I ordered four of these based on a recommendation from a Y-lighting representative and, of course, the online picture. I needed three for an L-shaped mudroom/laundry room, so simplicity was a priority. I also was looking to replace an old-fluorescent monstrosity in my kitchen (adjacent to the open L-shaped area), and the larger version of this light was suggested. I was delighted with the style but shocked to find out that the bulbs (circline fluorescents) were all but impossible to find and buy. Having exhausted Home Depot, Lowes, and 5 local lighting suppliers, I called no fewer than 15 online bulb vendors. Of the two that did carry them, there was a 5-10 quantity requirement (smaller bulbs cost around $20 each, larger ones @ $30). I did eventually find an online source that sold them individually. I probably would have given these lights 4 stars if not for the aggravation of finding the bulbs and the fact that although they are nicely styled, the materials are a bit chintzier than I would have expected.
The fixture is well made, glass diffuser and attractive. Lamp is T5 circline which is not readily available at HD or Lowes. Have to go to electrical supplier. Plate screw in is a bit awkward - just a flat plate - but it looks good.
