Philips LED retrofit

Philips LED retrofit

The maintenance guy at work is installing these into the office fixtures now. They don't require disconnecting the ballast or any modification to the fixture - they just install like a regular fluorescent (and some fixtures still have a fluorescent in the second socket). Considering the prior lamps were boring instant-start Philips Altos, these really aren't any worse. In fact they look better than the low-quality green-ended fluorescent lamps that tend to yellow as they age or go mercury-starved, and sometimes have ugly phosphor imperfections. One thing that is interesting is that from the side, you can see "striations" from the individual LED elements, though from the bottom, these look just like fluorescents. In fact, I was in my local Walmart the other day and it took me quite some time to notice that all the lamps had been switched out to these (in the case of Walmart, they were 5000K).

The only issue these have to me is these tubes are very directional and the fixture is not getting any light to reflect downwards. For this reason in my dads basement I have employed Osram LED tubes that give light almost all around the tube
