ON ALL ITEMS
Good and easy enough to splice to a 3 prong plug with some easy twist wire caps and some form of strain relief (cable gland, or something).
It costs more than the plug in, you have to buy extra things to make it work, and if you don't stick it in the wall, all these points are a clear detriment compared to the plug-in. But what it does have over the plug-in is availability, likely due to everyone wanting the better product (plug-in) and leaving this one well-stocked.

Got product on sale. Hiding the wire makes all the difference. Buy for a seamless setup.
I have spent close to $1,000 with Nanoleaf. Love the product. But I never received my plug. And they don’t seem excited to send me another. Horrible service for such a great product !
Hey Blake! Our sincerest apologies for the delay and overall experience. This does not meet our standards and we would like to make this better for you. Please follow up with your support ticket and we will notify our Support Team. Thanks for understanding.
After upgrading to the larger PSU lights are nice and evenly lit! It is a must upgrade for a larger setup.
I have two Nanoleaf setups, one consists of 24 Aurora panels and the other, 84 Canvas panels.
I have tried many methods to attach my panels to the wall, including 3M Command strips, Velcro, and even glue. By far, the best attaching method I’ve used is the Nanoleaf two-sided mounting tabs. I’m not sure what was on Aiden’s walls before he mounted his panels, because I’ve never had even a single panel “fly off the wall”, when I used the a Nanoleaf mounting tabs.
Not in “about a day”.
...and I have many of my panels mounted on my ceiling.
Now, let’s analyze Aiden’s off-the-wall claims concerning additional costs one will certainly incur, from Nanoleaf products insanely difficult installation process...
Aiden claims he spent $300 on tape, just to mount his Canvas panels. $300?! How many panels do you have, bro? 5,000?
I’m sure we can all agree that cost is just a little on the inflated side. Aiden then goes on to claim he had to shell-out an additional $300 to an electrician, to simply install the in-wall power supply...
I hate to shame anyone for lacking knowledge in a particular area, and I know Nanoleaf recommends hiring a professional to install the power supply, but dude...
Locate an area in a wall where there is likely to be a part of your home’s electrical circuit. (an outlet, switch or light fixture are all pretty sure bets)
Cut a hole in the wall large enough to allow access to the wiring, as well as to insert and mount the power supply. Disconnect your home’s electrical circuit at the breaker box.
Splice into the power line, and connect the white to white, black to black and ground to ground, securing with marrettes. Connect the output of the power supply to the Canvas control panel.
Reconnect your home’s electrical circuit at the breaker box.
Repair the hole in your wall, using a drywall patch kit, and drywall compound.
If you consider this basic electrical work to be out of your scope, or you simply don’t feel comfortable carrying out any electrical work in your home, that is fine. Just remember, that shortcoming is yours, not Nanoleaf’s.
Electricians are notoriously expensive, and you should have known that you weren’t going to install the power supply on your own at the time you placed your order. Trying to pass that off as a problem with the product is extremely disingenuous, weakens the integrity of the product review community and is totally unfair.
That being said, I am very impressed by the performance and convenience provided by the power supply. It’s far superior to the multiple power adapter solution, in larger, multi-kit installations. No exposed wires means an improved aesthetic for your panel setup.
