The end caps with the tube sockets barely hold on to the main body that is mounted under the counter. It took me three attempts to install the tubes without the end caps falling off. I'm afraid to touch the fixture at this point for fear of the whole thing falling apart again.

Provides bright light using LED's - Installation was easy - this was my second purchase and am pleased.

We've renovated two houses over the past several years. Wherever we needed basic fluorescent utility lighting (garages, basements) we've ended up trying Lithonia, because that's what they sell at Home Depot. Having bought about a dozen Lithonia fixtures over the years, I'd say about 50% come out of the box missing parts - screws, wire nuts, other things - and about 80% are just really badly made - knockouts don't actually knock out, wires just break off, or the fixture just comes apart in my hands. Literally.
Cheap can be useful or useless. Lithonia is more often than not useless. Save yourself time and frustration - don't use these.

Works well, but you have to provide and attach your own power cord or wire it in permanently.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BeRosy Pretty much junk, but working so far
Bought and installed yesterday evening. Completely caved in the end of the fixture trying to knock out the knockout. Much, much lower quality than the Lithonia T12 fixture from the 1970s that I was replacing. But after a lot of fiddling and un-bending I did get it installed and working. I used a plastic snap-in cable clamp on an end knockout, and it fit with zero clearance. I can see why a metal one wouldn't fit at all. Also would have been nice if it had come with a couple mounting screws, but it didn't. Now I just hope it keeps working more than 25 days.

Yes, for the price this is an excellent product. Small and compact but gives off plenty of light for my needs.

As mentioned by others the knock-outs are poorly stamped and very difficult to remove. You WILL have to bend the tombstone back into shape to use it. You will then discover there isn't room for the lock nut if you use a metal NM connector. Only after significant bending, prying, adjusting and cursing did I manage to get the fixture to fit back together. I would have tried a plastic NM connector if I had one at the time. After all that I was able to use it for 2 weeks and then It started to trip the GFCI receptacle it was plugged into.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Good basic lighting for basement/garage
Installed a dozen of these in my basement & garage, very happy overall. Lots of light from a small package, good color temp, no flickers. Relatively easy to install if you know your way around a screw gun and wire strippers.
Now the complaints: instructions are packed inside the unit, and I damaged my first one a little figuring out how to open it. It's obvious once you've done it once, but a little more guidance might be good. The fittings are a little loose and easy to bend, which can leave you with bulbs that don't quite contact - easy to fix, but annoying. The knockouts on the ends are nearly impossible to remove without bending the tombstones, so if you want to mount these right up against a joist or stud, you'll have to deal with bending them back into shape after removing the knockout.
