led undercabinet - too bright?
I am looking at LED undercabinet lights. I found a brand (Talea) that offers the lengths I need to get full coverage without gaps, but they are a bit pricey and seem like they may be TOO bright - 1 watt high efficacy LEDs every 1.5". The lumens for a 28" bar would be about 750-1000, which they say is equiv to a 90 W halogen bulb. The wattage also seems high - 19 (12VDC).
They do offer half density power strips but not in all the lengths I need. The CS person I am dealing with says these lights dim very smoothly to 0%.
Just not sure about spending so much for lights that will be super bright (even if they are dimmable). The cost for 210" of lights is $1500 (light bars only).
Any thoughts or suggestions?
