When I ordered I was unsure if this fixture would look like a lightsaber once up. However, I am happy to report, no lightsaber. This is a substantial fixture, with clean lines. Do note the distance off the wall when purchasing, as it is larger than the picture reveals, although not unsightly at all. We used this fixture vertically on either side of vertical mirrors in our master bathroom and it looks great. Great makeup light output.
I bought my first set of these about 5 years ago and each transformer and light has had to be replaced due to the Chinese manufs. making the bronze paint covering the tracks non-conductive to the electricity that it needed to carry. Although I have a new set now with larger transformers, the rails are still overheating and individual heads are going out randomly. They were ALL installed by a certified electrician. He warned me that there were probs in the past, but they had been fixed. They were NOT fixed. I wish I had spent a few more $$$ and gotten track lights that lasted longer with fewer problems. I need to replace three tracks of these once again for the second time.
This is a beautiful pendant that will handle a 100w bulb. The kit was packed well and arrive not only complete, but with two bulbs included. That was a pleasant surprise. The instructions were easy and the light went in easily. The only "downside" is that the ceiling cover could be a slightly diameter. It is the same size as the junction box, so if not exactly centered, a wedge of the j-box can be seen. That said, it is an elegant and unique modern design which we have received compliments on. Quality is top shelf.

This is the cutest light fixture ever! When the light is on, the light shines through the crystals for a great effect. The pendant looks very sharp and modern especially since there are no hanging wires or rope chains. The pole is adjustable for higher ceilings. I could not be more pleased with this purchase!
This is the second sconce I've ordered from the George Kovacs line. (the first pair I purchased where the glass shade sconces ($107.00), alot of bang for the buck!) You can't beat the design/style and quality for the price.
I've been an admirer of Kovacs' designs since I was a college design major. Beautifully designed fixtures. The best feature is that it has two 50 watt halogen bulbs, much brighter than any of the other bathroom lights I looked at. The chrome plating is generous and deep, like an old Packard bumper.
This is a case where you get what you pay for. Some small scratches and crooked arms that had to be loosened and readjusted. Also--the trim band on the shade was uneven in parts--mostly on the front (unfortunately) and the only slub in the fabric is also on the front. If it hadn't taken so long for this product to arrive, I would have sent it back for a replacement in hopes that even though Kovacs let this thing out of their warehouse looking like it did, that they might actually send a decent replacement. I have a policy of only writing good reviews...but people really should have a warning on this one.
The 12V transformer has burned out twice now - almost setting our house on fire the 2nd time.
Be forewarned - if you see the lights randomly dim like you're having a brown-out, that's a sign that the transformer is about to go - be pro-active and get it off of your ceiling ASAP. When mine went the 2nd time, it was so hot that I had to use a potholder while un-installing it. The track had actually become fused into the transformer and I had to break it to get it out.
I'm going to stick with line voltage (i.e. 120V) lights from now on.

We have had them for over a year now and they look and function well. Would recommend putting the bulbs in after all construction is complete as the filaments are fragile (we lost over half the bulbs before we started using the lights) and the bulbs are not cheap.
The light is lovely and the electrician seemed to get it installed pretty easily. However, I placed one on either side of the mirror and the vanity is still too dark to put my make-up on. I have to add additional lighting someway.
I like the lamp very much, the quality is very nice. Assembly was relatively easy, though I had some difficulty getting the socket assembly onto the top end of the pole(s). The style of the lamp is exactly what I was looking for.

These lights are very attractive. We have three above our master sinks. One on each side of the mirror and one between the sinks. Light color is very nice and gives off a glow that even makes you look good in the mirror. Highly recommended. One glass came broken but a quick email to customer service and they quickly handled a replacement glass.
Unlike a lot of other track kits- this one uses little plastic which gives it a very high quality look. Overall easy to install. The trach is not as flexible as some other light kits, so you can only curve it so far before it "creases"
I've installed many fixtures in my home before and this was by far the most difficult. If you need to shorten the cords be sure to have second person help you so you can hang it evenly or better yet hire an electrician! Otherwise - great product and this was the best price by a mile!! Was almost double the price at "major" home improvement stores...
I was very hesitant in purchasing this kit because the price was so much lower than some I had looked at in stores. I was very impressed with the quality, easy installation, could not have been more pleased
This beautiful, modern light fixture adds sophistication to my master bedroom. I like the fact that you can adjust the light up and down just by pushing or pulling the counterweight. This light looks fantastic!

I bought this lamp with in mind for using it as a picture frame light on the wall. So I would avoid the showing of plug in wires like a traditional picture frame light. It didn't look very professional though because the light became to broad and focused more on just the picture.But this is still a great lamp! Sexy, handsome and stylish! Plus great value for your money,even with all the extra costs I had to pay to ship to Canada. Very happy and have had some nice compliments on it too.
The arm will not stay in one place when arm extended. called and asked about it answer don't know how to adjust tension on arm so i tied it in position and leave it there looks like h--- but works. if you don't care about adjustment of tension i don't care how it looks when people see it
I searched through hundreds and hundreds of lights and ended up buying 2 of these Bling, Bling pendants. They arrived fast and in perfect condition. One large one for over my dinner table and a smaller one for my foyer entry in my downtown condo in Florida. They look really great! One-of-a-kind and a real attention getter in a good way. Love the playful, hip, modern style... yet also not really too much over the top. They have a sophisticated edge to them as well. The frosted white glass is just thick enough and not cheap looking plastic. All the chrome is very bright and reflective. The chrome hanging rod is firm and has such clean lines coming from the ceiling. NOTE: I have both of them on a dimmer (really makes a difference) and I also installed these cool crystal-cut bulbs that I found at Home Depot which really add to the sparkly look. The cost was not that much more than regular bulbs and looks ten times better. Love the crystal patterns that flood around the room on the walls from the sides of these terrific lights. Don't fear: It isn't too bold and glittering like a big, tacky Disco Ball... but, just the right amount of "Bling". Very happy customer here! Wish you the same success with your choices.
