Good quality light
February 27, 2015
I have a galley configured kitchen with 4 under the cabinet lights. A month ago Pegasus sold two types, one an aluminum and this one. I bought two of the aluminum ones to access them. They just blew away the xenon lights I'd have for 20 years, tons of light! These steel ones don't have amount lumens the aluminum ones have but the configuration is better. So I bought a 32 inch one, installed it and wow! Again plenty of good quality light spread out evenly. It would be hard to be disappointed with these light fixtures.
excellent color temp and quantity, perfect for the kitchen
fixture a bit flimsy making closing a bit of a challenge, a minor con

Great under cabinet light
November 3, 2014
One of the best items in my kitchen renovation. 3 hardwired onto one switch. The LED is such a nice warm tone. Never used my old rocker switch fluorescents but these are a different animal. Use them all the time.
Great hardwired option. Thin. Bronze color matched cherry cabinets. Great amount of light.

Even better than I had hoped for
November 20, 2013
We replaced our old under counter fluorescent lights. We just got tired of replacing blinking bulbs and bad ballasts. Even our electrician was impressed with these. They are very well made and so bright. We look forward to years of maintenance free use. Well worth the money.

Better than any I have used
August 5, 2013
As a kitchen remodeler who uses under-cabinet lighting on nearly every job, I have installed hundreds of various lights from Kichler, NSL, etc. I can say, with confidence, that these are the best of all of them, for several reasons: 1. Higher quality & precision of fit & finish 2. No heat generated, as with all the Xenon lights I have installed Note: Several of my customers have complained about the heat from their Xenon lights, causing butter or chocolate in the cabinet to melt. 3. Much easier to install - don't even have to take it apart as with all the others. Additionally, these have the perfect mounting method - built-in screws that are the perfect length. Most lights come with screws that are too long for a cabinet that has a 3/8" thick bottom. These are just right. I have now installed about 20 of these of every length they sell, and have not had a single problem thus far. Yes, they are pricey compared to the Xenon, but in my opinion, it's worth every penny. These have now become the standard in my business. No more Xenon. I hope they don't go and change this model & design.

New Undercabinets installed
June 25, 2013
Purchased these LEDs after much deliberation over Xenon, LED and others. Decided to put up the money and go this way and regrets. The light from them is perfect. I purchased 12" and 24" units and they provide plenty of light under the cabinets. Ease of installation was just that. A breeze. Once you hardwired in the lines, placing the unit under the cabinet and screwing it in was a piece of cake. Thanks to the screws already being inset to the unit they didn't fall out when tipped upside down.
Easy to install and easy to wire. Excellent light quality
Taking the access panel off and putting it back on is easy but you have to make sure the ground lug is right where you place the screw or it takes some time to get the cover back on. I'd recommend that they rethink how the ground is attached to make it easier for the home owner and it would insure that the unit is properly grounded should we miss the lug when reattaching the access panel. Cost, slightly higher than Xeon and other type lights but cooler and more efficient.

We needed lights that were not only dimmable, but could also be hardwired to each other. These task lights not only filled those requirements, but were very easy to install. The amount of light for tasking is perfect.

Not Dimmable - These Lights Make Buzzing Noise
February 19, 2014
We bought these lights for our kitchen and have been very disappointed with them. They all buzz if connected to a dimmer switch (any dimmer switch, for incandescent, fluorescent, AND LED fixtures). We've made such an effort to upgrade our house to LED's, and these are the only ones that have proved a disappointment. The manufacturer was no help either. If you want dimmable LED lights, you should definitely shop another brand. Also, if you're hoping the glass cover will hide the pinpoints of light you will be doubly disappointed. These lights glare right through the frosted glass and onto the reflective counter top. Good luck.
Installation was not difficult.
THEY BUZZ! These lights ARE NOT dimmable. Frosted glass is ineffective.

Good light output, OK install, buzzy transformer
December 18, 2013
I have not compared this with other similar products, but I was disappointed about the build quality of this rather expensive item. The light output and color temperature are excellent and it appears to put out 50% more light at 1/2 the power of my old fluorescents being replaced. Happy there. The electrical strain relief can only fit one way so beware. Install otherwise pretty easy and straightforward. Once installed, I found that one of the three I purchased had a slight 60Hz hum coming from it. It never ceases to amaze me how poorly Chinese manufactured products are and in this case, even a transformer built to deliver a whopping 8W couldn't be built to be quiet. The 60Hz hum got a lot worse however when I attached the compatible Lutron dimmer to the three lights. Then they ALL hummed and oddly, even when at full brightness (which should ideally be the same as no dimmer at all). So, I love the light output and low power but hate the hum and I may need to give up on the dimmer due to annoying noise. We should make these in USA where we know how to wind transformers and I feel that they should sell for half the price!
High light output, relatively easy install, dimmable
Poor transformer design leads to 60Hz hum in some units or all units when connected to a standard dimmer unit

Questions & Answers
By Donald from New Rochelle, NY on September 15, 2014
What is the kelvin temperature of the lamps?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 15, 2014

It's 3000K, warm white.

By Roman Kaszczij from Courtice, Ontario on September 22, 2014
I need to interconnect 3 of these lights on one wall switch. I have prewired my cabinets with 120V wire (already in the walls).

Can I hard wire each of the 3 units together with 120V wire?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 22, 2014

Yes, you may hardwire them to your 120V line.
By Gordon from Oakland, CA on September 22, 2014

I don't see why not (I'm not a licensed electrician). Alternately you can wire one and use the extender cable to power the one next to it, etc.
By Wes from Johns Creek, GA on September 22, 2014

An electrician installed mine as part of a kitchen remodel, but I know these can be linked with the 6" & 12" connectors sold on this site. Mine are each hardwired directly. I don't know if you can link them without the special connector cables, but there is an installation guide on this site also. Good luck.
By Judy from Lakewood, CO on September 23, 2014

I didn't do it myself but we did connect two cabinet lights. The people who make the lights make connectors for this purpose. If you call Pegasus, they will help you determine the connectors you need.

By Norine from Auburn, CA on July 5, 2014
If I need to order 7 units, 1 for each of the 7 cabinets, will I need 7 dimmers? Can the dimmers be installed under the cabinet, too, or do they have to be installed on the wall?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 7, 2014

Norine, you can install a single dimmer for all 7 lights. The compatible dimmers listed in the Accessories are in-wall dimmers.
By Dennis from Rockwood, TN on July 7, 2014

I bought 7 of these lights of various sizes for my kitchen. They are all connected to one dimmer switch. The effect is great being able to dim them all at the same time and to the same level.
I have them in other parts of my house with no dimmers used. These in line connectable LED lights are very unique.
Good luck with your choices.
By Gordon from Oakland, CA on July 7, 2014

Can't imagine why you would want 7 separate dimmers! Most logical solution is to wire them all on one circuit and (assuming you have a master wall switch for that circuit,) use one dimmer on the master. Given the low wattage of the LED lights, it may actually work better in terms of dimming, since some dimmers have more trouble if the load is very light (like 10-20w). Some dimmers are designed specifically for LED lights, but I've used both types on mine without problems.

By Stephanie from Ohio on April 24, 2013
Are the LED's replaceable? What are the LED lamp part numbers for the 12in, 24in and 36=in?
By Robin from Pegasus Lighting on April 25, 2013


Sorry, but the lamps are not replaceable in this fixture. They are rated at 50,000 hours of average life.

By Holly C from Wilmington, DE on July 21, 2014
Do these UCL's require a separate transformer to hardwire or is it built in?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 21, 2014


A separate transformer or driver is not needed for these under cabinet lights.
By Carol from Oldsmar, FL on July 21, 2014

I just connected it's wires to my existing wires in the wall. It works perfectly without having to do anything else. I'm definitely not a wiz at electrical stuff either but it was easy to install.
By George from East Brunswick, NJ on July 21, 2014

You do not need a separate transformer for these lights. The lights are line voltage, 110 volts.
By Douglas from Cherry Hill, NJ on July 22, 2014

Transformer is built in to each fixture.

By Marvin from Oregon on April 22, 2014
For a 10 foot run of cabinets, which units, how many of them, and how far apart for mounting would be appropriate to provide continuous light on the counter below?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on April 22, 2014


Our recommendation is to fill up the space underneath the cabinet with the largest possible fixture(s).

To determine exactly how many, we need to know whether it's a straight run or if there are bends and also if there are lips under the cabinets that will need to be jumped.
By Bill from Illinois on April 22, 2014

I just installed a 20ft run of these lights and my cabinets were 10ft on one wall and 10ft continued on the second wall in an "L" configuration. I sized the light to the cabinets, so if I had a 15" cabinet, I used the closest size light under that size. I used the cables to daisy chain the lights and this gave me a nice even illumination beneath the cabinets. I don't have any dead areas or hot spots. Lights are on a 3 way dimmer.
By Mike from Providence, Utah on April 23, 2014

These LED units should mounted end to end for continuous coverage. These fixtures come in various lengths: 8-3/8in, 12.25in, 18-3/16in, 24-3/16in, 32-3/8in. Just pick the right combination of fixtures which will fit into your ten-foot space for full coverage. The extra fractional inch of each fixture length must be accounted in your layout. For example five (5) each of the 24-3/16in should fit in a space of 10'1''. If the extra length is problem, revise on the layout or notch cabinet ends for extra space, etc.
By George from East Brunswick, NJ on April 23, 2014

It all depends on your cabinet bottoms. If they are flush bottoms you need to measure and pick the appropriate sizes from the chart. They can be installed end to end with the inline connector provided. A 10' run with flat bottom cabinets you would probably need three 32" fixtures and one 12" fixture. If the bottoms are recessed and they have a partition between them measure and pick appropriate size to fit between then drill a hole in the partitions to run the linking cable through and connect each light together.

By Marvin from Oregon on April 22, 2014
Thanks for the quick response. It is a straight run of cabinets. I am not sure about ridges underneath between cabinet boxes. Will check with builder.

What do you have to say about the reviewers who say these essentially are NOT dimmable because they hum so much? Are these guaranteed not to hum, even on a dimmer? For the prices, I believe they should be so guaranteed.

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on April 23, 2014

Like low voltage transformers LED products need to be dimmed using specific dimmers for optimum performance.

The manufacturer recommends using Lutron's Diva C-L Dimmer for best results -
By Ed from Gig Harbor, WA on April 23, 2014

I bought these last summer. They work great with no hum. We used LED dimmers. The electrician said that using the proper type dimmer was important .
By George from East Brunswick, NJ on April 23, 2014

The ridges underneath the cabinetry are actually the sides of the upper cabinets. You would need to drill holes in them to send jumper wires through to connect each light together in series. As far as the dimmer goes you need a dimmer designed for LED fixtures. You cannot use a regular dimmer because the wattage is so low. We have used dimmers before on these lights and have not noticed any hum. Even incandescent bulbs sometimes hum. Sometimes humming is caused by the quality of the dimmer. Most of the time we don't use dimmers at all because it is just the right amount of light. I have been installing under cabinet lighting for years and these by far are the best I have come across.
By Anne from Fishers, IN on April 23, 2014

Ours are hard wired and on a dimmer switch & they definitely hum. I don't know if it makes a difference if they are on a dimmer or not for the humming, but that was my one big disappointment with these lights. Otherwise, they are perfect. Love the quality and the warm light they produce & the electricians installing them literally said, "These are the best under cabinet lights we've ever seen. We should start carrying these!" I'm over the humming now after a few weeks & it doesn't bother me so much anymore. Good luck!
By Douglas from Cherry Hill, NJ on April 24, 2014

I have not noticed any hum. Mine are kept dimmed most of the time.
