be a little tricky - make sure the ends are square and insert lighting strip well into the connector before crimping. I had to redo the crimp a few times. My recommendation to HD is stock more of the parts! The starter kit is all you can buy in the store. Having to order the rest online turns a one weekend project into two weekends.
Pros: Functional, Looks Great

Review 2 for 8 ft. LED Lighting Strip Indoor/Outdoor Extension Kit
The starter kit is great for kitchen cabinets. The kit can be extended easily and is made of good quality material. The color temperature is dead on for this type of applications, not too blue and not too yellow.

Review 6 for 8 ft. LED Lighting Strip Indoor/Outdoor Extension Kit
The order arrived without any materials to attach it to my cabinets. This required placing another order for those parts which involved waiting another week to complete my project and another shipping charge That information should have been available when placing my first order.

Review 9 for 8 ft. LED Lighting Strip Indoor/Outdoor Extension Kit
I did see the potential for the problem I encountered mentioned in another review so it does exist and customer service did take care of it for me but it did cost me shipping to Optiled to get the resolution. Problem is starter kit light tone (warm) did not match extension kit (bright) and is quite obvious in a continuous undercounter installation. Had to return the parts to get a single run of same light tone, they did ship the bright version as I requested. Only reason I give it a 4 was for the hassle, it's great looking and otherwise deserves a 5 they just need to get their act together on the light tones so they do not put customers through the hassle.Thank you customer service !
Pros: Well Made, Looks Great
Cons: mismatch on light tone with starter kit

Review 10 for 8 ft. LED Lighting Strip Indoor/Outdoor Extension Kit
The LED light strip is great, but this kit does not include any installation brackets. This "kit" is supposed to be an extension kit for a previous installation, but how do they expect you to install the light strip without brackets. I returned this order to Home Depot.

Review 12 for 8 ft. LED Lighting Strip Indoor/Outdoor Extension Kit
CabLED's LED Lighting Strip is a wonderful product that I have been installing as Under Cabinet and In Cabinet Lighting for 6+ months now. There is one main concern or consideration when purchasing this product:
1. Make sure you check the Kelvin rating for the light you are picking. This is located on the back of the package and can range from 2700K to 4500K with 3000K being the one most popular with my customers (and myself) These are stocked together and the cooler colors don't match well when using multiple strips.
I have not used this product in an outdoor environment yet but the connectors look like they would be good in damp locations. The light strips themselves are completely sealed which I personally like.
For Under Cabinet lights, the 6' starter kit is usually sufficient and can be purchased in store. Longer runs require any one of several extensions, but these must be ordered online. The transformer will state the maximum foot length it can support. I have never exceeded 25% but I would expect 80% would be fine.
The crimp connectors are a little tough to work with. I use channel locks to complete the connection.
