"You get what you pay for!"

Sorry, but I feel that I have to vent in order to try and maintain some semblance of sanity. Our company after having provided goods and services to a local high school including this past year provided all new house curtains for their auditorium and a lighting rental package was recently overlooked when their lighting system finally went down for the count. The school board of education decided to go with the local music store. If we could convince every customer that has used this outfit in…See More

Mats Karlsson replied to Bill Nelson's discussion LED strip lights and border lights
"Keep in mind that all Asian manufacturers are not the same. There are manufacturers that can build you products to the highest standards and there are those who will build to a price - and everything in between! You pretty much get what you pay for,…"

"There are definitely some "gems" among the lower priced products. I think Chauvet are particularly good at coming up with some neat products that represents very good value for money. Generally speaking, as long as you make a one time buy…"

"Matt has some valid points. But to be honest, I'm starting to use some of these cheaper priced LED fixtures and they are doing the job. I'm growing tired of seeing posts that say you have to spend x amount on an LED fixture if you want…"
