    Led light damaged

    Posted by Lilian Shih on Jul 22nd 2021

    I bought two lights 4 years ago. After two years, one light star to twinkling periodically. It stopped a year ago. Now it returns to a flash light again. I'm not sure how the warranty covers the replacement. The quality of the led light is very unstable.

    AQUC LED light

    Posted by Kevin Gaffney on Feb 1st 2021

    My 24" under counter light just arrived in perfect condition thanks to Levi's packing job. Overall I'm very satisfied with the light. I chose to go the plug-in route and it was very easy to install. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was, as other reviewers mentioned, the plug in connector feels a little flimsy (but is functioning okay, so far) and there is not much difference between the two light levels available..

    Great Looking product! But, new light color is different.

    Posted by Davis on Sep 15th 2020

    I had bought 4 of these about 5 years ago to replace flourescent fixtures. They looked good and had a nice warm color that really looked good on my granite. I had left a couple of halogen puck lights over my stove top. One of them failed and I decided to continue LED. The new AQUC light fixture looks just like the old ones and has a rating of 2700K. However, when I finished the instalation, the light colors didn't match. The new fixture looked more yellow than the old fixtures. I had to swap out a single fixture across the room where it wouldn't be noticeable. So, beware if you are trying to match the light color on the old fixtures. Otherwise, the performance of the old fixtures has been great and they are a quality product.

    Great Quality

    Posted by on Sep 7th 2020

    Just received my package of lights and very impressed with both the quality of the lights and how well Zack packed my order. Much better quality than what you find at the big orange and blue box stores.

    Just what I was looking for!

    Posted by Steve on Aug 28th 2020

    After searching around online and at home improvement centers for under counter lighting, I settled on these lights. I needed a hard-wired option that was a dimmable LED light. These lights are also very well made with a glass diffuser that spreads the light softly and evenly. Installation was easy and customer service was first class. I highly recommend these lights!

    Replaced Florescent fixtures

    Posted by Pam R on Feb 10th 2020

    I was tired of replacing florescent bulbs every few weeks, so I bit the bullet and bought these fixtures in both 12" and 24" sizes. The fixtures look great. They're easy to install, have a low profile under the cabinet, and look great. Nice to be able to dim them -- didn't think I needed dimmable under-cabinet lights, but it's a nice thing. A couple of small gripes: I hardwired all of them--the knockouts didn't knock out without some bending. The clamps for the knockouts were too large for the holes already in my kitchen, so I bought 3/8" rubber grommets. I didn't buy the dimmer switch from AQ as it was overpriced by a lot. Great customer service (thanks Barb!).

    High quality; wish the bright was brighter

    Posted by Trey Casimir on Feb 4th 2020

    Many before me have commented on the quality of these lights. What I would say is that, where I expected an "industrial" light, what I received was more like a stereo component -- sleek and stylish as well as functional. My only quibble is with the two light levels offered. One setting is very slightly dimmer than the other, but it would be nice to have a greater variation -- say, an "ambient" light and a serious "work" light. As it is, you get a choice of, say, a 55 watt light or a 60 watt light. I don't know the actual wattage, but they are very similar, and neither is as bright as I sometimes want for under cabinet work.
