My wife had asked me for a backyard light for a longest time and I always dillied dollied because I wanted her to get the light she liked. Finally last week I went to Home Depot with the friend who was going to install it for us and we chose this lamp. My friend John had to drill through the building's wall to fit the 12 gauge wire that we chose plus the metal tube to protect the wire. Everything went perfectly: Elizabeth and my sister in law Mary like the light and that alone is swell with me.
We feared that the 150Watts bulb was to be too strong but it is just right for a yard of our size.
The metal halide bulb with this lamp gives a bright lunar light that is pleasant to the eye. A replacement bulbs by Lithonia goes for about $45.00 at the Home Depot but it should taker a few years before we will need one. This lamp is not a masterpiece to look at but it is, in our eyes, pleasant enough.

This is a budget grade fixture and should not be used for large commercial jobs. The housing is light gauge cast aluminum. I have installed 15 or more in the past year on modular offices. So far They perform as well as a higher end fixture with an optional button eye photocell installed. My only complaint is that the lens cover has nothing except the steel safety cable to hold it in place during installation, in other words the hinge pins have no stop limits and if you are installing the fixture you typically remove the lens, install the housing, wire the photocell and ballast and then before reinstalling the ballast cover and lamp you try to hold the lens that is trying to fall off the hinges because it has no stops while attempting to reattach the safety cable. Do enough of them, and a lens will hit the ground. Then you will either buy another $129 fixture or do a never ending web search to find a replacement lens that is sitting on an assembly line in China. Best to figure in an additional fixture into the job to steal replacement parts from. If you want a cheap fixture that will last a year and get you through your warranty period, this is it. If you have a small metal shop building this will do the job. If the ballast fails, for the cost of a ballast core kit and lamp, just buy another fixture and chunk the defective one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LightningBug00 The product was exactly what we were looking for.
This exterior lighting is so great that we have ordered so many in the last 3 months. We use these on commercial jobs because they last and are real efficient. Easy to install
