YMMV. We've been using these leds in our house for several years with no issues.

I prefer the LED bulbs where the ballast is removed. That is one of the major benefits of going to LEDs. With these, you still need to maintain an electric ballast.

Exactly, pins are same size as long as it's TWO of them on EACH end but if ballast is not electronic it won't drive them (funny thing is the ones from costco made by feit WILL work in T12 fixtures (with instant start ballasts) but are over driven by those ballasts (they work at 120-140% more brightness than with T8 electronic ballasts) which makes them work hotter and probably shortens the life of LEDs in the tubes). From my experience besides Costco ones the Philips, GE, Utilitech all required the newer T8 electronic ballasts. Best option is to get cheapest T8 lamp and stick LED tubes in it that way you can easily replace in event of a failure with either regular or LED T8 tube and don't have to wait or hope that you find replacement strips for newer built in LED lamps.
P.S. Note that these LED tubes are made out of glass (yes glass not plastic I guess they used the technology from fluorescent tubes production vs plastic that some others use, Feit in Costco made them out of plastic), so when the tube breaks you loose the whole thing and will deal with glass shards clean up BUT if you don't have someone that can break them then it's ok to use them.

It's just not about the physical connection, it's about the ballast. The vast majority of these LED replacements only work with an electronic ballast. Not an old style magnetic ballast on most T12s.

I've had some that didn't work from HD, but the ones from Costco did work.

I only use 2 in my 4 bulb kitchen light.. 4 was too much

They also have 16pack available for 50% off. These do need ballast and do not work as direct wire (ballast bypass)

Yes and no. You need a modern electronic ballast. If you have a 40 year light, probably not.

Is 4% CB too much?

Your talking about putting in a T8 size replacing T12s.
Should fit depending on how many pins there are on the end of the tube.
