the digital is smaller, cooler, weighs less, provides more lumens, quieter, increases bulb life, more efficient...what else?

is the conventional ballast going away like the phonograph, carburetor, and other analog equipment?
 
if a digital ballast lasts three years, that would be a concern.  my regular ballasts are 8-15 years old without any service.  I even ran my first set of bulbs for six years.  i was uneducated regarding bulb freshness, but I also learned that some recommendations for replacing bulbs may be more aggresive than neccessary.
