DOES THE PACKAGE SAY 2700K OR 3000K?

This question is from 12 in. T5 8-Watt Soft White (2700K) Linear Fluorescent Light Bulb
Asked by
Arlington, WA

March 6, 2015
Soft white (aka "warm white") can come in two different color temperatures. HomeDepot.com says these are 2700K, but the soft white package in this brand said 3000K in the store... does anyone have a package they bought online to verify the true color temperature? I'm pretty sure online has it wrong, but I wanted to make sure. I'd really like to find a bulb in the more yellow 2700K temperature, and I wanted to know if the package actually says 2700K or of if the web listing is in error. I just bought a different brand that was said to be 2700K, but the web listing was in error as the temperature was probably about 3200K.

Answer: 
Package says it has the 'appearance' of 2700K, but in reality it is 3000K. I found the light very pinkish, not good.

Answer: 
CRI means 'Color Rendering Index', which is not the same as 'Color Temperature (Kelvin rating)'.
CRI means - does the color of objects around you look natural at the bulbs listed Kelvin rating?
The question asked did not address what Kelvin rating (color temperature) the bulb was at. This tube light comes in various color temperatures such as 2700K (Warm White), 3000 (Soft White), 4000K (Cool White) Read More

The question asked did not address what Kelvin rating (color temperature) the bulb was at. This tube light comes in various color temperatures such as 2700K (Warm White), 3000 (Soft White), 4000K (Cool White) etc.
Theoretically, at 2700K, CRI is 100, or perfect color rendering.
However, this particular bulb is 3000K, but specs listed on it state its 'Appearance' is 2700K.
I bought 2 of them. The color is neither 2700K or 3000K. 2700K is a warm incandescent bulb type of light, while 3000K is more like halogen whiter light, but not bluish like Cool White Neon light.
This bulb is an awful pinkish dim light. So in my opinion, CRI is about 50. This is not a scientific rating. Read Less

Answer: 
Home Depot currently has only two 12 inch neon options: Warm White and Cool White. Both are 8 watts. I have checked Home Depot online as well.
Amazon has a few more, but none are what you are seeking.
Your best bet would be to check a specialty lighting store online and request this. Often, there is not enough demand in box stores to store each type of bulb.

Answer: 
That lamp does not come in the Daylight color. We only have the soft white and cool white. The lamp should not turn pink. It’s a warmer color temperature so it has more red color, which may seem a bit pinker

Answer: 
The small 12 inch tube lights only come in Warm White (2700K), Soft White (3000K), and Cool White (4000K and up - more bluish).
You have to check each color option to match against the other under counter lights.
Best bet is to exchange your 12 inch tube light fixture for some LEDs that are warm white, and have cost savings in energy. Matching lights is difficult if you have halogen, fluorescent,
