I do. And I don't like it. I bought two 40W-Model's. Each can handle 2 
40W lamps. Both of the ballasts show about 15-20min delay. I mean, when 
you turn on the switch, the lights don't come on immediately. The delay 
is not like old start-buld type delay. The ballasts just wait without 
doing anything. But when I first bought them, they started immediately. 
So, I guess there may be electronics circuit design problem which can be 
manifested under a certain-but-common situation.
