The good: Bright lighting, nice color temperature for the application, quiet and efficient. I used one of these to replace two 8-ft double fluorescent fixtures in my garage workshop and still have plenty of light. Base detaches from tubes and internal wiring uses plugs, so it was easy to mount to the bottom of a ceiling joist. Even though it's 8 feet long, I was able to mount them by myself with the help of some strategically placed bungee cords to position it while screwing it down. Plenty of room for wiring to fit.
The bad: Somewhat flimsy construction resulting in some of the plastic pop-rivets breaking off during the assembly process. The "tubes" were not aligned well, so it was hard to snap them back into the base after mounting. One of the internal LED strips seems to be out of position inside the plastic tube.
Two points I would make about this product. Directions were not as complete as they could be. I had never replaced an old fluorescent fixture and the directions were not clear about unplugging the mini-jack to allow for the connection of the ceiling half of the fixture. Also extremely bright light which should work well in this walk-in closet but do wish they had a natural light option.
Bought three of these for my shop (30ft wide) assuming i would need them all for light over my workbench.. Two hung at 8' off the floor did the trick -- going to use the last one in my wife's "She Shed" for her quilting area work lighting..

This has all the makings of a great light.
Unfortunately the one I purchased came with a quality control issue. Only one of the two LED strips lit up when it was installation was finished.
Upon further investigation (see enclosed photo) one of the wires that was inserted into a connector had never been stripped (See blue wire, with silver and copper next to it). With the insulation still on the wire it would not get power.
The connectors that were use are one-time use and not repairable.
I got this for a small space in my laundry room. It is a perfect fit in 4 by 12 room. The only thing wrong is one of the end covers were missing but it is not noticeable. good little light, easy to install. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I really like this light since it’s bright and portable. The light is in our den since there is no overhead light and it lights the room really good. It will be going to the back porch this summer when we have company over. The light is lightweight and can be used with a plug. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
