I have mixed feelings. It looks cool, but if you have accessible space in the basement to install this, you could also use regular junction boxes and wirenuts. They say that wirenuts aren't reliable. They're plenty reliable when a professional electrician installs them properly. Maybe it will enable more DIYers to do work in their homes.

I've figured out a way of beating him on time. You would hate the quality of the installations and so would I, but I think it could be sufficiently safe to get the stuff approved. (No, I won't tell...)

I could have used that twice in my home. (the other house I am woking on has little opportunity to use one).
Unless they have other configurations I don't think, one can do other than a star/bus config, in which case that switch in the pictures makes no sense (and the dream of enldess lighting configurations is nil), in which cans a regular junction box would be far better.
IMO, there is way to many screws along the front.

The first thing that came to my mind is providing 6" of free length for the conductos in the box. I am not usre if a "terminal block" would have the same requirement as a typical box. What do you think?
