Great light! I highly recommend it. I have 13 feet ceilings in my workshop which is 20 by 24 feet and one light lights the whole area.

I replaced a basic light in the garage with this unit. Unfortunately it says not to flush mount so I had to also purchase a receptical cover and wiring extension and associated wiring protection. Also the wiring diagram wasn't for the novice. Googling and learning got me the answers I needed though and it did coincide with their wiring diagram.
Amazing output and looks great. I'll likely replace the other 2 in my garage as well

The light fixture is truly bright and that is what I wanted. It appears to be sold as a surface mount fixture (per display) but the installation instruction say to hang from ceiling at least 18". Why?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Warpdrive Good bright light , remember the extras.
Bought 2 of the 4 bulb fixtures for a new hig bay shop 16x 36 X 16h. The lighting looks about right and seem to do a good job.
The fixture does need more than what's in the box.
First you need 4 bulbs per unit at $10 each
Then there is no hanging chains included but you have to hang it to avoid over heating if you flush mount.
So be sure to get the hanging kit $4, they recommend 18" from the ceiling! Not practical unless you have an open ceiling with exposed frames or rafters. Mine had to be dry walled by the Twps. regs. So I just used the wire hangers on steel hooks. It's 4" from ceiling , should be decent cooling clearance.
There is no wiring/plug to connect to the power so whether you are hard wiring or plugging in you need to add that. I used the end of 2 new extension cords with nice molded on plugs. If my stuff was not in storage I could have used old wire and plugs off retired appliances or computers.
The wiring diagram looks a little tricky as it talks about setting up using only 2 or 3 bulbs? Fortunately it has a note on the fixture that it's pre wired for all 4 on, so hook up is easy. Remember to use a cord restraint as reqd. Pack of 10 another $5 .
If you did try to surface mount you would find it not set up for easy disassembly and mounting. Use the hangers. Also I found the upper and lower main metal sections had nothing holding then together and we're coming apart in the middle so I added a cable tie around the entire fixture in the center.( behind the reflector).
Before I hung the fixture I tested on the bench then left the cardboard packaging ends on to protect the bulb ends as I did not want to put the bulbs in 16' in the air. ( bulbs are only 5/8 dia and $10 each!)
Overall good fixtures but with all the extras and bulbs nearer $150 each. LEDs are a good bit more but closer than you think as price includes bulbs and hangers for LEDs.
Decided to go with new fixtures as without a lift, bulb replacement or repairs would be a real chore.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TN33 Good lighting, but all 10 were damaged
All these lights were damaged when the electrician removed them from the boxes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthTexasRancher Best shop lights I have installed so far.
My work shop is 50x60 with 16 foot walls. I had installed high output t-8s on one side of the shop and they put out good light. A friend recommended the t-5 and I installed those on the the other side. The t-5s have a much better light out put for larger shops. I am going back today to buy more of the high output t-5s to replace my new t-8. Make sure you get the lights with a reflector. Huge difference for my tired eyes. Yes I would recommend these to my friends. I am glad my friend did so for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SatisfiedCustomer Great for a Pool Table Light
I bought this light because it is very bright and would illuminate my pool table very well. The light is perfect for this. I purchased the wood from HomeDepot and assembled a very nice looking light for my pool table.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dday daylight at night
Bought 13 of these for a 30 by 80 shop low profile and super bright. in stock at home depot. i used the high output bulbs @ 10 a pop and it basically makes it daylight in there at night. easy to install for my application. as the trusses ar 4' apart. I mounted to the bottom of the metal trusses and have about 3' clearance overhead.
