That's even cheaper than the Nichia white LEDs, which are about $2 per in
quantities of 100. If I could get the Star/O LEDs for that price, I would
buy hundreds of them and make some of those lights to put up around the
dwelling. I guess there really is a huge advantage to buying them in large
quantities. The only question I have is how large a quantity does one have
to buy in order to get that price? Or even a price somewhat near that?
Yesterday I tried to get onto Future Electronics website to get to their
catalog and price list but all I could get from clicking on every link on
their home page was 'not found', same thing with the links from a Google
search. I dunno what the problem is, but it's _really_poor_ business
practice to have a nonfunctional web page. :-(
