    Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Product was perfect for our specifications. Product was exactly as specified and met our installation requirements perfectly since there were size restrictions on the fixture we were trying to repair. Would purchase Advance products in the future as the need arises. June 9, 2011
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price I had searched for this ballast at several places and actually had purchased from another store at $40 more than your price. I was very pleased to find this product at a lower price. We thought with the cheaper price that it may be a cheaper made product but that is not true. The ballast have lasted and have helped us better serve our customers and keep their warmers up and running. Thank you for a great product at an affordable price. June 7, 2011
