Rated 5 out of 5 by Hilsander Minimalist and effective
Read the reviews before buying this product re difficulty in fitting but as it was fitted by an electrician there were no problems. The flexibility of the lights allows great effects, as well as just downlight over the large wall mirror we have positioned beneath them. Looks exceptionally smart and uncluttered and we are delighted.
So pleased we are now buying the singles of this light style for our main bathroom

Rated 3 out of 5 by PuBer1 Stupid fitting problems
I had to return the first one I bought, as it was impossible to unscrew one of the fitting screws. I guess someone had already bought it and managed to destroy the head of the screw.
Who on earth designed a light which has only one hole for the cable, and that hole is not central. Surely every one has the power cable coming from the wall in exactly the centre of the light fitting. I got round this by getting someone to drill another hole.
I agree that the screws holding the light to the base should be longer - a really tight fit is not possible.
However, once it's up it looks really good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stephen34 Nice looking but poor fitting
I bought this at Brent X store. The light is to be used as a bedroom reading lamp over the bed.
It looks very nice. Fixing the backing plate to the wall was no problem. Wiring it in was a bit of a fiddle but not too bad.
Unfortunately the cover with the lamps attached which sits on the base plate does not fit well. It is very wobbly. It probably won't fall off the wall but it leaves a gap. It seems to me that the screws supplied are not long enough to pull the cover into the wall mounted base plate. Also the screw heads on the cover, as supplied, were atrocious. Supposedly they were cross head screws but two were neither cross head nor slot head but just a mess. I managed to screw them in eventually, but they were too short anyway.
So 4/5 for nice appearance but -1/5 for poor finish and bad fitting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pablo25 Very difficult to fit and wobbly when fitted
A nice looking light, but very difficult to fit due to poor design. Worst of all the short locking screws make it impossible to properly tighten it onto the base plate, it therefore remains wobbly and could potentially be prone to moisture ingress. Frustrating but JL have responded brilliantly and are sending me a replacement. Fingers crossed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jay27 Tricky to fit
Looks nice now that it's up, and it met our needs by being operable separate to the ceiling lights--but a real problem to wire in. Cables foul on the on/off switch. Disappointing for such an expensive light.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stuartt64 Wobbly casing
Whilst the light unit is attractive and provides good spot-lighting, the body casing does not fit tightly onto the back plate. This means that when adjusting the angle of one or both of the spot lights, the casing wobbles.
I returned one unit to JL presuming it to be faulty but the replacement is just as bad. It's as if the screws are too short to secure the casing sufficiently. Very unhappy with it and suggest that JL tests this product as it does seem to be fit-for-purpose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LDS57 More than "fiddly"
Poorly designed. Possibly OK if you can either move the power source or you are not bothered about the exact position of the lights. Otherwise a nightmare to position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel28 Best looking bathroom lights
These bathroom lights are the most stylish I could find - and I looked at loads. They are well made and the positionable spotlights make them ideal for shaving. A very nice finishing touch to our new bathroom.
