    I know this topic has been discussed, but came across this today and was impressed. A garage with a couple of these would be pretty well lit!

    They do look like nice lights. But man the price is over the top at $439.

    Looks good but I would put more cheaper one and save money. It takes a long time to save the differences in electric bills.

    It is a nice light. But I wouldn’t spend that much on garage lighting.

    To steep for my blood, I have high output fluorescent in my garage, they do well. In my shop, I have 100 watt CFL’s on an 8 x 6 grid. I can light up the whole place for about 600 watts and it is plenty bright.

    Gee whiz it’s only 2ft long, I expected more for the money but them dang LEDs are so hard to predict. It says one of these per bay, Could it really light up an entire bay? I’d really like to see one, Although it’s listed as 120v I wonder what it actually takes. If it’s reduced? I’d be very interested in it if it was reduced/converted to 12v, That would be one nice light for my trailer

    At $400 a pop you could buy a bunch of fluorescent fixtures for that money. Will it light a whole bay, I sure would like to see a video first.

    That’s kind of spendy! Serious light output though… 13,000 lumens is no joke!

    Money better spent on t-5’s.

    Could probably put up to of this light for half the price and have more than enough light. They are 4000 lumens ea.

    I’d like to try an LED fixture just to see if they are worth the money. Wish my HD or Lowes had one lit up so I could compare.

    I helped swap out all the main lights at a local truck stop to LED. The owners have said they paid for there self in 9 months time. And now have brighter lights.

    For a large area with a bunch of lights I can definitely see the savings in an electric bill. For just a few lights in a garage not so much. I am interested in though in getting more lumens out of a the same size light as a 4ft fluorescent.

    I would like to know if the bulbs yellow, or I guess how well they survive in a shop environment. My T8 bulbs need replacement about every 18 months or so if you want to keep them in top shape. They lose brightness and the glass becomes stained in my shop environment.

    These are open to atmosphere. No covers.

    “One light recommended per garage bay”

    Ya right, if there is nothing in the bay. You need lights all around you to get rid of shadows. I does no good to have the brightest light at your back when you are trying to work on something.

    Yer right about them yellowing, I was so surprised last year of the difference when I had to replace a couple tubes. At first I thought I bought different type of bulbs or something but I didn’t, I’ve since been changing them out before they even need it. Big difference

    For $400, it better do more than just provide light.

    I am not a pro. But I play one at home.

    Guess the yellowing kinda creeps up on you. I have some pretty old tubes, guess I’ll check them out.
