Review by RoboKaren on June 18th, 2011
Bought mine for $139+tax by waiting until it was on sale for $159 and then using my 20% coupon. Unit works well, puts out around 50 watts in full sunlight. Amorphous thin-film cells are not as efficient as multicrystalline cells and so are larger, but they also work better in the shade. In any case, the price/performance of $3/watt can't be beat.

The charge controller isn't the best quality and would be the first item I'd recommend swapping out with a quality one when you have a chance. But otherwise, this is great for powering a shed or outhouse if you don't want to pull a mainline out there.
