No Hassle Service
Great service. I ordered it and they shipped it. No hassle. I got what I wanted when they said they would ship it, 1 week

Pretty good, not great. Updated look saves it from having lower stars.
I received this product slightly damaged as there is a little scratch in the base plate from some of the hardware being poorly packed. The whole product comes packaged in a massive amount of Styrofoam which is pretty disgusting in this day and age. Clearly it is made in a cheap assembly line in another country. The wiring appears to be quality and the heft is pretty solid. You will need to bolt this to the wall and hardware is included for that. Just bolting to the J-box will not be sufficient. The j-box connection is where this thing doesn't shine. The back of the fixture is completely flat so if your J-box isn't recessed enough, the back of the fixture will interfere with the screw heads and/or wires if you can't get them past the level of the wall. Also, there are 4 holes in the fixture to affix the fixture to the j-box but either I have an old j-box missing modern fastner points or this thing just doesn't come with the right hardware. I could only get two of the included screws to match up and the other two holes line up with slots that don't appear to have an easy way to put fastners in there. The fastners that hold the glass on are plastic and are the only thing holding that heavy diffuser in place...if one breaks, I imagine that thing will come crashing down and make a big hazardous mess. With all four bulbs on high, this thing puts off A LOT of heat...which is why I'm concerned about the glass coming down...I'm not convinced the plastic screws will hold up to the high temps and thermal cycles....time will tell. All of that said, I like the look once it is in place and it is a nice bright light without being harsh. Good luck.
