Overall I am happy with this product's operation and the brightness of the modern T8 lights. However, the frame is quite thin and lightweight and can be easily bent on the ends if you aren't careful. The "snap-on" bottom plate can be tricky to secure properly because you have to perfectly align it at all four corners to make it fit right. If one of the plate's thin lip ends comes from the factory bent just slightly, the plate won't fit right and you have to bend it into alignment with pliers, by trial and error. To improve this product, there should be one machine screw added at each end of the bottom plate so that it could be secured to the frame without risk of popping off if it didn't snap on perfectly. The old unit I replaced with this product had that feature in addition to the snap-on.
Pros: Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Very Bright, Nice Design
Cons: very thin frame

It's very hard to find a 40-watt fluorescent light fixture so I was very happy to buy this one.

It does what I wanted (provide a basic 40-watt light). It looks good and works very well. Nearly all the light fixtures use two 40-watt bulbs, which is much more than I need, so I was very happy to find a fixture that uses a single bulb.
Pros: High Quality of Material, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great, Very Bright, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
