Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laszlo Easy setup a big plus. Concerns: product life, color choice
My new model 5910 Zenith LED Motion Sensor Light replaced my old model 5597 Zenith Halogen Motion Sensor Light because its motion sensing had failed last month and it left the lights always "on" (installed 4/1/2009). Having installed the old Halogen model myself, I found that the new LED model 5910 installation was just as simple. I especially liked the "plastic hanger", which holds up the fixture for a "third hand" convenience when attaching the wires.
I do have a concern about the robustness of the motion sensor control circuitry. My old one one lasted 4+ years, which is pretty good (about the same as home computers), but I would hope for somewhere closer to 10 years. Perhaps built in surge protection could help motion sensor circuitry last longer.
My old model 5597 Zenith was good for its dark brass color on my dark color house. While the new model 5910 Zenith white color choice might be best for others with light-colored or white house, a darker color alternative would blend better on my house. (Security light fixtures should stand out to passerby's by their lights, not by their contrast with the house.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Failed after 3 weeks
I was really excited to find an LED outdoor floodlight, but was very disappointed with this purchase of the Heath Zenith Model LS 3261-SP4 last Dec 2011. It failed within 3 weeks of installing it, and is completely dead. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, so our climate is mild, not much rain, so can't attribute any failure due to the elements. I contacted the manufacturer for warranty service, and they haven't responded, so am having to call them on the phone to follow up, since they don't return my emails. I cannot recommend this unit, and can only assume that they have poor quality control with their manufacturing arm in China, where it is made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WPWP GREAT PRODUCT
I have now purchased six of these lights, they work flawlessly- have been able to measure the power savings. Between the power savings, and long life LED lights this is an absolute winner. The motion sensors work well. I have a large acreage so have both these LED lights and standard halogen units. I will only buy this type of unit for any future needs- only issue is that so far I can only seem to find the product in white - would like a bronze color choice as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kamlooopsian Great Light!
Our ranch house is completely "off grid" meaning that we generate our own power with solar modules and a diesel generator, storing power in an extensive bank of batteries. We have installed LED lighting throughout the entire home and wanted to do the same outdoors. We were concerned that LED lights might not throw enough light but we wanted a security style, motion sensor floodlight for our driveway. We found this fixture and were pleased to see that it included the LED bulbs and was not priced over the moon (like some other LED lights we have looked at). After installing the light fixture (it went in easily) and experiencing several weeks of operation, we can wholeheartedly recommend this unit! It throws a ton of light, illuminating our entire driveway, bathing the area in very bright, white light. The motion sensor system is easy to configure and allows manual use of the light at anytime. We get all this in a neat looking package that consumes less than 14W! A great product and an even greater value!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeZ Simple, bright LED motion activated light
I put this up in place of an older zenith motion activated light over our garage. Went up quickly, no issues and adjusts better than the old unit. Has excellent detection window width and could easily set the distance down our driveway that would trigger the motion sensor. The light is very bright. Wish we'd had this version years ago!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Not what they claim.
I searched long and hard for a non-metallic fixture for use by the beach. These claim to be, but are not. The light housings are cheap pot-metal, sprayed white. They won't last a year before the finish is blistering and failing. Now I have to hassle with returning 8 of them to the local store. Waste of time and money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by babyRoo Works great for nine months, then the motion control goes out.
My light worked great for nine months then the motion control went out and I tried calling the manufacture with no response for three months. I tried taking it back but it was too late. The light is perfect, the motion controller stinks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulR2D2 Great Flood Light and the only one I use
I have lived in several places in the past few years, so I have had the opportunity to install this light twice, both work perfectly and provide solid illumination for the area, they are using are bright without blinding you if you need to walk towards them. Highly Recommend this and it's the only flood light I use.
