Great to replace 24in fluorescent – 36-LED 576-Lumen String Light with Aluminum Alloy Shell - Warm White Light (12V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
The light strip was installed in the bathroom under the mirror/cabinet assembly were a 24'' T12 20W 3000K fluorescent was previously being used. This light strip is a great alternative as it provides almost the same brightness, same color temp for less than half the energy consumption.
Because it is of much lower profile than the fluorescent assembly, it can be hidden much more easily under the edge of a cabinet to avoid being blinded by direct light.
Cons:
The wires broke during installation. I had to resolder better quality wires to the strip.
There's no easy way to mount it: I had to drill two holes in the aluminum bar to install it with screws. I guess it could also be glued in placed due to it's very light weight.
Other:
I will get another one and see how they work wired together.
Bottomline:
Great alternative to fluorescent lighting. I used SKU 81475 to power it.
