Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FixerUpper171 Poorly Constructed - Do Not Waste Your Money
I purchased this and had it installed by a licensed, union-trained electrician. Everything went fine until he started to attach the glass globe. When he attempted to do so, it didn't fit properly and wouldn't completely attach. When he attempted to remove it, it broke.
This was NOT a DIY project but a job performed by a contractor so this was not the result of error or lack of skill. I will be returning the unit and would not recommend this light fixture to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NWPhillyGal Nice Looking Fixture -- Worth the Effort!
I had this fixture installed in my kitchen in 2011; it's a great looking fixture and I like it a lot. But as others have mentioned, removing the glass cover is not easy. The fixture had been in for almost two years before I had to change a bulb, and the cover just would not budge. I ended up calling Hampton Bay's customer service number (yes, there is one!). They told me to try pushing up slightly while turning, which sounded kind of crazy, but it worked. Fast forward to 2015, and once again it's time to change bulbs. Even though I had my notes from the first time, it was just as frustrating the second time around. Had to tap lightly around the edges, and then push up and turn to get the cover off. But I'm back in business now, and hopefully won't have to face this again for another couple of years. I wish it were easier to change the bulbs, but at least I don't have to do it very often!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by William Do Not Purchase - globe unable to be removed once installed
These lights were installed when I purchared my home. Once the bulbs went out there was no way to take the glass globe. The only option was to break the glass when i saw the housing had fused to the glass making turning to remove impossible. I am currently looking for the globe to replace the broken one and cannot locate it. It looks as if I will have to purchase another whole unit. What a waste. BTW I have two lamps and this exact same thing happened to both.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Michiganian Really flimsy frame. WIll not recommend.
The frame, like other reviewer mentioned, is thin. Really thin. Should have been at least couple of gauge better. That makes it hard to completely flush with the ceiling. Slight gap exists on one side or another. Prefered the smooth bottom (instead of a nut), hence picked it up. The size (width and depth) is decent. The frame is a bit deep and so there is less light getting out from the sides. The floating reflector inside comes down and touches top of the bulbs. Did not like that. For the price, you can do better than this. Installation was usual. Brushed steel looks nice when the light is off. Access Lighting in Home Depot has some good models but they tend to use halogens so that is a negative.

This light fixture is just what the cook ordered for our kitchen. The install was simple and an exact fit. Attractive match for our stainless appliances and lights up the area very well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RBinROC Glass dome fell off
The lighting fixture was installed by our handyman. After several weeks we heard a crash coming from the kitchen and discovered that the glass dome had fallen off. It looks like there are no screws that hold the dome on place. I doubt we will able to replace the glass and will need to buy a new unit.
