Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby Electronic ballast review
I have a number of 8 foot 2-bulb florescent fixtures in my basement workshop with the old style magnetic ballasts. The bulbs were beginning to go out but wouldn't restart with new bulbs so I assumed the ballasts were going bad. I purchased one of these electronic ballasts & replaced a non-operating one. It worked great & the old bulbs started immediately. Other than the inconvenience of working on a short ladder swapping the ballasts was easy, even for a novice electrician such as myself. The included instructions were easy to read & understand but CAUTION - read & understand the wiring instructions clearly because the wiring connection for the new electronic ballast is different from the old magnetic ballast wiring. Its not quite a 'match the identical colored wires' effort. But the exchange was so easy on the initial fixture that I bought 4 more to replace the magnetic ballasts in the remaining fixtures. Now the lights come on instantly & there is NO hum noise from the fixtures. The results were so satisfying I'm planning on replacing some other magnetic ballasts.

I installed this ballast per the instructions and check all of other ballasts it replaces. The ballast work great for 1 day. When the triennial the lights on the next morning nothing worked. I will take the light apart again to get this returned. Very disappointed on the ballast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Great ballast, a little pricey.
Good ballast, easy to install, lighter than the old one and starts quicker than the old one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrFreeze Worked perfect !!
Worked perfect for my twin 96" T12-75 watt shop fixture in the garage.
Just be sure to follow the wiring diagram if you have an old style ballast as it does make a difference how the tombstones wire up. The new GE is electronic ( much lighter and smaller in size ) and didn't mount perfectly in the spot the original ballast mounted. Again no big deal, just be prepared to drill in a zip screw on one end of the ballast mounting tab to secure it.
