Rated 4 out of 5Â by doug Good 8ft T12 strip light!
The original ballast worked good, for being a cheapo china electronic ballast BUT it ruins all FM radio reception in the shop, so i replaced the original with a spare magnetic ballast (something that should have never been banned ) I had. The quality of the fixture was good, not great like the older stuff.

Yes, it works but the stubby connectors that hold the bulbs in place are too short. The bulbs actually rest against the inner liner of the fixture when they are inserted. If Lithonia (the manufacturer) had taken more care they would have made the bulb holders an 1/8" - 1/4" longer for easier bulb insertion. The idea of a tandem light fixture is a great idea but the obvious lack of design thought puts a damper on this fixture.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by glmori Worked when I flipped the switch
Easy to put together and it worked when I flipped the switch. I put a 3/4" spacer between the ceiling and the fixture to dissipate the heat from the ballast. And I bought the brightest bulbs I could get. Satisfied for now.

Rated 2 out of 5 Cheaply made
The first one I bought had to be returned. The end was crumpled. I mean really crumpled and folded onto itself. Thanks for your excellent QC Home Depot! Got the second one with high hopes. Hopes soon dashed on the rocks. Parts were bent but the sheet metal used is so thin it was not too difficult to put back into shape. Shame to replace the old heavy duty American Made units with this piece of junk but the old unit used bulbs no longer available.
