This past Friday evening, found Mary and I in the kitchen at the point where we "put it all together". I had just taken the fish out of the oven and walked over to the counter at the sink, to lift it onto the plates. As we stood there, a loud crash and flying glass filled our tiny kitchen. I thought briefly a small meteorite had hit us. It was the heavy glass globe on the ceiling light. It hit the floor, just missing us and shattered. Best I can figure is that the glass, where one of the 3 screws held the globe in place must have cracked from the heat. It was heavy thick, milk glass at the bottom, but thin glass where it was held at the top. My next shock, came the next day, when I went to buy a replacement light. They were 13" in diameter and packed, two to a box. ...said on the box "LED...no bulbs to replace". So I went home and started to work on the ceiling light. The shock came, not because I failed to shut off the circuit, but at some point, I just stared at the base of the light, firmly mounted to the ceiling....and realized that THERE WERE NO SOCKETS FOR BULBS. Just a circle in the center that resembled a circuit board. A series of tiny yellow squares were the light source! I was dumbfounded momentarily.....another near miss of another meteorite! I placed the globe on and turned on the light. Always a dramatic moment.... and it lit beautifully. A very even and pleasing light! A very illuminating experience! Does anyone have experience with this type of light? how long do they last? Notice: These have bad reviews and are junk. Do not buy!
