    I flipped my 3x2 P10 sign (exactly like that video) from P10's to P5's this year. The swap is easy as the P10's are the exact same physical size as the P10's so the existing enclosure could be used without modifications.

    The main reason was for the increased definition of fonts, particularly for Halloween. For Halloween, I like to use the fonts that look like blood dripping (Shlop, ) or other (Gypsy Curse) and they never looked good on the P10. With the P5's they looked great. Likewise for script based fonts. I use "Brush Script MT" to put "Happy Holidays!" at Christmas and it didn't look very good on the P10's. With the P10's, I generally ended up sticking with San-serif type fonts (Gil Sans mostly), but the P5's opened up a bunch of options.

    Thanks for that.
