I purchased this light looking to spend as little as possible. I'd already purchased a light that would not work in the application, so was trying to cut my losses b/c I can't return the other. I like the simplicity of the shade and it provides light. However, a few caveats are in order. The bulb that is included (and required to be used) is not as pretty as it is shown in the photo. The light is just shy of hitting the wire cage and the wire cage is required to catch the bulb should it fall from the socket (yes, it's that iffy). There is a delay in its providing light compared to the traditional lights. I've been told by my electrian that this is normal, but I wasn't expecting it. Finally, the "hardware" (actually flimsy plastic) used to suspend the fixture from the ceiling leaves something to be desired. The light hangs above a huge island, so shouldn't be messed with at all. Otherwise I'd be worried that if someone decided to take a closer look it may be inadvertantly yanked from the ceiling. Overall, love the look, but quality is certainly lacking.
