Rated 4 out of 5Â by kwalhome With some modifications, this is a good buy.
When I opened the box, it was obvious this was a returned item and had been installed before, but ended up working fine. I had an extra screw for the one that was missing.
It comes with metal rings that press-fit onto the bulbs. These rings are a bit too small and required careful modification of their inner spring tabs to install. Each of the six rings have three small tabs spot welded to them on the inside. Each tab has a notch bent into it that springs out to grab the rim of the bulb. I happen to have a small flat pair of pliers that allowed me to carefully bend a new notch about at the middle of the ring depth for the bulbs to fit. I say carefully, because one of the tabs broke loose at the spot weld, but that was before I had a good routine for bending them less aggressively.
When I installed it to the ceiling mount, it didn't really have enough adjustment available for it to be exactly straight. It's possible the part that screws into the ceiling might be reversible to allow for that, but with the wave design, it's not really noticeable so I won't mess with it. Anyway, a drill and snips or a Dremel would easily fix that.
The ceiling mount itself also isn't as flush as I'd like, but again, not that noticeable and very reasonable for this price-level.
Each of the six light fixtures seem of very good quality and feel. They are smooth, but stiff and solid to hold position. They do tilt from 90 degrees to about straight down and swivel about 340 degrees; very happy with them.
The range of brightness is also excellent and smooth from quite bright for my kitchen to almost as dim as practical to see if the room was otherwise dark.
Finally, it has several blue LEDs shining directly down from the center of the fixture. I have no idea who would want that for any purpose. It certainly doesn't go well with my kitchen table having a blue accent in one spot. An easy modification for that is to place a piece of aluminum tape over them, which is also not very noticeable unless you look right at the mount.
Overall, the quality of the six light fixtures themselves are excellent and knowing the modifications, this unit looks very nice and is well worth the price. I would buy more of them.

I needed a multi-light, adjustable light fixture for my kitchen. This fixture, and it's reasonable price, fit the bill. I was concerned about the blue LED lights I read about in some reviews-they are on the center of the fixture, but I don't find them objectionable. The light is very bright, we utilized a dimmer switch, to allow for various light levels as required. Note though, the LED's do not dim but their light is very soft to begin with. I loved this fixture so much I bought a second for the family room.

So far so good on this light. As others have stated, the blue LED lights in the middle are a slightly strange addition, but we've quickly grown to like them. The light comes with 6 halogen bulbs, looks and works great. I want to swap these bulbs out with LED bulbs in the future but unsure how it will cut down on the light dispersion due mostly to the set up of LEB bulbs. However, so far so good with this light. instalation was a breeze, had to wait to sundown to truly position the lights in the direction that best fit the kitchen where it was put. I also added a dimmer switch, works great

A beautiful fixture that adds more than sufficient light to the bathroom.
Very contemporary yet industrial look. I love the fixture and you cannot beat this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 Good Purchase for the $$$
This fixture is great, Illuminates my smaller kitchen entirely. The one knock I have on this product is the blue LED lights in the center of the fixture. I think the LED's are a great feature for some individuals but I did not appreciate it as the it was too blue and left a blue dot on the tile floors. Perhaps if the fixture is installed on higher ceilings the blue hue may not be bad or noticeable at all. For me though I did not like it and I decided to disable it by cutting the black power lead going to the LED puck and electrically capped and taped both ends. Now I have a great 6 bulb fixture and no blue LED's. This was a relatively easy fix/modification. I wish there was a option to turn the LED on/off individually. I could of purchased the other 6 bulb fixture without the LED, but it would of cost significantly more $$$. All in all its a great fixture .
