The first ones I bought I disconnected the ballast,and wired the ends direct,by passing the ballast. Then the next bunch were just remove the old tube.and replace with new tubes.No rewiring. That works for me no having to remove the fixture, then put back up again. All mine have the white tube cover. I have seen the clear tube in use and it is too bright for me, the white cover seems to diffuse the light better, and I can keep the old fixture,cheaper too at around $8.50/tube off the internet, free delivery.

Bushwhacker, the whole fixture. Hang it and plug it in! So easy a caveman could do it! They are going on sale this coming Friday, Saturday, Sunday at $19.95 but coupons aren't honored. Going to get at least two more.

Got the shop light at Harbor Freight today; selling at $29.95 each. Plugged it in and it is bright! Might go back and get a couple more with my birthday money. Number is 64410.
Sams Club has cheap LED utility lights as well. The linkable's are great.

Going back for the sale tomorrow and get three more @$19.95. One HF store is closer than Chattanooga plus traffic is 500% better. Don't shop at Sam's or Walmart.

I replaced all fluorescent bulbs in my shop with LED's a few years ago and as stated before there is no more hum or flickering and they come on instantly as well as being twice as bright. I have never regretted doing it and would recommend that everybody make the conversion.

Everyone but me. I had a herpes infection on my right eye , and the excess blue light produced by led lights brings the virus out of remission very quickly .
Iím assuming itís the excess blue light, but it could be the nonexistent UV they claim they donít produce

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Put up two in the shop and it proved to be much brighter than I anticipated. No shadows in one end of the shop that was a problem. I was considering three but two does the job and eliminated the third light. Put the two in the basement to replace the fluorescent lights. One went over the desks in the office- don't need desk lamps.

You can get the warm white led bulbs they are not as bad. That might work for you.
