Good though different to photo
on 16 October 2014
Not much experience with these things but the old dying starter was taking approaching 10 seconds to start the neon light and this one is taking about 1 second which is obviously a vast improvement. In my case it's replacing an Osram ST111 starter which is plugged into an Osram Lumilux 58w neon tube. Works fine.
Only criticisms I can make are cosmetic ones - neither the packaging nor the product match that displayed in the photo. Nevertheless, they do appear to be branded Philips S10 starters and as they work well I have no reason to believe they're not, so I'm only mentioning it so that prospective buyers know what they're getting.
But like I say they work well and for the money appear to be a bargain. I just think the photo should always match the product when goods are sold online so they're missing a trick here.
Edit: 03/09/15: first of the starters still going strong a year later. It may have slowed a bit but nothing worth mentioning really
