I'm surprised at all the negative reviews for this product. Compared to other picture lights I've tried, these have done a superior job of illuminating the entirety of my paintings (~24"x36" giclee stretched canvas prints), with the focal point of illumination being ~1/3 down the painting, as it should be, while having a sleek and aesthetically pleasing look. Importantly, the bulbs are not visible unless you are literally directly underneath the lights. I use them on a daily basis (3-6 hours) for a series of three paintings on my family room wall and they do a magnificent job of lighting up the paintings (and the room). As for the absence of a on/off switch in the power cord that others have referenced, I bought a remote-controlled outlet from Menards for $7 that I use to control all three lights and it works wonderfully. I would recommend these to anyone.
For years, we struggled on how to illuminate our painting over the fireplace. Due to the room dynamics, I did not want to install ceiling mounted track lighting nor install ceiling cans which would effect the thermal break in the ceiling which is also the roof. This was a perfect solution. Since it uses low voltage cable, I could easily hide the low voltage wire in the brick joints as it was routed to the A/C connection. More importantly, my wife loves it and doesn't see the low voltage cable hidden in the brick. As minimizing the power connections to the light source was important to both of us, this was a perfect solution. The only thing I would improve upon would be change the permanent connection from the wire to the lamp (soldered and shrink wrapped) to one that includes a standard 12v disconnect so that the wire could be replaced with a longer or different colored cable. Not all walls are white which would stand out if installed on a bold colored accent wall. I've also replaced...
Nice light that covers a large painting. Very tricky to assemble. I would strongly advise putting the light together and testing BEFORE you attach to wall. Also do not use the wall anchors provided unless you don't mind a shredded wall. Instead, take the 2 screws to your local hardware store and buy the plastic wall anchors. I may buy another one of these lights but will use other anchors. You will need to attach the switch but it might take a few tries to get it right. The light shines a distance from the painting which is better than an ordinary straight down light in my opinion.
