Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jamin1g Very bright, decent quality
We installed 4 of these around the house and they are super bright, our place is lit up like a car dealership. Almost too bright! We replaced 300watt halogen fixtures and these are by far whiter and brighter. We have no close neighbors these work for us. One stopped working after about 4 years and the bulbs last is about 1-1.5 years and around $25 to replace. Certainly not the cheapest around but they perform. The lights are used every night on our property. They turn on slowly and take about 80 seconds to achieve max output. If you turn them off, and turn on right away it will take about 2 minutes to fire back up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jwaand great buy
I purchased this light after comparing it's purchase price and yearly operation cost to that of similar models. It was easy to install and after installing one light to see how well it worked I replaced are other lights with the same model.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sniggud No way these are worth the money!
Our agency purchased 2 of these units, the 1st in July of 2013, and 2nd in October of 2013. Both were installed in weather sheltered locations on the building. BOTH failed within a year of installation.
These units were controlled by photo cell for Dusk to Dawn operation. If you consider an average of 12 hours of operation per day X 365 days that would equal 4380 hours per year. The bulb life was rated at 12,000 hours. We reasonably should have expected at least two years of operation before needing to replace the bulbs.
Home Depot offers 90 Day return window and Lithonia a 1yr. manufacturer's warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott I would buy them again
The lights are great. They put off a LOT of light considering the wattage. I wanted to light up about a 1/3 of an acre and was looking for lights I could mount on my backyard pavilion to do it. I was first looking at halogen, but mounting two lights at 1500w a bulb I was going to have to run some monster wire to feed them over the distance I was going to have to run the wires. That's what led me to these lights. I mounted them quick and dirty to see if they would work and whoa! I just finished all of my conduit runs and the two lights are on and blazing, sipping a mere 200w compared to what I was thinking, and my backyard is lit nicely. Just be careful with the lock ring on the mount as they can break easily. The lights are heavy and it wasn't the most fun job mounting them up to their boxes, but it wouldn't deter me from doing it again. Good purchase.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OTMac Nice light, but housing needs some work
I've put 6 of these up for lighting a field. Easy to install and love the look of metal halide, but the weight of the housing makes prone to cracking the thin diecast housing at the adjustment fitting. I cracked 3 housings, 1 while installing.
Came to this page trying to find replacement parts. No parts on vendor site either. :(
Guess only other option is to buy a new one, put a broken one in a box, and return it to HD. Sorry HD! Get on your vendor to fix the design flaw. I build tools and molds for a living, this is an easy problem to solve for the vendor (...or, would be if vendor and their suppliers were on same continent and spoke same language - but that's a whole nother issue) .
