Sure...COB ( Chip On Board ) has its advantages. Considering the application is not a water tight designed fixture, I wanted to make sure to recommend something that limited potential failure due to moisture, connection in a socket, or properly managing heat. The other considerations were the insulators had tight spaces inside so we had to be as minimal as possible. I concede that some would have used a different method but for the contractor, he was thrilled. Everything fit together without issue and all he essentially needed to do was connect to power..put the glass on top....and hide the wire....

This is the part I was referring to. You said you use a similar assembly in path lights instead of using an LED bi-pin. Or am I not understanding this correctly?

Oh, sorry...we make both options available because we know there are differences in how locations want to offer LED. As a manufacturer, we didn't just want to have an LED lamp put in our products because that would not necessarily be a true LED fixture with the existing design.....there are theories out there as to which is best but I won't try to convince anyone....in a one inch copper pipe we use for risers in path lights, we designed an insert to replace a bi-pin socket so it's an easy switch out on site or they could opt to use a Bi-Pin...for this application, I felt the COB was crucial....as it and the driver are sealed to be water tolerant...sorry for the confusion....

Since this thread has been revived again, I'll post some recent photos. I installed this project originally about 5 years ago as a halogen system. It had PAR36 well lights up lighting the architecture as well as various down and niche lights. We gutted it and replaced everything with new LEDs.

Since it is winter, the landscape looks pretty bleak (I wasn't even going to post them because of that) but, oh well. I plan on going back in the late spring when all the hostas and annuals are filling the bed spaces.

Yeah, I tear out all well lights now also. In the photos with the front up lighting, I tore out the well lights and used Infinity G2s. In the grassy areas lighting the trees, I had to go to an MR16, directional well light.
