The lights are fine, but are not packaged for individual delivery. Two of the four delivered to my home were damaged. To make the lights light enough to install overhead, they are necessarily made from thin sheet metal. With no soft protection around the lights in the box, a corner drop from waist high to the ground will bend the metal and crack the plastic lens.
Of you buy these lights - and they are good lights - have them delivered to the store and open each one there to make sure they are not damaged in shipment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by resq302 Expected better quality
Visually, this lighting product was excellent. It installed VERY easy and I like that it has a quick disconnect plate to unhook the wiring without having to loosen the wire clamp on the housing of the light. The down fall, which is a huge one for me, was how cheap the metal is. Using a cordless driver with a phillips head bit, I snugged down the screws that had a flip out arm to secure the light in place into the ceiling. Sadly, two of the four screws that tighten up the fixture stripped and I had to twist the metal enough to get the threads in the screws to catch again and allow the fixture to tighten up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BlakeE Fit all my needs hard to find
Lights work great. Installed in new construction detached garage.
These lights were exactly what i was looking for. I couldn't find another troffer that recessed in sheetrock like these do.
Some lights arrived with minor damage and some appeared used. But they all installed and worked great. Luckily they're for my garage.
Note: When building the box use 2x3's and the side ones turn flat. The wings that tighten down need the clearance.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jp5 These lights look great but; they run very hot!!!!!!!!
I bought the lights when they first came out. I usually read the review but; these were so new there were none. I installed them over a model railroad layout I was building. I installed them in my basement during the Winter. The first fixture lasted exactly one year before the ballast quit working. No warranty so I replaced. This is the first year I've tried to work on the layout during the Summer. These lights run very hot. It's so warm it is uncomfortable to be there for more than fifteen or twenty minutes. Before you assume, the basement is air conditioned. You have been warned! I'm going to replace them with track lighting. Anyone want two free fixtures?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RAelec The perfect light for my application, but.......
I ordered four of these fixtures to install in a grocery store meat dept. They were expanding their operation into an area of the store that has a low ceiling and there was no room for surface mount fixtures. These recessed fixtures were the perfect solution. They are only available online and the shipping process damaged a lense on one fixture and bent the housing on another. I fixed these issues myself because I didn't have the time to go through the return process. I found the housings on these fixtures to be a little flimsy but the price is right. Once installed they look fine. I guess my only real issue is that they are not available in-store.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KenW Shipping Problems Fixed, Lights Fairly Good
Prior reviews noted that parts were beat up in shipping. Because of this, I had my order shipped to the store so I could reject any problem items. The HD associate noted that my order had been shipped via UPS, and that that was unusual. The items arrived at the store in good shape, and I rejected none of the 12 lights ordered. I bought the lights to use while finishing my basement.
The lights themselves look good when put up. The bracketry for them is a bit wobbly. I suggest putting in a pop-rivet to keep the bracket firmly affixed to the light housing. That requires drilling 4 holes and installing the rivet. Wiring was easy, light dispersion is very good.
For installation, I put in 2x2 framing to allow for easier cutout of the drywall when installed. It also provides a nice, solid clamp surface. My only issue doing this is the light is exactly 48" long. To ensure proper clearance, I made the opening 48 1/8", meaning I could only get one side of the opening per 2x2. It would be better if it would be done with a 48" rough opening.
