    I wanted to do some low voltage path/flood lights outside my house and wanted some advice on good brands or online sources for good metal lights. I don't want really expensive ones but a step above Malibu/Big Box store kits.

    If you don't use all the incand. lights in the string the voltage to the remaining ones will be higher and so your lamps will burn out faster. The installation instructions are silent on this issue.

    I use a power resistor from an old TV set to reduce the voltage by 10% or so.
    10 ea. 4w lamps at 12v would need a ~0.3 Ω 6w resistor. You still get plenty of brightness.
