Rated 4 out of 5Â by Luner Mini Pendant Lights
Ordered two for over our kitchen Island. Quality is good for the money but one light had a defective bracket hanger assembly, which we feel should have been caught by quality control. Generally we are happy with the fixture and hope that the replacement fixture is in good order.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ThreeHourMarathonInstall Good light, bad packaging and too much assembly
First the good. The light is what I was looking for - takes a 100w bulb and is flexible in terms of position/height and looks good. Be careful with your height (or drop) and bulb selection to avoid glare at or near eye level.Mine are probably too low, but I cannot bring myself to change them - too much work!. My rating is based on the finished product only.
The Bad. First, the packaging - the light comes surrounded in very low grade styrofoam packing that is taped in multiple places. This works very well for the manufacturer, but is terrible to unpackage. You end up with static styrofoam bits everywhere.
Assemby - I was surprised at the amount of assembly I had to do. I expected only to select the height/drop. It is pretty much completely disassembled - every piece needs to be put together.It's not difficult, but it is annoying in this price category.
Installation - frustrating to say the least. There is no indication as to the length of bolt that must protrude from the mounting plate in order to fasten the light to the ceiling. It's basically trial and error. Painful as you are generally working from a ladder. The first one took forever to get right, the second went much faster.
Overall I like the lights, but I didn't like the investment in time and effort to get them unpackaged, cleaned, assembled and installed.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by gmat Bought three for kitchen island
Purchased three of these lights to hang over the kitchen island. I had them professionally installed so I didn't have to worry about assembly. I noticed a lightbulb was out yesterday and when I tried to replace it the new bulb wasn't working. When I tried to unscrew it there was a problem and the fixture itself began to fall apart from the bulb socket. I have had these less than a year. I am hoping HD will replace this defective pendant.

I purchased two of these for a hallway in our Florida condo without my wife's prior approval, which is usually a big mistake on my part. I had some doubts myself, but with purchases like this, you never really know how they'll look until they are installed [not to mention that they were on sale that day and there were only two left]. I installed them a few days later while my wife was out running errands, and to my surprise, she walked in the door and exclaimed "I LOVE THEM"
I had to go out of town for a couple of weeks recently...and upon my return, I immediately noticed the new lighting...and it was like looking at them for the first time...they looked AWSOME!!
Today I'm looking for something similar for the kitchen and the guest bedroom. I would definitely recommend these to a friend. They are totally modern...and totally cool!!!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by acg1111 Light fixture
Everything was perfect EXCEPT the plate used to install the fixture had plates with holes that were too small for the screws you enclosed. The electrician was there and he made it work (it took a lot of ingenuity and strenght) -- but I can't loosen it to paint which is the next step. I called and complained and the person was very nice -- sent me a $25 gift card-- and would have replaced the fixture but wasn't willing to pay for the electrician to come and re-install a new fixture. The cost would have been $125 -- what the electrician would have charged. So -- what can I say. I bought sinks and other things for installation in some renovation for my home and never had any trouble. Except for this. And you handled it well -- but still if I was buying a new appliance/ fixture I would want all the parts to work.
