Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DSC44 Excellent Porch Light
We love our new front porch light. The actual installation was fine, but changing the bulb once it is up is a bit challenging. There are very small screws on the bottom of the light with a cover that are difficult to get back in once you've changed the bulb. Not easy to handle when you're standing directly under the light or on a ladder. Otherwise, the light looks great and is definitely bright enough to provide good vision at night. Looks great from the street.

The light itself is very nice and adds a nice bit of elegance to the walkway. The instructions in the box...not so much. Just throw them away as they're useless. Just a bunch of pictures with arrows pointing to things.
It's a pretty straight forward install, especially if you're replacing an existing light. In my case, I removed the ugly old one, adjusted the chain to length, then threaded the wire through the nipple holding it to the bracket. This took a second but is relatively easy if you have something to rest the light on or someone to hold it for you while you do it.
As for wiring, the thing that threw me was it has 2 black wires and a ground. According to a home depot video it said in that case either wire can connect to the white and the other to the black. It seems to have worked and I've checked the box and lamp for any stray voltage with a multi-meter. All in all, it took about an hour and a half to install mainly because I wasted too much time trying to understand the directions rather than using my noggin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PinkPanther Better than the picture
I was looking for a lantern to hang over my front porch such that it would have one light and which would have matching wall mounted lights to install next to my garage. I wanted a one light lantern, because I use Philips bulbs with built-in light sensors in them, I like my outside lights to go on from dusk to dawn automatically at all times. I also didn't want a lantern that is similar to all of my neighbors'.
It took me a long time to decide on this light, but I bought it today and I installed it right away. I am really happy with how it looks. In the house setting it looks so much better than on the picture or in the store! The bulbs with light sensor work well in it, which makes me even happier. I was worried that non-transparent enclosure of this lantern would reduce the amount of light, but it doesn't. It conceals the lightbulb from the view, so it looks great both when it's lit and when it's off during the daytime. When lit, it gives a warm, cozy, inviting light.
Also, the other reviewers mentioned that their lantern came without the bottom decorative plate and they had to buy it separately, but mine already had the bottom lid in the box.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CheesePatrol Looks great, instructions are useless
Installation would have gone smoother if I had thrown out the instructions from the get-go rather than trying to decipher them. They are completely and utterly useless. Once I ignored the instructions, installation was easy and straightforward, except when it came to feeding the power cord through the hollow rod. The hole is extremely small and barely fits the power cord and ground wire. Attempting to fish them through while standing on my ladder 12 feet up proved to be impossible. I ended up taking the whole thing down and doing this on the ground, then screwing the mount bracket into the box.
The light looks great and output is good, even with the frosted glass and a 60 watt equivalent CFL. I may swap it out for a 100w equivalent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orange A wonderful addition to our outdoor kitchen!
We hung two of these lights over our outdoor kitchen counter. They look fabulous. We also put the wall mounted matching fixture next to our bedroom door that opens to the covered patio. I am now going to order two matching pole fixtures for the brick columns next to our pool. We love these fixtures!!!!
