"These lights were instant on, no hum, no flicker, and not affected by temperature.

Any fluorescent fixture bought in the past 20 years doesn't slow start, hum or flicker, features of magnetic ballasts that have not been possible to buy for at least two decades.

LED output is temperature dependent. The colder the better. They dazzle in liquid nitrogen.

I am not against LED lighting. But I do object to it being over-sold by people comparing it to ancient fluorescent technology and claiming improvement when there may be none. Anybody pulling a working T8 lamp out of a fixture and replacing it with a LED tube is wasting their money and getting less light.
