Anyway I have been using the Armacost brand LED lighting from Lee Valley. It has been in the ball park on pricing up until recently.
8' roll of 18 LEDs per foot runs about $42. Transformer min 15 watt about $23. Remote control/dimmer about $36. Connectors, wiring, about $5
Plus shipping. And made in China.
Amazon Hero LED Kit
16.5' roll of 36 LEDs per foot Transformer 60 watt Remote Control/dimmer Connectors, wiring
Made in China
To compare, The Hero has twice the length ribbon LED with double the density of lights, 3 LEDs every 1 inch vs. 3 LEDs every 2 inches.
To get the same length and density of lights from LV would cost $149 plus a $50 transformer.
I should have the Amazon Hero lights on Thursday.
