Getting ready to swap out some tubes.

I like 5000K for overhead, and warm for task lamps. Too much cold light is harsh, and too much warm makes me sleepy... Princess and the pea.

I like 'em as bright as possible, so 5000. I put one up in my shop a while back and at first it seemed harsh. Now I'm
used to it, and I like it a lot.

I'm happy with my 4000 tubes. I did the ballast bypass type. Happy about that too.

I use 6500K. Makes a big difference in visibility.
