Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gardengrows Great small floods
These are great. I ordered many more. These are smaller than available in the retail stores, so not as bright and fewer watts--this is a good thing. I found that a little light goes a long way for up-lighting and accenting gardens/pool areas. You need to get your wiring in place and do the light placement at night! The 20W equiv. lights available in the stores are actually too bright for many applications. These lights come with the path light set so I discovered them by accident.

We bought several dozen Malibu LED lights to light up our front and back. More than half have completely died in just six months. Thought these were supposed to last for years?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JTee Protect the connections!
Mine have been going strong for 2 months. They are in the path of sprinklers 3x a week and have been rained on 3x.
The oem connectors are exposed to the elements. Wrapping it in quality 3M outdoor rated electrical tape completely seals them off. $3 a roll.
I am guessing this is where people are having failures. Malibu should redesign their connector or include the tape. A few videos from landscape lighting pros tells me the connection is the weakest link with these LED lights.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dave Worked great for a month.
I was impressed with the light output of this light for about a month. Then it started blinking off and on once every 5 minutes or so (none of the other lights on the same circuit were blinking). Each night the frequency increased until the point where my neighbors thought I was having a rave in my backyard. It now blinks several times a second. I've replaced it with another one that I had yet to install and the replacement works fine. Now to see if Home Depot will exchange it after it's been installed for a month in the dirt.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Mperez Malibu Needs to rethink the connector
The connector that marries the light to the carriage wire needs to be rethought. I had the same issues as everyone else. I have since soldered the wire and used heat shrink over the splice... not an issue since.
