Maxim MX 85926 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Maxim MX 85926 Energy Star Wall Sconces Purchased (2) White ones for my Mother-in-Law's home. Arrived within 5 days of shipping notification from warehouse in original packaging. Packaging was okay, and the product installed very easily. Bulbs that came with it were only 13 watts (CFL) which is the equivalent of a 60 watt incandescant bulb. Installation completed within 30 minutes from start to finish. Not a bad product at all. The Photocell was the key factor in this purchase since the Mother-In-Law is always forgetting to turn on or off her outside lights!! Needed more information on replacement Compact Flouresant Lamps (CFL) from the Manufacturer. They referred me back to LightingDirect vendor for information. They stated I needed to contact the manufacturer Maxim. So I did with little success. After running around between the two of them several times, and very long hold times on the phone, finally a gentlemen in the manufacturers engineering department stated that the replacement CFL bulbs could be purchased through any Home Depot or Lowes outlets. I am still looking for the exact replacement bulbs as of this writing. I also needed to know what the maximum CFL wattage rating is for these fixtures. The paperwork in the box only gives installation information. Online I could only find what CFL bulb came with it, (13 watts CFL) not what exact type/model, or maximum wattage it supports. I would like to try a 26 watt CFL rated bulb (equivalent to a 100 watt incandescant), but am reluctant since I have no technical specifications to support my inquiries. Also, LightingDirect does not sell replacement CFL bulbs for these fixtures. And Maxim the manufacturer will not sell CFL bulbs direct to me, but only to its vendor outlets such as LightingDirect. Overall, good product for the money. Wished they would have they sold them in pairs for a discount price instead of priced per unit, and also wish they would state the maximum wattage the fixture can support on their web-site with an exact CFL bulb type and model..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from traditional, energy saving, bright These lamps go very well on our 1912 house. The compact flourescent bulb is bright, but uses little energy. The solar cell control turns off the light during the daytime saving even more energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from photo cells lights Love our new outdoor lights. They come on & go off with daylight when we are home or traveling. They were as advertised and arrived in good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted! This light was just what we were looking for in an outdoor light. We need one for the bulb and covering to go downwards instead of upwards. It was perfect....and the right price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of light and easy to install! I bought 4 of these a month or two ago and they were easy to install, work perfectly and put off a lit of light - great value!
