Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave1234 Nice way to begin enjoying the benefits of solar
The light gives sufficient light for my 10 X 12 shed. Now I don't need a extension cord which had to be rolled up when I cut the grass. I like that it has a compass and angle marks on the solar part which makes it easy to adjust the solar panel. I also like the fact that the light portion can be easily detached from the solar panel. I plan on bringing the light portion into the house at night when the electricity fails due to storms and then bring it back to the shed for solar charging during the day. I did have to put an extra piece of wood between the shed and the solar attachment so get it away from the roof.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FRUSTRATED 24 LED'S ARE BETTER THAN 5 LED'S
I originally purchased a Sunforce Solar Shed Light with 5 LED's (450 lumens) and discovered it wasn't bright enough. I returned it and purchased this device with 24 LED's. More expensive BUT much brighter even though there is no lumen output in the specifications (let's "assume" 2160 lumens).
I like the red indicator charging light so that I know that it is being charged. I also like the amber "night light" as well making it easier to find the on-off pull cord in the dark. However, I think the on-off slide switch is somewhat redundant.
Trying to get the screws to line up on the deeply recessed anchor holes in the base was the biggest problem. Get a long, magnetic cross-slot screwdriver. You'll be glad you did.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LJKaty Easy to Install but Don't Follow the Instructions - Use Common Sense
This light was easy to install but the instructions were unclear. However, they send you a "boat load" of different types of screws and bolts for all kinds of situations. I had more than enough types of screws to mount the light. Also, don't mount your light first until you charge it - use the panel and put it outside for a while to charge. Don't mount your light until you test the location of the light in your shed. It does not throw a lot of light but it's good for quick work. Placing it in the wrong spot will disappoint you. We tested out light in 5 different positions before we decided where to mount the light. Once you decide where to mount the light, that will dictate to where you'll mount the solar panel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dean Easy install and plenty of light
Got this light for my new 10'x14' shed. Install was easy, just 5 screws and 1 hole in total. The line between the solar panel unit and the light is 10', so you have plenty of options on where to put the light.
The light itself easily lights my shed at night. The color is a bit cold, but it is a shed, right?
Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because it is still new, so its longevity is still up in the air. I rarely give full marks unless something is far and away better than I expected.
This seems to be a great product so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hdtallahassee32309 This product works great even without direct sunlight
Using this solar light on a 10' x 16' storage shed, gives adequate light, no problem with installation, however, I would have preferred a longer cord or an extension to actually place the light where I wanted it. I wound up placing the shed light center on the door frame rather than the work area. This was due to the placement of the solar panel, there is a Magnolia tree that blocks the suns rays on the rest of the sheds roof.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nintendodaniam Easy to install if you DON'T READ the instructions
The instructions tell you the wrong bit size for the drill, if you go by the instructions you'll never get it installed.
What do expect from China!
Otherwise it seems to work fine. The price is about twice as high as I would want to pay. The last thing is that if they carried them in there stores I would get a 10% military discount which I was not able to get with there online ordering.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProGREEN Great for the price and easy to install
I bought this to attach to my shed, so my son could see inside when he has to put his bike away. The install was very easy and the light is plenty bright enough for my use (the shed is 12 x 14). So far i have not had any issues and the light is holding up nicely. The material is plastic, so be carefull not to overtighten the screws when mounting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JimBob Simple to Install and Works Great
I installed this light in a 10' x 16' machinery shed in my yard. I put the solar panel on the back corner facing south, and had plenty of cord to run power to the light mounted just inside the door. The LED"s provide good illumination, certainly enough to find everything at night and about enough to do some simple tasks. I might buy another one for my garden shed.
