If you need an industrial appearing, solidly built light for a very good price I think these are a nice option. I'm sure there are better ones out there but expect to pay a lot more.
Couple install tips: #1 guard the mounting screws with your life. They are a very common #10-24 thread pattern but have a small head for their size. If you lose or strip one most retailers and hardware stores don't carry an exact match. #2 you will need a long Phillips head to get the 2 lower screws in place due to the shape of the housing. #3 the glass globe is very solid but isn't a precision thread. Go slow when screwing it in or you will cross thread and chip it.

First off this is an industrial light styled light. It is not a true vapor barrier light but intended to look like one. Therefore it does not mount like a normal light because it is a pretty good knock off of the original. That being said this light is intended for those who like the industrial/steampunk kind of styling it provides. The installation is quite simple. Mount the box, wire the light, mount the light on the box. I used my light as a porch light outside my workshop. I love it for the industrial style and incredible price. All to common you see an item that matches a style you're after and you die of sticker shock. Not this light.
Installation was easy. The light is mostly metal and takes paint well. I painted mine with Rustoleum hammered metal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DAWg134 Great Exterior Lighting Option for the Home
Despite the industrial look, this is a reasonably well-made weatherproof light that can be adapted for home use to provide an attractive, effective lighting solution.
A can of spray paint will do wonders to improve the appearance of the fixture - just be sure to mask both the interior threads (where the glass cover screws into the fixture) as well as the locking slots on the protective cage and corresponding locking lugs on the fixture.
I also added a rubber gasket between the back of the box and the stucco wall to ensure that the fixture would be truly weathertight. In my opinion, such a gasket should be provided with the light. Another nice-to-have feature would be pre-drilled holes that would allow the light to be mounted directly to a junction box.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nailhead8 Good quality fixture
Easy to install.
Packaging was sturdy and protective of contents. There are two parts to this fixture; the base plate and the light fixture assembly which includes a metal cage and a glass enclosure.
The base plate has two screw holes to attach in a vertical position. However, the base mount screw holes are clocked at approx. 8 and 1 o'clock positions. The task of mounting the base plate so the bulb axis is vertical would be easier to accomplish if the holes were instead at 9 and 3. Maybe that mounting arrangement coincides with a typical commercial junction box configuration. If I had thought of it earlier, I could have used two of the four fixture mounting screw positions to level the base plate. This was attached to the side wall of a private residence.
I expected mounting screws (2) and wire nuts (2) to be included which were not.
The light fixture is sturdy and the caged design protects the bulb from accidental bumps by ladders and such. Access to the bulb is quite easy. Two screws provide a mechanical stop to the twist off/twist on cage and threaded glass shield. Seems like a sizeable CFL or LED bulb has more than enough room to fit within the fixture.
