Rated 4 out of 5Â by steevo Nice light, but maybe not perfect.
I installed mine just a few days ago. At the height I have it mounted, which is about 11 feet, the motion sensor can't see me unless I wave my hands above my head as I walk by. So I've decided to leave it on all night, which makes the incandescent energy-hog bulb included in the package inappropriate. I installed a yellow CFL, and it works fine in that mode. (When it burns out, I'll buy LED.) One other item: I wish the shade was about two inches longer so that it completely hides the bulb from view. (It should be noted, however, that If the fixture were mounted lower -- say 6 or 7 feet high, neither of these complaints would be an issue.)

Installed the product about two years ago and it would flicker when on. The product failed to operate. The electronics provided must have failed.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by dusty dust to dawn feature does not work properly
This is a nice looking lamp and I am keeping it because I got it to work on motion and manual on. the dusk to dawn feature strobes and does not work. The sensor sees the light from the fixture and thinks it is dawn. This is either a lamp that the sensor is angled wrong or it is just a bad design. I had an electrician put mine up so I know that it wired correctly. if I place my hand about 2 inches below the bottom of the shade, and between it and the sensor, it works fine.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by bgeery Use with LED bulbs
I've had four of these on my house for over a year without major complaint.
The 180 degree motion sensing works very well, but is more sensitive to objects passing across the field of vision instead of toward or away from the sensor. The sensors detect a car driving past at about 80-90 feet on the high sensitivity setting. People and animals are mostly detected at about half that range.
For those worried about reliability or quality of the electronics, I'd suggest only using these fixtures with LED bulbs. The heat and power demanded by 100 watt incandescent bulbs may be why some are having reliability problems with the electronics.
They are not perfect, and I suggest buying them from a local HD for easy exchange, if needed. But, they are a good value for the features included.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Owen Doesn't work in passageways
I installed this on the side of my house to light the passageway that runs along the side of the house toward the back yard. The motion sensor was advertised as having a "180 degree field of view" which was needed for this passageway since the light was immediately adjacent to the walkway. However, the motion sensor didn't detect me until I was about 4' from it, even when it was set to the highest sensitivity. It seems to be okay at detecting movement across the field of view of the sensor, but can't detect movement toward or away from it, at all, apparently. It was mounted at about 8' from the ground. Apart from that one major failing it seemed like a pretty good product, and if they added $5 to the price for a fully functional motion detector, I'd be totally happy with it.
