Looks good at a good priceThis overhead light looks good and is brighter than my previous fixture. It can accept a 100w bulb, but I installed a 23w fluorescent. Way too much light! I will go down to a 13w fluorescent.
The installation was easy with one important exception. The fixture is heavier than its replacement, and the two screws/bolts that come with it to attach to the electrical box were a bit too narrow; threads barely overlapped the box threads. I had to replace them with screws that fit my outlet box as I was afraid of a possibility the light could slip out.
I would purchase the light again but would make sure I had screws wide enough to fit my fixture.
Lighting Direct ordering was simple and the fixtures delivered within one week.

Wrong SizeI sent in the "Question from the Community" about the actual width of the product. The reply came back that it is 11.5 inches; however, it is only 10.5 inches across. There is nothing wrong with the product other than that it will not fit where I needed it. LightingDirect has been good about authorizing the return and paying for the return shipping since they provided inaccurate information.
