Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly The product size and capabilities was perfect.
I bought the 2' light, which allowed me to hang it from 2 hooks and enclose it in a large windowsill to make it my own little personal seedling box. The brightness is amazing, and this was the first year we decided to do seedling. The veggies started to sprout literally within 2 days under the light.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Petey Great for starting my seeds
I bought a couple of these lights to go in an indoor greenhouse. We have used them for a couple of years to start seedlings for the spring and extend the life of some plants in the fall. Currently, we have several flats of lettuce, spinach, leeks, and onion growing despite a harsh winter. We are already picking the lettuce. We will be using the lights for other garden plants as soon as we can move our cold weather crops out of the greenhouse.
The lights are nice and easy to install with plenty of chain to raise and lower the light level which is frequently needed. The only complaint I have is the plastic covers over the bulbs. They are a bit fragile and hard to remove (which needs to be done to unpack the light). The lights are also quite pricey.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BeerBelly Ok lights but spendy for the output
Have two of these lights for seedlings. Toss out the deflectors all they do is impede the light. Warm running lights so keeps your sprouts toasty. The hangars are a joke and the daisy chain plug is on the bottom unlike the picture that shows it on the side. Good light output though. CANT use HO bulbs!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cristalina Great lamp for seedlings :-)
Great lamp for starting seeds. Wish the inside backing of the lamp would reflect the light. I modified my lamps by using commercial aluminum tape used by HVAC installers. It's heat resistant and reflects light back to the plants where it's needed. Maybe next year the manufacturer will include a reflective backing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joey Good service, bad product.
Product worked well for about 2 weeks, and then abruptly stopped working. Took item to local Home Depot store and easily obtained a refund.

These have worked great! My plants love it. I just wish that Home Depot sold the replacement bulbs. I love the fact that I can adjust the height easily and that you can connect several lights together and operate from one timer. The one disappointment is that it is described as being 12 inches wide and it is only 5.5 inches wide. It still works OK over my cell trays, but would be better if it was the 12-inch width.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jeramiah Unit outlet not as shown in photo
I bought 2 of these in 2013, and 2 more in 2014. The unit to unit plug/outlet (female) is in a different location. The newer year shows the the end outlet location on the box, however the plug was actually located on the down-side of the light. This makes it more difficult to plug the units into each other and get the lights close to seedlings if there is a cover. The older style was much better with the outlet on the end, but I don't know how you can tell which version you are buying!?!?!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JulieBW Great small light, with replacement bulbs also available
I used the included chains to suspend this from a single Rubbermaid-type storage shelf, which I perched on an old dresser. Perfect, I just wanted a small set up to start a few earlier seeds and some greens. Some plants will eventually get planted outdoors, the greens will grow fine under the lights so I can eat them before the weather warms. Other grow lights on a stand cost way more than this. The smaller T5 bulbs are great, and I've been told they last much longer than the old fluorescents.
