"Turned the light on yesterday and an interesting BANG! Fizz-fizz-fizz-POP! from the light fitting.
To be fair, it's been good and was better than the old magnetic ballast fitting it replaced, with pretty immediate light rather than the characteristic flicker start seen with the older ballast. However, I'd prefer it to last more than thirteen months, the one it replaced lasted thirteen years.
It also seems to be a shame that I have to junk the whole thing when it's just the ballast that's gone"

Review 5 for LAP High Frequency Standard Batten 1 x 36W 3350lm 4ft
"I would not usually choose a cheap product but I was doing voluntary work for a charity. I was not expecting much as it was LAP but I can honestly say this is the worst light fitting I have ever had to install and I have installed hundreds.
You have to take off the end caps to get the diffuser off, when you try to put it back on is the point where you realise that is doesn't fit properly so you have to battle to put it on, I damaged one of the diffusers in the process.
It comes with 20mm knock outs at the end which you have to knock out on both the fitting and the end cap. The 20mm holes have been cut too close to the top of the fitting so you cannot fit a lock nut on the inside."
