    Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent replacement, good price The fixtures were installed about 17 years ago and it seems that is about the life of the old ballasts. Several have gone within a short time. These replacements have worked well, gone in easily and when I shopped on the Internet for price, this was indeed the best value for the money. Their service is quick and easy. I've bought many times from 1000Bulbs.com and will continue to because of good service. Never had a problem. March 5, 2014
