Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PAhomeowner Not so easy to install
The look of these isn't too bad...the cone/shade is beautiful. Although our challenge is that our ceiling is sloped on an angle in the room where we put these. There is no adjustment for that so they stick out at a strange angle before the wire hangs down straight, leading to the glass shade. Also, the full connector sticks out below the ceiling which isnt attractive. When I purchased these online, I thought that part would be in the ceiling and hidden...not the case.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mainekayaker Pretty but exasperatingly difficult to use.
This is the second time we've used these pendants, which is our own fault. The cords supplied are too long; we were able to shorten them on the first pair and they worked for almost two years. Then both of them failed, and replacing the bulbs did not get them working again. Since we like the look of the pendants, we decided to order two more. We weren't as fortunate this time, though: only one of them worked after shortening the cords. Pretty as they are, these things are not worth the effort and expense. Look for something higher end, like Juno or George Kovacs. You pay more up front but they're well designed and reliable. Stay away from Hampton Bay and these poorly made pendant lights!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SammiShiver Looks great...easy to install
Not only did these lights arrive faster than expected, but they were easy to install and they look great over our kitchen island. The hardest part about installation was running the electrical wires through a stud/beam in the ceiling without having to cut an extra hole in the drywall.
We were slightly disappointed that the description says "blue" and the picture online looks blue...but when we took them out of the box they looked more indigo/purple. However, when the lights are on they're blue. Other than that...very pleased with our purchase!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mwolf No light bulbs for this light
I bought three of these 2 years ago and thought they were great, but one broke fairly quickly and now I cannot find a replacement bulb for these anywhere, which is really upsetting. So if you buy this lamp make sure you can find replacement bulbs as Home Depot does not sell the bulbs the older models require.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ejcikacz Junk, don't even bother
I have 3 of these in amber, and I'm on my third replacement. The transformers in these are no good, causing the lights to flicker, turn off and on randomly and sometimes not work at all. Find another light.
