Installed in an office/conference room setting. This is peripheral lighting used as task lighting. I put a tech looking chandelier over the conference table. Lets dress up a sterile work space. The tracks are LED energy efficient and attractive. The heads are a little large for a residential application, however they look great in a work environment. The track color is a creamy white instead of a bright white. The ceiling color will have to be adjusted to make this more invisible. Overall, a very nice and affordable fix when more light is needed. It comes out at half the price I usually pay for track lighting.
After reading some reviews, I was concerned about the quality of the product but ordered anyway. IGNORE THEM. I could not be happier with the quality of the product, and what made it even better is how flexible/customize-able this product is. I had to retrofit this to the brackets from an ugly 1980s track set into a reinforced concrete ceiling and did not want to drill new holes. NO PROBLEM - it's great when a plan comes together. I would say the brightness and coverage is equal to 4-5 - 75 watt incandescent bulbs, plenty enough to light a galley kitchen from 14 ceiling. The halogen lights do get hot, but I do believe you can purchase LEDs that will fit. I think they look good as well, the only "cheap feel" aspect was that the light clip was plastic, but I will loose no sleep over this because it looks fine, you cant tell unless you are touching it, and makes it lighter. I am considering switching all of my tracks to this now. It was a but touchy to hook up some of the lights, takes a bit of finesse to get the conductor on the track, but I was able to figure it out with a bit of back and forth.
Replaced an old and ugly fluorescent light in my kitchen with this one to update the look. I am happy with how it turned out. The light heads are very easy to swivel and readjust positioning for on the rail. It's the first track light I've installed, so I can't speak to the difficulty of install compared with other track lights, but it is certainly more complex than swapping out a typical flushmount ceiling light. And the manufacturer instructions were only OK. With that said, if you are relatively handy, you should not have a problem. The most difficult parts were 1. keeping the rail straight as you installed the anchors thru it and 2. pushing the wires into the electrical box around the rail so the canopy (small) could cover everything. Two downsides are 1. the irregular bulb size and therefore limited replacement options (it comes with soft white color bulbs vs my preferred bright white) and 2. not being able to buy an additional light head if desired (I think this would look better with four vs three).
