I've been looking for my chandelier 8 lights based on LED technology and was the first search. The pears are beautiful from the optics, have a pleasant light, good viewing angle and sufficient brightness. But: I wanted to LEDs are dimmable. These are not. You buzz the entire time you are on. First quietly, after a few minutes but then getting a bit loud, so it was very disturbing for us. The LEDs flicker just for about 4-5 minutes and turn-on time for a another day are the first 2 pears failed completely. (Monday lamps?) Anyway, no recommendation on my part. I've returned. That went smoothly. I have 5.5 W / dimmable opted for the (more expensive but much better) mumbi XQ-Lite LED Candle E14). Highly Recommended!
