Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale) the richer and more accurately colors generally appear. CRI differences among lamps are not usually visible to the eye unless the difference is more than 3-5 points.

Color Temperature (Kelvin)

An expression of the hue of the light emitted, measured in degrees Kelvin. Usually expressed by a four digit number followed by (k), such as 2700k. 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).

Comments about Philips Lighting Company 32 Watt, 48 Inch T8 Warm White Fluorescent Bulb:

I like the fact that the green tipped bulbs have less mercury. I have avoided using Florescent fixtures in the past because I didn't like the color temp of the bulbs. These are much better at 3000k but I would like to see bulbs in the 2500k range. The light color is adequate but I would prefer warmer. I used these in the basement and for the laundry room.
