    I just stocked up on low voltage lights yesterday. Seems like every time I do the prices have gone up, yesterdays bill was over 700 bucks.
    • MR-16 20 watt were 3.80
    • 20 watt Bi -Pins were 3.50
    • 4414 or 15 W par 36 were 6.70
    • 1141 were were .85

    I have to be able to find a better supplier. I have always used my irrigation supplier. I hesitate to buy off the Internet without a referral because I have heard of poor quality lights. I have used the same supplier for 15 + years but its time for a change. BTW this was after I asked for the "best" price they could give me.

    here we go again with posting prices in public.... your bulb prices are low on the mr 16 i dont know what your using butt you should probably be using a ushio or cast 10k bulb to minimize bulb changes then relamp every 2 years.

    what kind of bi pins are you using... halogen? zelogen ? other ?

    Get with Chuck at florida outdoor lighting for your bi pins. I been using them with zero probs at an atractive price. My mr 16 prices are higher than yours tho thats for sure.

    If you buy bulk from Ushio direct you can get a nice deal. $3.50 for a 10k lamp.
