John Lewis Soyuz 6 Spotlight Ceiling Bar, Polished Steel
Like the bar, hate the bulbs
The bar itself is good - looks nice and appears well made. One of the arms swivels - to save on packaging and to allow varied positions - and my only complaint would be that it would be very helpful if both arms swivelled which would mean the central mounting bracket could be fixed at any angle. If you're replacing an existing fitting it can be very hard to site the bracket both with the correct alignment for the bar and avoid existing holes in the ceiling.
And another vote for letting people select their own bulbs. The supplied halogen GU10s are expensive to run (especially with six of them) and have a very short life span.

Nice lights shame about the bulbs
I ordered one of these on line and another from my nearest JL. As ever delivery was very efficient. The lights are fantastic and really brighten up my light poor kitchen. My only criticism is that the bulbs supplied were too strong to use with the dimmer switch I bought to go with them so I had to spend £16 on a dozen new light bulbs. I would have preferred to have paid less and bought the bulbs separately as i'm now left with a dozen bulbs I cant use as they are 50 watt each and the dimmer only lets me use 35 watt bulbs.
All in all would recommend but wish that they came without the bulbs. By the way the price went down by £5 after i'd ordered them.

Attractive and effective light bar
An attractive and really good light bar, but why is it not offered with the option of energy-efficient LED bulbs (or without any bulbs but at a cheaper price)? The bulbs supplied went straight to the charity shop.

Halogen lights ?
I wasn't sure about directional lights but decided they were best for the kitchen application I required. and I decided to fit a dimmer switch which made all the difference now I think they are brilliant and very functional

Let there be light!
Wow, stylish, bright, fantastic. Look lovely installed. Could not be happier! I bought them over a year ago and had them sitting around - we finally got our 'sparky' to put one up - the other 3 he will do in the new year with some dimmers as well.

Soyuz 6 Spotlight Ceiling Bar
Bought this product at the end of July 2012 and whilst the bar itself is very stylish and I would have given it 5 stars, it is hopelessly let down by the bulbs that come with it as they have been pretty much useless. Out of the 6 that come with the product, we have had to change 4 already in as many months.
