Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by richard Good Lighting For the Price
I will begin replacing my high pressure 70 watt sodium lights with these, as the sodium lights fail. I find that the light quality is much better than the yellow sodium lights and since I have 8 security cameras, the true color is displayed and recorded. The 65 watt fluorescent is about the same light as the 70 watt sodium, but better quality.
I must say that the globe and reflector is kind of flimsy, so don't mount it where branches can hit it. Also, use flat washers when mounting the aluminum housing to your structure for a better anchoring.
The price is very reasonable at about half the cost of the sodium, so I bought three to start

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by stuckina8track Great product, defective part
Received this as a gift, installed unit and it failed after one month, not wanting to go through the hassle of getting another one, I dis-assembled my unit, did some research and found the high voltage chip to be defective, replaced chip and it has been working great. lights up large area, unit is even better when attached to optional extension arm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tanguito01 Great light fixture for the money!!!
Easy to assemble, very reliable, I have installed 6 of these fixtures for my own house and investment properties and I haven't had a single issue. Just make sure you installation is properly done and you shouldn't have any issues I have own these lights for over 2 1/2 years and I haven't change any bulbs yet. Great product for the money!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by markk Bright , easy install , works great
Only gave it a good rating since I have not used it but a day so no info on if it will last long .
The lens has a very thin aluminum base . You will need 4 1/2" washers to put on each side before you screw it down or the screws will tear up the aluminum . If you do not then I bet the first big wind blows it off.
The light is very bright and covers a real good area . Comes on quickly and stays on all night . Looks good on the side of the house . I am going to buy another for the front .
Quite happy with this light so far . I would recommend it but as I said I have not used it long but for the price I think it is worth a try .

This item is JUNK...do not buy! Mine just went out after a couple of years. Went to HD to replace $12.00 bulb...still inop. Roundtrip BACK to HD to return bulb. According to other reviewers, the ballast is junk and cannot be replaced. Have found an LED replacement. Will never buy Lithonia brand again.

Very pleased with quality and functionality. Replacement lamp is very hard to find. Previous lamps had mogul base but new lamp has regular screw base.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by robsc Read reviews before purchasing
Purchased and installed. Was very happy until a few days later I looked out later in the night and the bulb was real dim. Next night everything was nice and bright to start with and then goes dim after a while. Purchased a new bulb and same. Contacted Lithonia and they said it was the ballast but it is not a replaceable part. Can't get a refund as I don't have the receipt since it looked like was working and trashed it. Should have read the reviews first as this is a common issue with this light. Please read the reviews before purchasing. Out the money and still have to climb on a tall ladder to remove. When it works, it is a nice bright light (for the short time it works)
