Rated 3 out of 5Â by Texas After 4 years of use
A lot of high reviews, which I can only attribute to short ownership periods.
We bought two of these to go by our front gate.
Comments on installation requirements is not really relevant. Our gate is 1,000ft from the house, so I knew it was going to be a big job laying the cable.
You need a solid concrete base. I dug a 2 foot hole, then used the top section of a 10 gallon bucket to form a perfectly round form for the concrete base. After the concrete set up I removed the top of the bucket, leaving me a nice round area of the concrete that the lamps would bolt on to.
OK. So after almost 5 years, how are these holding up.
The black paint has faded to a dark gray. I wish these had been powder coated instead of painted.
One on lamp, one of the lamp arms has a tendency to tilt slightly during strong winds. With no way to tighten the arm enough to stop movement, this is annoying to have to straighten it by hand.
Given the price, I suppose the quality is acceptable. When the time comes to change these I will invest in a better quality product. These lamps are the first things guests see when they visit, so I'd like them to be elegant.
Living in the country, and with no street lighting, we use three 23w CFL light bulbs in each lamp. Each 23w CFL gives off the same amount of light as a standard 100w bulb. So we have 600w of lighting. This is more than enough to light that area at night.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hairsmygame This light was easy to install and looks very good.
I thought the storm that blew through about 6 hrs after finishing install would test my install abilities but it withstood the storm. Honestly how do you take down a bolted light other than a hurricane or a tornado. The 100 watt bulbs are too bright but 75 will work great! according to the online process, the light was not in store anywhere in a 100 mile radius. however going to my local home depot strolling the outdoor lights there it was! Love the light! Trying to figure out another application for one in my backyard.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sailorbob A good looking light at a reasonable price.
Bought four of these lights to place around our pool for lighting at night. The assembly instructions were clear and they came together easily. Installation on pool decking was also easy to do. Used SCFL equivalent to 60W bulb so as not to be so bright.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by PAHomeOwner Outdoor Light with no sensor
I did not occur to me that an outdoor lamp post would not have a dawn to dusk / night sensor on it. So I have to plug and unplug the lamp post for light. Really? Otherwise nice looking post. But have not had up long enough to review on the quality.
