I had several areas of my kitchen that just did not get any light. I have cataracts and I need more light to see what I am doing. Being able to adjust these lights to point where I want them is fantastic for me. Being able to move the tracks themselves is also a great advantage. The bulbs do bother me, due to the fact that they are made in China and contain mercury, like all the new energy efficient lights now. Also, I just can't go to the store to purchase the type of lights it requires. They do take a little bit to warm up and get bright, but the more I use it the less time it takes to brighten up. Over all the appearance and usefulness of this light is excellent. Personally I would rather have bulbs I don't have to order from the manufacturer.
For the price I paid, this is a very nice track light. No complaints whatsoever. One word of caution -- if you plan to center the middle light along the track then do not center the electrical box. We made this mistake and now the middle light is off-center because the control box is in the way. We could re-mount the track, but I'm going to try to find a matching 4th light to add to it instead. Then we can have two lights on each side of the control box and it will look symmetrical. (This is an installation issue, not an issue with the fixture.)
I ordered this light for my new bathroom and it looks great! I really love the way I can adjust the arms and lights to brighten up dark corners and my shower area. I also like that the lights are somewhat dim at first and then brighten. Turning the light on in the middle of the night does not shock you awake.

We needed some direct light over our computer area but with a sloped ceiling the selection was limited. I bought this fixture based on other reviews and the fact that the 2 arms of the light are independent of each other so can be moved to adjust for furniture placement and the ceiling. I pretty happy with the fixture itself but installation was a pain in the back side. I was very underwhelmed with the mounting bracket. It was unlike most light fixtures and left a lot to be desired. Feeding the wires through the slots in the bracket isn't the way I would have designed a hanging light fixture. Once you get the fixture up to your ceiling you now have about 5" to work with so one person holds the light while the other wires it up. The screws were both cheap and too small. The head was just barely big enough to cover the slot opening and the head on the 2nd screw stripped out while barely turning it. Took the 2 cheap screws and threw them in the trash. Got some good screws from the shop wi...
