I have driven many miles to buy these posts for my wood fence projects. Now they are available in almost all Home Depots. They make fence building faster, stronger and insure that there will be no rotten posts.
Pros: Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Install, Strong

Review 2 for 1/8 in. x 3-1/8 in. x 7-1/2 ft. Metal Post
These posts are definitely sturdy. They held up to 70+ MPH winds over the course of three days. However, they 2x4 wooden rails did not. They split on both ends without any issue due to the base nails only being able to go in less than 1/2 inch from the end. Although these posts didn't bend or snap, I have to replace over 100 feet of the rest of the fence. Needless to say, I will be ripping these posts out and replacing them with the strut round ones that have braces that go a couple inches in on the ends for support.
If you have little to no wind, go for it. If you have moderate to high winds, do NOT get these!
Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Install, Light Weight
Cons: not for high winds!

Review 3 for 1/8 in. x 3-1/8 in. x 7-1/2 ft. Metal Post
This is the last wood fence post you'll ever use. Like changing the oil in your car, you'll have to replace the framework & pickets every 10-15 years, but not these posts. Brilliant design & ease of application is for all DIY'rs

Review 6 for 1/8 in. x 3-1/8 in. x 7-1/2 ft. Metal Post
I have been using this post for years and love it! it works great. i never have to worry if it is going to rot out or if i am going to have to replace it because it won't!! When it first came out they were a lot more then what they are now which i am glad to see the price has come down but the product is still as good as it was five years ago when I first started using the system.

Review 7 for 1/8 in. x 3-1/8 in. x 7-1/2 ft. Metal Post
I got tired of my wooden fence posts rotting, so had started replacing them with metal chain link posts. Drilling into a round post wasn't the easiest, but it was done. Imagine my surprise to find these great posts at Home Depot. For only a couple of dollars more, they have made it so much easier to replace the rotten wood posts. Gradually, all my wood posts will be replaced with these posts.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Alternative for Real Wood, Easy to Install, Light Weight
