    LEDs don’t last forever, the warranty for good products should be five years. Anyone who thinks otherwise is mistaken. A good specification from a good lighting designer does the best they can to make sure to use brand name products that include quick connectors for the drivers and the LED array so they can be serviced. LED product specification HAS TO INCLUDE a plan for servicing. Hires a Lighting Designer that understands that!

    I expected to read this article. Not get directed to another web site. Kind of a bait and switch.
