A RV dealer I sometimes shop at had some that were over $12 apiece.

Good quality ones with multiple LED chips can run you that much.

Good quality LED's are not necessarily expensive. Some may be defective, but the price is not an indicator of whether they will be reliable. I bought 20 of the ones in this picture in 2010 and have transferred them from one RV to another and have not yet had any failures. I did have one array that started blinking when hot (3 individual LED's on a panel of 48) and I switched it to different light fixture and it has worked since then. Possibly a defective circuit board or a loose solder joint?

For whatever reason, it now works and no failures in 7 years. They were $18 for 10, so $1.80 for each one. My investment of $36 for 20 would have cost $240 at $12 each. Quite a savings, in my view. I realize not everyone wants to (or needs to) buy with discretion, but, there are reliable LED assemblies available without paying $12 each. Your views may differ......
