Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Circline Ballast This is a solid replacement ballast for a fixture that uses circline fluorescent tubes. It can be paired with either 22w & 32w or 32w & 40w fc_t9 circline lamps. It is a magnetic rapid start ballast so it does flicker a few times when turned on. Can't speak for longevity but magnetic ballast are known to last 10+ years. It is warranted for two years. December 24, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works well. These ballasts seem to need to be replaced fairly often. June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install. Had an older ballast that needed replaced because it would not light the tubes. Replaced with this ballast and the tubes are glowing once again. Easy to install because the the tube plugs are already wired to the ballast. Just need to connect 120VAC power to the ballast. September 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Fine I had someone install the ballast for me, but it didn't take him anytime to do it. They worked just fine and my lights are back on in my kitchen. June 24, 2014
