Rated 3 out of 5Â by OTMac Nice light, but housing needs some work
I've put 6 of these up for lighting a field. Easy to install and love the look of metal halide, but the weight of the housing makes prone to cracking the thin diecast housing at the adjustment fitting. I cracked 3 housings, 1 while installing.
Came to this page trying to find replacement parts. No parts on vendor site either. :(
Guess only other option is to buy a new one, put a broken one in a box, and return it to HD. Sorry HD! Get on your vendor to fix the design flaw. I build tools and molds for a living, this is an easy problem to solve for the vendor (...or, would be if vendor and their suppliers were on same continent and spoke same language - but that's a whole nother issue) .

Rated 1 out of 5Â by luigi Failed within 15 months
I bought this model in Oct 2012, within the year the bulb started coming on and off. I went to HD and they told me that the ballast must be the problem and I needed to contact the company. The company representative wrote me back that it was not the ballast but the bulb. I went back to HD and they gave me a new bulb free of charge. After one month the new bulb started to do the same. I suspect its the ballast/ignitor but I am not able to find a replacement. I would not recommend this light fixture. The enclosure is fine and the design is fine but the components inside seem to be low quality.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TonyCentralAlabama An Excellent Light
When I first installed the lights, one above my garage to light the driveway and the second, just two feet under the peak of the roof to light up the back yard. I installed a switch on each of them so I could shut them off individually during special functions (Fourth of July, etc). Otherwise, they would come on dusk to dawn. They are much cheaper than burning incadesant flood lights. They also have a white light that I prefer. When I installed them I decided to turn them vertical which covered a wider area of my desired coverage area. They have added much security to my home. When we are gone after dark and come home the yard is lit up and we feel secure getting out of the car going into the house. I now am looking to buy another for the other side of the house to light it up. I like them very much and would recommend them to anyone looking for that type of light.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bryan Takes some time to fully illuminate but once they do, WOW!
I replaced all of my halogen 500 watt exterior flood lights on my house with these. I reduced my power consumption by 400 watts per bulb and got 500 more lumen per bulb. The only draw back to these bulbs is that they take about 2 minutes to fully illuminate, which isn't that big of a deal unless you are needing light instantly. You also need to aim these light fixtures at night because I had no idea the field of illumination was so big. I was lighting up my neighbors yard before i realized i needed to re aim the fixtures. My yard looks like a football stadium now. I'm really happy with the purchase, and buying from home depot online was really convenient. They had my lights ready and waiting at the customer service desk!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kingfish I Was Very Pleased , I'm Not Easy .
This light was intended to light up the side of My property so My Cameras would have sufficient light to work right , and for me to see when I go outside , I live in the country , so No Street lights out here in "The Jack Nowhere's " !
The Light Frequency (color) is Very Good , Like those New LED Flashlights , and it Don't use Much Juice to run .
Very Bright , without blinding , and I Can Now see ALL The Deer at Night !
I Would Highly Recommend it , because it's not like those Typical flood types , It's Terrific .
