Nice fixture with a few minor problems
First, the fixture looks good as installed. I didn't find the positioning of the arms a big deal. At first, I did a simple layout on paper with 120 degree spacing, but I quickly realized you can get VERY close by sighting down each arm to the center post. You can only see 2 arms from any position, once installed and if two arms were 115 degrees instead of 120, who would notice?
Glass chipping has been mentioned by others, but what I noticed was a small bubble from casting. Running my fingernail over it resulted in paper-thin glass particles coming off. The bubble was only about 1/8th inch though and not noticeable once installed. The "red paint" others have mentioned is more like a red stain. It's a thin uniform line apparently applied as an accent. I could take it or leave it, but it doesn't look like a botched paint job either.
The directions are really the weak point for this item. Both the print quality and the instruction details were poorly executed. There were several types of washers, but details of what to use where were lacking. There was an elastomer washer that was not specified anywhere (it was also torn!) I placed it under the glass bowl to provide a bit of cushioning, but I don't know if that's correct. So, below the bowl, I have first the elastomer washer, then a wide flat washer and then the nut. The finial and cap are below that.
There is some dry-fitting needed to get everything right. The two screws must come through the ceiling plate just enough so that the cap nuts get adequate purchase, but don't bottom out without making a firm attachment. The same situation exists with the bottom finial. Nuts have to be positioned accurately so the threaded rod extends the right amount to engage the finial.
I like the final result, but one star off for making this more difficult than it had to be!

Bent and wrong color!
First of all the description says that it's bronze...as you can see in the picture it is a dark silver. Second...one of the light fixtures is totally bent..the sipping box is in perfect condition.. I'm not even going to look at the rest of the pieces I'm sending back tomorrow...I was so excited for this chandelier..now I'm just irritated

Good quality, great deal
This light fixture arrived exactly as pictured, in retail packaging with a label slapped on the box. I don’t mind that, but just be aware it is not in an 2DayDeliver box. This light is pretty, but there are three curvy things right above the glass bowl, and it can be a bit frustrating trying to get them equal distance apart. It just never seems to look perfect. Otherwise, it was relatively easy to install and I have no complaints about the quality. It casts a warm color and would be great if you had an upscale rustic look in the room.

A fairly good fixture for the money
A fairly good fixture for the money. Installation instructions, especially in regard to assembling the fixture itself, are somewhat unclear. It took a little while and some fiddling around to finally infer what the assembly instructions meant. Otherwise it is an attractive ceiling fixture. It provides adequate ambient lighting in our 12 x 12 foot dining room with 8-foot ceiling. However, the fixture is limited to two 60-watt bulbs. Given the translucent nature of the bowl below the bulbs, the resulting light is just a little dim for reading comfortably. We are using incandescent bulbs, which just fit within the space allowed for the bulbs. I do not know whether a CFL or LED bulb that could produce more light might fit within that space.

Buyer beware for a Bronze colored fixture
Actual color is grey with some cheap outline that looks like it was drawn on with a Sharpie marker.

The 2 light fixtures I ordered arrived today. They are NOT, I repeat NOT " Oil Rubbed Bronze " irregardless what the color on the box says or the picture featured on the 2DayDeliver website shows.
I have (5) "Oil Rubbed Bronze" light fixtures throughout my downstairs and wanted to keep the theme going. Sadly these are completely different. What arrived today is more of a "muted silver", the box says "oil rubbed bronze" WHAT A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!
These are very cheaply made, very light weight. I could bend them in half without any effort... The only saving grace is the glass shade, that happens to be very nice.
Save your money! No wonder they were so inexpensive

Do Not Recommend
I'm not sure how others didn't have issues with this (although it appears most of the reviews are not for the flush-mount version of the fixture), but the threaded stem is not long enough to attach to the mounting hardware, which means you basically have to jerry-rig the fixture to get it to connect. The instructions are generic (not specific to the fixture), and utterly useless.
I would highly recommend spending $10 more and getting a better fixture from another manufacturer. Also, as others noted, the fixture is indeed NOT bronze colored.

Love the finish
Super simple to install. Love the finish. Matches all existing fixtures perfect... I was worried the fininsh wouldnt match. I installed a dimmer switch, and the combo works perfectly.

Double check the color
Nice fixture for the price, however check the Q&A on color, this is not a great match with my other "oil-rubbed bronze" pieces. Kind of a unique version of bronze.

Love it. Very easy to install less than 10 ...
Purchased this fixture for my foyer. Love it. Very easy to install less than 10 minutes. Took me longer to locate the correct breaker in my box.
