Rated 4 out of 5 by EmJay2016 Value for Money
I bought 3 of these units to replace ones down lighting the kitchen counters. I was looking for sturdy, well made lights like some I saw in use on the Homebase mock kitchen displays, but couldn't see them on the sales shelves.
On the negative side, the lights are a shade flimsy. They are lightweight, which is just as well, because the units themselves do not have screw fixings. Instead 2 small fixable clips are provided, and the unit clicks onto these. The T4 tube is pushed into place at each end and then twisted through approx 90 degrees to hold in place. (I'd suggest fitting the tube before locating the unit). When it comes to replacing the tube, I suspect it will be easier to gently unclick the whole thing, and do the replacement on the counter - I've left a loop in the wiring to help with this). The tube has no cover.
That said, the T4 10w tube gives a good even white light, ideal for a food prep area etc, and does make the kitchen look snazzy and stylish. There is an on/off switch on the unit, and if linking units, each comes with an easy plug-in lead, that will give a spacing of up to 60cm approx. The power lead, fitted, gives a reach of 2m approx.
Despite the low price, the T4 tube IS included. (To replace, they are relatively inexpensive, for these days). Because this unit is so well priced, it is easy to overlook the slight flimsiness, and as they look great, I would recommend this unit to a friend

I would buy this product again, it's excellent in many ways. Just right for me doing art work that needs plenty of light.

little gem of a light, great for the dark corners we all seem to have.i use mine to light a dark space on my kitchen unit,only one little niggle wish it came with a fitted three pin plug.that's the only reason i gave it a 4 star on design if you can live with that it's a great little product.

Perfect for additional lighting under the wall cupboard. Easy to fit but it does not come with a plug, so you have to cut the lead down to the right length and fit your own plug.

Bought these for an under shelf installation in my office. If I had realised just how much light they throw out I would have just gone for the one and not two, however love the fact they simply plug into each other and they're independently switchable anyway.
Not the prettiest looking things but if they are used as concealed lighting then superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by berksian Great little lights
Have used 4 of these lights before these before and recently had to replace one which failed after 10 years; the other 3 are still going strong. Great value lights, easy to fit, discrete and reliable. Highly recommended.
