Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by retired BIG PROBLEM
The first one of these that I bought lasted for a couple of years until the problems with it turning itself off and on every few minutes was beyond annoying. I replaced the bulb and the photo control but neither seemed to stop the problem. So, I bought another fixture and installed it. Months later, it is causing all kinds of problems, too. The same thing is happening with the light cycling off and on every 5-10 minutes is going on with this one. I tried to replace the bulb but the new one will not screw into the fixture because of something wrong with the threads. I replaced the photo control and that stopped the repetitive cycling but it wouldn't ever go off with that one. So, I bought yet another photo control and installed it. It worked ONE day. Today, the light is on in the middle of the day and the fixture or some part of it is making a weird sound. It does supply a lot of light when it is working. I need to find something reliable and better and have spent way too much on this piece of junk and the one before this one.

I ignored the comments on this site and purchased the light. I should have listened. It goes on and off all night long. Now I have to get on the roof and replace the fixture. Save your time and money by purchasing a better unit.

Installed the light 30 feet up on 11/6/15. by 2/16 the light was flickering on and off. By 3/16 I had turned off power. Tried calling the numbers on the paper work for warranty and used email.. Neither worked. finally called home depot and they provided a different number. Called technical support--recommendation was to change the light bulb. I purchased a new Sylvania 100 w metal halide bulb at Lowes. Light now functions and new light is much brighter than original. suspect cheap bulb supplied with original fixture. costs to date--Original light--$85 and lift to get 30 feet up $80. so original install $165. New bulb $30. and lift $80. additional costs of $110. Total cost to date $275. If the new bulb doesn't last--we'll be going to LED--hopefully I'll be able to find an LED with the right base/wattage.

I've bought 3 of these lights, NONE of them have lasted longer than a year. If they were 1/3 the price I would expect to have to replace poor quality starters and ballast. But for almost $100 I expect better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by engr Produces Excelent illumination, for 2 months, then craps out!!
After about 2 months it starts to cycle on/off, every 10 minutes!!
To make matters worst, it goes through a capacitor style start-up
that causes electrical interference with the radio's in the house.
I replaced the first one under warrantee and the second one is
doing the same thing.
This is the Worst product that I have purchased from home depot

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gary DO NOT BUY THIS PEICE OF JUNK!!!!
I had a similar lamp years ago and it worked perfectly for MANY years without a failure. So I assumed when I bought this one that would serve me just as well. Wish I too would have read the reviews first. This piece of junk worked for about a month before it started going on and off every couple of minutes. I wasted $85.00 and after reading these reviews I'm not gonna waste another dime on this piece of junk. Home Depot got me on this one and I won't forget that, they should know by now that they're selling junk.
