    Undercabinet LED Lighting

    Can someone recommend a decent quality, yet affordable product for residential use? I know of the Juno LED products, but these are at least $20 a pop. The current setup is 11 small, single bulbs made by Hampton Bay, but the problem with these is they go out pretty often, and run up the power bill.

    I could get away with 8 4 inch bars, or even just 11 single small, maybe 1 or 2 inch fixtures with LEDs. I will also need 2 extra small LED fixtures.

    My main concern is longer lasting lights, lower power consumption for lower electric bill, and small hidden lights, while still maintaining brightness. Keep in mind that the home owner does have a budget, and optimally, $5 a pop would be awesome.

    Also, being dimmable would be another option that the homeowner woud like.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Oh yeah, another request from the home owner... she wants the two small LED lights to look good because they will be visible.

      Are you really looking for an LED fixture for 5 bucks? :confused:

        For the price you want to pay I would go to home depot or lowes and see what's there.
        They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
        She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
        I can't help it if I'm lucky

          LEDs are still not "cheap" as far as inital costs yet.

          I've installed the LED linear ribbon from this company GM Lighting for a customer. Pretty nice. Don't know what your costs would be.

            These are popular here, but they are a ribbon....
            lots of bells & whistles...may be out of your price range...

            At my age, I'm accustomed to restaurants asking me to pay in advance, but now my bank has started sending me their calendar one month at a time.

              That's what I thought, but the homeowner is a good friend of mine who is not exactly... wealthy, so I was just trying to help her out. I wasn't sure if there were any products out there that might fit her budget.

              Wonderful idea! Why didn't I think of this? I have used these before and I may take this into consideration.

                Wow... anything with LED lights are seriously expensive. Is there another cheap alternative to a more dependable lighting system, that doesn't blow bulbs every other month? On the package, it says the bulbs last 4000 hours, but realistically, they only last around 1400 hours. They are left on at all times, so that might have something to do with it. Perhaps it is not the product, but the install? The owner had put these in herself and they are daisy chained, 3 Hampton Bay light pucks via extension cord per recepticle to 3 seperate recepticles.

                :-?

                Here are the exact product:

                  Those lights are garbage, But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

                  You'll have to spend a little more to get anything worthwhile.

                  Look here for some good quality at reasonable prices.
