Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyBee95 By far the most natural looking lights! Don't discontinue!
Love these lights! I have tried countless solar lights. These lights, although a bit simple looking, look totally natural and real at night. They have a warm color, and if they get enough sun, light a path very well. Mine are spaced three feet apart. People think they are wired in. I wish they offered more styles like these that put off a natural looking light. They are worth every penny!!! I would buy three more boxes but the price is a bit steep. Keep them away from porch lighting so they turn on or use dimmer bulbs ( I use 25 watt in my coach lights), and place them somewhere where they get a lot of sun. I think you will be very pleased!!!

They were easy to assemble and look great along my brick path. I needed to relocate the fixtures because of too much shade. direct sun light works best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeachWife Great Look, Low Light, Some Problems Common to all Solar Lights
I bought these four lights at Home Depot for much less than at Amazon. I read tons of reviews on different models and many people reported that some of the solar lights don't work or that they won't hold a charge for more than a couple of hours. Consequently, I was not surprised when one of my lights held a charge for only 2-3 hours. Rather than return all four lights or ask to see a manager and get one new light from another box, I spent $4.00 on a new battery for the defective light. (I couldn't buy the batteries at a small hardware store or Radio Shack but I found them in the landscape lighting section of Home Depot.) With the new battery, the defective light worked perfectly -- with only a partial day’s sunlight to charge, it stayed on 12 hours and nothing went to a landfill.
Overall, the look of the lights is great. I love the bronze color (a deep chocolate brown) which tends to blend with my plants and paint. The light is 6 lumens and not bright enough to light a path well. The higher you place the light, the more area you can cover but the light will remain weak. Holding the lamp up at knee height (18”), the light extends 4-1/4’ in one direction or a total width of 8-1/2’.
I have steps leading up an incline to my front door. On one side of the steps are three planter boxes built into the incline so that they follow the incline of the steps. The steps are too dark to see at night. I placed the lamps deep in the planter boxes so they wouldn’t show too much but would illuminate the steps.
With the present placement, the light shines about 3-1/2 feet in one direction over the adjacent steps and it's very low, shadowy light...barely enough to see the steps. The bronze pattern on the lamps is reflected onto the ground creating shadows. The light is brightest directly beneath the lamp. I would have preferred a little stronger light but my husband prefers the low light. Just be aware that if you need brighter, clear lighting, you should get a lamp with more lumens.
The only nit-pick I have is that the solar element is covered with tight-fitting plastic wrap that is difficult to remove. You need a little patience. The best way to remove it is to use your fingernail to lift of the edges of half the circle and then start peeling. If you do this, most of the plastic wrap will come off in large pieces. If you don't get half the wrap edges lifted to start, you'll end up ripping off small shreds and it will take a lot longer.
I would recommend these lights to anyone. The 4 star rating is for the low light and because one of the lights did not work properly.

Love my outdoor garden lights. They are really bright at night and even if the day has been cloudythey still light extremely bright and stay lit all night.
In fact, I am going to purchase another set of these for my second garden area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyBee95 Natural looking solar lights!!
Tried 6 different solar lights from various companies and these are by far the best! They have a warm yellow light that blends well with the porch lights on my house. They look very natural!! I really love them and I am so happy I tried them. I wish more styles would come out with this type of light color. The only other thing is the costs. It was high compared to other lights but it was worth it. I would highly recommend these solar lights.

Easy to place. Wish the light was brighter, but over all excellent value

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Saynotomalibu Do NOT buy
Worst product I've ever purchased. So cheaply made. Two of the lights' on/off switches became unglued to the base and would no longer work, even after reattaching. A third light stopped working within one day, despite lots of sun.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Snowbird13 Make sure they have more than one in stock
I purchased these lights not wanting to purchase the cheap disposable solar lights. I love the look of these lights. We have hard wired landscaping lights in the front of our home. We purchased these for the side of our garage and wanted a warm white to blend which they do perfectly! After opening and installing which was easy, one of the 4 lights was defective right out of the box, light would start to come on and then fade out repeatedly. I returned to Home Depot and exchanged for another light. The next night, another light went out. I again went to Home Depot and exchanged for yet another replacement. We tried different batteries, all are within feet of each other and get equal amounts of sun. Keeping my receipt and holding my breath, too expensive not to.
