    I checked out the guy's website FYI here is his outdoor lighting section www.sadreedesign.com/lighting_page.htm I think the guy's intentions are good but he is obviously ignorant on what makes a quality outdoor lighting system. I LOVE the "Water Proof Tape" I wonder if FOLD or Terradek carries it? As far as using "Malibu" equipment and "hack" techniques his job didn't look tooooo? bad? (I ve seen worse) If the guy got educated, he could be a pretty good outdoor lighting guy. Someone bold should introduce him to this forum.

    Ned...this one hurts my eyes... and could explain the sunglasses. (Not that it's too bright, just that he wants to remain incognito.)

    Yah, that lighting design is pretty bad. Those rediculous fixture are hideous.

    This is no joke. A neighbor gave me a set of plastic Malibus (set of 10 4w each) along with the wire and the 30 watt transformer. I didn't want them so I gave them to my father to sell on eBay. Well he sold them today for $35 plus $25 shipping. When he told me all I could think is whoever bought them must have been on crack. Three people were actually bidding on them.

    I looked them up on the web and they retail for $35 brand new in the box, the ones he sold were used.

    So I must ask...which one of you on here bought them?
