Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Splatterhead Exactly what I needed
I purchased this to replace a 55 watt fluorescent fixture with a circular bulb. I like the design of the fixture, the satin nickle matches my decor without being over the top. This is not a fully enclosed fixture, which is among the reasons I chose it. I wanted to have the option of installing LED bulbs rather than CFL or incandescent. The inch or so of air space between the glass and the ceiling should allow proper ventilation for the LED bulbs, which can run hot. Be aware that you must use specific LED bulbs for a fully enclosed light fixture or you can start a fire. Installation went smoothly, and some of the comments about short screws are legitimate. I had just enough screw end to attach the base. My installation was a little more difficult because I have an older home with odd Bakelite electrical boxes. The other reason I chose this fixture was the option of what color bulbs I could install. My old fixture had a sickly blue hue to it, which I tolerated but never liked. I was able to use 2700K bulbs, which are considerably warmer. I sacrifice some brightness, but I have three 60W equivalents instead of one 55W fluorescent, so that easily makes up for the loss. All in all, I am very happy with this light and will be adding another one over my breakfast bar very soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kirkee Fantastic Value!
We selected this light fixture to replace a valuable "family treasure" when we put our house on the market for sale. After installation, we were increasingly impressed with the style and sophisticated yet simple design of the fixture. Amazing looks. Amazing price!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coddfish Better than flourescent!
One of my sons installed it in roughly 10 minutes, and the newer led bulbs are fantastic! He recommended a bulb that was cheaper and easier to install than what I paid for the circle florescent lights. I went for a three light fixture as I had a 2 light florescent circle light. One of the connections had disintegrated when I removed the circle to replace it. It was 20 years old tho so I was ready for something else. More light than the florescent and since it is in the kitchen, the light is wonderful. Will be in for some patching -plaster as it did not cover the whole space the circle light did. I only have two small areas, size of half dollar and a quarter so patching plaster should work. If necessary, I can paint the ceiling myself but will go for a white,not stark white but possibly with a bit of color. Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan I'm a 70 year old woman so installing this light was not as easy as it might have been for someone younger but doable.
I had to take the first one back to HD because the hardware was left out of the box. I called and they tried to order the new hardware but the company who made the fixture would not replace it so the whole light had to be replaced. This was fairly inconvenient since the nearest HD is 40 miles away. However trading it in for a new one was easy once I was there. I'm quite happy with this light and have installed two more of them both of which were complete.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Itisinstalled Don't purchase unless you are VERY patient.
This fixture was a horror to install. The two screws which must be passed thru the mounting plate weren't the worst part. The bottom part of the round shaft needs to be longer and the round brushed nickel finial threads were not the correct cut. We ended up using both sets of washers (one metal the other silicon), but had to put a toothpick into the finial to allow it to grab the threads of the mounting rod. If they correct the threads on the finial and make the mounting rod longer, I would rate this fixture MUCH higher.

Perfect size with sleek, yet classic design. Wish there was less frosting but overall this is a good value.
