I have read good things, and you can't argue with the price at all.

The issue is that, in looking at the 48" light itself:

You see the cord jutting out of the end. If the light is 48" long, then that cord isn't going to fit inside my canopy.

I just measured one of my 36" fixtures, it would need about 37.25" of space to include the cord. But, it would probably be fixed to only need about 36.25" if you took the plastic nut off and just taped up the cord.
