The product was received on time and showed no exterior damage. But, when I went to install it, it was very difficult to get the top off to put in a bulb. After some tweaking of the main case, it went back on OK. Also had to use some larger mounting screws on one of them because the screw holes stripped out.

The lamp was somewhat easy to install, and provides ample lighting at night. It is also very easy to wire for DIY, as long as you turn off the electrical current to the lamp post. The one problem that I had was lining up the screw holes to the holes in the post, but eventually conquered this. I slightly installed two of the screws and then turned the lamp with a lot of pressure and was able to kind of force in the third screw. Then I tightened in all of the screws.
But in the process, I unfortunately stripped the heads of two of the screws, after they were tightly in. I did not want to leave them like that, so I would not have problems in the future, if and when I had to remove them. I purchased Gold (#8-32) screws from Home Depot and they fit just fine, with heads that did not strip easily.
One tip; do not use a powered screw driver, but screw the screws in with a manual screw driver. This will allow more control and avoidance of stripping the screws.
My post was black, so I purchased a spray can of Rust-Oleum, Hammered Brown. I did a light sanding of the post and then sprayed it. It matches perfectly.
I also purchased a "Hampton Bay Outdoor Lighting. Woodbridge Collection 1-Light Long Heritage Bronze Faux Tiffany Wall Sconce" for above my garage door.
Both lights really gave the front of the house a new look, with plenty of light at night.
