Bought these power supplies to power the Armacost 12v LED tape lights. These can be plugged into an outlet, or you can remove the power cord and direct wire them. They are small, low-profile, and come with mounting holes, so they are suitable for undercabinet lighting.
I ordered 2 for my installation, but one arrived DOA. This demonstrated the benefit of ordering from The Home Depot online. I simply took the defective part to my local Home Depot store, and they gave me credit, no questions asked. I didn't have to bother getting an RMA, re-boxing, and shipping it back like I would with other online retailers. I then ordered another one and it arrived in working order.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Eco-Friendly, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

Comes with everything you need. Can be direct-wired. Took some thought to make it look decent in a under cabinet direct-wire replacement install.
Wish more wattage options were available in-store.
Pros: Functional, Looks Great

Electrical contractor had no problem installing this with under-counter tape light. The power source is nestled nicely and neatly in kitchen cabinet. It's not in a switched outlet, so could use an on-off switch on the power supply.
Pros: Functional, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Cons: could use on/off switch

Fairly easy to install, I direct wired them (the way it’s build makes getting a 14 gauge wire in a little hard, but not too bad) to a wall switch and the other I direct wired it by pulling power from an outlet and routed it through a dimmer (make sure your dimmer is compatible). Remember this is electrical work if you are direct wiring be careful or call a electrician.... Direct wiring makes it a little harder but if you go with the attached plug... you'll ahve it done in no time
Pros: Functional, Fast / Speed, Eco-Friendly
Cons: direct wiring makes it a little harder

Easy to hookup and provides convenient cabling for AC hookup. Its slim design and mounting holes makes installation under and behind cabinets a snap. Needs the capability to dim the LEDs attached to the power supply. Adding an external dimmer requires more knowledge then the average user.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Nice Design

No, I do not recommend this product.
One of the switches has something wrong and the lights come on during the night by themselves. One of us has to get up and unplug the whole thing. If I had the shipping papers, I would have returned the thing.
Pros: Looks Great
Cons: doesn't work right

Works fine with the light strip. Comes with more than adequate wire length. Had to shorten both the AC and DC wires for appearance. Easy installation.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight
Cons: yoo much length on the wires for under cabinet use

Used this product with Armacost Lighting 12 ft. LED Warm Bright White Tape Light for under cabinet lighting. Did not notice any dimming in the lights due to power loss even when using some extra wire to connect cabinet lights together on the other side of our sink. Great product!

This ballast, or converter is very easy to use with multiple installation options. Plug in, direct wire or install a switch in between.
Even relatively entry level users can install with confidence and be ensured a quality product and use.
