Bought this at Home Depot not long ago simply because it was T12. I'm surprised these are still even a thing, but they are one of my favorite fixture types. The ballasts are modern electronic ones of course, here again I'm shocked they're designed for T12s.

I've never even so much as opened this thing. I should really go buy a bunch more of these while I still can- part of my shop and my shop attic still needs lights, why not these? Probably suspend them all...

I'm not expecting much out of these ballasts. The display one, next to lots of T5 and T8 and LED fixtures, wasn't particularly bright. I have a couple older full power HPF rapid start ballasts and could get nicer tombstone sockets though. Lowes has the Metalux version of these, maybe I should buy a few of those as well. When I'm not broke, possibly about to dive headfirst into another hobby which will cause my lighting budget to be all but shot for awhile.

You've got a lot of outlets there that's nice. In my single room at school here I've got a few but none near the bed like that.

That looks a bit like the dado rail trunking that we're planning to put up above the desks in our home office. We want to put several power sockets, both direct from the mains and also a few fed from the UPS to power the computers. Also we're going to put in several Ethernet sockets to link the computer stuff back to the networking rack, a bit like this, although only one rail, not double height as this is.

Interesting to know! How is the Metalux version that Lowes sells?
