The installation of the fixture was an exercise in frustration. It was definitely a two person job, the most difficult part for us was sliding the base onto the screws to hold it to the ceiling. I strongly suggest you purchase better hardware separately.
The light output is also less than I would want. I was replacing a larger, defunct T8 four bulb fixture in the kitchen, and had hoped to have the equivalent light output from this 2 bulb fixture, but sadly, no. I loved the ease of installation of the bulbs. No more struggling with T8's. These are plug and play.
I have no issue with light leakage, as so many reviews mentioned. There is a halo of light around the fixture, which I believe is reflected light, a look I personally like.
If I ever replace the ceiling fan in the same room, I will purchase the matching round fixture to compliment this one.
In retrospect, this fixture would do nicely in a smaller room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pauprint43 Simply love it!!!!
Good looking, gives great light. The shape for the area in which it went was perfect for the best spread of light. Even the professional installer loved it. Good weight and quality; didn't feel or look cheaply made. I purchased the round light that matches this one and am very happy at how well they look in their adjoining rooms.
BTW, I checked out the reviews on all the Home Depot fluorescent lights before selecting this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DD Goes well with longer rectangular style of these same brand lights
Have two of the same brand 4-bulb longer rectangular style lights that I use in my kitchen overall space and bought this additional oval one to place over the sink area. All three work well and look good together. Slim to the ceiling which I kind of like. I put softer bulb style in the rectangular lights as there are 4 bulbs in each, so still plenty enough light given I have two. This with the standard bulb that goes with the oval light covers the kitchen very well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RanVan Great Purchase.
(bought for kitchen) After reading every review on the lights I was interested in (and there were a lot) I have to say that this one was a definite winner. The light output is AMAZING. I was very surprised. I was replacing a 4 T8 bulb light with a 2 T9 bulb (same wattage) light so I was very hesitant about how much light output and distribution there will be and it is exactly what I needed. Nice design. The only complaint is that now I have to do some repair work around this light because it is smaller than my previous light. (but worth it!) The installation took less than 30 minutes once everything was out of the box and I've never installed a light before AND I'm female. Ha!

I wanted a light fixture that would provide good, white light. I have nine foot ceilings and this one works great in our kitchen. I also like the clean appearance of the fixture.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jules Provides great full spectrum lighting.
I purchased these lights to illuminate a dark basement space where I've created an artist's studio. The 5000K full spectrum bulbs were not suited to many other lighting fixtures. These lights (I purchased two) light up my basement like sunlight. Their appearance, however, was a little deceiving. A bit 'cheap' looking I think. If they were going into any other space besides a 'cellar' I would return them. But they get the job done. I had an electrician install them as replacement fixtures, so I'm sure it was a simple task.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susan Very happy with this product
I needed a fluorescent fixture for my laundry room. It is a very nice design with the brushed nickel accents and matches the rest of the room's faucets and appliances. Has two round fluorescent bulbs which provide a great degree of light.
