To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
these were a great replacement for my apartment bulbs under my kitchen counter. Only problem I encountered was the longevity of these bulbs wasn't what I expected. The bulbs that were already installed when I moved into my apartment still worked fine but wanted to replace for a brighter view at night. After 2.5 years those still work. I purchased these a few months back and they both have already burned out. They'll get the job done for a short time or if you just need a bulb replacement quick but if you really want a longer lasting bulb you'll have to drop some extra cash on a better quality bulb. would I buy again? for the price of these yes but like I say if you want longer lasting then you'll have to upgrade to a better style.
I ordered a two pack and the lamps arrived well packaged and in their own boxes. If you've ever tried to remove one of these tubes that was shrink wrapped to a piece of cardboard, you'll appreciate this packaging! The quality of the light as far as color temp and brightness is great. Overall a good value compared to purchasing in a retail store. Like other reviews have mentioned, the lifespan seems short. One of the lamps stopped working within 6 months of usage of about 5 hours a day. I contacted the vendor and they quickly resolved my problem. I am impressed this vendor made it right.
The F8T5/CW 8W T5 12-Inch 4100K Fluorescent Light Bulbs arrived on time and very securely packaged for shipment to home. Easy to install and brightness was as advertised. 'soft white' Great price for 2 bulbs.
Bulbs arrived with broken elements in both bulbs. Visibly looked ok, but could hear the broken element rattle inside bulb. Replacement bulbs (which were actually a different brand) were the same way. No more buying bulbs online, fluorescent or otherwise.
