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.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYNY Liked the light but dissappointed
Bought the light last summer and found it easy to installed. Went up in less than one hour. The lighting was great and covered the area that I wanted from dusk to dawn. It went through the winter without any problems. Now, Spring time, the light will not go on. Emailed the company to see what can be done to fix the light or replace it. Have not heard from them as of yet and still in the dark. I don't think I would recommend this product if I can't get the light fixed.

This is a typical bright white led fixture. I chose it for the high output (1400+lumens). Lights up the front of my house plenty. The dusk to dawn photocell can be rotated 360 degrees so you can adjust it depending on where the sun sets. Super energy efficient.

Second one I bought. Can be angled to shine or not where you want it. I have them wired with no switch. They both come on at the same time mounted in different locations in my back yard, they turn off in the morning.
Been installed for two months.
If this light is in your budget I highly recommend it. I have nothing negative to say about this light at this time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Outstanding flood light
I've got to admit I was very skeptical about an LED light having enough brightness to illuminate my whole driveway. But I was sick of replacing ballasts, bulbs and photcells in HPS or MV fixtures I previously had, so I decided to give this a try knowing the longevity of LED bulbs.
First let me state there's no warm up time nor annoying transformer buzz from this fixture. It switched on instantly and silently and boy does it ever light up my driveway now! I happen to prefer the bright white color it has and like that it doesn't change color perception. The initial cost is pricey, but I expect to get payback in longevity and wattage usage.
To mount it over my old lamp's location I had to mount a weather proof electrical box with a solid cover plate. I cut a hole using a hole saw dead center in the cover plate to pass the wires thru to the lamp and riveted the lamp's mounting strap to the cover.
This is a very well built lamp and all the gaskets needed are supplied unless you do what I did, in which case the box I used as a lamp base had gaskets too. If you already have a box in your wall, you won't need to do what I did. My worktime added up to one hour, so it's a piece of cake!
