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

        Great product. Use them through out the kitchen area and I can see everything. They give a nice bright white and I change them less often then normal tubes. They take up less space for storage because the tubes are smaller.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery from bulbs.com has been great everything arrives on time and in good condition.

            A:

            Cool white (4100K) is brighter with blue tones while warm white (2700-3000K) has more yellow tones. This particular bulb is neutral white (3500K) that has a brighter light than the warm white bulb but not as bright as the cool white bulb. The neutral white is suitable for offices or call centers. All pricing is listed on our website. For any special pricing requests, customer service will need to be contacted.
