I brought a dimmable digi ballast a couple of months ago, had been wanting one for a while. I have the 600W version and it runs a LOT cooler, makes no noise and I can run it at 50%, 75%, 100% & 110% superlumens, they also use slightly less leccy than the magnetic ballasts.

Win Win so far as I'm concerned.

I used to use some digi ballasts when i done it with a mate..
The digi ballasts were just left on the carpet..
Recently i bought a kit of fleabay and it came with compact ballasts and they get RED HOT..
I put them on the wooden beams off my bed and when the grow was done there were burnt spots where they had been.
If I was you I would get the digi, they aint much more, im gonna sell mine after this 1 and get some..
Think they will last longer also.
