Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy Beautiful light ... BUT!!
These are really beautiful. I put 3 over my kitchen sink & love the quality of light emitted. However, the sockets are such poor quality they won't hold the bulbs. Bulbs cost $5 - $6 (bi-pin), are fragile & you have to push so hard to make them stay in place (and even that's not a sure thing) that the pins bend & break before you can find the right way to make them stay. It's really a shame, but these are horrible quality. And I have 3 - will have to replace the whole system with better quality lights with easy to change bulbs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by glad2bdad Cheap quality of construction
I have the same problems that most others have. Seems like fairly common.
1. The bulb seems to be spring loaded inside the socket. The spring becomes weak and the socket doesn't hold the bulb tight anymore. There is a loose contact and the good bulb doesn't glow. It's almost impossible to replace just the socket.
2. The bulbs were hard to get locally. I found some on e-bay and Amazon.

While these pendant lights are attractive and affordable they are very poorly constructed. Try finding replacement bulbs through Home Depot. What a joke. Then after replacing the bulb on one of the lamps for the third time I droped the bulb cover (my fault) I found the socket to be shot. Don't waste your money. Start with a higher quality more expensive fixture and save money in the long run. Trust me this is the worst.

Nice light, looks great in the kitchen. But I would recommend before buying it to make sure your Home Depot carries replacement bulbs for it. Mine does not. The 10,000 hour halogen bulb went after three months of summer use (long days, hardly on at all). I will say, local HD management was very accomodating in my quest for a new bulb. Will write my next review 10,000 hours or less from now.

Bought 3 of these 3 years ago to go over a kitchen island. We loved them... for maybe a year. Then a transformer went out. And then the issue with the bad bulb mounts that causes them to flicker and go out, even though bulb hasn't burned out yet.
I'd like to find replacement bulb holders, but doubt that's even possible.

Really like the look of these lights over the bed, however, you might want to install a dimmer as they are quite bright. Also one of the ones we ordered broke shortly afer installation as the bulb won't stay in and keeps falling out. I still really like the lights and will get another.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by darandy Beautful but horrible quality
They look lovely but are not very good quality. We have three of them over our island in our kitchen. Two of them have burned out already and the bulb housing is very fragile so be careful when replacing bulbs.

Good looking product. Bad quality. Tranformers burn out quickly & bulbs tend to burn out due to the loose connection. Not worth the money. Cost me twice for an electrician.
