Works great for my work bench! This light is meant for hard wiring and does not have a supplied cord. If you HAVE to have one that you want to plug in or if you don't have very basic electrical skills, get a different one with a cord. I used an old lamp cord which was no problem.

Although most lighting that I purchase for use at home or in our rental is LED, the LED version of this GE Advantage fixture is much more expensive than this older fluorescent design. In 2017, I selected this fixture to replace an existing 19 year old fluorescent light in the rental which had failed. I liked the Advantage because it perfectly occupied the space of the previous fixture, its price was cheap, and it appeared to be very durable. I did not like the color temperature of the included T8 fluorescent tube (warm 3000K-3500K) because it clashed with a warm white light (4000K) from an LED strip over the kitchen sink. Thus, I replaced the warm T8 tube with warm white (4100K) T8 tube. Unfortunately, the new fixture only lasted 1.5 years before its ballast failed! I just bought a replacement Advantage for the same reasons as before and am hoping that this one will last many years like the original light. If not, then I would re-rate this product as a "penny-wise, pound-foolish" investment!

these are just standard lighting. I was going to get one of the 13 dollar ge lights that is also a 18 inch t8, they are made of plastic and come with a cord. this is made of metal but does not have its own cord. I expected it would have a heavy duty universal ballast like commercial or professional lights I have purchased in the past, but no it just has a simple cheap one in a plastic case in the light fixture. the only difference between this and the plastic fixtures ge makes is this has a metal case. the store inventory said they had 3 of the plastic fixtures in stock . but when they could not find any, they sold me this one for the same price. lucky I have extension cords I sacrifice as replacement lamp cords, to wire in a plug for it. how ever I would not pay 20 dollars for this fixture as I have gotten commercial light fixtures for that price with a quality ballast. this is why I am only going to give it 2 stars and when I do need to get some more 24 inch light fixtures I'm not getting ge advantage, I'm going back to the commercial fixtures I got in the past. glad I got this one by mistake so to speak before getting a ge 24 inch advantage.

Bought this to replace a halogen 3 light track light and love it. In less than a week the track light had one of the 3 bulbs burned out. So hot I was afraid it would melt my coffee pot so it had to do. I was uneasy with the amount of heat it gave and it had to go. I chose this light and it is soooooo much better. It has sturdy metal chassis and plenty of light. Light is spread evenly under my counter. This one came with the bulb so that made price even better. Rocker switch is great. The design is simple and sleek. I did not hardwire. I bought a good quality 8 foot 3 prong extension cord from HD. I cut the cut the extension part off, wired in into the light and ran it through the cabinet and out the side to plug in behind my fridge. A lot cheaper than calling an electrician to hardwire it. I could not be more pleased with the outcome. This light would be great under cabinets, in a pantry, a work bench, in a closet or anywhere you need a good bright wide span of light. It does not run hot so it is not a fire hazard. No hum or noise to deal with. I love it.

We considered more expensive choices that were recommended to us but felt these would light our kitchen counters adequately. We are quite pleased how they lighten the dark granite and dark tile back splash and bring out the colors in the tile. We enjoy the pleasing lighting they bring to the counter areas. My husband had no problem installing them, though he does know how to do electrical wiring.

The overhead lighting in my kitchen is insufficient, so I bought these fixtures to install under the upper cabinets. They provide good lighting for the countertops. Not being do-it-yourselfers, we had to have them professionally installed.
