For the price I was extremely satisfied! Unlike the other reviewers, we had little trouble assembling the product, although it doesn't give many directions. Our only pitfall was hooking it to the ceiling as the fixture we took down had a different mounting bracket - but we improvised and prevailed. It looks great. I had scoured the stores for a contemporary light fixture that didn't cost a fortune and this is very attractive. Granted, like other reviewers I agree it does look up-close a little cheaper that some lights in high-end stores, but it cost hundreds less!
