Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MountainMaxy Very Nice Light Set
These lights are a beautiful addition to the front of our home. The set is extremely easy to install and seems to be well constructed. I think the wiring system that is used is top-notch. When I examined the lights for the first time, I saw that each had only one tiny LED in the cap. I originally felt disappointed, thinking that the lights would be very dim. I am delighted to say that the lights really are VERY BRIGHT--- nearly equal to the light thrown-off by the old 4 watt light set that these replaced. Now I don't have to keep buying those expensive 4 watt bulbs anymore!!

It's a good product. I got two, because of the large discount.
I wish I would have know the connections were not going to be like the others I have installed in the past.These came with molded connectors.You have to start your power source at one end of the string of lights. Can't do it from the middle, like with the old ones. I had to run conduit and add a GFI, in a weather proof box. After all of that, yes, the lights look great.
I wish they(Home Depot) would have written that type of information in the product description and instructions.
Now I would buy again, I'm setup for them. I'd recommend them, but, I'd inform buyers about the connectors. If the connector configuration had been written in the instructions and description, I would NOT have purchased them. Too much work just to get power to them.

I used this set to replace my old low voltage incandescent 7 watt bulb setup. I couldn't be happier with the results. The lights are much brighter and use less electricity. They are much easier to install, no mashing of clips together. Just plug the lights together and twist the locks. No bulbs to replace!!! It seems that with the incandescent they always burned out in the middle of winter so I had to trudge through the snow with frozen fingers trying to pop in new bulbs. I was so impressed that I bought another set that I will install in the back yard. Buy them, you won't regret it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buckeye805 Excellent Set of Lights
I gave this low voltage led light set a try after getting tired of the old sets that so many of us have that have the wires that have to be pinched into a cable to connect them only for them to come loose. I was tired of having to replace those now costly 4 watt bulbs and having to replace a broken plastic lid or other piece that has cracked,etc.. After setting this Brinkmann set up, I cant believe how much better they are in so many ways...led light which can last well over 20 years on an average 10 hours use each night..these dont attract the bugs that my old 4W set use to do, the wiring for these is genious...they literally plug into each other and have a tightening cap so they will never come loose, and these also run strictly off a daylight sensor so you never have to worry about setting a timer or guessing when u want them to come on. These have a very nice clean, sleek look. I would highly recommend these to anyone considering going to solar...consider these facts first...this LED set will stay on from dusk to dawn with FULL light (nice white led) ALL NIGHT which you will never get out of solar..and these will also last virtually forever..good luck getting any solar set to fully work after 2 or 3 years. I came back and ordered 2 more additional sets to replace my old backyard Malibu lights.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ray777 Very good deal.
These are not high priced units; however they are much superior to the plastic ones we replaced. Excellent value. I was very pleased that we didn’t have to puncture the wire like the old ones. That made up for having to bury the ten feet of cords between light as we only wanted less than four feet between them. Light output is very good, not like solar which are only decorative, these actually light the path. Only negative is that the transformer has a audible buzz when the lights are on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PowerT Great for the price!
I bought these for my backyard. They provide enough light to illuminate the path. I use them to highlight my slate tiled backyard. They cannot be use with any other lighting system other than Brinkman. They can break if a basketball hits them. Each light has 2 wires coming out of it, a male and female connector. You daisy-chain them together and the last one in the chain gets an end cap. I also bought the Brinkman spot lights which work great to light the small trees that I have in the backyard. These lights cannot be split if you want to put them to the right and left, they go in only one direction (hope that makes sense). I am buying another set for the front.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goodlights Easy install and look good.
Installed very quick with good screw type connectors. Much brighter than I expected. Wish I had room to use another set as I would buy one. This is a very good deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mackster Super-Great 'substitute' for some out-of-the sun Solar Lamps
Absolutely astonishing value! Let me explain about the summary, and then tell you how to make them taller.
My main driveway is about 130 feet, set against a small hill for its entire length, rising to the house area at about a thirty degree angle. For about 8 months, the sun shines on a stunning set of eight all metal solar lights, with incandescent-looking LEDs (not blue-white) making the driveway look, from the intersection about 300 feet away, like an airport runway into the sky!
For the other four months, I'll use these; not quite as bright, and have a hint of common blue-white LED look, but produces the effect that I want.
Make 'em taller? Not sure about the user who drilled holes in the support rod, but he was on the right track.
Cut Schedule 40 white plastic 3/4-inch water pipe with a tubing cutter (or hacksaw) to whatever length you want. (I used two foot lengths.) Notch one end with a Dremel-type cutoff wheel at low speed: two cuts about an inch long, 1/2 inch apart, and one more to help snap out the piece. Push the light into this notched end.... takes a bit of wiggling. Did a narrow hole in the ground about four inches deep ( I used a so-called asparagus tool) and push the plastic water pipe into the hole. You don't need the black spikes that come with the set, but save them anyway. Voila! The top of my lamps is thirty inches above ground level.
Fortunately, mine are against that hillside, so I don't bother to bury the cable, no one will trip over it! I'll just disconnect the string from the power supply when the sun rises up over the trees about March, and leave them in place for next 'season'.
