Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LakeJodecowoodworkers THe right light for a shop with no windows
Need a very bright light for this application and this light certainly does it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Very compact, inexpensive, and they put out a lot of light
I installed two of these in my garage about 18 months ago, one in my attic about 6 months ago, and two in my friend's garage recently. They're inexpensive and you can tell the ballasts are not real beefy, but for their price point they look good and put out quite a bit of light. All have held up well so far. I haven't had to change the bulbs yet, but you have to be careful because they sell T5 replacement bulbs in the store that will fit but that exceed the wattage rating for these fixtures.
Note also that the boxes they come in are not sealed, so when you're in the store I recommend examining them for damage or missing parts (as you should when buying anything.)

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G8tor Very nice utility light fixture
The light fixture is just what it is made out to be a utility light fixture. Not pretty, but functional. In our case we installed two for kitchen lighting and they are hidden under a plastic diffuser panel. The installation was pretty easy. The only negative for these light fixtures was, one of the knockout covers for threading the power into the body would not come off. And as such my power line would not reach to connect with the wires inside the fixture body. As I was putting two fixtures up, I was able to swap the location of the fixtures (the second fixture’s knockout worked fine) and install the lights that way. The lights are working great and saving me money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gmu141 Good light for the price
This fixture was very easy to install, I am very impressed with the very slim profile. There is a delay when you flip the light switch, which is a bit annoying. The tubes are open, which is why i purchased, but keep that in mind if there is a threat of them being hit. The cold garage where it is located doesn't seem to affect the performance. This fixture came with soft white lamps. However, I prefer the bright white. Overall satisfied with quality and performance.

Nice fixtures only down side is ballast will go in about 5yr time and a replacement ballast cost almost as much as the fixture itself

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by whc95125 Inspite of Quality issues I love these Lamps
I purchased over 40 of these units for my company to relamp our assembly and office / lab spaces. The old 4 and 8ft T12 type fixtures were due to be replaced and these T5 types were easily integrated in their place... WOW by light meter measurement we have more than twice the illumination and the cost to operate is at least 2/3 less based on the power bill for the three suites. I do have to say that this is all great but not without cost or effort, out of the 40+ units purchased, 2 died within a day or were DOA out of the box due to bad ballasts, 6 died within a week due to bad ballasts and over the last 6 months another 6 have failed, Currently we have another 6 to be replaced.... not sure why but as long as they honor the warranty the power savings and high illumination factor make up for it to some degree.
