I didn't want an electrical cord hanging from behind a painting we have so I purchased this picture light because it was battery operated and the spec's say it will last up to 25 hours on one set of batteries. The LED light is much brighter than I expected which is good. We don't use the picture light very often so the 25 hour life is acceptable but if you use the light often you'll be changing batteries (4 AA's) regularly. It's easy to operate and the "gold" color looks like "antique gold" rather than shiny gold. One drawback is that it is all plastic so it's a bit flimsy but once you set up the light the quality looks OK unless you actually touched it so that wasn't a big issue for me. The other drawback is that it is designed to attach to the wall only. I was able to add some shims, reversed the screw direction and attach it to the picture frame back and it works fine. I rated the value fairly high because it served my needs and eliminates the unsightly hanging cord.
