Probably like a lot of you, I bought this to replace a similar-style light that had died. My old one was one of those "Fluorex" high-efficiency fluorescent lights, which died after about four years, and the expensive replacement bulb didn't fix it, so it was something in the electronics. I wasn't sure about this technology, if I'd like the very bright white light it throws off. The old Fluorex light was already much whiter than the Halogen that replaced, and this LED is whiter still, but I absolutely love this light!
In my case, it's mounted under the eave at the peak of a detached garage roof, about 20 feet in the air, and even at only 45 watts, throws off an impressive amount of light. Easily lights the majority of my 3000+ square foot driveway, and we could probably even comfortably play basketball after dark with just this one light (contrast this to my parents' incandescent flood lights when I was a kid, that probably took 10 to 20 times the wattage for a similar light output).
I also like this new LED light because the dusk-to-dawn photo sensor is a little more conservative than other lights I've had. Because this is mounted under a roof overhang, it's slightly shaded, and so previous lights would come on way too early, and stay on way too long the following morning, whereas this one seems just right. The photo sensor is mounted horizontally (pointing forward from the upper part of the housing), rather than vertically from the top as my old light was, which I think also helps it come on and go off at just the right times.
I've had it only about a month, so I obviously can't speak to its longevity, but it has a nice long warranty, and really no moving/replaceable parts, so I'm expecting it to be a great purchase.
And finally, the fact that it's a very lightweight unit was a plus. Probably less than half the weight of the unit it replaced, and while that may not seem significant to some, I'm not overly comfortable being 20+ feet in the air on an extension ladder, so I found it was much easier to wire and attach this unit than any previous ones.
Very happy with this product!
