    I was planning on using this kit from Rapid led 48 Ultra Premium LED DIY Kit with Dimmable Drivers but now I am not sure. I like the idea of plug and play but 4-48" lights would be over 700 bucks.

    That is the best way to look at it. If you make on average 15 dollars an hour, and you put 10 hours into the light then 150.00 added to the cost of the kit, so technically you would have, given the scenerio, spent almost 600 on the light anyways.

    I just don't want to spend a bunch of money on something that is sub par. The Current's use a strip of LEDs and I have been told that the strips are not near as bright as the individual LEDs.
