Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors.

Higher temperatures indicate whiter, "cooler" colors, while lower temperatures indicate yellower, "warmer" colors. Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)

    Comments about Philips Lighting Philips 16.5 Watt, 6" Gap T8 Cool White UBent LED Bulb:

    This bulb style did require me to replace the ballasts in my fixture, but I believe it was worth the additional cost. The old U-tube florescent bulbs were always burning out and flickering, I am expecting much better performance from these U-tube LED's.

    • Q:

      Do these bulbs allow ballast bypass or do they require an instant-start electronic ballast? In other words, if I pull and bypass my old magnetic ballasts, will these work like most LED fluorescent replacements do without me needing to buy anything else?
