Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by aaronj Unacceptable for home or office
This ballast will light T8 bulbs brightly, but carries a warning that it should not be used for residential uses.
Also, wherever it is used it will interfere with radio reception, causing a static buzz. For me this is unacceptable for my home, the studio where I work, and garage. Even battery-operated radios are affected.
The GE Ballast toll-free line was equally disappointing. After listening to GE ads for twenty minutes, I spoke to a polite representative who had to put me on hold again to look up information on ballasts.
High marks to Home Depot though! I bought this product from a hardware store closer to my home. After returning it, I found the Philips residential product was featured at Home Depot. Half the price and it works perfectly!

The product is not rated for consumer use. It caused interference to my television every time it turned the light on.

To change an electronic ballast you do need some basic electrician skills.
