Rated 4 out of 5 by from This transformer is performing satisfactorily. I purchased this transformer as a replacement for the original which came with the monorail track lighting set. The original transformer worked for about a year and a half before it burned out. Possible cause was we were using a standard dimmer switch which was not compatible for this low voltage system. I note the new transformer comes with a warning that if used with a dimmer switch, only low voltage type dimmers are to be used. I have installed a new low voltage dimmer, and hopefully, this will add longevity to the new transformer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My fingers are crossed that this transformer doesn't burnout like the first transformer. This is the second transformer I have purchased as the transformer this is replacing burned out. If I didn't already have money tied up in the rails and fixtures I would not have purchased this as a replacement. I have not had the best luck with WAC transformers. Their fixtures have worked as intended but the transformers are a whole different animal. As far as I am concerned a product like this should not burnout after a year. If a year is the expected life of WACs transformers then I would have ponied up the cash for some truly nice monorail lighting from Bruck that is not only bulletproof but also of an infinitely higher quality. Read the other reviews of this transformer and you will notice that other people have had issues with it as well. WAC should really do better quality control on their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded 12v 250w Electronic Surface Mounted Transformer I have two monorail systems in my kitchen. One uses the 250 W surfaced mounted transformer the other uses 150 Watt. After 3 years the 250 Watt transformer started to randomly shut off then quit to work. I bought a new replacement 250 Watt transformer. This one is epoxy potted so hopefully it will last longer. Yesterday the 150 Watt started to shut down... I now need to replace the 150 watt also. I hope that the new transformers being epoxy potted will have longer life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent Product I purchase a solorail kit around 5yrs ago and the transformer just recently quit working. The units are covered by a 5yr manufacturer warranty so I contacted WAC to try and get it replaced. The only reason they didn't replace it was because I couldn't produce a receipt and the local retailer I had purchased it from was out of business. Other than that I am very happy with the unit and the modern look it gives my kitchen bar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement transformer, hoping for more capacity I purchased one of the WAC packages, which came with a 150 transformer, and 5 20w fixtures. It gave out after 4 years, and I replaced it with the 250. I was hoping I could put more wattage on the same track, but the transformer got really, really hot, and I backed down to 100w total. It seems to be fine, but I wish I had more light. Not hard to install. No buzzing or startup delay. Hope it lasts a long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from i was ok until it started acting up, transformer shuts off no pattern to it.then starts again cannot understand why.using 20w x 5 so should be plenty of capacity left? i would like to add 2 more fixtures if possible with a larger transformer but presume only 250w is available wonder why company does not recall this or support us home owners with a problem like it appears with many units malfunctioning????

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Best deal as far as monorail kits go but ... I bought 2 WAC lighting monorail kits for a house I built (and presently occupy) in 2004. The kits are very attractive and for the price they are the best deal around. The downside is, this is the 4th time I've had to replace the transformer. This latest transformer seems to be built better than the others. I'm hoping this is the last time I'll be buying one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor reliability, easy to replace Thankfully these transformers are very easy to replace, as you'll need to do so often. I've got two solorails, and I'm on to the second transformer on each after about 20 months. They seem to burn out after perhaps 4,000 hours of use. After my replacement transformers burn out in two years, I'll be switching to something more reliable.
