Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lightman Needs mounting hardware
I replaced another flushmount fluorescent fixture with this one. The mounting holes on the base of this fixture were too wide to match up with the standard width of the fixture I replaced. Luckily, I had mounting hardware from other ceiling fixtures I had removed, and screws of the right size and length, that allowed me to adapt this fixture to fit a standard box.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brandywhine Choose Something Else
Bought this to light a lower level family room. It was quite bright, and looked very nice. In less than a year it began lose its brightness and then abruptly wouldn't work. It gave off a smell (more like ozone than a bad ballast) but we couldn't believe it could be the fixture, so we bought replacement bulbs. When we removed the cover, the used bulbs were noticibly tinged brown and so was the center of the fixture. Replacement bulbs did not work. Came to this site to see if anyone else had a problem .. the fixture is coming off my ceiling and going back to Home Depot tomorrow... with print copies of these reviews. It was pretty before it was pretty awful. My advice: Make another choice.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Worked for less than a year
Product was very nice, gave off great lighting and good looking too. THEN it just died... I went to turn it on one day and it wouldn't come on. So I checked the fuse box, everything was ok there. I tried a different light switch, that did nothing. So then I went to the HD and bought new bulbs, that didn't work. So luckily I saved our old fixture that this one replaced, hooked that up and it worked. I know we owned this new one for less than a year and didn't know if the HD would take it back. Well they did and it was easier than I anticipated. No questions really. Just told me to go get a new one, I said I didn't want the same one, they said that's ok. So we got a different light and were happy now.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by goth Good fixture for a low ceiling room
This fixture - we bought four of them - works very well in a low ceiling room, which is what we have. It is not very deep, provides excellent light and was a snap to install. Only gripe, Home Depot no longer gives the 5% discount when you use your H.D. card and we could have used that on a nearly $200.00 purchase.
Other similar stores are not so shortsighted.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Axekick Bright, Attractive, Low profile Light
This fixture puts out far more light that I was expecting using the included Two bulbs.
Installation is straight forward and easy. There are three retaining clips that rotate to hold the diffuser in place but that much is obvious once you begin instlaling it.
I would recommend this for anyone needing ample lighting and to whom the design is appealing. Note that the the ratings are all 5-star except for one person who claims it was too large for their intended purpose and another having issues with the diffuser staying in place.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kkalle Diffuser falls off. Has major product design issues
The light was easy to assemble, and all appeared to be working well. After a couple of years both (I bought 2) diffusers just fell off without even being touched and broke. There are no replacement parts available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marsbar Ballast tle54 by energy pro gave out after a year, and home depot doesn't carry it.
Love the light, but the ballast gave out after a year and home depot doesn't carry it. Found one on line for 25.00 before shipping and handling. I will just buy the light instead. Really not happy about this at all. Hope improvements will be made in parts availability. Would be better if the quality of the ballast improved. It should really last as long as the bulbs which are good for years and years.
