Good, lots of light, easy install, double payne lense
Turned a very dark room (due to attached porch) into a pleasant room in the house. They let a lot of light in, though seemingly not quite as much as some other brand's sun tubes I installed (odl I think), but that may be due to 1, the low profile, and 2, the orientation of the house.

let me use the sun tubes as lights at night. I had roofers install the top portion while installing a roof, but it seemed pretty straight forward and possibly the most challenging part. Inside, I just had to cut a small hole to locate the rafters, then use the attached compass like template to cut the holes. everthing else fit perfectly. Simply cut the holes, screw the bottom plate, pull the attached tube through the hole, cut to size with a sharp knife, screw in the plastic retainer ring, and snap on the magentic lense. The lense is double pain and looks nice (far better than the ODL ones). For the light kit, the instructions online were wrong, had to get a paddle bit that would work (just size to the wire projection, listed bit is wrong online, possibly right in the ones that came with), but I ended up drilling the one hole to let the wires through, and doing all the wiring Pulled through retainer ring, flex tube, and mounting bracket then wiring, then secured the flex tube and retainer ring, as I did not have attic access. Took a bit more thought, but got it wired, then finished securing everything with the light dangling, then secured the light. I have not tried the passive vent feature, and probably wont, but I could see that being useful in a bathroom or laundry room.
