Very Effective

"For years the tubes in my garage would not work properly during the winter months. Research indicated that I was using the older type - magnetic ballast - fitting, which does not operate well in low temps. This type is the electronic (or High Frequency) ballast. It comes on instantly with no flicker and reaches full brightness in a very short while. It's more expensive but worth every penny."

Very poor quality

"Bought 2 of these to replace some old fittings in an estate agents office. Within a month a ballast had burnt out causing visible scorching to the ceiling, not happy! So replaced with same again(screwfix are good with returns, no quibble) and this lasted about another month before burning out! Took both fittings back including the one that had not burnt out(yet) got refund bought decent fittings elsewhere.
They are cheaper than equivalent fittings, but they are poor quality, not worth the risk in my opinion.

"Now on the third fitting in 3 months, electronic ballasts have failed, think these problems may stop me getting anymore work from this customer"

"this fitting is poor quality, iv had to change 3 fittings so far, one didn't work from the start and two have now failed a month or so down the line a week apart, screwfix were very helpful in providing me with a replacement but this does not reimburse the time it has taken to change the fitting itself."
