We have been impressed by the function and utility of our under cabinet lights. They do put out a lot of heat which warms the cabinet bottom. So far not a single bulb has failed and even using the 1.25 inch thickness housings is totally covered by the light rail molding we placed at the bottomof the cabinets. We would buy these again and from this company without a second thought.
Overall, the unit is well constructed and lends itself to simple installation. The lens simply slides out for easy bulb replacement. This is a line voltage device with both a high and low setting. Due to a slight flicker on the low setting, I'm assuming the low side voltage is accomplished through the use of a zener diode for voltage division. If this is the case, then I would question the quality of the component and work to ensure that there is no light flickering on the low side. Other lights of this caliber also have more knockouts punched into the rear panel to help the installer center the light under the cabinet. I had to install this light a few inches off center due to only 4 KO's to choose from.

Review of 12012 - KCL Undercabinet Two-Light Line Voltage
Love these lights! I was a little apprehensive ordering lights on-line. They were a little more money than ones at the local hardware store, but they came in a beautiful bronze color and I didn't want the standard white for my new custom cabinets. I am SO thankful that I went ahead and ordered them! They illuminate my kitchen perfectly and create a lovely ambience! We put a dimmer switch on them which helps control the light even more. They also have very good customer service! One of my lights arrived with the cover broken in a million pieces! I called and told them and after putting me on hold for a quick second to call the manufacture, they said they would have another one shipped out that day! Now that is a company I'm going to recommend!!
