    With all these LED re sellers popping up, you have to wonder how much competition there is, and geeze, how much profit is there to be made.

    http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/6-3V-pinball-led-bulb_752017171.html

    Anyone gone right to the source? Looks like if i want qty 100 or more, i can get it right from China. Lots of LED bulbs all over alibaba.

    I buy components in bulk from alibaba, it really is no hassle with customs or anything. This is exactly what the LED resellers are selling you. They are just playing middle man. If you are doing 10-20 games, it may be worth your time to go to the source.

    Or maybe i should start my own LED bulb website. There is money to be made.

    Just throwing it out there. Competition is good for the entire group. I felt like ruffling some feathers today too.
