    Default RAYWU has 2811 Pixels on sale for $6 per 50 nodes.

    Hey all I just noticed Ray has a promotion for 50 Nodes of 5V pixels for $6 bucks... I know lots of people prefer the 12v ones but he has these for more than 50% off right now!

    Better check with him on wire gauge......I'd be willing to bet they are either 20 or 22 gauge.
    Great price just be aware of sale items with thinner gauge wires.
    Thanks for heads up!

    I plan on getting a bunch of these for expanding my megatree and some pixel matrixes - both of which are dense and easy to power inject into to offset the thinner wire.

    22awg and 3" spacing, but useful for some folks. These have been on promotion for a couple years, not sure why.

    I emailed Ray for a quote for a bunch of them (thousands of pixels) and it came to less than $8 a string including shipping.

    Can't go by the aliexpress shipping, have to e-mail him for a "real" shipping quote.

    Ok 32 of them shipped is $268 Per Ray... if I want to do a 32 strand 360 Mega 50 lights a strip 50 on 1 side plugged to 50 on the oppisite side, and the 16 total strands plugged to a falcon at 50% brightness would that be a problem??? if not I am going to order.

    I wouldn't pay that. I had 60 strands shipped for 145 bucks from a different vendor. That shipping quote includes extra profit mark up, it really does. Cripes, I paid $595 for 3k 12v, 4" 20awg delivered. Well, if that's what you want. Another point, I run 800 pixels off ONE port, so connect them all, use one port, power inject, save the other ports for other props. That's what I would do. If not, you will probably be OK running it the way you mentioned, with a few extra power injection points possibly, but a waste in my opinion.

    Keep in mind.. at 5v (and 22awg wire) you'll have to power inject every 50 pixels.
