Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overkill for 110 volt fixture This replaced a Ballast that ran old technology 40 watt bulbs. I don't why anyone would buy a ballast that can handle 277 volts for a 110 volt fixture. The HD employees directed me to this one. It works great, but I replaced it with a 110 volt ballast, also from Home Depot for about $6 less. This and any other electronic ballast supporting T8 tubes (32 watts) will also operate well down to 0 degrees F. Lamps in old magnetic ballasts will begin flickering at about 50 degrees or colder. Another impetus for upgrading your ballasts beyond the 20% energy savings, the T8 tubes will put as much or more light. Both the slip that comes with the ballast and the label on the ballast give a bare-bones installation explanation. January 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install - RFI may be a problem This ballast is extremely easy to install, having less wires to connect than most. If you can follow the wiring diagram printed on the case, you should have no problems. However, the instructions say that it is for commercial use only. That perplexed me, as normally a commercial rated product is better and suitable for residential use. A close inspection of the label yielded a probable answer: It's FCC RFI (radio frequency interference) ratings are rather high. I tested it with a AM radio and confirmed this. The RFI isn't dramatic; it's only near the fixture while listening to a weak station that it's evident. But the flaw causes me to give it only four stars. March 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GE 120-Volt Electronic Ballast Work's great easy to install had to find a replacement ballast because the one I had they no longer make and this one worked. December 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value I've been using these ballasts to replace old dead or dying T12 ballasts in my office. The upgrade to T8's is easy (sockets are the same). All you have to do is replace the ballast, which is the same length as older ballasts, but slimmer so they fit right in the same mount. The wiring is a little different, but the diagram is printed on the ballast itself. The huge plus to these is they are power factor corrected so the power consumption is as low as it can be, pay attention to the amp draw on the labels. The equivalent product with PF correction at a certain competitors store was 65% more expensive. February 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome! Awesome experience! It was my first time changing out a ballast and I was happy that I was capable of doing it myself. Thanks to homedepot who had the parts that was required! October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good replacement was purchased as a replacement for a defective GE unit. It worked well so no complaints. Recommend this product. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Electronic T8 Ballast Good Ballast, worked well. It was a little expensive. Should have been around 13 to 15 dollars rather than the 21 dollars I paid. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked like a charm. Replacement Ballast was a little larger in thickness than the one that was being replaced but it works fine. Wiring was a different as well. September 2, 2014
