My old shop had florescent lights they flickered, hummed, and generally was annoying. When I moved to my new shop about 5 years ago I put up all LED lights. I am still using those original fixtures and have no problems with any of them. Some have been on for 5 years because I dont like to walk into a dark shop. The price of the LED fixtures and/or bulbs has really gone down. I originally paid about $50.00 per fixture five years ago and now they are down to between $25-30.00 apiece. I would not want fluorescent in my shop due to the fact that the LEDs are brighter, cheaper to run and make no noise at all.
