" We have used around 15 sets of these now below bridging units on fitted bedrooms & they never fail to please. Great value & far more robust & reliable than many others on the market. "

Love these
28 Mar 2011
By DIYgiveitago

" These lights give a really nice glow to our kitchen, we have sparkly laminate and these lights make a rainbow effect on the laminate because of the sparkly bits...it looks fab. They do get quite hot, but this is not a problem so long as you dont intend to touch them. Really easy to fit and highly recommended. "

" Thia is a nice piece of kit seems to be well made and fairly easy to fit and at a good price, my only concern is that if the've been on for a while they do run very hot, in fact too hot to touch the chrome sides other than that I'd recommend them. "

Not great Quality
19 Jun 2011
By John117

" I bought 2 of these packs (and 3 additional transformers) as I needed 4 undercabinet lights and 2 downlights from a bridging piece. They come pre -wired with a fairly long lead so I had to cut this back under the cabinets but this is not really practical with the transformer supplied as it has a plug in connector block . Five of the six lights worked ok but the connector for the bulb on 1 light hadn't been secured properly and fell out when I investigated why it didn't work. Screwfix exchanged this as usual without any problem. I would advise you to buy individual lights and transformers if you want to put these under cabinets to avoid having to find a home for the connector block and the excess cable. "

Looks nice but not reliable

" This looks like a good downlight set for the money and it was easy to install.
Bad point is that the transformer only lasted 10 days before it packed up. "

Halo Cabinet Lights
12 Nov 2013
By YoungFogey
, Wigan
" A very poor bulb connector system results in overheating of the contacts and, inevitably, lots of frustration.
Halogen lamps get very, very, very hot.
Halo 'engineers' seem to have over-looked this fact.
I spent far too much time 'tweaking' the bulbs and wasted cash on replacing bulbs. I tried leaving the glass cover off to reduce the heat. Eventually, I decided it was not worth the 'hassle' and bought a replacement set of three. Transformer and wiring surplus of course. Again, a wasted outlay since the problem is inherent in the contacts.
Cheap is cheap and the Halo 'technicians' should be ashamed of this product.
If anyone knows of a suitable replacement cabinet light fixing which does not have the contact problem of the Halo product, please let me know. If I could continue to use the existing transformer (12v) and wiring it would be a even better solution
HEEEEEEEEEEELP

Looked great until...

" When first installed they looked great, lovely bright light. Problem is they're very hot and heat up the cabinets. Also the bulb connections aren't great so you think a bulb has blown when it hasn't. Six months later and only half work, reckon I'll have to replace the lot. "
