Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gdad Third time lucky
First unit from HD did not work. HD provided credit and reordered. Second one was unacceptable as it had been used( but worked ok). Finally the third one was shipped directly from the vendor at no cost, was unused and worked fine. (What happened to the old adage - It is easy to get it right the second time?)
If you read the instructions installation is easy.
Looks neat and provides good flood lighting over the area where I need it.
It is high priced. I hope it lasts

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FredM Good for 4 years
Like other reviews the lights worked great for a while. After 4 years the center light won't come on and the outside lights flash on and off at 1 second intervals. Since the warranty is 5 years I contacted Lithonia. Will update when I hear back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Paul I really like this 3 light LED set
So far, I really like this 3 light LED set. In fact, I’ve bought 2 of them for our house to replace the old can lights that use the R-38 style flood lights and I plan on buying 2 more. The old can lights didn’t have the range of coverage the 3 LEDs do and they wouldn't stay aimed. The 3 LEDs are much brighter than the old 2 R-38 floods. Here in Florida, we get some very strong windstorms. No matter how hard I cranked the locks down, the wind gusts would eventually move them and I’d have to get up on a ladder and re-aim them. And I’ve got 5 sets of exterior lights, some of which are nearly 25 feet off the ground.
The lights have a good, yet simple locking system and can be aimed in nearly any direction needed. That said, there are several improvements that could be made to them, which is why I’m only giving them a 4.
The first issue is that they only come as motion sensor or light sensor controlled. All I really wanted was a switched unit. But they don’t make them, so I went with the light sensor model, which will work for me, but I hate paying for some additional feature I didn’t want or need, if you know what I mean.
The unit is fairly heavy, so it gets pretty tiring if you are up high by yourself. It needs to have some sort of hanger (like ceiling fans do), something to hold it to the bracket, once you have that screwed in tight. I made one up myself, but it ought to have one. It was nearly impossible to get the wire nuts on until I came up with the hanger, just a simple wire with a hook on either end. I installed them on my eaves. It might be a little easier as a wall mount, but it still ought to have one, it could be a simple plastic double hook.
Lastly, I found it impossible to hang them by myself. For an eave mount, you can’t get the screws into the unit while holding it and trying to raise it to the bracket (but maybe you could for a wall mount.) There's about a half an inch of play when you put the unit against the bracket. So, you have to move it around to find the threaded holes for the screws. There out to be some kind of guiding mechanism (knobs?) that gets you to the correct position when you put it on the bracket. We ended up with one person holding the unit up, while the other maneuvered it to the correct position to screw the mounting screws in.
But, overall, I'd still recommend them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pencilmarks Phenomenal light
These lights are well worth the money. Super bright and beautifully white light. Very sturdy metal construction. Replaced one corner light last year with one of these, as one was high up and didn't want to worry about replacing bulb often. Liked so much replaced other three corners this year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobNB Excellent Outdoor Security Light
I installed 2 of these one year ago for security lighting in my back yard. These provide a soft good bright light for my entire 1 acre backyard. I suspect the LED lighting has saved a lot of electric expense. The dusk-to-dawn detector works pretty good, however watch the installation, if there is any reflection of the LED light from the roof overhang back to the sensor, the light will flash continuously. I had to adjust the proximity of the install to resolve this problem. While the sensor is sensitive to it's on light reflection, it is not to normal day light, so often stays on thru dusk/dawn/storms. Overall i rate these as excellent and durable, if they were not so expensive, i'd buy a couple for other areas as well. I will not be looking for any other product, this one is Excellent.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wr Questionable Reliability
Have 6 of these lights in use. 3 per house. One is defective after a year's use. Center Pendent will not operate at all. Outer pendents have gone into flash bulb mode, continually flashing at 1 sec intervals after dark. Photocell still operates ok. Higher costs does not guarantee a better light. Repair costs are probably more than a new one.
