Assess priority

3. Where do I begin?

What’s most important to you?
Decide what aspect of this light is most important for you. Some will prefer a clean build with professional-grade components. Some will just want an inexpensive fixture that works. Some need an all-in-one package. Click on one of the links below, and it will show you the relevant post, and hopefully put you on the right track. Not all posts are represented here, but I will add to this list as the thread grows.
  • All-in-one packages: start with the Vendors section
  • Power: start with the Emitters section
  • Low Price: start with the Driver or Vendors section
  • Aesthetics: Start with the Heat Sink section
  • Functionality: Start with the Controller section
