It gets a 5 if you have electrician knowledge but a 1 if you know nothing about electrical wiring. This fixture was hard to rate since it is clearly slanted towards the electrician/contractor rather than a typical do it yourselfer.
This is a bare bones fixture. It only contains the housing itself, the ballast, and the holders for the fluorescent tubes.
The lighting fixture connectors on each end rotate to make bulb installation easy which is a VERY VERY BIG plus. Other fixtures require you to gently twist and manipulate the bulb to install it. If you don’t have a gentle touch you can ruin the bulb or the fixture. That is not the case with this fixture. Installation of bulbs is very very easy.
It comes in a very Sturdy corrugated cardboard box. It is not likely to damage the fixture before you take it out of the box.
Screws for basic assembly are included.
Some things you need which are not included are 1) Three prong cord, 2) cable box connector 3) two T12 40W Bulbs. If you are using 14-2 WG house wire to connect it up instead of a 3 prong cord you will need a junction box, or, connect into an existing box.
Basic knowledge of electrical wiring such as: how to connect the neutral (white) wire, the hot (black) wire, and how to ground the box (green) wire. If an electrician were to install this fixture it would not be an issue, but the average do it yourselfer may need to turn to u-tube to get instructions on how to wire up an electrical fixture.
Pics include the fixture itself with the Three prong cord and the cable box connector installed.
Easy to Assemble, Functional, Good Size & Weight, very very easy to install fluorescent tubes

These units come without bulbs, switches and cords, which was okay for me, I just used what I had from my old fixtures. Wired them up and plugged them in and switched them on and they work real nice. A great value.
