Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aikidoka Excellent replacement for Sylvania
I replaced four Sylvania 34W tubes with these ones in my kitchen. At 40W the kitchen is now much, much brighter. The tubes were easy to install. Just swapped out the old ones and inserted the new ones. Just be careful about the diameter of the tubes you're looking for. The T12 tubes have a larger diameter than the T8 tubes I think, which therefore makes replacing T8's with T12's a bad idea. The length says 4 feet, but that's an approximation. The tubes are actually slightly shorter than 48 inches, but they did fit perfectly.

I really like the color of the light these give. It brightens our kitchen and makes everything look better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by logan431 Inferior Quality
Replaced the bulbs in my garage shop lights with these. First, they are nowhere near as bright as the GE bulbs I have been using. Second, they buzz. I tried switching the bulb with the GE bulb right next to it and the buzzing followed the Philips bulb so it isn't my fixture. Third, as far as having a 24,000 hour life - ridiculous. These bulbs last 6 months or so, and that's turning them on for only a minute or two most days. Occasionally, the lights will be on longer if I'm working in the garage. I'll never buy these bulbs again. Most of the good reviews that are posted here are not from people who have used these bulbs for a few months. I'm going back to GE.

Cool white is suitable for kitchen. Bought 4 to replace the ones that are old and worn out in the light fixture. The "Alto" line claims to contain less mercury than other products. Please be sure to recycle the old tubes, and Home Depot takes them.
