    I had a 4 bulb fluorescent light burn out today. I thought about LED replacement, but not sure it's worth it. Most bulbs 48 inch small dia are like $~30. Most say too you have to bypass the ballast to move to the LED bulbs. Is this true for all upgrades to LED, or do some not care about the ballast? I didn't see any starter in the fixture.

    I did a little research Creee claims their bulbs need no modification, work with starter or not, even electronic start.
