This is a great value for what's included. Only a couple minor cons... because of the way it's packaged, it took a little bit of time to get all the arms adjusted to be spaced equally. Also, I wish it would have come with a longer chain and cord (it's only about 5', and I needed 8' for my 2 story entry). I had to replace the chain, then rewire it in order not to have a splice in the middle. Fortunately I had some leftover chain from another light fixture and lamp wire on hand, otherwise I would have had to purchase a both, which could have added another $30 or $40. Something to keep in mind.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Looks Great, Stylish, Nice Design
Wow, it took a number of attempts to get this one installed, wired correctly AND at the right height from the ceiling. You need to run the wiring up through the installation bracket middle to connect the electrical or you will be pulling it down to start again. Also, have something to sit the light on elevated as you connect the wiring, otherwise your helper will be straining waiting on you and holding it up. Patience is a good word for installing this one, but it looks great done.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Stylish, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
This chandelier looks great in our dining room. At first, I was concerned because I have 8 foot ceilings. I actually used about 8 links of the chain, and it hangs beautifully. It takes 60 watt bulbs (or less), yet it still provides a nice bright light with the alabaster glass shades. Now I wish I had installed a dimmer at the time; however, I could use 40 watt bulbs.
Very pleased with this light fixture. It arrived with a broken globe so I asked Home Depot about purchasing a replacement globe. Didn't have to. They sent me a new one. Could not be more pleased. Thanks, Home Depot.

This light was smaller than pictured and ours arrived crooked. We could not get it to hang straight even by manipulating the moving arms. We ended up buying a larger more expensive fixture for the kitchen.
Product was exactly what it stated. Looks fairly decent. Little hard to instal but I'm no electritian. Overall very happy with my purchase.

Review 9 for 5-Light Matte Black Chandelier
Affordable Contemporary Chandelier
PostedOctober 3, 2011
I had purchased this particular chandelier to replace our pendant lighting in our nook and I do NOT regret it whatsoever! Not only was the price more than reasonable but it has a sleek and modern look to it that complements any decor given its black color. Furthermore, the connection of the wiring is very simple and installation was a breeze for the most part - the only difficulty came when having to hold the chandelier making sure it didn't fall since we have 12' ceilings and I was the only person doing the installation. Overall, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this chandelier if you're looking for something affordable, modern, sleek, and everything in between!
It was easy to install...no surprises! The lighting was completely assembled. We just had to move the lights into position and hook up to the ceiling. It was also light-weight which helped when installing. We also installed a dimmer to create the perfect lighting atmosphere as needed.
Pros: Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I have been slowly but surely renovating my kitchen and breakfast nook area. I spent hours online and in stores searching for the perfect light fixture for the breakfast nook and here it is! It is very pretty with beautiful glass shades. I added a coordinating fabric sleeve over the chain for a custom touch. Simple, straightforward installation made it easy to switch out the old fixture for this new one.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Stylish, Very Bright, Nice Design
This is a good looking chandelier once I overcame its' missing an essential part, the quick clip needed to attach the chain to the top loop of the fixture. I used one of the chain links to fashion a clip using a wire cutter and pair of pliers. It looked great after I used a black magic marker to color the cut. I normally would have assumed that this missing part was an oversight at the manufacturer but I bought 2 and it was missing in both.
I love the way it looks!! The light it brings to the room is fantastic. It hangs well, but the installation could have been easier. I would prefer the wire colors to be different and not the same black wires with one having slight edging. Other than that, I have no complaints. I'm pleasantly surprised!
