Yesss, I picked up 2 of the same ones I think, the "Great Value" ones at Walmart... Yeah, around $6 each, the give off a great blue color and don't use much power. I wanted to use floods before, but regular ones get too hot and use too much power.I was actually pretty impressed with the new colored LED floods that I picked up from WalMart. Red, green, or blue for only $6. That seems cheap for an LED flood.
I grabbed a blue one at the local Walmart and they had red, green and yellow as well. Keep checking, they will restock.I was just wondering about these myself. Good to know that they put off good lighting. I will go and see if I can go grab some for my displays. Unfortunately the blue ones are sold out at my local store, but they did still have the red and green ones. I think Home Depot might have the blue ones for around $11. But getting the red and green ones at a lower price will offset the cost of the blue one.
That's my OCD problem. I like the Lowes floods and the colors they produce. I tried some from Homedepot and they were not as dark or rich. It drives me nuts and my wife cannot tell the difference.I have tried both the Lowes for $10 and the Walmart for $7. The Lowes offers a deeper red in my opinion. The walmart is much lighter red. More of a white light with red tint whereas the Lowes version is red.

That is good to know. Maybe if I get a chance to drive to our closest town with a Lowe's I can stop in and see what they have. It is a 2 hour drive to get there. Been trying to get to that town all summer, but just haven't been able to. I need to do a serious Costco run and get stocked up on some items before snow flies.I have tried both the Lowes for $10 and the Walmart for $7. The Lowes offers a deeper red in my opinion.

Good to know.
Does the Lowe's version have a "red" tinted glass lens? Or do you have no idea what color it is until you turn it on?
I upgraded almost all of my car's bulbs to LEDs this fall, and the color of the LED and the color of the lens (or lack of color) makes a big difference...
I can attest that the Walmart blue ones are a good rich blue, can't compare it with others though.
Example: The Gemmy stake spotlights I have have no way of knowing what color they are until you turn them on (clear lens). I wrote the color on the housing so I can keep track.
I replaced my graveyard accent lights with some of the blue LEDs and I think they work great. Need to get one more today and that finishes the graveyard off. I agree with the black light comment, it does give that effect, which is fantastic for what I needed, an unexpected bonus.I went and bought the red, green and blue LED floods at walmart last night and I agree the red isn't really all that red, or even that bright. But it was still better than what I had and will have to work for this year. The green isn't too bad, it is definitely bright, almost too bright, I can't really tell how true to color it is, but maybe it is what I have it shining on. Green light on green witches faces. The blue could be brighter, but it seems pretty true to color and actually has more of a black light effect. Anything that was white or light colored glowed with the light shining on it. Might be good for lighting up a flying crank ghost or something. Overall they are not bad lights especially if on a budget, they are definitely better than incandescent flood lights that is for sure. However, I will definitely be buying something else for next year.
Actually, the one I got has a big sticker on it that says "I light up blue", which doesn't seem to affect the light any so I just left it on. Of course, at the end of the season, it gets returned to the original box like all of my other lights so I always know what color it is.Oh and the blue lights and the green lights had a clear lens and you could not tell what color they were until you turned them on, so make sure to mark what color they are on the housing. The red light had a pinkish red tinted lens so that might be why the color is off and dimmer than the others.
Ah yes, that's right. They are clear lenses, I recall that sticker. I took it off, painted the housing black, and labeled it "blue". I would like to return everything to the boxes, but I find it easier to leave the bulbs in the fixture that I used them in. Makes for faster set up and tear down, also reminds me of ideas, such as "Oh yeah, I was going to clamp the UV light on my car etc...." I have a couple of those "clamp on" lights.Actually, the one I got has a big sticker on it that says "I light up blue", which doesn't seem to affect the light any so I just left it on.
