A Best Buy

Model Number: XP645
"Purchased one light last summer for sideway of my house. It has been recommended by one of my coworker so I decided to give it a try. Nicely designed for easy installation and very bright illumination. So impressed, I bought another one as Christmas gift for brother-in-law at Chicago. He loves it.
One tip for snowing area users: Remember to Clean up the Snow on Solar Board right after snow storm! Otherwise, it won’t charge well!

Brightest Solar I've seen

Pros: low cost, bright light
"We got this hoping it would light up the immediate steps in front of our house. Not only does it light up that space but the light extends out into the street as well. We use it in the motion sensor mode and the motion sensor is very sensitive. In the motion sensor mode, the battery lasts all night and it still lights up in the morning when I go out to get the news paper. This is the most economical light I have seen with this kind of power"

Best security light in the market!

"After reading some of the reviews I decided to wait a little longer before posting mine! I had this great product for a little over a year now, so far, I haven't had any problems with it. Style, brightness and easy installation are some of the advantages I value the most. Also called up the manufacturer for some tips, they were very friendly and helpful. It works like the first day! By far, better than similar products I've used in the past."

My experience after 6 Mons.

"I had issue at beginning, it worked only one week. The light won’t go on anymore. First I think it is the dead battery, after I called customer service to reset the “Ambient level” all the way to the right at “ – ” which means it only illuminate at dark and make sure solar board placed at a good location facing south. Plus, double checked the wire is completed plug into the unit. Then, it works again! Be very care with the settings since it’s a little confusing at the beginning."

Questionable Reliability

"This product appears to be well designed and very functional. The light is surprisingly bright for a solar-powered unit, and the motion sensor similarly is surprisingly sensitive. However, it worked less than one week before temperatures plunged into the teens and below -- and then it stopped. Had I read some of the other reviews on this site, I probably would not have purchased it. I expect to let it be until temperatures warm up to see if the low temps may have disabled the battery or the like. Bottom line: The unit may be of questionable reliability."

Very bright for solar light

Pros: great illumination for a solar light., easy to install
Cons: no sensitivity adjustment on motion detector, battery charge won't last all night
"I mounted the light on the corner of my house to light the driveway. The unit is about 10 off the ground. It does a really nice job of lighting the driveway and front walk. I'm quite pleased with the amount of light it produces. As others have mentioned in their reviews, the motion detector is very sensitive. In my opinion it's too sensitive. I wish the unit had a sensitivity adjustment. I live on a corner lot and the side street is rather busy. I think the unit is constantly being triggered by the headlights and/or movement of approaching cars on the street, so it stays on all the time once darkness falls. As a result the battery seems to fully discharge every night, so it stops working after 3 to 5 hours. There are two adjustments on the unit -- delay time and ambient light. The delay time varies the time the light stays on when it senses motion. The time range is from 5 to 60 seconds. The ambient light setting is used to set how dark it must be outside for the unit to come on. Others have stated their units failed at 6 months and that they failed in cold temperatures. I've had my unit about three months and it has continued to work even when nighttime temperatures dipped into the low teens this past February. I'll continue to watch it and hope it makes it past 6 months."
