I purchased this light for outdoor use above my garage door area to replace the ordinary lantern type that was there. It was easy to install, the build quality is excellent and bottom line, looks great. A nice contemporary upgrade from what I had. I bought the electronic compact fluorescent version and even though it's 2x26 watts, it is very bright. In fact, this size is probably just a bit too bright for my application however I live in the country so it really lights up the area nicely, but if you have neighbors nearby, others may want to consider a smaller version. Ylighting's staff was very helpful in choosing the right version. Definitely recommended.
