Rated 4 out of 5Â by Cameo Nice Light Once You Get it Up
I purchased this light to go in my bedroom. I wanted something a little more formal than a typical ceiling light. I've installed a lot of light fixutres but the instructions with this one had me totally confused so here's my advice.
Read the instructions to make sure you have all of the parts and none are damaged. Figure out how long you want the light to be and add about 12" to what you think you will need. It's a lot better to have some extra wire up in the box than to cut it too short. The quick link is wonderful! I wish someone thought of that a long time ago.
The wires on my light got twisted too. Turn the loop connected to the ceiling canopy counter clockwise to loosen the ferrule that goes up through the cross piece in the electrical box and make sure to tighten the collar as you play with it. Only use the instructions if you absolutely have to. Once I put them away and installed the light the way I normally do it went just fine.
I love the warm bronze finish and it goes well with my furniture. I also love the tea stained glass globes. They soften the light a bit. I added a ceiling medallion and purchased a dimmer switch so I can adjust the amount of light as needed. The light looks wonderful in my room and I could not be more pleased. I would have given it five stars except for the problem with the instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mike GOOD item
This item made the room beautiful and bright. Used three LED bulbs (13.5 watt / 100 watt equiv.) and a dimmer to set the appropriate illumination level. Mikey likes it! Three thumbs UP

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mom4Life Happy with purchase!
This was for over my kitchen table which has vaulted ceilings, appears a bit small for the space, should have gone with the 5 light, but overall am happy with my purchase. Had it installed professionally so I can't really say much on ease of installation, but for the price you can't beat it. Have had no issues at all and it looks great! Quality product for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by TomK DO NOT BUY THIS THING
Rarely, if ever, do I choose to write reviews on any consumer products, however the experience I just went through this evening certainly changed that. My wife and I spent 4 1/2 hours hassling with this item. The instructions consist of one very short paragraph and a small confusing diagram. Very important details are omitted from the instructions which caused us to have to start all over again 4 times. By the time we figured out how to run the wires on our own (no thanks to the instructions) we were left with wires that were too short to connect. We somehow managed to get them connected and thought we were finally near completion. When I snapped the power wires together I attempted to screw on the bottom cap. There was not enough room to squeeze the connected power wires inside the cap causing them to break loose each time I tried to screw on the cap. After several attempts and many pieces of electrical tape which didn't work, one side of the power wires ripped out of the plastic connector. At this point the chandelier was useless. All our efforts were completely wasted, we are in so much physical pain, and needless to say we are extremely angry (to put it mildly). I urge you to not even consider purchasing this piece of garbage!
