Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HomeDepro Stay Away from Malibu lights
We bought this kit b/c it was reasonably priced, the lights are bright and sleek, and installation was pretty simple. The lights worked wonderfully for about a month, then two lights went out. We gave it more time, and eventually all of the lights went out. Luckily they went out before the 3 month return period. The plastic connectors for the lights are flimsy and seem to be a poor design. It was nearly impossible to disconnect them without damage in order to return them. Looks are deceiving with this one.

I was so disappointed that I took time to buy and install this without reading the reviews first like I normally do!~ I wanted low voltage four units and decided this was it.
It took a fair amount of time to undo the screws and get the connections in place and make sure all the contacts were properly seated then; absolutely no lighting, rechecked everything, tried all settings and my plug, still nothing.
Then I went inside and read the prior reviews and took the kit back to the Depot. They refunded my money no problem but, never said "we are sorry".
They need to drop this line of junk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Delwirtz Worst purchase ever
Nearly impossible to connect the lights to the power cord. Just the worst designed conectors I have ever seen. Already ruined three of the connectors, rendering the lights useless. I bought a total of eight lights, was only able to connect two, connectors broke on three of them.
Will never, ever buy from this company again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyshan Nice addition to backyard oasis
Very easy to set up and install. I have another unit and with both units set up around the pool, my backyard looks like a resort at night. The internal auto turn on at dusk is really handy too.

I bought a set of these lights approximately 15 yrs ago. They served me well all these years. I decided it was time to replace as I updated some landscaping. You can't beat the price or ease of installation. I read some reviews from people that complained about lights not working out of the box or frequently replacing bulbs. Neither has been the case for me with the first set or the second. The problem is not being installed properly and not properly changing bulbs. When fastening spotlights to wire, care must be taken to assure the puncture pins are centered on the wire for a good electrical contact. When changing the halogen bulbs you must avoid contact with your skin. Handle bulbs with rubber gloves or a paper towel as the oil from your skin will cause bulbs to wear out prematurely. I recently removed old set and installed 2 new sets, plus adding 2 extra lights(the maximum that can be added to this set) on each set in less than two hours.Great product for the money. Lighting much better than any solar lights. Another tip I would offer is to get a can of liquid electrical tape to waterproof connections,also found at Home Depot

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CanadaGoose Lousy decision!
I think we should have looked this one up first! This unit won't work, period. Right out of the box. We checked the plug. We checked all the connections and it worked the first night, going on and off when appropriate. Since then, however, we have not been able to get the unit to turn the lights on and we've checked and rechecked all the connections. Should read the reviews first! Very disappointing! IWsh the HD sales guy knew more about it because we asked him and he wasn't much help on this product!

I installed these lights and about a month and a half later one light stopped working. I took the cover off to inspect the bulb to discover water inside the light. A couple days later a second light stopped working. I'm not even going to get replacement parts, I'm just going to throw the entire system into the garbage and purchase a different brand. All the other reviews about lights going out are spot on. Don't buy it. Home depot should stop selling this product as it is not up to their quality standards.
