Philips 40-Watt Equivalent 4 ft. Linear T12 InstantFit LED Tube Light Bulb Daylight Deluxe (6500K) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 132.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from These tubes were installed in my kitchen ceiling fixtures. ... These tubes were installed in my kitchen ceiling fixtures. The give great light which I need as I have a vision disability. However, after 45 min - 1 hr they go out. They are not burned out, they just go out. If I wait 1/2 or so they will come back on. It seems to me like they are overheating. I called Hope Depot and spoke to customer service representative in the lighting dept. Unfortunately he couldn't give me an answer. It could bae the wiring it could be the ballast it could be the wrong wattage. I ordered the tubes recommended by a lighting department assistant when Itold him what type of fixture(s) I have. He could only say I should call an electrician. I don't think anything is wrong withthe wiring. There was nothing wrong with it before I had these LED tubes installed. There was nothing wrong at all excep that the florescent tubes would burn out after a time. I bought these LED tubes to get around that.

One of the biggest issues in the :LED lighting world are products that are positioned as direct replacements for other technologies, such as this bulb which is positioned as a direct replacement for conventional fluorescent bulbs. However, as they say, the devil is in the details. In particular, a conventional 6500K 40w T12 fluorescent will produce 2600 lumens of light. An older version of this product produced 2100 lumens of light. This product? 1800 lumens. So while you are saving energy, each of these bulbs is also producing just about 69.2% of the light of their conventional predecessors. Perhaps that's enough for you in your application, but you should be aware of that before you decide to replace your current bulbs wholesale with these. They do work, and they produce a pleasing amount of light, but ultimately the reduction in light output was too much and I had to return them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works in laundry room, not garage I have the same fixtures in my garage as my laundry room, however, I have noticed that whenever the garage door opens or closes, these lights go out. I was wiggling them around each time this happened and was starting to think there was something wrong with them or the ballast, but I swapped out my current fluorescent lights from the laundry room and they worked as normal. I then put these LED lights in my laundry room and they turn on no problem so I really believe the shaking from the garage door opener loosens them to the point where they don't light up. It looks like I'll have to continue to buy the old school fluorescent lights for the garage, but other than that these have really brightened up my laundry room and I'm considering them for the master closet as well. I hope they hold up since some of the 1 star reviews have me nervous about paying double for each of these LED bulbs.

Both lights in the kitchen fixture were not coming up to full brightness. I was pretty sure it was a ballast but bought these bulbs anyway. They worked great for about 2 hours then the ballast quit for good. While they were working they had a nice bright white light. I was going to buy a new ballast but it was more expensive than the no ballast LED's so I returned these and bought those. If you are sure your problem is the bulb or you are replacing the florescent bulbs because you want to, these are great. If you think it's the ballast, get the no ballast replacements.

The light comes on the instant the switch is on. The light is bright, "clean" and a little stark, characteristic of LEDs -- I guess I am used to the strange light florescents emit.Slightly too expensive, but otherwise worthwhile.

At first they seemed like they might be defective, since they had issues turning on the first few times we used them. I guess they needed to calibrate or some such because they’re perfect now. We haven’t had issues since the first day.

It fizzled as soon as I turned on the switch. I returned it and will purchase a ballast-bypass solution instead. Ballast compatibility is an ongoing issue with Philips LED replacements for fluorescent light fixtures.

These LED replacements for florescent tubes are ideal in that they are bright, and are a direct replacement without modifying the fixture they are installed in. Huge difference in the lighting of the kitchen. Very pleased with brightness and the instant on as opposed to the florescent bulbs.
