Beware of Hampton Bay fixtures

Just a heads up when buying Hampton Bay light fixtures at Home Depot---some of their flourescent ones use bulbs that they don't stock and some have non-replaceable ballasts.My original ballast lasted only 3 months and this 6 month old other fixture,the bulb went out,not only can't Home Depot get it,but no other contractor type electrical lighting shop can either.All I got from the store mgr. at Depot was a very sad apology--nothing he could do.
