Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Had some difficulty with new second one after year with first. Was my fault.
I put one of these in to replace a standard 2-lamp 150w bulb fixture over my back door a year ago or so. Have had NO problems with it!
I bought another to replace the other flood light fixture on the garage that lights against the formerly mentioned.
The garage was an angled eave, so I had to mount the light pretty much backwards.
Had the problem of the light going on and off when out of test.
This is because the "Dawn to Dusk" photocell (right next to the TEST position) was getting lit up with the light on and fooling it into thinking it was daylight.
I put a piece of tape over the photocell and it works fine now.
Will have to think up a hardy shroud to keep working light off the cell, but still have it be able to work using ambient sunlight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DB0341 The product works/lights very well but......
I have no complaints about the performance of this light, it does a great job of lighting up my once very dark back yard. My only complaint is that I ordered a BRONZE finish and when I opened the box the light was not bronze at all it was dark grey not even close to being bronze and when I checked the packaging it even said bronze. I guess they forgot to paint it or dip it or whatever it is they do to achieve a bronze finish. With that being said I would recommend this light but just cross your fingers you get the right color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ACAB Bright light that is easy on the electricity use.
Bought several of these for outside lighting on house with approx acre of land that I needed to have security lighting available. Casts a bright non glaring light and provides wide area of coverage. A bit pricey compared to standard outdoor lighting, however well worth the price and results. Met our needs well. Been up approx 1 month and endured several storms without issue. If they last as long as anticipated 5-6 years I will be more than pleased and price will be a lot less than replacement bulbs and standard lighting we replaced

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by McLite Nice, remarkably low power consumption exterior light
I've done a considerable bit of research in updating the lighting on an older home and 5 acres I recently acquired... Our new Lithonia 3 LED floodlight has been up 2 weeks... It works as advertised... Unit is dark grey-black, not bronze... Gasket on mounting plate vs required caulk would be helpful... Build quality seems very good (time will tell)... The lights actual color output is blueish, but not objectionable... LED flood light appears to "disperse" more uniformly across a wider area than halogen or tungsten flood lamps... Bottom line, with 30 watts power consumption vs 300 watts for similar light output with previous technology - If the hardware (fixture/electronics) lasts as long as the claimed life of the LED bulbs (not replaceable), this will be a good, cost effective investment... ...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lamc Excellent outdoor light
We have this installed to light up our yard. The amount of light is perfect. It is bright enough to use the swing set after dark, but not bother-the-neighbors bright. As other reviews note, the light is very white, but I actually find it way more pleasing than a conventional flood light.
The price is high, but the build quality, amount of light, and motion sensor activation are worth it. Another huge benefit is that the LEDs should last for a long time, which is great because it is mounted high on a wall.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer An expensive disappointment
Bought 2 for front and back. Electrician installed. Back would not work so electrician played around with it and so far it is working. Called the support twice and not sure their advise was helpful to the electrician. Doesn't light up the full yard. Front one worked well for 2 nights and then the cells did not work although the red sensor was working. Waiting for electrician to take down the front one and replace with my floods and return to the store for a refund. Not a wise purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alba Quality Floodlight
The product is well built and operates as advertised. Installation and set up of the device is straight forward, including the adjustments for sensitivity of motion and the timer for when the light turns off. I did have to turn the sensitivity down because it turned on too easily when it rained. The adjustments for the angel of the lights and the motion detector are very flexible and allows tweaking to the exact locations needed. And they lock in to place with three different knobs/nuts per light.
The amount of light produced is good for LED's; however, the light is very 'white' which I don't particularly like. Over time, I am going to search for LED replacement bulbs that have a warmer color closer to incandescent light color.
Over all, I am very satisfied with the product and would buy it again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LightPro Expensive but great product
Pro-I wanted bright and this light is bright. Lights up most of 2 acre back yard. Color is a little on the blue side but label correctly shows the color. Motion detection works good. Easy mounting with one exception, see Con.
Con-Expensive. In local store they carry same light in white but not bronze, why? Forced me to internet order and the order was not fast. It took more than a week to get. Mounting was easy EXCEPT mounting base is very wide. My house has verticle mounting blocks for outside lights made of 2X6 cedar. 2X6 cedar is 5.5 inches wide and light base is far wider than my mounting base. Mounting would work without modification but would leave large gaps on the back edges for water and insects to get into the base of light. I pop rivited some aluminum strips to each edge of the mounting plate to cover gap.
