"I just decorated my study, and was unhappy with the original pendant fitting. I replaced it and fitted 6 of these in a 3mtr x 3mtr room. With cream walls, the lights omit a bright warm light and is ideal. I would recommend these for kitchens and office areas but would probably be too bright for lounges and bedrooms. I thought they were 230v, but they actually come with inline transformer and wiring loom. I fitted these with ease in my double thickness plasterboard ceilings and used pieces of plastic pipe to keep the insulation away from them."
