Rated 4 out of 5Â by Somedude Good Light - Pain to install for a novice like me
I am by no means an electrician or even an experienced handyman. This was in fact the first light I have ever changed out. That said, what I noticed was the following:
* Overall, the reason I gave it a 4/5 is because it is a great looking light with tons of lumens (4 x 100 watt bulbs). While it was kind of a pain to get it put up (mostly due to me being new to it), I think that the finished product is worth more than the pain in this case.
* The instructions that came with it were poor. They provided a written instuction that referred to parts by the typical alphabetic code "A", "B", etc. However, unlike many put-it-together-yourself kits, these instructions didn't have a list of the parts with pictures of which part was which. Since the parts weren't labeled, it created a little confusion as to which screw was supposed to be used for the mount to the ceiling box.
* My ceiling box wasn't level and once I figured out which screw was the ceiling mount screw, the next thing I noticed is the screws weren't long enough. Yeah, I do happned to have that kind of luck on my first light fixture installation. :P Either way, I removed the old ceiling box and put a new one in and made it level. I also swapped out the screws that came with the kit for longer ones since I was already at Home Depot.
* I noticed that the light can't be adjusted to make it 90 degrees. I just rotated the ceiling box instead, which worked well. Additionally, if you have 8 foot ceilings, the shortest you can make it is 25.5" from the ceiling. That shouldn't be a problem if you are putting it over a table or island (which was our case).

The box was damaged, the fixture was cheap ans the parts did not fit together correctly. Left it up, not happy

Rated 4 out of 5 little bigger than I thought
This is a very nice product but a little bigger than I thought. There is a piece in there that lets it hang lower but if your ceiling is low you cannot use it (unless you want it at eye level). I didn't use it but then felt like it was a bit too high, there is no adjustment at all, it's one height or another.

I used this fixture non-traditionally in my dining area over a long, rectangular dining table. My husband put a dimmer switch on it for me and it looks great! I received wonderful compliments at my last dinner party!
