I used these in a situation where they were outside yet not being rained on (under a large overhang) and they would be used for an hour or two per week, for only about 12 weeks of the year.
For that kind of usage, these bargain basement lights should serve long and well. I would NOT use them in an application where they were exposed directly to weather or where they will be run all night every night. If you want that be realistic and pay more.
It’s not dusk to dawn like the HPS light, but I put it on a timer and it is working well. I may install a photoelectric switch later so I won’t have to make seasonal changes to the timer.

Ended up the wife wants a softer, more directional light approach to the house corner lights ( more show than go).
This light is very bright, very wide beam, which is not what she wanted. Would possibly use as an UpLight in our trees – If it can be mounted above the eye level.
Ended up replacing a 500 watt Halogen work light on a stand ( removed the old light and mounted this in place). They works out very very well. What I really like it when working in confined spaces – it does not get overwhelmingly hot, and I do not have to worry about bumping ing the old extremely hot halogen bulb (again).
Minimal usage in terms of hours, but some rough handling so far.

I planned on applying silicone to all the joints also mentioned in previous comments, however both ends (lens and transformer) had rubber gaskets to seal everything up.
The label on the back says it is IP67 rating which is a decent waterproof rating. Assume it is true. Also it is CE certified (European electrical certification) rather then UL. I noticed that before purchasing so was OK with it. For $13 was expecting much, but so far so good. Good quality for the price.
The front lens is a very thick glass as well.
This still gets 4 stars because for the price it would have been fine in a sheltered area or worth the effort waterproofing though the 2″ power cord is a challenge. If you do get one be aware that the ground lead is connected to…..nothing, it’s just loose inside.
