I purchased these bulbs on a friend's recommendation. The color temp was excellent and I was happy to be out from under fluorescent lights but was disappointed by a certain lack of brightness. Then I changed out my fixtures to Metalux SSF232R and the difference is AMAZING. If you purchase these bulbs, yes, they'll fit in your old T8 fixtures but spend a few extra bucks and replace them and you'll be WAY happier with the performance.
Replaced 12 T12 bulbs in client's art studio. Difference was truly stunning. Even though the paintings looked great before, the colors looked AMAZING with the new 6500K bulbs. I removed the old ballasts and did the direct wire method with single end. Appreciated the option to choose double ended if needed.
Wish they also had BR40 light bulbs for the other fixtures.
We needed very accurate 6500K lighting in our color suite for our studio and this was the perfect solution. It was easy to wire up in a couple different ways and created a nice and balanced sure color of light for the room. We matched it with a couple other lightbulbs for accent lights when less light was needed for coloring and these tubes matched perfectly the lights also from Waveform Lighting. Perfect solution!
I installed my lighting in my 450sq studio. I’m an artist and wanted color accuracy. So far I’m very impressed. I have 16 4ft tubes illuminating the space on two switches. Now when I photograph my work it’s right on!
I ordered this lighting for my new studio space. I am an artist with low vision and needed bright, full-spectrum light to paint and work with fabrics. The installation was easy and the lights came quickly in sturdy packaging with no damage. I’m very happy with this light with its brightness and true color reflection. These lights are in my basement where there’s not much natural light and this compensates very well.
My daughter had a grad mal seizure at the office and the lights bother her. This new bulb is exactly what she needed. Works perfect to mimic mid day sun. Waveform lighting had great pricing and prompt reliable service. Lighting tubes were well wrapped and were in perfect order. Will use the again Tammy S
