LED aren't expensive, you've been lied to =]

Posted 04/07/2010 at 06:02 PM by Mmckibben

hi, so we all know that the half decant led fixtures go for around $400-$600, we also Know that they cover only 12 to 18 inches. Who would buy such an expensive thing! Well, problem solved. This website sells pre wired led kits for $20 that include 4 cree xpg cool white leds, and 3 cree xpg royal blue leds. The best part is they only cost $22 each! Buy 4 of theses, and you have the same amount of light out put as the popular Aqua illuminmation system thats goes for $450! Once you gat a driver, you look at spending only $150! The amount of light out put by 4 of these and optics looks to be greater than 150 watt metal halide!
