Rated 4 out of 5Â by streak Good for the price
Recently purchased 2 fixtures and am quite happy with them. They come with a three prong plug and a 5 foot good quality cord plus there is a three prong socket on each unit so that they can be ganged. Also there is a pull/pull on/off switch on each unit. You will have to buy your own tubes for the fixture though. I would have liked a reflective surface inside but it is simply painted grey. I lined the inside with Al foil and that seems to work fine.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by tcc13 Great light
Picked this up a while back to add more lighting to my dark garage. Really made a difference in brightening it up and now am able to work comfortably. Going to pick up another one as a replacement to make it even brighter. Although the chain seems "fragile", it does its job.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RDTSEWI Outstanding Product!
Purchased a lot of 'junk' lighting products at many DIY stores, finally a very good priced system that seems to be very high quality. Love the added outlet on the side of the light for chaining. Maybe upgrade the pull to chain, but that's it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Transplanted Perfect solution for my workshop.
After way too much research on shop lighting, I settled on this fixture. I had a 12'x16' workshop built and needed to install the lighting. I bought 4 of these units along with a case of Cool White bulbs. I installed the 4 fixtures into 2x4's running alongside the ceiling joists. I just screwed each unit into the 2x4's using 6 screws. Once I installed the bulbs and turned the lights on, I was pleasantly surprised, and relieved. Surprised at just how much light was thrown into my workshop, and relieved that the lighting was more than adequate and that the gray painted reflector did not appear to be an issue, as I was contemplating painting them white prior to hanging them. I'm sure if the reflectors were in fact white, that the light would be brighter, but from what's being thrown into my workshop now, I'm fine with it.
I agree with just about everyone on the quality of the throw in chains. They are really cheap looking and had I needed the chains to support the fixtures, I would have replaced them straightaway. I really love the protective cage. It swings down to change the bulbs and protects the bulbs from being whacked with a piece of wood. I also like the features of having a electronic ballast. The ballast means when you flip the switch, they instantly turn on...And no humming noise is emitted. These fixtures are great, I love them, and they totally fit the needs I've wanted in my workshop...Hands down.
