It's been very interesting to see the progression of technology in under cabinet lighting. When I first started, it was fluorescent 1.75 inch strips. Fluorescent is perhaps the worst lighting for under cabinet. It's high kelvin milky white light washes out the color of most countertops.

The first big technology change was the conversion to more halogen-based sources. Halogen is an incandescent light source and its color rendering is much more suitable for kitchens. The only issues are the bulbs short lifespan, expense of light bulbs and its heat emission. Incandescent bulbs emit 350° of heat and can melt peanut butter and other items in cabinets. Then, halogen became low-voltage and low-voltage became xenon. The color of the bulb improved over time, but it still has the issues of incandescent bulbs.

Then LED showed up and changed everything. LED is efficient, bright and has the color characteristics of incandescent, they last 50,000 hours instead of 1,000 hours. We've covered LED under cabinet lighting in various posts.

Now Legrand has changed the idea of under cabinet lighting. Under cabinet lighting is now flexible with various different appliances you can add for a totally different type of system. It is also flexible in the different components can be arranged and swapped at any time.

Let's look at the Legrand Under Cabinet Lighting System:

iPhone and iPad docking stations are also compatible and accessories for the Legrand under cabinet lighting system. I like the iPad docking stations as you can place it next to a range and follow recipes.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
