LED tube lights are replacements for fluorescent and CFL tubes. Some advantages to having LEDs in linear lighting fixtures are that LEDs have lower Wattage for the same level of lumens (light) cast, they last longer (up to 50,000 hours of use, equaling several years), and they contain no mercury or other harmful substances.
Some LED tubes are compatible with ballasts existing in fluorescent fixtures, and some do not require ballasts, while others will work either way, with or without a ballast. Ballast compatibility is specified in the descriptions for each LED tube, so you know exactly how each light works and can get the one you need.
Many linear bulbs here are available in more than one color temperature, allowing you to select a light with a warmer hue, a cooler hue, or something in between as it suits your lighting needs.
