CounterMax 87452 MX-X12-LX 3-Light Xenon Under Cabinet
Strength, durability and beautiful finish are features that set the CounterMax MX-X12-LX Series apart with its extruded aluminum housing. These xenon under cabinet lights conceal long-lasting, low-voltage Xelogen bulbs that distribute a crisp bright light. Hinged tops allow for convenient bulb replacement, and push-in wire connectors in the junction box make either direct wire or plug-in installation quick and simple.

Maxim 87452 Reviews
Rated 1 out of
Their purchase was a catastrophe!Though the lights appear well made and have several great features, the qualities fail to compensate for the the lack of information and the misinformation surrounding the product description/specifications including the fact that Maxim has replaced them in their line-up with a new model which appears to be identical except for the power source connectors. Had I been aware of the facts, they would have certainly made me hesitate in pursuing the purchase of these lights and I'm feeling strongly that it could be argued that the nature of omissions in product information border on misrepresentation of the product(s) involved. In any event, my project remains unfinished and the lot of items purchased are being packaged so that they can be reurned for credit.
After reading the description and viewing pictures of the item, several Maxim CounterMax 87453 and 87452 MX-X12-LX under cabinet lighting units were purchased. Their main selling point was that "push-in wire connectors in the junction box make either direct wire or plug-in installation quick and simple" implying that the lights have junction boxes. Unfortunately, the statement was totally misleading and the assumption totally wrong. Imagine my surprise when the units arrived and I discovered that there was no junction box and no way to connect the lights to a power source. Several phone calls produced the facts (previously undisclosed) that the â??junction boxâ?? is not built into the unit and that the junction box(es) and/or cords/cables must be purchased separately before the units can be made functional. Of course, that little factoid added additional time and cost to what should have been a simple project and then the situation was worsened.
Deciding to 'bite-the-bullet', I ordered the missing accessories and was overjoyed at their arrival thinking that I was less than an hour from putting this project behind me. Unfortunately, the joy was short-lived with the discovery that the j-boxes and cables I received were for the 'new model lights' and not compatible with the discontinued units (same cable function and purposes for what appear to be identical lights, simply different connector configuration preventing any possibility of crossover use between the units). The final straw was the (again undisclosed) discovery that Maxim had discontinued this series of lights.
One would be well advised to avoid these products at any cost.
