Rated 5 out of 5Â by Accelerator Let there be light...
If you switch on your florescent tube lights and they just flicker back at you, it's probably due to the starter unit failing. It's incredibly easy to change the starter, although you do need to be comfortable standing on a step ladder (always climb safely and have someone hold/steady your ladder for you, when working). Remember to turn the light switch off when replacing the starter. After you've fitted the new item, switch the light on again and when it starts first time, utter the well (over) used phrase..."and (your name) said let there be light, and there was light... and you could see for miles and miles" :-).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by davidv Buy this if you buy a new tube
My tube was not starting up and was black at the ends so a good sign it needed replacement. Purchased a new tube,got home and not working not even a flicker. I should have purchased these at the same time. Installed one and light is brilliant. Good price and now have 4 spares.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Keep some in the drawer
Does the job. It would have been nice to be able to buy only the one that I needed (hence 4/5 stars), but a box of five is cheap enough to make it worth keeping some spares in the DIY drawer.
Crazy that I can't leave a review without scoring all aspects when (i) this sort of thing has no "features"; (ii) essentially, it either works or it doesn't, so no "performance" to speak of; (iii) it's too early to comment on reliability, and how many people will come back to review something like this in 2-3 years' time?
