I own of these and can vouch for them. Been using mine for 2 years now exposed to temps well below zero and over 100F in direct sunlight and still going strong! It is bright. The pictures shown on the site are accurate. It projects a well defined broad circle of light nearly as bright as a 60 watt bulb. Will last 6-12 months on 3 D cell batteries depending on brightness setting and how long you set the timer for. Don't buy the MSRP list price of 129 dollars. Typically this sells for 25-30 dollars.
