Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matemike Good light
This light is not CRAZY bright, but it is sufficient as a floodlight around the homestead, and, in my opinion, it has a great color temperature. It is a nice bright white color that stands out, especially next to a yellow halogen light I also have in the back yard.
I mounted three of these lights around the perimeter of my shop, which is 75 ft away from the back of my house. Even with three of these lights installed 75 ft away I do not think they made a drastic difference as far as light added to my back porch. The previous reviews were making me wary and thinking my neighbors would be displeased when I put them up. I consulted my neighbor whose front door is 200 ft away from the closest of the three lights and he said he didn't even notice it.
Installation was very easy concerning the fixture. However, I had to run three different sections of conduit and 12-2-2-2 romex cable by myself for my particular install, so I spent a day and a half for install. I did install them all to the same switch so that I can turn them off at night if desired. But mostly I put them on the switch so that if/when the photocell goes out (as many reviews say) I can still turn them off during daylight hours.
The photocell is definitely sensitive. Two of the lights are mounted under a porch roof and they turn on with about two hours until sunset. The third light is mounted facing directly at the setting sun and it still turn on about an hour before sunset. (I'm in the greater Houston, TX area for twilight references).
Hope this helps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ProfRex Well made and bright as can be, but slow to light up
This fixture is probably designed to be left on so its photo cell switches it off/on with day/night, but I use it for a yard light that is switched on demand. If I turn it on, I'm already five steps into the yard before it goes on. Once on, it's a bright, even, daylight illumination, not the best color rendition but good enough for a patio (although you'll probably prefer a warmer color temperature and more color accurate CRI rating for looking at people and food).

We finally removed the outdated outdoor timer. It's been less a month since the purchase and installation of two outdoor flood lights. At night it provides "day light" appearance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jediret Super bright, poor photocell
One would easily light a football field. I needed two because of shape of back yard, had to aim them way down lest sure to annoy neighbors, with good reason.
One's photocell will not turn off, have to switch on and off each evening and morning. Other one turns off at sunrise, but any shadow during the day will start it blinking every few seconds for rest of the day until it goes on steady at dusk.
I've put up with them for a year, and now am going to replace.

I work at a hotel, and when one of my existing light bulbs blow out, I have been replacing it with this light fixture. At first the fixture is good looking and works amazingly. But they only last about a year. I have changed out every single one I have put in (3) they start to dim or don't work at all. I am currently trying to find another solution.

The installation took more effort than expected. The appearance is good, but for the price it is very basic.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner Great amount of light BUT , blinks on and off
Like lots of other reviewers say , sensitivity level of photocell is bad
It does work at night, and is off during day, but near sunup blinks badly,(maybe at dusk also but not sure)
Near sunup the light blinks on and off continuously every second ,
I just sent email about it to the company, most say their customers service is not good but I will give them a chance to see if and how they reply
If not resolved easily it will have to be returned to Home Depot,
I hate to do that because it does give off a good deal of light for low power consumption being it's LED, plus the time it takes to go back into attic and disconnect the wires and then go back to store with it

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer A little disappointed..
I purchased this light to shed some light on a shed that sits behind my garage.
Easy to install, and gives off plenty of light with low power consumption.
I put it up September 19, however it quit working December 24th. Lithonia promptly sent a replacement. If you decide on this light, be sure to register your product and keep your registration number someplace safe. You might need it......
