    Default Is this a good deal?

    Showed up in my inbox this morning. I was thinking about building a panel. Has anyone used this brand?

    Low resolution and relatively expensive. I'd keep looking. For comparison https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3263...5ff94c4dazNnLD

    I am in the process of removing all WS2812 based strips from my show due to reliability issues. 19 out of 20 issues were the result of delamination of the pixel from the PCB due to heat (and I am in the northeast). Not sure I would go with that panel.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    It depends on how you are going to use it, the ones you linked to on Amazon are flexible, the ones linked on Aliexpress are not

    Thanks. That is definitely less expensive.

    Really just a countdown sign to start. I think the AE one will be fine.
