The price was very good and when we received the mirror, we figured out why. There are several small black spots on the mirror that are from the silver paint that had chipped off the back of the mirror. It should have stated that these mirrors are Main Street's seconds or flawed products, not their discontinued or overstocked mirrors.
The coating on the back of the mirrors was inconsistently applied and appeared thin in places. There were actual tiny holes (4 on one mirror and 5 on the second mirror) at the top of each mirror. We had to cover the holes with electrical tape so that the holes would not be visible. We didn't return the mirrors because they are heavy and large but had we bought a smaller product with the same defects, we would have returned them.

We researched a lot before settling on this mirror for our bathroom renovation. Now that it's been up for a while, I can say it was a really fine choice. Quality materials, looks great, and not that difficult to install (I did reinforce the wall with new short studs, made easier since we opened it up for rewiring). For the price, you can't go wrong with this product.
Looking forward to seeing the mirror however, it was damaged by shipper and wasn't even delivered and sent back to sender. Unfortunately Overstock had to replace the order, BUT I have to wait until the 9th of September for another delivery time which is definately too long.
Very nice looking mirrors. A real bargain compared to the ones I found at local bathroom store and the metal brackets came in more colors. I was especially happy with how well they were packed for shipping. I was maybe a little concerned that the postage was so cheap that they would be poorly packaged but, even though they were obviously bounced around on the truck, the mirrors were in perfect condition.
Mirror is nice looking but the cut out circles where hardware is screwed on chips easily. Cannot see the chips with the plastic washers provided. It is a tough installation even for do it yourselfers. Definitely need two people. It looks great hung up but my son and I both agreed we wouldn't buy a style like this again due to tough install, hardware issues, etc.
We were satisfied with the product, however, the installation instructions, when followed, did not allow enough space between the mounting brackets and the holes in the mirror. We could not figure why this was a problem since the logic was totally sane. Other than the iffy instructions, we are pleased with the mirror(s) - even though the packaging was questionable when it arrived but nothing was broken!
