We wanted to replace our incandescent front light with an LED so we could leave it on all night for security. We chose this one after reading reviews. The textured glass is the perfect solution for its light source. During the day it looks just like lanterns we are accustomed to. But at night it sparkles like no other regular or curly bulb can. Nearby it looks like little fairies are sitting in there. As others stated, it makes lovely patterns on the porch and sidewalk. It's as bright as I hoped -- dark parking spot in front of the house is gone.
It's very nice quality with heavy glass. We had the common problem of screws being the wrong length for our installation. Too bad manufacturers don't include three different choices. The only issue we have with the one we got is that the lantern part is not square with the base. Quite noticeably, in fact. Really? They couldn't use a level when welding it? Sheesh. Since it was already installed, we twisted it clockwise enough to split the difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mggg Add more fixtures to the collection!
I purchased this product based on reviews here and must say that I am very pleased with the both the quality of the build and the power savings. I do not understand why Hampton Bay does not make more fixtures to add to the Basilica LED collection? I need flush and post mount. These fixtures put off a strong downward light without a bulb visible, that fades rapidly as you move further away from the fixture. This makes for a great effect at night that you would not get with normal conventional fixtures. I purchased two of the larger and one of the smaller fixtures and the light output is the same between the different sizes. HAMPTON BAY - PLEASE ADD MORE FIXTURES TO THE BASILICA LED COLLECTION.

We ordered three lights. They were pretty easy to install. They are attractive, especially when on at night. The LED lights are bright but throw an attractive, not garish, light through the bubble glass.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BAH1 Light quality might not be what you want
I bought two of these. The appearance of the lamp is very nice. The quality was very good. However, the lenses have a cut glass appearance that, as others have said, gives the light cast a psychedelic appearance. It is not very good if you need good vision in the area it is used. It is best for a small amount of general ambient light. Unfortunately, the placement of the LEDs focus the light straight down with some light scatter to the side. We kept one for use in an area that this did not matter and sent the other back. I doubt most people would like the light pattern it gives for most uses and the pattern is hard to describe.

Breeze to install and the light pattern looks neat. Very happy with the purchase.

Our first shipment included one light where only 2 of the 4 LED's were working on one of the outdoor lamps. We exchanged it through our local Home Depot and received another through shipping with no issues. The amount of light is adequate, but not as much as an incandescent light. Knowing that LED's utilize 95% of the power they consume and have less heat for output is a plus. They are rated to last about 9 years; I'll let you know in 9 years. If they do consume less power, then it is a plus, otherwise it was an expensive "experiment".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HobbyWoodworker007 The etched glass refracts the light in a pretty pattern.
The LEDs are built into the fixture, so when they die, you have to buy a new fixture. The description does not make this real clear. It is an attractive fixture that spreads the light in an interesting pattern. It is a really bright and white colored light that I desired, but may not be for everyone. Awkward to install with these threaded studs that have to be adjusted to just the right length. I am thinking that modern technology would have a better system than this, but it does work.
