To my eyes, Chroma 50's has a warm cast (yellowish, according to the 
comparison chart on my web site).

As to the original question, I always recommend the Penn Plax Ultra Tri Lux 
for a "pure white" look.  Richard, you said that Penn Plax bulbs are 
probably some other bulbs repackaged.  Have you seen the Ultra Tri Lux?  I 
haven't seen any bulb like it under any other label.  It's made in Japan.
