The bottom lamp in this fixture looks like it doesn't have a good fit. You can see the pins in a space between the end cap and the lamp holder. I've seen situations like this where it shortens lamp life.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

Yeah, these CFI wrap fixtures are great but the way they make sockets fit in is pretty cheap, a piece of steel from the body is all that holds them in and to replace the socket you have to bend it a little and slide the socket out sideways. but they fit T8s pretty good without the space

Is the ballast magnetic?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
