excellent product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Quick shipping, well packed. Installed it after reading the instructions and it took 10 minutes total. Only problem is the Clam Shell design of my G1000SDX did not want to release the TOP part and I found that there were 9 screws and not just 7 as instructions said and those two unmentioned screws were keeping the top part of front panel attached to the inside metal housing. The two halves of the housing do not pull apart like a clam. Had to pry open slightly to unscrew those 2 HIDDEN inside screws after forcing the front panel forward towards me. Result was in reassembling the two halves of the housing the top has a slightly widened separation of about 1/8th inch. Tried pushing hard on the inside metal bracket with a screwdriver and still not complete closure of the front housing, top portion. No problem since I usually have some small item on top of the rotator control anyway. So, Ham Supply OK but Yaesu design makes it hard to separate the clam rotor control box with the hidden internal top screws... Great lighting now after 12 years of having none! Well designed product and reasonably priced. This is the only practical solution for that internal original bulb that goes bad in a short time. Mine lasted a year. 
Product is in production.
