I use a COB par (LEDJ brand from the UK) that is made in China that is one of the best led lights I have ever seen. it's rugged, well made and replaced some lights in my inventory from one of the above named manufacturers.

Which one? The 36w unit?

My experience with eight cheap fixtures - the red diodes in various sections on the circuit board would start to flicker and go out.  Under warranty, and until the seller cut us off, we went through 21 cans - and before we got cut off, we still had fixtures failing. No one ever did a failure analysis - but it seemed either bad soldering or a batch of bad red diodes. YMMV.

That's a pretty bad run Frank.

Across 40 disco/par led lights (maybe ~4000 leds in all?) I think I have three failed leds and a couple of blinky ones. Confined to two fixtures.

Yeah, Lyle.  I'm just lucky that way.  I didn't buy them, just got saddled with them.  Sometimes you just have to put your experiences on the fact pile, and move on.
