IMO, quantity beats quality when it comes to lighting. Or at the very least, quantity can overcome quality in most cases.
I have two flourescent fixtures that each hold four 36”(?) bulbs. I only have about a 10X10 area to illuminate. I’m pretty sure I’m getting a good dose of UV every time I enter my shop. But there are virtually no shadows and the visability is great.

I’m actually moving to a new house next month and will have to set-up a new shop in the garage. I’ll probably stick with the 36” flourescent fixtures for general shop space. But I have a cheap track lighting set-up that I’ll likely hang over my bench.
