Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by electricalcontractor Time will tell
Time will tell if this was a good buy. Remember- not always, but price usually indicates quality. This is a low end fixture with a "screw in" 42 watt lamp rather than the more common 4-pin lamp. Its basically a throw away fixture, so if it lasts over a year or two I would be satisfied. Haven't checked on the price of the lamp it uses- I'm afraid it will be close to the cost of the entire fixture, but maybe not.
Looks and works good as a newly installed light fixture. I used this fixture on a building I own. Would not purchase this for a Customer

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mrfixit Not a lasting product
I bought three fixtures of this model because it was the only one with a white casing and because it was inexpensive. I provides good lighting. Unfortunately, the light bulbs last between 1-2 year only which is between 3500-7000 hrs, short of the advertized 10,000. Also, I had to replace the light fixtures themselves about every second year. Some replacements took place with the very first bulb. When considering the premature replacement cost of the light bulbs and fixtures, this "inexpensive" fixture becomes extremely expensive. I am switching to a different model. I recommend you spend a little more and get a better light fixture.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by youask ...has worked very well for us for a long time.
I agree completely with "Best Outdoor Light Protection" comment (or similar title). We've had ours for years, just now replacing one because we drowned it out while pressure washing the house. Not smart on our part.
Lights a large area. Love the "white light" also.
Haven't had to replace it in 6 months like the other reviewer, that wouldn't make me happy either...but not so sure I wouldn't still buy it. Didn't notice if they tried a new bulb.
I see I've chosen the bronze by mistake. We have the same 42 watt fluorescent wall fixture in white.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve This product is a good value for the money
This product held up well, considering the cheap price. The first light that I put up finally needs to be replaced after only 15+ years. I might be able to get away with only replacing the ballast, but for the money I could replace the whole unit for what just a little more $$.

every time there is a power outage i have to replace the fixture which is not fun! but thank goodness they are not expensive. I had more trouble placing the order on line than it was worth. home depot 's web site is not good! also it takes way too long for delivery!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retiredoldguy Works well fo us
We use this fixture around school and they provide excellent light and last a long time. Inexpensive compared to replacing w/ led fixtures. New construction should go to led but we'ld had to rewire to make work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bergnible These are great lights, super bright!
These area lights really work well and are super bright. They seem brighter to me than the 175 watt mercury vapors they replaced. Very clean white light.
