Best undercabinet lighting


Could someone steer me in the right direction to some good under cabinet puck lighting. Probably want Xenon or LED and not halogen because of heat. Where can I find it? Thanks.

I used halogen - too hot. If I had a do-over I would use LED.

We will be having cabinets that are full overlay and I don't believe there will be any covering below that will hide the track for track lighting but the puck recessed in should work. What would I need for each kit?

Best thing I've seen is the new LED strips. They are about 1/8" thick and self stick really cool and light up the areas very nicely. Do a search for LED lighting and you should find them. A little costly but really nice. Take tight curves and almost hide themselves.
