Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Greg standard lighting
these are just standard lighting. I was going to get one of the 13 dollar ge lights that is also a 18 inch t8, they are made of plastic and come with a cord. this is made of metal but does not have its own cord.
I expected it would have a heavy duty universal ballast like commercial or professional lights I have purchased in the past, but no it just has a simple cheap one in a plastic case in the light fixture.
the only difference between this and the plastic fixtures ge makes is this has a metal case.
the store inventory said they had 3 of the plastic fixtures in stock .
but when they could not find any, they sold me this one for the same price.
lucky I have extension cords I sacrifice as replacement lamp cords, to wire in a plug for it.
how ever I would not pay 20 dollars for this fixture as I have gotten commercial light fixtures for that price with a quality ballast.
this is why I am only going to give it 2 stars and when I do need to get some more 24 inch light fixtures I'm not getting ge advantage, I'm going back to the commercial fixtures I got in the past.
glad I got this one by mistake so to speak before getting a ge 24 inch advantage.

The overhead lighting in my kitchen is insufficient, so I bought these fixtures to install under the upper cabinets. They provide good lighting for the countertops. Not being do-it-yourselfers, we had to have them professionally installed.

I bought this for a closet light. It could be brighter. Hopefully the long life and operating expense will outweigh the cons.

The light fixture was easy to install and included the flourescent bulb. Prior to the purchase, I priced a flourescent bulb to use in the existing old fixture. However, the cost of the "light fixture" that included the bulb, was less expensive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TESLAwasagenius Too many screws
Too many screws to open the wiring section. Two very small phillips screws near each end. And two nuts on the wiring cover lip spaced at thirds, that requires a hollow nut driver or deep socket.
Unit has an lightweight electronic ballast. But there is very little space inside the wiring cover to tuck in the wire slack from the wall.
This was replacing a similar unit by Lithonia that had gone bad. It was under a cabinet in back of the kitchen sink, so it was a very difficult lean in. Trying to hold the wiring cover in place and get those four screws started was a major pain. Hard to hold close because wiring compartment was so tight. The light works ok, but a very poor design for installing.

The knockouts came in two sizes, one for the included strain relief, one much larger.
The only knockout in range of my wiring was the large one and as such I had to scavenge the feed-through from the old fixture being replaced.
One of the posts for fastening the wiring cover fell out. Once I found it and reinserted it it worked well enough.
I can imagine a first-timer DIY type having some difficulty with the install.
