    Well, being an “early adapter” I’ve purchased several led lights at like, $50 apiece. Every one of them has died a very premature death, to the point I won’t experiment with them anymore.

    My best guess is that the leds are not dying, but rather, the power supplies that allow them to operate at regular household voltage.

  • I had the same problem with early CFLs (and still do sometimes.) The technology still isn’t rock-solid yet, and it needs to be.

    Especially at $50 a light.

    Bob, Josiah,

    I’m considering doing the LED switch in several houses. Are the complaints you have with LED focused on the bulbs with the transformers in them (multi-voltage AC), or the ones with the separate transformers? This stuff is expensive, but it seems it would pay back in a few months (assuming it all doesn’t just break every 5 minutes). Did you purchase from LED Store and did they cover the product under warranty, or just give you some excuse and let it go at that?
