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.

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.
