Let's start with the basics; this is a beautiful light with great quality! We ordered the LED version as I like low power option that I don't have to worry as much about leaving on and I generally hate fluorescents (slow startup, poor color quality, etc).
I'm giving the product 4 stars instead of 5 because for the price the LED system could be improved. Bruck is using a Cree XP-E LED run by an integrated 700 mA driver. They've chosen a 3000K color temperature and rate the 3W system at somewhere around 120 lumens.
I think the light is a little dim and would prefer a softer yellow. I think a Cree XP-G led driven a bit higher (top end is 1.5 A) @ 2700K would be a better match for this fixture; ideally the 90 CRI model. A Cree XM-L might even squeeze a bit more light out (but doesn't come in 90 CRI AFAIU).
All-in-all a very nice light; but for the price I believe the LED option is immature. It's a totally different light; but the Cree LR-6 puts out amazing LED and sets the bar for my LED expectations (both in color quality and brightness). A small package like this can't match the LR-6 but I believe it could come a lot closer with more atttention to detail.

I have not yet gotten it installed but it does look very nice and solid. It will be very attractive. This light has a light turquoise and uses the halogen light. The only problem is that it does not come with a bulb, which is a specific fit. I was upset because you pay this much for a fixture and it does not come with a bulb. I called the Bruck people and they said they do not include it because you can get either the 30 or 50 watt bulb but the retailer should have put this as an option in the website. Unfortunately, Ylighting does not do this.

Not much of anything for the price and it should be made better for the price. You think if you pay more you'll get better craftsmenship. But its not made in the USA

I didn't install the lights myself; however, my contractor had an easy time for the installation. There are two lights to illuminate the vanity area (42 inches) and I am pleased with the amount of light. I am pleased with the color choice...smoke. It goes nicely with a muted green/cream color scheme.

These lights are pefect above our bar height eating area in the kitchen. We got the smoked glass version and the color does show against the inner white glass center. Just make sure you get the correct bulbs. There are a few that look the same but you need the 12 volt.
