Bulb Shape

The description of the general appearance of a lamp/bulb consists of a letter(s) followed by a number. The letter indicates the shape of the bulb and the number relates to the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. For example, a common household bulb is the A-19. The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".

CRI

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.
 
CRI

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).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)

    Comments about MaxLite DirectFit 27 Watt, 46" T5 LED Bulb, 5000K, Works Off Existing T5HO Electronic Ballasts:

    I purchased this product for our office. We had some flimsy T5 light bulbs that would burn every other day. I was looking for something that lasts while at the same time reducing our electric bill. The 5000K light bulbs that I received are great for our office and eventually, I am replacing all the light bulbs in the office.

      I have T5 high bay lights in my shop, these are much brighter and whiter than the 5000k flourescents. Immediate startup and instant full light compared to the flourescents and easy on the eyes, no flicker. Direct fit, pricey but they are great.
