I notice more talk of LED on the board so thought would share this link that popped up today. Just in case you needed any more persuasion to DIY:


Nah - OK - so these things are getting a little cheaper, but they are still waaaaaay pricey given how cheap the components we know are inside cost.

Actually - top of the range LEDs available at any one time will probably always beat what is inside commercials, just because of the lag that's needed for them to filter from the bleeding edge.


of bench mark comparison, claimed lumens, actual candlepower or some other indicator that can be used, even a side by side pics would be good.

But yeah they are getting cheaper and your right you can nearly always build brighter for cheaper.
