Ignoring pixels and given a choice are 5mm LED light strings best for mini trees? Or M6 C6 or other size bulbs?

I use M5 exclusively and they look great, IMO. :)

I like 5mm best for a minitree.

I think it depends on the style and size of the tree. My 3' artificial trees use a mix of m5 and 5mm. My 4.5' trees (post and hook style) use C6. Both look good in the respective props.
I don't do tomato cage trees so I can't speak up there

What is a good bulb count for a ~2ft mini and for a ~4-5 ft. mini.

I'm planning on three channels/colors each tree.

I've used both M5 and C6. In fact, I have both styles on the same tree. ...gasp... Mine are a pretty good distance from the viewers, so the difference is indistinguishable unless you're looking really hard. I think the 5mm style would have worked too. :)

To each his own, but I have 30 trees. Each one has 200 each of 3 colors, for a total of 600 lights. I almost never have more than one color on at once unless I'm fading one color up while fading another down.

My 54" minitrees have 200 each of red, green and white. (600 per tree) All CDI C6. These are the big ones along the driveway.
My 3' minitrees have 200 red C6 and 200 5mm. These are in groups of 6 and 4 across the front of the house

There's some pics of my 54" trees from last year when they were just green at www.chuchla.com/Christmas.
