    Default Price Reduced: GECE 50 pixel strands for sale (used)

    I am doing something new with my display this year and won't be able to use my GE Color Effects pixels.

    I have 64 strands of 50 pixels each. They have been run ~4hrs/night for ~4wks/year for 5 years. They are run at 50% intensity. I have logged and tracked failures, and it's pretty consistent at between 0.25%-0.50% per year. I replaced failed pixels by splicing in replacements, hand-soldered and double heat shrink sealed. The OEM controllers have been cut off to allow use of a single controller, and Meanwell power supplies. The current configuration utilizes (green) Cat5 cable with an RJ45 (Ethernet) connector for power and data; it can be cut off and replaced to fit your needs. The controller and Meanwell supplies are not for sale.

    I'd like to see these go to a good home where they can continue to be enjoyed. I have broken up the entire lot and am letting them go for $10/strand with a minimum of 2 strands per transaction.

    Edit: GECE pixels are 5v (OEM power supply provided 5.6v to be exact) and spaced at 10" pixel-to-pixel (reliably - I didn't have to measure & mark mounting locations on my tree, I just stretched the wire and everything lined up very nicely). They also use true #18 AWG wire; many other pixels claim #18 AWG, but are actually closer to #20 or less. They can be driven by SanDevices E68xx, Falcon, and Pixel Stick controllers (and maybe others as well).

    See pictures for bulb size/shape and splicing method used.
