    new shop- lighting - Was recommended to use 2x2 troffers

    Building the new shop (will post a pictorial of it all as I get a few extra minutes), but designing the lighting needs now, and need to get it decided and ordered pretty soon.Will have 10' ceilings and was hoping to install numerous lights to achieve a professional looking and very well lit shop.Hoping to surface mount them or?, through out 40' x 24' section of shop, to ensure no shadows.
    Was recommended to use 2 x 2 LED troffers/flat panel LEDs. I'm not really interested in using florescent, and I say that only because I've done that and I always regretted it eventually, always not liking something about them, either replacing the bulbs, or usually the ballast issues that always ended up either humming, intermittently blinking, or just not coming on. If there's truly another option that will work without having any of these issues, I'm surely all ears. Just not trying to go on the cheap after spending already too much for a good looking and extremely functional shop.

    Can anyone provide input that has gone this route, what they liked, what they didn't like, how many many needed for this size shop... and where might be best source for quality but not bank breaking Troffers/Flat panels, or other quality but affordable options??

    TIA, appreciate the input!!!
