Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BH12 Excellent lights, might be too bright
Nice lights, very well made. Solid metal housing and quality adjustment screw. Lights are very bright for landscape lights at 300 lumens. Light pattern is smooth and does not look unsightly against the house with a nice wide beam. These lights are borderline too bright, and I am thinking of downgrading to the the 20w equivalent LED.
I used the quick connectors for testing and placement to get the lights up and running in 20 minutes, but once everything is exactly how I want it I will be going back and removing those connectors and splicing into the low voltage cable so they stay connected through the winter.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Very Reliable Spot Light
Easy to assemble. Draws only 11 watts but illuminates like a 50 watt spotlight. I have a string of 14 flood lights in my backyard and never had to replace a unit unless the gardener broke it at the base. Hard to do because the base is thick, but the weak point appears to be at the top of the stake where the threads begin. Another negative issue is that there is no apparent way to replace the LED bulb. Once it burns out, it's trash. This has happened frequently on the pathway lights, which makes me very unhappy.

I recently upgraded to a 32-foot brushed aluminum flagpole to replace a gnarly old 20-foot steel pole. At the same time, I decided to install some lights for nighttime display, and after doing some research I settled on these LED floodlights.
I wanted something a little more quality/permanent than the cheezy plastic ground spikes, and the bases screwed right onto half-inch threaded PVC pipes, which are set in concrete bases. I also purchased a Malibu power supply with "electric eye" that turns the lights on at dusk, off at dawn.
I'm quite pleased with the results. But be aware - these are FLOOD lights; I wish they were more of a "spot" beam to focus the light in a smaller space. But these will do. The light color is nice - not that stark bluish-white you think of with LED illumination.
I anticipate these lights will last a long, long time... and that the savings realized in lower energy consumption will reward me for the higher purchase price of LED illumination over incandescent.
I've attached a photo of my new flagpole, and you can see the two lights about 6 feet out from the base.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JTee Perfect with frosted film on glass
When I first plugged this in I liked how bright it was but I didn't like how harsh it was. it looked like a U shaped beam on the wall with a sharp edge cutoff. Sort of like a projector based HID headlight.
Adding film on it completely softened the lights I it doesn't look like a flashlight. it should of come like this!

Product does exactly what advertised. Very bright illumination, warm soft brightness, solid feeling, like 50 Watts using just 11 Watts. Bought about 12 of them for my large yard, looks great overall, problem is after a few months, one burned out...Then another...At that point I looked at each and everyone one and noticed that the "diodes" on the majority of them were burning out. Each one has 4 diodes, and about 2 on each one are out. I've been able to take back a few to get them exchanged, but lets face it, warranty has run out on all of them about now. So now what?
Also be careful with the clips that allow it to connect to your power line. Because I had so many I had to go around moving them around and the clips with fall apart if you unclip them more than 5 times.

I have six of these in the front of my house including my light for my flag. I have them on a 300wt box and really get a lot of compliments.

I have been a user of Malibu products for a long time.
Malibu’s timers & transformers and flooding lights are easy to install and work well.
My experience with Malibu services has been excellent. I recently found one of my Malibu’s timer & transformer and one of the LED flooding lights not working in my front yard. I contacted Malibu Customer Service. After only a few necessary questions and red tapes on their side, Malibu decided to send me replacement transformer & timer and floodlight. All now is working fine. The Customer Service contact person was very helpful and supportive. I am very happy with Malibu products and services and recommend them.

I paid someone to install this light along with the others I bought, so can't comment directly on ease of installment, but as far as I know, there were no problems. It's an attractive, reliable piece of outdoor lighting so far. The one I replaced was not as well constructed and the glass cover kept coming off. I've enjoyed the lighting which can be adjusted to aim high or low in a garden.
