The bulb and housing can be purchased at home depot for about $35.00, I use them with great success actually, only had one burn out in the last few months and HD replaced it no questions asked with a smile.
Heh, now an enterpising person might just figure out that the fixture with ballast and socket lends itself quite readily to a retrofit with a real reflector, and just store the housing in the box in a closet, if you have any problems with it, just a quick reassemble and back to the store during the 1 year warranty period.
Oh yeah, the light is rated at 4550 lumens, 6500K, 82 CRI
