Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BobSmith Pretty but not lasting
I bought two to do a remodel covering 12" square recessed fixtures, Purchased Jul 2014, installed several months later, one has been going off and later coming on. Missed the "warranty" by a month. May rewire it with something else in LED. Disappointed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leggz Worked until it didn't
When I bought my new home this fixture was already installed. I raved about how the bulb lasted for well over 2 years. And then it just stopped. No flickering. No warning. No nothing. The light just stopped working. Purchased 2 replacement bulbs from home depot (which only sells them near this fixture and not with the other light bulbs). Didn't work. So then I went to Lowes (they don't carry them). Long story short - 3 bulbs, 3 car trips, and a series of circuit breaker trips later, I decided this fixture was just dead.
Wish I had read the review earlier about the ballast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Cheaper to replace and fix
Bought nearly four years ago this month. Was great over the dining room table (basic, clean, decent light). Went on the fritz last week and as others have said, if its the bulb or the ballast its nearly as much to buy new from HD than to replace the ballast ($40 shipped). So I will be going back to HD and see if I get a great manager to help me out and replace it or I'll just trash it and find a new fixture to replace it. Lithonia really? Such a specific hard to find bulb and insane ballast? How do they make money on these?!?!?!?!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed Hideous light color 2700K is YELLOW! Shifts all colors in the room.
Installed OK, but the light color of 2700K is hideous and dim, even with 2600 lumens. The lamp color should be much more prominent on the packaging. If it had been, I never would have purchased these to begin with. Most fluorescents are a cooler color, especially in the circline offerings, which was the expectation. Also, while it's described as "instant on" it takes several minutes to brighten to full light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AllanG Light fixture performance
Looks great but the ballast goes out quickly and the replacement is about $24 and not available at Home Depot. So it is a throw away fixture.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Bad Ballast after 6 months
The ballast died after 6 months. A replacement costs $20+, and a new fixture is only $29.....Lithonia Lighting needs to fix this problem, because from reviews this has been an issue with these lights for quite some time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HiredHandyman Attractive with ballast issues and expensive bulb
I actually like the light and the color is prettier than this one. The bulbs are expensive...approx $10 if memory serves. The lighting is great but the ballast is as expensive as the actual product and not sold at the store. The ballast has been changed once in 2 years and needs to be replaced again. If you're paying to have an electrician take care of this it's not worth it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by charger61 Seldom used and only a couple months old the ballast blew
Same as others. Thought the bulb was out and bought a new one. Not a cheap bulb. Who would have thought the ballast on a brand new light would fail that quick. Very Disappointing!!
