Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good inexpensive upgrade Replaced older type ballast-allowed me to keep old fixture & upgrade to t8 bulbs. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent drop-in replacement for T12 to T8 conversion You can't get T12 bulbs anymore, so I upgraded to T8s and switched my magnetic ballasts for this programmed start one. It is quick, quiet, bright, no flicker, reasonably priced, and a perfect drop-in fit in my fixtures. Highly recommended. February 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does its thing. Easy to install, and works great. Have used tons of these. November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Ballast Good Ballast, works just as it should, great price, what more can you ask for. September 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too early to tell, but so far so good Was straightforward to install and is working fine - quiet and starts quickly. 1000bulbs did a poor packing job so the unprotected tabs pierced the box and were bent. I complained and they promised to do better in the future. I am hoping the ultrastart ballast will allow long lamp life with more frequent on/off cycles; only time will tell if my hopes are realized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by With automatic controls, program Start ballasts are essential. With ordinary (and less expensive) instant start ballasts, fluorescent lamp life decreases markedly with each on / off cycle. Because automatically controlled fixtures turn on and off more often than with manual controls, lamps can burn out sooner. However, because program ballasts turn on lamps gently and because automatically controlled lamps are generally on fewer hours than with manual control, lamp life is greatly extended. If you are replacing just replacing a ballast with this type of ballast in an existing fixture, be sure existing sockets are non-shorting, modified to be non-shorting, or replaced with non-shorting sockets.
