I bought two of these for sconce lighting adjacent to a bathroom vanity mirror. They do exactly what I need them to do - sit snug against the wall, completely hiding the mounting bracket. I'd prefer an energy-efficient design but so far only halogen has enough light output, with quality dimming and low profile. If fixture alignment is critical, as in my closely-spaced application, the wall box location needs to be perfect because the fixture yoke doesn't offer much adjustment ability. However, this is a common problem and not unique to this fixture.

I bought 2 of these to go on either side of a mirrored door in bedroom, and love them. Needed something with length, but fairly close to the wall. These are perfect. Love how the light is dispersed up and down. Purchased in matte white, and they look so clean and sophisticated on contrasting painted wall. I reversed the fixture to have more of the height above junction box. Bulbs easy to find at Home Depot.
