From the Manufacturer
Our most powerful solar floodlight includes three adjustable lamps, each with three white LEDs to provide improved light output. Each lamp features a ground stake and surface-mounting bracket for a variety of installations. Each lamp is connected to a remote solar collection panel via 20 feet of weatherproof cable, which allows the fixtures to be up to 40 feet apart. The solar panel swivels in any direction for optimal solar energy collection. The sun charges fixture batteries by day and turns on automatically at night with no electical wiring or cost to operate.

LENGTH OF CHARGE
Most days I have used the lights, the panel had decent-but-not-amazing sun. Dusk was just after 5pm, and the lights turned on then via the automatic sensor. I thought the charge would drain much sooner, but the lights lasted until morning, with no loss in intensity. The rechargeable AA batteries are removable - awesome! When they eventually stop holding a full charge, you can drop by Radio Shack and grab a set to replace them. That'll be a while though. The fixtures are plastic, but for $39, who cares.
QUALITY OF LIGHT
This is the best set of solar garden-style lights I have seen. In addition to the great charge, they are brighter. Are the three lights together as bright as a table lamp? No. Are they as bright as my refrigerator bulb? No. Are they bright enough to read by? Yes. Even at about six feet away, I can read comfortably. However, keep in mind, these are not for general illumination. They're more like little spotlights. Designed to shine on a path, fence, or tree. The thing being lit needs to be in the path of the beam. The quality of the light is a little weird - that blueish-white you seen on headlights.
I use the lights in a place where we don't have electric. (Great for a shed, for instance. Or of course, outdoors on paths, fences, plants, trees.) Also, these would be pretty neat for camping! They would be perfect on a porch, driveway, or white fence. (The lighter the color of the thing lit, the more light is reflected.)
ENERGY SAVINGS & EASE OF USE
Let's be clear - You are not going to save a fortune in electricity by using this tiny set of solar lights. Using a 50 watt lamp instead (which is much brighter) would only cost you ten cents to run for twenty hours, even if you pay .10 per kwh on your electric bill. It would take about two years of nighttime use to make your $39 back here. However, if you are using a battery lantern regularly, you'll quickly rack up battery savings. I like them because they can stand alone, without wiring or a bunch of expensive D cells. Point the panel toward the sun and plug in the lights.
Great reflector, better longer-lasting charge than any I have ever seen on a solar set. Love the fact that the rechargeable batteries can be replaced. Decent output. Light is a little blueish-white and weird. But I think they are pretty terrific for $39.
Some general notes about solar powered lights:
1) you need to place the panel where it gets direct light all day every day. This is key to recharging; more direct light means the lights will stay on longer at night.
2) Since they use batteries, which will need replacing, it's nice to get easy to replace batteries - AA NIMH are about the easiest to deal with.
3) self-contained lights are easiest, you can put them anywhere they get light. Light sets with a base and separate lamps allow you to put the lamps in shady spots, but you are limited by the cord length, as the base will still need to go in direct sun light, and the lamps will need to plug into the base.
About these lights in specific: I use these lights to light a 10' by 14' back porch. They have a base, and 3 lamps, each plugs directly into the base. I used the bolt-on installation adapters to install the lights under the porch roof and attached the base to the eaves. The base is in direct light all day.
The lamps are fairly bright. With my set-up, 3 lamps makes the whole back porch about 4x as bright as the full moon, just barely not enough light to read by. Getting full direct light all day allows the batteries to last all night (I installed mine in April; the batteries might not last all night in the dead of winter). I liked these well enough, I added two sets to light up the front porch and walk way. It's just enough light to not need the porch light, unless I'm expecting company.
Before installing them, I left the base in the sun all day, then connected the lamps at night, and walked around with them. This gave me a good idea for how bright they are and what distances they are good for. I strongly suggest making this kind of survey before installing the lights.
UPDATE---I've had these lights going on three years and they're still going strong. I'm absolutely amazed at the quality and longevity. I've found that the solar panels actually just contain three rechargeable AA batteries. I've actually used the panels to charge other rechargeables in a pinch. Money well spent.
FURTHER UPDATE---These lights are STILL going strong. I am, quite honestly, stunned. I bought these in June of 2008. It's now Sep30 2013. They just keep working without issue. No dimming. Not dead LEDs. I just wish Amazon still sold them. I'd buy a few dozen. For the record, the solar charger panel houses simple rechargeable AA batteries. You can (and I do) use this to recharge the batteries and use them in devices that take AA batteries (make sure your device will run okay on NiCad as that's what they use and they're slightly lower voltage than a normal AA battery).
