Which Kichler under cabinet LED

benselfAugust 5, 2010

All -

We've been given two options for under cabinet LED -- the Kichler 12054SS -- the "Direct Wire LED"

or the Kichler 12303ni style -- the "Modular LED". Anyone (lightguy?) have any thoughts which one is better? The Modular is almost twice as much, but it is dimmable -

thanks in advance -

Direct wire LED fixtures tend to be larger than low voltage fixtures, some of which trade the bulk of the light fixture for a large transformer that can be tucked away elsewhere - cabinet, crawl space, attic, toe kick.

Benself, did you figure this one out or get any other advice? I'm just starting to research and my KD says I should get something dimable in Juno or Kichler and not to do fluorescent. I'm learning the retail markup is outrageous; the quotes I got from our local lighting store kept dropping when I asked for my price, then for our contractor, then for our electrician...

Quotes I got for the Kichler and Juno were ridiculously expensive too.

I went with the ones from Environmental Lighting.

THey look nice installed!

Thanks, Marcydc. Just saw your post in another thread and was looking over the Environmental Lighting website. Much better prices. I'm glad you like yours installed.
