    These appear to be the same pixels only 1 has pigtails attached and the other doesn't. Both are listed as ws2811, IP68, 18AWG black wire. Both priced the same at $25.00. I've noticed on others that the ones with pigtails are usually a buck or 2 higher. Any reason why the ones with pigtails are the same price as the ones without? Is there some difference I'm not seeing?

    Thanks.
    It could be me, but I don't see the pixel to pixel spacing indicated on one of those.........could that be the difference? Make sure you get the spacing to meet your needs.

    Looks like they both have a "Standard wire length" of 100mm which I'm assuming is the spacing between the pixels. 100mm = 10cm = 3.9in. I'm good with that. I'm still don't see a difference between them. I'm wondering if it's just a mistake in the pricing. I'm asking just to make sure I'm not missing something stupid on my part before I place an order.

    The ones in white are $1 more with pigtails added. Same for the squares in black.

    Yes, Thanks! I've seen that mentioned numerous times and was planning on contacting him directly.

    remember if you buy pigtails to get connectors/extensions at same vendor as our suppliers still have have not standardized the plugs.
