Same as others have complained about this product. Installed lights throughout kitchen under cabinets and less than 2 years (used maybe 300 hours total in 2 years) bulb housing cover melted and blew out bulb. I can only assume the rest will now do are have already begun doing the same. Purchased at Menards.
I cannot believe these things passed UL testing (if they even did) to get into the U.S. (It shows UL Listed on the label)

I attempted to locate using google search and was only able to find a registered website which doesn't sound like a viable business any longer. Here is only information I could find on them. http://www.who.is/whois/zilotek.com/
