Where can I find inexpansive led light bulb? Answered

Hello everyone,
My dad bought a new kitchen and he would like to put led lights behind plexiglas to have a light source at the level of the work place , I've searched on eBay for cheap led light bulb 40 watts equivalent , but it's a little bit expansive and after searching more , even if they say it's 40 watts equivalent , it's actually not and it's definitely not bright.
Please , may someone help me finding the ultimate inexpansive led light bulb ?

I don't think you're going to see "inexpensive" for at least another five years, possibly double that. But cheap and cost-effective are very different things.

Right now, there's some amount of gee-whiz surcharge, plus the fact that there's still a surcharge for high-intensity LEDs.

But remember that the value is amortized over the length of the bulb's life and the savings both in electricity and in replacement bulbs, so it makes perfect sense that the price would be at least that many times higher.

Quality! Service! Price!
(Pick any two...)

Are you sure you want to go with LED? Don't forget that a fluorescent bulb is just as efficient, and much cheaper.

remember, cool white is brutally cold, and warm white is quite a nice yellow/white.
