Sylvania 2' & 4' Tubes

Sylvania 2' & 4' Tubes

Click to view full size image

These are half what I ordered the other day for testing really, I got 2 of each. The Daylight 54 tubes are for my bedroom, 4' one in the Netaline and a 2' one in the Lightpack. I've always preferred cooler colours but the highest I've ever gone with 2' and up tubes is Cool White 4300K. I thought I might as well try out some 6500K tubes because they always look great wherever I've seen them installed. I'm very pleased with the results, they really compliment the sky blue walls and blue furniture in my bedroom.

The Warm White 29 tubes are for the Netaline in the living room. My parents said they wanted something warm and the Netaline's used to come with Warm White tubes so I thought that seemed the best choice. I'm not sure whether it's just me but I think they look awful! My general dislike for low colour temperatures doesn't help but the colour rendering is truly horrific with these. What do you guys think? Is it just me or do you think they look horrible too?

I like the way the label yall's lamps, always with the CRI and the color temperature. I agree with you on the 6500K lamps. Most of the ones here are in the 80s CRI. I see yours are 70s and the 3000K lamps are 50s! I have seen some 5000K lamps with 90s CRI. They offer beautiful color rendering.

I didn't know that you could still get T12's in Daylight 765! Can I ask which supplier stocks these as I wouldn't mind getting a couple of these while they are still available? Thanks.

Medlocks could order them in last time I checked and CEF, I've never really tried anywhere else to be honest. These folks have em: http://www.cp-lighting.co.uk/Lamps/1-5-T12

A bit pricey but I CBA with going out, ordering some and then having to pick them up later on so I ordered them online. They still have stocks of 3' T12 and the good old Natural colour 25 which I love although they're way overpriced so I didn't bother.

Daylight 6500K is certainly up there with Natural and Kolorite to me being some of the best colours.

Thanks for that. 6500K always cheers me up especially at this time of the year!

Yeah that was half the reason I got these! I wonder if those 'full spectrum' tubes really do make you any more cheerful than a standard 6500K?

I'm not sure that they do. A few years back I bought a bunch of Sylvania Activa 172 tubes (6500k @ 98 CRI).
The light quality is excellent at the expense of lumens per watt. However, as a SAD sufferer, I don't think they made me any more happier than standard 6500k tubes. (Currently using Sylvania Luxline Plus T8 860's)

I'll stick with the standards then I thought these might help because I've had some serious boughts of depression in the recent years. That and just my general liking of high colour temperatures!

@Eliot_240: I share your depression in the British wintertime, it's damn miserable. High colour temps really are so much more natural and pleasant!

@DieselNut: The shop around the corner from me has these 8000k tubes and they look great. During our depressing winter period, the bright and slightly cool blue light from the shop reminds me of staring up at the sky on a hot summer's day!

The only slight downside with this is it looks a little unnatural with just the one 40W tube on, I have to have a 20W on as well which looks just that little bit better. I could do with an up to date illumination meter, I have an ancient one but it's no good now, the readings aren't right. I was thinking about putting a second Netaline up in the bedroom too but I've already offered it to my Grandparents cause they really like them and my Grandad used to work for AEI and remembers buying one from the staff shop for his Mum back in the day.

Philips make 1700K tubes as well don't they?

I have high CRI 6500k tubes in most of my lights in my shop (F40T10 and F40T12) and it feels like a bright Summer day in there too. I have never seen the 8000k tubes in service. These I have came from member BowlingMania14 on here in a recent trade we did.

Lamps below 3500K are far too orange for me. Above 7000K and it becomes a bit too cold.

One tube i would be interested to see is a Hungary GE F65w/54-765, not shore if they ever made them?

I have a hungarian GE f65t12 840 or CW and I also have Tungsram, also Hungarian made, essentially the same thing, identical to Hungarian GE, in 765 or D. The color is not that nice, I much more prefer CW or NW, D and WW is not for my taste.

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;
