Rated 5 out of 5Â by MarkC Excellent, Modern Outdoor Lighting
After looking at several independent lighting stores, we were finding the prices were high for sleek, modern lighting but were about ready to order one. As a last-ditch effort, we opted to see if Home Depot carried anything that would meet our needs, both aesthetically and functionally. We hadn't considered Home Depot earlier because we thought their selection was limited to traditional and Arts and Crafts styles.
To our surprise, Home Depot had this beautiful, modern light, which was definitely in the same genre as the specialty lights we saw, with the same quality, but at a fraction of the price. The scale of this light versus the others is about 10% smaller, but certainly not a deal-breaker for us.
The lighting is fantastic. What is great about using this light as a front porch light is the light sprays upward and downward. So if your light fixture is vertically mounted between 5.5' and 6.5' in height, your guests (and you) won't be blasted directly in the face with light, yet still have plenty of light to see the area around them/you.
Our neighbors have commented at how attractive the fixture is - both the style of the fixture and the light it gives to the front of our house. We are very pleased and would definitely buy this light fixture again.

Great minimalist modern exterior fixture that gives off ample uplighting and downlighting. I spec this fixture on projects with tight budgets. Would use for my definitely use on my own home. Comparable if not better than similar products i've seen for around $180. Brushed stainless finish is durable and beautiful.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by LightingGuy Not UL Listed
Purchased this item because it was specifically called out in the online product description as UL listed. UL listed / approved is often required in addition to other specifications to pass a lighting inspection from your local building inspector. This light is only ETL approved and is only noted as "conforming to UL" on the ETL sticker which our inspector said he wouldn't accept in lieu of UL approved. I even looked up Elgo in the online UL database just in case but no luck.
The light is modern looking and although not as efficient as an LED or fluorescent, you can easily change the bulb.

These are great looking lights, and as they use standard GU10 MR16 bulbs, it's easy to retrofit the supplied 50W incandescent bulbs with LEDs for a very energy-efficient fixture. They seem to be reasonably well constructed, and the top and bottom lenses attach using multiple-rubber-ring seals which look like they'd do a pretty good job of keeping out the elements.
At least one other review noted that the bulbs might be crooked. If you're obsessive enough to be bothered by this, it's a pretty simple matter to bend the innards (it's just a simple metal bracket with attached bulb sockets) so that the bulbs are straight.
The only downside for me was that the base just barely covers an octagonal fixture box. This isn't necessarily a problem, but if the rough openings in your siding aren't very tight to the box (like some of mine), you'll end up with a gap. Depending on your siding, this may or may not be a difficult issue to correct.
