In the USA there is another site,http://www.kingbrightusa.com/Default.asp i ordered a couple of LEDs (not sure the limit is but probably not over 5 LEDs) i sampled the micro LEDs without realizing t and i have to keep them in the bag so i don't lose them
really? i emailed them and they said they did not offer samples after a week or two of emailing back and forth. they are a lost cause unless you say yuo are an engineer.

they also send you a 1 page catalogue with your order just give them a good cover story,a smile, and an email
So what should we give for an email address/info when it asks?

If you want the samples, yes. But it is totally up to you.
Can somebody give me a direct link to where you can order the leds, because I cannot find it.

The Sun LED server was not available the numerous times I tried to connect to it. Either they're undergoing maintenance, or they may have changed their address. However, I was able to connect using http://www.sunledusa.com/ - which also has links to spanish and portuguese translations.

Bivar link is currently http://www.bivar.com/l - which returned a 404 (not found) page. Removing the "l" gets you to Bivar's home page, or this will take you to the next step, which is their illumination division.
