Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by niko6266 Broke in under a year
I had installed this around August of last year. I noticed this week that the fixture broke. I can't imagine that someone leaned on this and broke it so it must be the design of the thin metal at the bottom and wind blowing on it.
I remember also having issues with the top of the fixture as the screws were not long enough to properly seat after I had installed the light bulbs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OldGuy Bad design flaw -- light's base snaps off after a few years.
This light is easy to install with minimal ability... but unfortunately this is the 3rd time I have installed this light. I have had to reinstall it because of a flaw in the design. After a few years of normal wind -- and we do not live in a high wind area -- the light's base will snap off. See photos.
I have not contacted Hampton Bay (or is it actually just Home Depot since the Hampton Bay website sends you to Home Deport) yet about the design -- I will as soon as I finish this.
You may ask why did I replace it 3 times with the same light? Because it goes with the other outside lights we have and costs less to replace this light every few years than replace all the lights -- and heaven forbid that the lights would not match... the wife would be very upset.

Put these at the entrance at the gate. Look so much better than the ones that were there! Not the top of the line ones but not the bottom of the barrel ones either. They are just right for our needs and look nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susie I would buy again
Nice light for the money. I would buy again. There was a nice selection of lights at the Home Depot but this one stood out.

Your basic post light. Cheaply made, looks decent, does the job. The base snapped off a few days ago at the four supports so now I have to replace it. It's so obvious this is planned obsolescence - if it didn't fail they wouldn't sell too many. Will buy a different light this time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lee Replaced Older Light
This was a good replacement for old light, but older light had a defused glass window, this has clear glass and even with three 25w bulbs is to bright. A single bulb with frosted glass would of been better, otherwise a good purchase and easy installation.
