Honest opinions about how to buy Appliances and Lighting.

Lets look at this light from Holtkotter...

Holtkotter Light

Holtkotter is a German company renown for quality, and this fixture is a fine example. First, it has a stainless frame and is totally adjustable vertically. The transformers work. Then again, it should. The price tag is around $800

Years ago, we bought knock offs and sold them for $400. These lights did not stay sold as the cables would fray or the transformers would not work. At that time, we did not have an electrical department so finding an installer was always a mind numbing experience.

I am not advocating spending too much money on anything, but be careful, especially in lighting or any other industry where quality is not defined. Buying super cheap usually will cost more in the long run
