The ventilation holes let your growing fixture to cool off and that means longer life for your 2 feet t5 grow lights as they work better in cooler conditions.
But the even light spread means that the light diffusion is very good and there is very little chance of having hot spots where the plants get more intense light and therefore grow bigger than others and your garden isn’t uniform anymore.
