Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wally An odd secondary effect
I installed this new ballast in a 13-year old double-tube 8 ft. shop fluorescent fixture in Nov. 2013. It works just fine, but since installing it, whenever I turn on my shop lights a small portable lamp upstairs spontaneously turns on. This lamp is the kind designed to turn on when you touch the metal switch body, and it is on a different wiring circuit from the shop. I have no idea why this happens, but it does sometimes remind me that the shop lights are turned on!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BR3J2 Working well in the short term
So far so good...bright, quiet, and flicker free. We installed 6 of these in our shop replacing some of the old-school magnetic ballasts that had quit working. Yes T12 bulbs are virtually obsolete but it's going to be a monumental and expensive task to modernize the lighting in this 1973 building so for now we're still replacing ballasts as they go out. At least we should see a little savings from the more efficient ballasts. I just wish they were parallel wired so you know which bulb to replace.

Available in store, that means a lot to me. I went to three other Lowes and not stocked or out of stock. Lowes wanted to sale me the whole fixture instead of keeping parts for replacement. Thanks for the good service at Home Depot

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PatsPOV worked well for me
I put this in an old 8' 2 lamp florescent fixture. The wiring was a little different then the old connections but it was easy to figure out how to connect the new wiring.
It was a little easier then replacing the whole fixture.
I didn't notice any humming and the light did start up quickly.
