Rated 4 out of 5 by Needs two people to fit. Pros: excellent product for the price as it looks good once fitted Cons: Dreading a bulb change! 07 April 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good and cheap This isn't the finest light fitting but it does the job well. Good value for money. 26 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Avoid I bought this light for the downstairs cloakroom, as the size was just right. It was cheap, but because it was from John Lewis I thought that it must be ok. This product is not up to the usual high quality standards of John Lewis product I have bought in the past. I unpacked the product and fixed the base plate to my newly plastered ceiling. The first problem was that the fixing plugs supplied where defective, and the screws far to long. I used my own plugs and screws, and managed to fix the base plate to the ceiling. This is when my problems started. I had read another review which said that it was almost impossible to secure the glass dome to the base plate, using the clips supplied. How right they where!! After many unsuccessful attempts, I was forced to remove the rubber sealing ring, in order to attach the glass dome to the base plate. I challenge anyone to make this work in any other way. Fortunately there is no moisture in the cloakroom so it should not be a problem. Frankly if I had not gone through all of the problems fixing this inferior product to the ceiling, I would have sent it back to a john Lewis and asked for my money back. My advise, is avoid this product like the plague, John Lewis should withdraw it. 11 February 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard to fix Although the base was easy to fix, when it came to putting the 3 clips into place, we found it very hard. After finally managing to fix them, the shade fell down and shattered into pieces. Very badly designed, would be better with screws. Got a refund in the end. 16 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Style at a affordable price My husband was dubious about this light as it was branded as 'value' but I had already spoken to my sister who had bought from this range and rated it highly so decided to go with my instinct and I wasn't disappointed. The light was for a small downstairs toilet and was exactly what we were after. I would say the packaging did fit with the 'value' label and my electrician raised an eyebrow when I showed him the box but everyone had to admit I was right when they saw the light out of the packaging and on the ceiling. 31 December 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Problems with fitting light shade to ceiling mount Although it was straightforward fittting the mount to the ceiling we had great difficulty in fitting the light shade. The three clips are extremely difficult to get into place when having to reach upwards and support the shade at the same time. We ended up breaking the shade - replacement shades are not available seperately so a complete new light fitting must be bought if the shade gets damaged, for example when changing the bulb. We gave up and bought a more expensive fitting with a more user friendly design of shade attachment. 02 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good value Excellent product, very good value for money and easy to install. 17 September 2012
