Comments about Philips 32 Watt, 48 Inch T8 Bright White Fluorescent Bulb:

Bought a case of these for my garage and the bulbs are great. The light is really bright and the 500K color is so much better than my old T-12's.

My only problem is that they are sold by the case. The packaging did not have ANY indication that it was fragile and Nine (9) bulbs out of 30 were broken. Bulbs.com will not send me replacement bulbs because "we only sell them by the case and we cannot open a case." They did refund me the difference, but I still need the bulbs. Now I have to find a similar bulb somewhere else and risk different colors. Great product, but buy it from someone who is willing to replace damaged ones.
