Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spoony Not A Quality Product!!!!
This product while being of better quality then the lowes brand is poorly crafted. The metal is thin, and the ballast is garbage... (also after some research the ballast isnt covered in manufacturers warranty.)
I originally purchased 4 of these lights when i installed them later that day 2 were faulty and did not work. I exchanged them for two new units, installed them and all worked as expected. Jump ahead to it now being 19 days outside of the 90 day home depot return policy and two of the units ballast have once again failed. Save yourself the trouble and buy something else...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jshel good light but don't use ship to home
i have used and installed over 50 of these fixtures. the lights work well have seen mixed results on the ballasts. some have been working for years others last months. the last batch i had to get some from a home depot store and others were ordered on homedepot.com because the stores inventory was so far off. i would never buy these and have them shipped again. i had broken bulbs, broken lens covers, every fixture had bent corners, and you learn this when you are opening the box to install them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RW Good drop ceiling light
I installed this light in my basement laundry room (drop ceiling), its very bright, was easy to install, light wieght, and a good price. Two issues are keeping me from giving it a 5 star:
1. No installation instructions, now its pretty straight forward but if you are someone who likes to read before you dive in dont expect to get any paperwork with it.
2. Sharp corners and really sharp lip inside the light cover....my dad handed the light up to me while i was on the ladder a cut himself pretty bad.... So wear gloves!

Awesome. Was easy to install, and less expensive than buying a new ballast and bulbs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lambition A standard light
It is an average standard troffer light. Has electric ballast (which most new fluorescent lighting does these days.).
Comes with fluorescent lamps, but I wish it didn't. Comes with cool white lamps, but I wanted daylight lamps. Had to replace all of the lamps and had to through out perfectly good brand new lamps.
Would been better if it did not come with lamps, and sell at lower price instead.
Built in pigtail wire is 18 AWG (which is same as internal wiring.).
While this is good enough for 1 or 2 lights, when connecting multiple lights linked to each other, it is too small of gauge to handle all the loads. I had to cut out most of those wires and replace with 12 AWG wires (14 would been enough, but circuit was 20A, so ran in 12 AWG) except last ones.

The lights were not to hard to install, but three had broken lights and covers and had to be returned.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jski Great light and great value !
The lights are lighter in weight (which is a good thing) than the older fluorescent fixtures it replaced. Wiring it in was very easy, as long as you have some knowledge about electrical work. It is not a plug in product, you have to hardwire it in to an electrical box. The lights come on instantly and are a very bright white light. A couple of the light tubes took a short while to obtain a full white color when I initially turned it on for the first time. But it has not been a problem since.

Exactly what you'd expect for a troffer light. Installation is brainless and the unit is sturdy enough to tolerate tight installations. Bulb color is good, although a couple of the units required an extended warm up period before the entire fixture was fully lit. We purchase a couple of these a month in an effort to replace all fixtures in our office (total of about 22 lights) and I'm still buying them after replacing the first 12.
