I recently upgraded to a 32-foot brushed aluminum flagpole to replace a gnarly old 20-foot steel pole. At the same time, I decided to install some lights for nighttime display, and after doing some research I settled on these LED floodlights.
I wanted something a little more quality/permanent than the cheezy plastic ground spikes, and the bases screwed right onto half-inch threaded PVC pipes, which are set in concrete bases. I also purchased a Malibu power supply with "electric eye" that turns the lights on at dusk, off at dawn.
I'm quite pleased with the results. But be aware - these are FLOOD lights; I wish they were more of a "spot" beam to focus the light in a smaller space. But these will do. The light color is nice - not that stark bluish-white you think of with LED illumination.
I anticipate these lights will last a long, long time... and that the savings realized in lower energy consumption will reward me for the higher purchase price of LED illumination over incandescent.
I've attached a photo of my new flagpole, and you can see the two lights about 6 feet out from the base.

I have six of these in the front of my house including my light for my flag. I have them on a 300wt box and really get a lot of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JTee Perfect with frosted film on glass
When I first plugged this in I liked how bright it was but I didn't like how harsh it was. it looked like a U shaped beam on the wall with a sharp edge cutoff. Sort of like a projector based HID headlight.
Adding film on it completely softened the lights I it doesn't look like a flashlight. it should of come like this!

I purchased 6 of those Malibu LED's and they all stopped working within 6-9 months, like clockwork. 100% failure rate. The real problem: those flood lights are a one-way deal. The LED's cannot be replaced (and why are we made to believe they will work for thousands of hours??).
I sort of liked the housing of these flood lights and did not want to throw them away. After gutting them, I was able to rebuild them and fit MR 16 LED's (check YouTube, there are some interesting videos that explain how to do that). You can find those bulbs on eBay for $5 (or less) a piece and they work as well as the ones sold at your local retail store - and you'll save a bundle!
The sad reality: all these LED bulbs are still manufactured in CHINA.
LED lighting is the FUTURE but you don't want to waste your money on this particular flood light!
