We are very pleased with this product. I was looking for something that offered a variety of colors and this mailbox and post did just that. Although the post is made out of plastic, it is sturdy and feels very durable and solid. Installation was also very easy. We decided on the Kensington mailbox based on size and color and it looks great on the post. It is large enough for magazines and small boxes. Also, the magnetic catch is a nice plus. Since we've had this installed for about 3 weeks I can't really comment on it's appearance long term - should I see any issues down the road I will report those as well.

Purchased on line and installed last weekend. Looks great! However, the point of purchasing this model was to add an oversize mailbox. That's where the problem started. Large mailboxes do not lie flat on the post holder due to a small notch on holder. Had to shave bottom edges of mailbox to fit flat. Also, due hollow plastic composite, could not tighten bolts between mailbox and holder without deforming holder. Had to build up with wood for solid surface. Do not purchase universal mounting kits, it does not fit on this model. Be sure to find a mailbox that fits and installation is a snap.

If you know what you're doing, this will not be a problem to install. Ours is very secure and looks fantastic . We have received many compliments on it already. As some noted, it is plastic, but it's a thick, sturdy plastic material. We love it.

We bought the mailbox for the whole look and were disappointed to find that the mailbox itself did not come with the post and it is not offered at home depot or the distributor itself. Now we are forced to try and find a mailbox to match which has not been easy. I believe for the pirce we paid the box should have come with it or at least offer the box to match. For the time being it is up and love the flower planter adn the color.

I purchased this product as a gift. It looks great and has a great style to it. Though I was not expecting it to be plastic. The outer coating gives it the look of real stone and it truly looks as nice as it does in the picture. Just beware that is Plastic.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by anayel good buy
a bit expensive, light weight but strong enough, it needs a 4x4 installed inside the post cavity and cemented deep in the ground otherwise could be tilted with time , many ways to use its design, durable, the news paper groove is very practical were I live, the flower box could be used for large packages to leave out going mail or to insert a sign , the four stars is only for the price

The post with the flower box and newspaper slot may seem like a high-priced alternative to the other choices out there, but this item really is worth the dough. You will need the proper tools (power drill) to attach the add-on boxes to the post and you will need to buy the 4'x4' post. I bought this along with the No-dig Ground Screw and I was very happy with the end result. Everyone comments on how nice it looks, and don't forget, it's the first thing most people see when they drive up to your house.
