These are easy to use and a very nice low profile option for hidden under-counter lighting.

T5 Microfluorescent Fixture

Submitted by |

The T5's are nice low profile and affordable fixture. The only reason I did not rate them 5 stars is that I have had ongoing problems with the 12in fixtures when connecting them together via the connection pin (male/female) provided with the fixtures. The ongoing issue has been early blowout of the bulbs (within months) when the units are connected. To the credit of Pegasus, they have been working with me to provide replacement fixtures, assuming the original fixtures may have been defective.

Not for jewelry cases

Submitted by |

I ordered this in hopes it would be a good answer to lighting horizontal jewelry cases. The light is too dim and I don't think fluorescents are an option in this kind of situation. Don't even waste your time trying.

Nice metal construction; often takes 1 second to start; slightest hum

Submitted by |

I purchased this fixture to replace an old one (T12) in my bedroom closet. I like the metal frame. The light is nice and bright. I was surprised that it often takes about a second to turn on. I definitely expected better. It has a very slight hum that is nearly imperceptible. Most humans won't notice it at all. I'm very sensitive to everything. I wouldn't want it next to my bed but it's absolutely fabulous in the closet.

Pros:
I like the metal frame.

Cons:
I was surprised that it often takes about a second to turn on; I definitely expected better.

Terrific Craft Light

Submitted by |

Purchased the 35 watt T5 Grounded Light Fixture with Daylight bulbs. My wife loves it for her gemstone crafting activities; bright light, and hassle free installation. Excellent packaging on fixture and bulbs - couldn't believe how well the items were packed. Just excellent. And I am a repeat customer.

Pros:

Cons:
wish there was a way to switch the power cord to the end away from the switch end.

Nice, compact light

Submitted by |

Purchased a few of these as test lights for basement lighting. I like the extremely small size while still being very bright. Of course, that combination can create an oddly strong light source that catches the eye... but that's just the nature of a small yet bright combination.

Pros:
Super small size. Cord made it easy to plug in and test mounting locations and spacing before committing.

Cons:

Was this review helpful? YesNo

Excellent product

Submitted by |

Excellent product that exceeded expectations. Installed easily. Only comment is that cords came with all 6 units that I installed 3 to a line so am left with 4 un-needed cords. A waste.

Excellent compact light

Submitted by |

This is my second purchase of this particular light. The first one, now about two years old, continues to work fine and casts a clear bright white light. Both lights are under-cabinet lighting. One, whose light is largely contained within an alcove, produces especially good lighting. The other, mounted under a kitchen cabinet, produces a brighter pool than is ideal for one spot. I might have been better off buying two smaller lights and chaining them together with a cable, thereby spreading the same amount of light over a larger area and lowering the intensity of the brightest points. Make sure you mount the lights where you will not see the bulb.

Pros:
Very thin and very bright. So far, reliable. The color of the cool white bulb is very pleasing.

Cons:
The mounting brackets, though pleasantly small, look a bit industrial and aren't comfortable to grasp.

Limited life

Submitted by |

Owned a unit for only 15 months before the ballast went bad and the bulb started flickering. Have several others of same and longer sizes that are fine. Product seems OK as I ordered another of the same size as a replacement. Time will tell if there are consistent quality issues.

Pros:
Size and light output

Cons:
Disappointed at having to replace a unit so early in its life.

Was this review helpful? YesNo

Everything I expected.

Submitted by |

The product arrived in a timely manner having been well advised by Pegasus as to its shipping status. The product fully met expectations when received.

Pros:
Light and easy to use

Cons:
After it has been used for a few years it becomes very fragile and easily breaks.

Micro T5 lights

Submitted by |

Order the 46in fluorescent lights. I ordered them as bright as I could and they haven't disappointed me. They are bright plus smaller than I thought. They appear to be well designed. Sleek and Trim. 4 stars until I can attest to longevity.

Pros:
sleek, trim and bright

Cons:
I thought it was coming with a 6in cable to connect them together. However, I didn't need them.

purchased 2 21 watt fixtures and one 6 watt (12in) fixture. Some issues with the smaller one, but have not called the company about it yet. Other than this, hook up is simple and easy, choice of bulb is great, very happy with my order.

Great lamp for my application

Submitted by |

I needed 110v fluorescent lamps for my bus with limited space for installation. The lamps installed easily and work very well

Pros:
Lamps are easy to install Provide quite a bit of light for such a small lamp

Cons:
The screws for installation were of very poor quality. I sheared one off in sheetmetal with an ordinary screwdriver

Ask a Question

Question from Richard Brugger:

My T5 58in light started to slightly flicker at times. Do I need a new light or a new bulb?

Answer from Pegasus:

Richard: Below are some common reasons for lamp flickering: Loose wire connections. Examine all wire connections to be sure they are secure. Check the lamp for any darkened area's around the end portions. Dark areas indicate the lamp is failing and could produce a very slight flicker. Flickering can also occur when the lamp is not completely locked into the socket(s). Check this by turning the lamp clockwise in the sockets until you feel or hear a slight click. The click generally indicates the lamp is now securely locked in the socket. If the flicker still persists then perhaps the lamp is failing and you might want to replace it. If the new lamp flickers then the ballast is probably failing.

Question from Stephanie:

I would like to install this fixture underneath a floating shelf in such a way that the back edge of the fixture would be nearly flush with the edge of the shelf so as to light a piece of art on the wall beneath the shelf - in other words, so that the light faces the wall. Is there any (elegant) way to mount the fixture on its side instead of its back? Thank you in advance!

Answer from Pegasus:

Stephanie, there are two mounting options. The first is the included standard mounting clips. We have a second type of mounting clips that may help with your installation - http://www.pegasuslighting.com/mounting-clip-psgmcvh.html

Question from Judith:

Is this fixture dimmable? If not, do you have one that is?

Answer from Pegasus:

Judith, Most fluorescent light fixtures, including this one, are not dimmable. Here's a link to similar products that are dimmable. http://www.pegasuslighting.com/under-cabinet-lighting-dimmable.html

Question from TNY:

Can I attach 2 different sizes together, for example the 8 watt with the 21 watt fixtures?

Answer from Pegasus:

Yes, the fixtures can link together using flexible connectors or direct connectors.
