Installed these tape lights in a cabinet with glass doors. The tape is small enough to fit between the front of the cabinet facing and each shelf so that they are completely hidden. They provide even lighting from top to bottom on each shelf. They may not be quite as bright as the 24 volt LED lights recommended by a local lighting showroom, but they are 1/4 the cost and are the perfect brightness for accent lighting.
The installation instructions provided by Armacost are excellent, some of the best I've ever read. The different ways in which the lights can be connected and arranged are clearly illustrated and explained.
Pros: Functional, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight
The Armacost RibbonFlex Pro LED warm lights really improved the task lighting and appearance to our kitchen. This product has excellent instructions and the LED tape can be cut to fit almost any project. The Armacost Lighting web site also provides additional ideas and instructions. Their support staff was vary helpful. I sent them a diagram and they suggested the right components to save me money on the install. I would suggest using the (60 LEDs/meter) for under the counter lighting. They do have a color RGB tape lights for other applications. Additional lengths can be connected together. Great product. (see pictures)
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Very Bright
I installed this by myself while my husband was hunting!! I was amazed at how easy it was with the marked places to cut and snap on ends. We have an outlet in the cabinets over the stove that really helped with install. I think the dimmer is a must, the light is too bright without it! It looks professionally done ! I love this product!!!
This product worked great and my electrician had no problems installing it. They look great, provides a warm light that is good task lighting. Low profile tape is great so you don't need a deep valance to hide them. The dimmer works great too. If you plan to cut the tape to use under different cabinets, be sure to buy the connector clips in advance of installation. They are only sold online and not in the store.

I'm a semi-advanced DIY'er but I think even with normal fixer-upper skills this product is easy to install however you may need some electrical wiring skills. In one afternoon I replaced some clunky old fluorescent tube light fixtures with the tape LED's and it looks great. Luckily I already had a switch on the wall supplying 110v so I wired directly to the power supply (vs. plugging it in), mounting it out of sight underneath a cabinet. I also incorporated the 12v dimmer accessory, mounting it inside the cupboard out of the way, above the mugs. I wish they sold the tape in shorter lengths because I only needed 15' of it so I had to buy a second 12' package. Connecting them was a breeze but I opted to run wire over the stove to connect it to the last length of tape because I didn't feel comfortable mounting the tape underneath the microwave and directly over the heat of the oven/stove. The tape is mounted vertically under the cabinets against the lip that runs along the bottom so the light is directed towards the backsplash except over the sink where it's just a plain shelf. I also cut out a notch between the cabinets so that I wouldn't have to bend the tape to get it from one to the other. The light is warm white and not as bright as in the picture although it's plenty adequate as task lighting.
The sales associate in the Lancaster, Pa store was extremely knowledgeable and helpful during my decision-making process.

I've been installing new kitchens for quite some time now. I saw this product at the local HD near Boston where I was doing a complete kitchen upgrade. Read the reviews and thought I would give it a shot. Granted I had already planned for under cabinet lighting and had the power run before the cabinets installed. Installation was a breeze! 12 Feet of lighting in 1 hour and powered up. More importantly, the customer loved the effect and the fact that they were so low profile even without a cabinet light rail installed. I will use theese whenever possible in the future and will sell to customers every time. AWESOME!!!

Review 7 for 12 ft. LED Warm White Tape Light
Great Product, Made a Huge Difference in the Lighting in our Kitchen, We would without a doubt use this product again.
We are very happy with the lighting. We contacted Armacost Lighting customer service about our layout, and they couldn't have been more helpful!!! They made suggestions, such as: wireless dimmer, number of lights per foot, and where to use them, etc.. Great customer service. Great online shopping experience, & fast shipping with Home Depot.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Unique, Looks Great, Very Bright, Nice Design, very versatile can be used for many applications.
This is one of the most cost effective and customizable lighting I have worked with. Just cut the light tape to a length, attach the ends, and finish your wiring. Stick it in place, and bing! Great lighting. Very Bright and warm color for the white LEDs. The only thing you might put a negative on, is the wiring is tiny, thus is tedious to wire. That is it though! Great lighting - and I will use more of it for other projects!

I have finished installing my new Armacost LED lights and I must tell you I LOVE them! The color and brightness is perfect, the quality is superb and the installation was a snap. Instructions were clear and well produced. This was the first time I have swapped out fluorescent lights with LED's. I have basic wiring skills and tools. No problem with the conversion except I recommend the opening in the power supply case for the AC input be made bigger to accommodate standard in-wall residential wiring. I had to make this bigger because I had a situation where two black wires and two white wires had to be twisted together separately to form one black wire and one white wire, and each of these had to be inserted into the power supply made for just one of each. I have included pictures of the finished results. One set is just the LED's on; the next set is with other kitchen lights on for better whole-room light fill; and I included a pic of the LED's reflecting off of the granite countertops which I thought was a nice effect, and a pic of the under-cabinet installation itself. Armacost has a brilliant (pardon the pun) product and I will definitely buy more in the future.

Was looking for an led for under the bar top. Found this little kit at one of the three home depot's in the area. Great warm light. Fits under the smallest edge. Dimmer and power supply sold separately.

I decided to try these lights to replace my old under-cabinet fluorescent lights. I wanted led's for energy efficiency. I had an electrician install them into the existing wiring. The brightness is great — better than the fluorescents I replaced. My pics are not accurate for brightness.
They also look beautiful. Even though they are hidden, the tiny reflections off my countertop and appliances are subtly sparkly.
The electrician had never installed these before, but was so impressed that he commented more than once that he will put them in his own house.
I ordered the dimmer, but must return, because in order to put the dimmer on the existing switch, it would've required a lot of extra work, costing me $600 more on top of the $248 it cost to have the electrician do the work for me!
Pros: Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
First time I ever tried anything light this light tape, and I was really skeptical, but I have to say that it was very easy to install, and really brightens up our counter tops nicely. The instructions are a little confusing at first but if you read them over carefully, and check out the Armacost website, you'll find that it's really pretty simple once you understand how it works. We love the look of the under cabinet light, it makes our new quartz counter top really sparkle. The light tape itself is a little pricey, but we're only renovating this kitchen one last time, and it was worth it.
Pros: Unique, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Very Bright
This is probably the best geek thing I've bought in the past few years. It is absolutely perfect for what I needed (over/under cabinet lighting). Now looking for more applications. Pretty sure I can find a use on some of my classic cars (it's 12v).
With the company's 12-volt power supply, you must use a low-voltage, DC dimmer, which is available––stocked with the LED strips at Home Depot.
Before employing their low-voltage dimmer, I tried using a fancy Lutron electronic line-voltage dimmer; it wasn't able to dim the lights. So, running low-voltage cabling, I installed the DC dimmer––in the wall–– which infinitely varies the luminosity from a fairly low level to maximum brilliance. My customers very much liked the light; the 3000 K color temperature was not too warm, and not to cool. The installation was that of a reflective wash of light off of a white ceiling.

Pros: Functional, Well Made, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, bright luc, electric-power efficient, .
Great product, VERY BRIGHT- but not too bright, lights stay cool to the touch, LOW PROFILE so you only see the illumination- not the lights themselves, VERY HAPPY! I tied into another lightly loaded circuit to run power to a new switch- then to a new outlet in an upper cabinet so we wouldn't see the plug on a wall( well worth the effort ).

I am thrilled with these lights in my newly remodeled kitchen. They are bright, warm, wonderful lights at a great price! I recommend them without reservation. I did a lot of research, and had xenon in a prior kitchen. My electrician loved them too. I recommend buying the separate remote on/off dimmer switch - I bought mine directly from the company. Great customer service.

I purchased this plus a dimmer switch and installed the string in my china hutch. OH MY GOSH! It puts out so much more light than I expected and the dimmer is a 'must have' feature. Everything about this product has exceeded my expectations, and I'm planning my next project with them under my kitchen cabinets. Two rows plus a dimmer will give me very bright light for the counter tops, and subtle accent lighting for the evening. These little lights will give any project that expensive 'designer look'!

I built a light fixture to replace an old 4' flourescent shoplight. 4-4' sections of this tapelight fit the same general dimensions and provide more focussed lighting - more light on the counter and less in my eyes. The tape is easy to use; cut to length, install and add power. I chose to solder the wires rather than use the crimp-on connectors provided; they were probably adequate but I wanted this to be a permanent installation and the factory connection is soldered. I had no trouble sticking the adhesive backing to an aluminum support. I used the excess tape to make a floor light for the back of my pickup; it's a little too bright for this application.
The packaging warns about the brightness, and the LEDs are very intense. This tape illuminates well, but don't do too much fitting and adjusting with direct view of the lights. This tape illuminates immediately when power is applied; not all LED light strips do. As a replacement for a flourescent, this tape + the AC power supply was expensive.
Pros: Eco-Friendly, Very Bright, flexible installation
