Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Joe long term review: It isn't great folks
So we bought two of these about 4 years ago to improve the curb appeal of our home. They look really nice. That's about the only good thing I have to say. The package for one was missing some of the decorative nuts that attach the plate to the wall base. It did manage to get them installed and that was about then end of my analysis of it.
The angle of our home caused one of the lamps to discolor about twice as fast as the other. Within a year or so the finish on that one had faded badly.
Then the bulbs eventually burnt out. Whoever designed this thing really didn't make it very easy to replace a bulb. But that isn't the real problem. From being exposed to fairly standard elements, one of the lamps completely rotted away inside to almost nothing. Trying to change a bulb resulted in the stud that holds the globe part on just dissolving into a sea of rusty gunk.
So now I have one lamp that is ok-ish, and one that is rotted to nothing. In order to not look like the (I'm not allowed to use bad words in the review) home on the block I now need a new light and have to decided if I want to buy this sub-par product again to match the other one that still works or to buy two more. Though I bet the quality of most of of the other external lights is also poor.

Looks nice, but bad quality and quality control. One of them should not have passed the quality control, if there is one. I expected better product for the price.
