Jeffrey, Where do you get these SMD's that's a fantastic price. I know Costco is selling LED bulbs now for much cheaper than big box stores, but I'm not sure if they are SMD.

Beware - LED bulb reliability - Page 2post #32 of 453/9/12 at 10:52am
i've been getting my bulbs from Amazon. They have a good selection of large and small brands and its usually discounted from the big box list prices.
My costco has Feit and Lights of America but LoA is just poorly built and does not provide good quality light output.
Right now the brands I stay with are Philips (the yellow phosphor one) and Tuwago. http://www.amazon.com/Tuwago-Dimmable-Bulb-White-CREE%C2%AE/dp/B0064R2DA8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331319008&sr=8-1post #33 of 453/27/12 at 9:24ampost #34 of 453/27/12 at 9:25ampost #35 of 454/4/12 at 11:25am
I couldnt tell you how many customers we have lost to ebay. Technically, its called 'dumping'. They sell crappy LED products at a fraction of the cost and create a bad name for LEDs. I have spoken with business owners who swear they will never use LEDs because they are all 'cheap'. Thanks ebay. hahapost #36 of 454/11/12 at 10:34pm
as LED lamps(for illumination) has entered into our lives for couple of years. They are expected to provide more >40000hours performance. How do the LED lamps work nowadays? Guys you bought LED lamps in 2008/2009, your led lamps should works more than 2years. Any one would like to share his experience, please?post #37 of 455/3/12 at 10:46am
Is there a place where you can find reviews for light bulbs, provided by third party vendors? I've been considering buying lightbulbs from this vendor, but I don't really have much information on the bulbs in general. I've heard mixed reviews from friends and family on buying from online stores, it'd be great to get some advice :Ppost #38 of 455/10/12 at 4:01am
You said some led corn lights were reliable but didnt state which ones. I run a small business which is heavily dependent on electric lighting ..my light bills are killing me. I need dimmable led lights that diffuse the lighting in teh same way that incandescent bulbs or fluorescent bulbs do ... do led corn lights spread the light around or are they pinpoint lights like regular leds? I know about the energy saving advantage but how do they compare to other bulbs in terms of filling an area with light?post #39 of 455/28/12 at 2:58amQuote:Originally Posted by greenconsumer
I have purchased many led bulbs and have had mixed reliabilty.
The good news - some are very reliable. I have five LED bulbs outside that have run dusk to dawn for two years with no problems.
The bad news - some bulbs are VERY unreliable. VERY high failure rates.
I purchased 12 LED bulbs (8.5W product 47856) from LEDLight.com and 7 have failed. To make matters worse they are refusing to replace them now.
Beware of LEDLight.com. This company is selling products that they know are defective. No support for failed LED bulbs. These bulbs are very expensive ($20 - $105) and in some cases last only two or three weeks. They refuse to replace defective bulbs. LEDLight.com is selling known defective products and has bad customer service.
shamed for ledlight.com. thanks for your warning. i hope this post can protect many people from cheating. As we all know, led is energy-saving, on the other hand it's expencive. how to find a trustful led product becomes important. i know a LED Module light Supplier with high qualified products and nice service. may it is helpful to you.post #40 of 456/26/12 at 2:34pmpost #41 of 457/19/12 at 7:56am
The difference between them in terms of quality can be seen at the first glance. Despite this fact customers tend to choose cheaper product. This leads to disappointment, when "cheap" LED burns out quickly.
High quality LED lamps are effective and energy efficient light s for individual as well as commercial purposes. They work equally well in homes, hotels or restaurants. With high efficiency come savings in electricity bills. Innovative technology makes LED lamps far more durable than any other type of light source currently available on the market. No wonder that more and more people decide to install them, even though they previously used incandescent bulbs. Not everyone knows that LED lamps are not only LEDs. They also have built-in electronic control systems. Only good manufacturers can guarantee that by buying their LED light source customers will actually get a modern, high quality product which will give them savings as well as comfort and satisfaction.post #42 of 457/19/12 at 12:27pm
Tuwago has very well-built LED bulbs and lamps. They perform well, have good light quality, and good heat sinking. I've tried all kinds of leds now and I only buy the philips one with remote phosphor technology and tuwago now. They just came out with several new lights that seem quite promising. I got the new a19 bulb that is a 60 watt replacement and the light is gorgeous! No one at home even knew that it was an LED, just that it was brighter than our original incandescent. http://tuwago.com/a19-led/77-a19-800-dimmable.htmlpost #43 of 458/24/12 at 2:51am
Actually ,That company is a trading company,not a LED manufacturer . so their product's quality is not reliable,and mixed.
I suggest you to chose the professional manufacturer of LED light. Like this :http://www.ledlightingdream.com/post #44 of 459/6/12 at 8:22am
Oh dear, this is pretty enlightening. I thought all LED lights were super reliable! I kind of thought that's why they were so great, they just last and last for years with no problems. I bought some from http://www.alertelectrical.com/cat/463/led-light-bulbs-and-lamps and from http://www.litecraft.co.uk/c/light-bulbs/#page-1 too, never any problems with either. I don't have the tools to measure watt usage like you did though bobkart, but in terms of not breaking, they passed my test!post #45 of 453/15/13 at 1:30pm
