Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike in W11 Good - but
As a replacement for the same bought years ago. The reason? The toggle switch stopped working, we think worn out. Otherwise fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Baseman Good, but...
...slightly difficult to fit, because you have to thread the electric wire through the baseplate and tighten it, bfore you can screw on the light fitting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Polly nice design, very poor quality screw fitting
Beware! The frosted globe has a metal threat that screws in to the socket with a flimsy plasticky gasket in between. The glue that attaches the metal thread to the globe is unfit for purpose and dries out under the heat of the bulb, eventually crumbling and flaking away leaving the globe balanced precariously waiting to fall off with the slightest touch (eg dusting). I have 2 of these (8 bulbs in all) in my bathroom and although the effect is stunning - and it warms the room on cold mornings - they've only been there just over a year and the 3rd globe has just fallen off. Homebase haven't had any individual replacements but in each of the previous cases they took globes off a new complete light to replace the faulty ones. I have yet to see how they deal with this latest failure and I wonder how long they
are going to keep replacing them, since it's clearly a design fault.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Toby Globes detatch and smash
Bought this from Homebase Syon Lane last time it was half price.
Globes are glued with silicone adhesive to metal screw rings.
They either break during installation, or the slicone detatches with heat from halogen bulbs.
When bulbs need to be replaced you have to unscrew the globes, and it is impossible to screw them back in without detatching the screw ring from the glass.
Looks great, but dangerous design.
I now have bare Halogen bulbs above my mirror- couldn't bear the risk of a globe smashing in the basin as I brushed my teeth etc.....

This is class. We bought two and are very happy. They are very bright and give a bit of a glamour to our two bathrooms. Would definitely recommend.
Also, very happy with homebase. One of the balls was cracked on delivery and we didn't find out until a month later when we opened the box. Homebase replaced without any questions - first class customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hanski3 Poor quality
Really poor quality. The globes are barely glued onto the metal fittings which attach it over the bulb. The first one I had of these, the globe detached from the metal fitting, fell off and smashed. I took it back and swapped it, only to discover a few months later that one of the globes has again come unglued from it's fitting. Luckily I saw it before it smashed this time. Will have to take it back again.
