Rated 5 out of 5 by cheapeto What a fantastic tube!!
We raise sunflower greens, and other sprouts, outdoors in the spring and summer. In the fall and winter we grow them in our basement.
I bought some single tube T-5 HO fixtures at a garage sale, and they had either a red or blue tube in them. When I went to replace them, $12.00 a tube was the best I could find.
On a sprouting site, many folks said the reds and blue are only OK, just find a High Output tube and try it, I did so.
These Plusrite tubes beat the stuffings out of the *grow tubes*!!
It was so intensely different in growth patters, we took photos of the sprouts leaning towards the Plusrite when a grow tube was on top of them. Color of tube meant NOTHING! As we looked at them, tray after tray, level after level, you could see the plant tops stretch towards the better light source, going to the Plusrite tube!!
Super fast delivery, from super nice folks to deal with.....at fantastic prices as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveInSoCal Incredible light output
Insane light output from something the diameter of your pinkie. We put them in Sun & Stars BSS-HB6T5PC fixtures (excellent!), replacing countless 8' T-12 lamps in our warehouse. A great value. Couldn't be happier. One caveat: upon receipt, check every lamp for hidden breakage, as they're pretty fragile.

Fit perfect in my T5s been running them for about a month now and no problems. Never paying $8 a bulb from the hydro store again. Couldn't be happier

Rated 5 out of 5 Best bulbs and Super fast service.
I go through these bulbs pretty regular and the indoor garden stores charge upwards of $10 per bulb. I found this website and have never been happier. And man was i shocked when the bulbs arrived so quick. I have recommended this website to all of my friends in the industry.
The quality of my bulb is the exact same i have seen at hydro store for $15 each. Buy the big box your saving money by the boat loads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jrg013 Works as expected, good price
For the bulk price, this is a good deal for 6500k 4ft HO T5s. I have been using them continuously for a couple of months now, so far so good. We'll have to see how they work out long-term, however...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dmartin95 Great Bulb for the price!
1000bulbs.com was great and S&H fast! Lights were packaged very securely.
The bulbs themselves are great but they may not work for eveyones application due to their size. They're 45.2" M.O.L. and "Major Brands" have an industrial standard of 45.8" M.O.L. Worst case scenarion would be that you would have .3" of pins not secure in the lamp holders.
In my application I was was retrofitting some old F40T12 shoplights into T5's and these bulbs work great. I use them for Horticulture research and have absolute wonderful success!
Thank you 1000Bulbs!
