Wow, those certainly seem like interesting possibilities. I don't really know anything about building my own stuff, but if I understand correctly, I'd only need to buy the lamp and socket at the most basic, which would then fit inside whatever reflector/canopy I could find to house it? Certainly sounds pretty cool, assuming they ship these things to Canada.

For the record, the reason I was asking about the 3 possibilities I posted is because I can get all 3 of them in Canada for less than 100$ with shipping. Sidebar: God I hate shipping rates in Canada D:

If you are looking at a kit, I suggest checking out the new AH Supply LED lamp arrays. They are easy to install with good par values and no need for a separate 'power supply' (driver).
