Hey, there... Just an update....

I tried to look up Best Hongkong only to be stopped by my anti-virus system, which tells me the site has a Java Script hijacker buried in it.

Anyone else run into this ???

Best Regards,

if you are in the USA checkout usLEDsupply.com i have used a bunch of their Flex Strip lights and they have had the best prices i have seen
and for single chips try DealExtreme.com they have good prices but the quality isn't always as good

Take a look for yourself, like I did, you'll be impressed.

Here is a bit of shameless self promotion.

We also have a good variety of LEDs and provide shipping from only $3.00

LEDs can be found in large amounts in those colorful LED christmas lights... For the rare, stuff (bipolars, RGBs) you might want to order those from somwhere...

radio shack is very expensive when it comes to quality leds. Those leds that come with those multipacks dont have the most demanded colors-White, Blue, And 'True' Green. In my experience, the best source for leds is christmas rope lighting. I bought a 25 foot multi colored rope light on clearance for $.79. It has 30 blue, 30 red, 30 white, and 30 true green leds. If youre looking for a much higher quality led, then meritline seems to have the best prices for a respected internet retailer. They recently had a 3watt white led complete with driver on sale for $7.. its a $30 led!

phenoptix.co.uk is pretty damn good if I do say so myself!!

We offer fantastic quality LEDs, with honest shipping prices.
. Technically, I think that's SPAM. I was going to flag it, but noticed you've been here for quite a while and made many contributions, so I guess it's a friendly suggestion. At least you included a disclaimer (as if the nick wasn't a dead giveaway). . BTW, nice looking site. I like being able to see the prices in $US. If I ever need bulk LEDs, I'll check PO out closer.
Thanks, glad to hear I'm not spam! I've still not had the time to put together any instructables, got lots of pictures of various jobs I've done but not got around to doing the final bit. Glad you like the site though!

I can recommend Best Hongkong If you want to buy a big pile of leds.

They have all types and colors of leds, from the ultra-ultra bright down to dirt cheap bags with 1000 pcs of normal leds.

Ebay might be an alternative, but watch out for sellers that sells like 100 leds for $3.95 and then add $29 in shipping for them.
