Wow, very brightAug 24, 2010
By Marcus A. Hawkins
Brighter than I expected. Bright as a street light. It illuminates my neighbors (across the street) front yard and driveway - some 90 feet away.
The sensor works great. Mine is mounted about 18 feet over my driveway on the house. Cars driving by on the street (measured at 40 feet) set the sensor off. It comes with plastic tabs which you can cut to limit the range (I will do that tomorrow). So far, no false positives (random turning on). There is absolutely no delay and turns on at every angle (even directly underneath it).
Like all motion sensors - it's a pain to adjust the time setting. Lots of trial and error (and in my case, dozens of trips up and down a ladder). Of course, that's just where the technology is.
The light fixture is made of a strong aluminum (it gets very hot very fast) and the sensor and mounts are made of plastic. I don't see any quality problems with this design (even though I was troubled about the plastic when taking the unit out of the box). Once mounted - it demonstrated to be very strong and secure.

It Actually Works - UPDATEFeb 11, 2011
The two lamps are still going strong after 1.5 years. No worries.
Original Review - I purchased two of these exterior lights based on the reviews. They work almost perfectly and are very bright. They are as good as outdoor motion sensor lights get (unfortunately).
The only problem that I have had is that one of the lights tends to come on during an overcast day. I'm confident that if I play with the adjustments a bit more I will get it to work as intended. That means hauling out the ladder again.
One more thing, the escutcheon (attachment ring) that covers the adjustment dials is very loose. You must install the supplied motion sensor shroud to lock it securely in place.
As others have said, I would have preferred the mounting plate to be metal rather than plastic. I would have also liked a notch in the mounting plate to feed the Romax wiring through. But based on other motion sensor lights that I have tried in the past, this one deserves five stars.
