What I liked?

I like the LED T5 Integrated Single Fixture by Barrina for the super bright light it provides by consuming only 20W power and saves up to 65% electricity to produce 2200 lumens light. Another thing I liked was its extendable design which allowed me to use its connector cord or connectors to connect up to 8 lights together.

It is a perfect tube light for your storage area, garage, basement, workbench, general lighting in the office and under the cabinet in the home.

What I do not like?

Though this T5 LED provides super bright light still I am not satisfied with its mounting metal clips as they are just waste of money. It should have a mounting tab on both of its ends to mount it easily. Though it is nice looking and lightweight but it cannot be used in an office or communication center as it creates noisy sounds.

Pros:

Super bright light
Compact design
Power Saver

Cons:

Unsatisfactory mounting clips

Noisy sounds

It can be used perfectly in various applications including storage area, garage, basement, workbench, under the cabinet and in the office. It is backed by an unlimited warranty for 3 years and for any problem it in its quality you can replace it quickly and easily.

What I do not like?

What I did not like about this T5 LED tube is its improper length. It is 46” long instead of 48” or 4 feet. Its mounting clips also broke while installing it. I had to bring additional clips for completing its installation.

You have to use sticks to the light while unwrapping them as the wrap has shrunk due to heat in the shipping containers which made it hard to unwrap it. The power cord on one of the lights was bad. It should include coupling to connect together the 20” long cords. 20” is the insufficient length of cord as it needs a longer cable to connect them.

Pros:

Super bright light
Pack of 6 + 4 tubes
Extendable lighting system

Cons:

Improper size

Blow standard installation clips

What I liked?

Along with the daylight glowing light of this integrated Single Fixture I liked the most is its power saving feature which instantly saves up to 60% bill of power consumption when replaced with other T5 LED tubes that consume up to 54W power.

It is an ideal lighting fixture for shops. The lifespan of these tubes is almost 21 years or 45,000 hours is used or 6 hours per day which means you need not to replace your bulbs frequently. The brightness of the light of this tune is 100 lm/watt, which is the best in its class. It can be used instantly due to its plug-and-play design.

You can turn on its built-in switch just by inserting its cord into the plug. Its quality is backed by an unlimited warranty for 5 years and can be replaced easily for any manufacturing defect.

What I do not like?

What I did not like about this T5 LED tube is its wrong advertisement to provide as bright light as that of T5 consuming 54W power. Its light is less bright than as claimed.

Though it saves power consumption due to consuming only 22W as compared to 54W but it also provides much less bright light than the later one. Moreover, the hardware used in it is flimsy and cheap. The connecting cords are useless due to their shorter length.

Pros:

Daylight glowing light
Saves up to 60% power bills
Easy to install and use

Cons:

Insufficient light
The hardware of poor quality
Shorter connecting cords

What I liked?

I liked the cool-touch design of this 12” long light bar as it can perfectly brighten the cabinet to do some important task or to change the mood of your room. Its illumination is great to illuminate your counter space or the dark kitchen. Multiple light fixtures, up to 75, can be linked together to enlighten additional surface.

The cool-touch and ultra-slim design of this light fixture is unique in its class as it is different from all other traditional lights used for this purpose. It is easy to install under the shelves or cabinet it requires 120V 60 Hz 4 W power to illuminate your cabinet just by operating its in-built on/off switch.

What I do not like?

The total length of both of these LED tubes is 2” more than the actual length expected from it, which makes it useless for my space under the cabinet. They have provided only one power cord to connect both the tubes to use them at one spot only. But if I have to use them separately then I will have to buy an additional cord for it.

Pros:

Ultra slim cool-touch design

Cons:

Single cord to connect both the tubes

Total length is more than expected
