Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skip Ended up not needing it.
When I disassembled the ceiling light to install the new ballast, I found that my problem was a bad wire instead. However, the ballast would have fit perfectly and would have been very easy to install. Instructions were clear and understandable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by yogwood AMbistar fluorescent ballast
My old fluorescent fixture stopped working and it turned out the ballasts were at fault. I had 2 ballasts in my old fixture and I decided to replace them. I couldn't find any local store that carried it and so turned to HD. The ballasts came on time and I was able to install it based on directions I found on the web.
It took HD 10 days to get the product from their warehouse in OH to NJ. I don't understand why it takes so long, but outside that everything was as promised.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonF SO far so good!
After replacing all the tubes in my office the old magnetic ballast failed on one fixture. Bought and installed this ballast. Easy to install. Notice this fixture now lights instantly with absolutely no flicker - now I will replace the others one by one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rico001 Some Built a Better Ballast (finally)
I work in the Hotel / Motel , Condo Maintenance field and we are always replacing ballasts.
This is a newer Electronic Ballast and if you have ever had to change many of them on top of a 20 foot ladder you be be thankful for the smaller size and less weight the new ballasts have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gene Works Well
I had not replaced a ballast in a long time but found this to be relatively easy. Ballast was much smaller in volume than the one being replaced. However, length was the same so that it still fit in the original location. No modifications had to be made. Has worked well since installation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TCR Didn't work
This ballast was broken from the minute I installed it. Only one light worked dimly and the other worked even less. I took it back and then went and bought an OSRAM brand one from Lowe's which worked fine at installation. Watch out Ace Hardware also carries this common Sylvania brand too. You get what you pay for...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ronne Very good purchase
This was an item that should be installed by a professional. But was able to be done by my son following instructions on item and sales rep from store.
