looking for romex wired undercabinet lights

Hey I need some undercabinet lights that I can bring romex into. I really like those undercabinet halogen pucks I find at home depot, but they are wired with lamp wire and I have no place to put a junction nor outlet box. And I don't like the typical fluoro undermount lights. Does anyone know where I can find some nice under cabinet lights that I can bring romex into? whether it be online or in a store. I need to find a place to purchase hard to find electrical parts. Thanks in advance

These are line voltage, 120 volt. Haven't used these yet.

I like these:

I have used some similar to these but a different brand from Menards (Midwest home center) in my house and on jobs. The xenon light is nice, they don't get as hot as halogen. They are line voltage so you just feed them in the back, and they are interconnect-able so you just pick the lengths that will cover your length of cabinets.

I always found puck lights to be a pain in the butt to install and the lamp wire looks "oh so nice" stapled to the bottom of the cabinet. If you REALLY want to install the puck lights run the lamp wire into a shallow Wiremold box and splice it to your romex feed. Remember, the lamp wire is not rated to be run in the wall so the box needs to be attached to the bottom of the cabinet.
