      Comments about Bulbrite 40 Watt, 120 Volt T8 Clear Tube Bulb:

      It's just the right size and it fit back into the bathroom medicine cabinet. It's used to light up the mirror on both sides. Easy installation and it gives off the right amount of light. It's a custom ordered bulb that no one else carries and from what I hear they won't be making this type of bulb anymore :(

          Comments about Bulbrite 40 Watt, 120 Volt T8 Clear Tube Bulb:

          I was so happy to find this bulb. Bulbs.com has the best variety and prices on these long tubular light bulbs. This particular bulb extends and lights almost to the top of my tall ceramic
          Christmas trees. These have been in the family for decades and this bulbs has lighted it the best.
          I bought 2 'spares'; I am afraid that they might be discontinued because they are hard to find.
          I am hopeful, based on some other reviews, that they will last through several seasons and holiday gatherings.
          (Bulbs.com.....you should notify ceramic studios that you stock this item.)

          Comments about Bulbrite 40 Watt, 120 Volt T8 Clear Tube Bulb:

          I have two large ceramic Christmas trees.
          Lighting them with regular bulbs, even old 5" aquarium bulbs, was ineffective.
          I discovered that this special bulb existed and that it would light this item correctly from other reviewers on your website.
          Bulbs.com offered the best selection and price on this tubular bulb.
          The service and delivery has been stunningly awesome.....Dec 19th order and delivery to western NC in less than 2 days!

          Very pleased with product and company service.
          I hope the bulb lasts through many holidays.

            Light bulb is suited well for ceramic Christmas trees. Illiminates entire length of bulb and lights the small plastic bulb inserts on christmas tree. Gives even lighting to the entire tree.
