Default Tube Led t8 lighting

Hello fellow NYers!

Just a question to see if anyone has tried or used these before.

http://ledtubesdirect.com/products/1...placement-tube

They are T8 tube lights but LED.

If you any of you guys know of it, how is it? and where can I get it locally or a trusted site to use?

I'm thinking of getting these but I havent read about it anywhere it at all.

Thanks!

Hi ekimf,

It might be worth a try. Please note that they run on 120 VAC so you will have to remove the ballast from your fixture for use. It appears that Cool White @ 5000K would be the closest to 6700K.
