I bought mine from Costco, and the prices are dropping as scale of production increses in the past 2 years.

But for the time being, I think CFB Flood light is still ALOT cheaper than LED Floodlights and it may be another year or 2 until it makes Economic sense to switch LED Flood lights


Thanks Bee I didn't find any at Costco online. I will have to brave the warehouse to see what they've got.

It's a pricey investment, but a smart one as they have already paid for themselves in the 2 years I've had them.

I went through an LED wholesale company and they come with a free no hassle replacement service if a bulb goes out.
I am going through a bulb a month in my kitchen and it just seems like such as waste. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Thanks. I am trying some 2700K (what they call warm white) PAR 38 in my family room and so far I really like them

Thanks, I'll check them out
