Anyone able to provide feedback on these?, clones? worth it? not worth it?

I am interested to hear what people have to say about these, such a great price. I want to use the 12mm bullet pixels like these for exploding stars.

They look really nice in the antistatic bags next to my desk :).

I haven't done anything with them yet so I am interested if anyone with more pixel knowledge has to say about them :)

Open the darn bag already! :freak:

Are they properly sealed at the base or can you spread the wires at the base and see gaps or even bare board?

Pictures?

Okok... I tried to take some close ups of them for u ;)

They look pretty well sealed.

For those used to pixels and rain problems: I was wondering if this is what they all look like and I should still be doing waterproofing steps?

I think you are right, they are 2801 (4 wires) - 2811 have only 3 (no clk)
