It's what I had been looking for in terms of design for over our kitchen island. Very sleek and modern but fits into our comfy casual style nicely because of it's almost not there presence. Most people entering our home don't even realize we have a fixture there! This is perfect since with an open floor plan I want to hang a more substantial fixture over the adjacent dining area table and needed something unobtrusive.
It arrived packaged nicely but with no instructions at all. It was easy for my husband and I to install. Comes with a remote as stated, however also no instructions on using it. Looks like multiple units can be controlled from one remote. Remote has On/Off capability (although if you're using a wall switch, we are, it needs to be left in the On position for remote to work) and is preset with 3 color temp settings. You can also control color with +/- buttons. Issue I have is that it doesn't remember the settings so you have to go through the motions of selecting the color temp you like each time. It defaults to the x-ray machine blue/white color which I find too cold.
Lastly, we figured out by accident that if you do use a wall switch in place of the remote you can cycle through the 3 preset color temps by switching On/Off rapidly (for those times you can't find the remote!).
This looks perfect in our space, which is a newly remodeled kitchen that looks very similar to the stock photo (modern, dark cabinets and white countertops). It is VERY bright, which is great for food prep on the island. The ability to adjust the level of brightness and the temperature of the light by remote is a great feature. When our countertops were installed, one of the installers loved it and took pics to get one of his own.
