    ^^ Standard pixels aren’t the best wall washers simply because they aren’t very directional. They put out light in a 150-ish degree hemisphere around the light, and while there will be a minor washing effect, it doesn’t compare to a true washer. You’d want a wall washer to have a reflector or narrower viewing angle to project the light in a particular direction.

    If you are talking about the NodeMCU from jboards, then they run just like a pixelstick, I got 4 of them.

    I am using Nodemcu's, and they work great. I've used them with 12mm pixel bullets and the 5050 rectangle pixel modules with no issues at all. I have not run more than 100 pixels yet. I don't know why someone would buy the other pixelsticks that cost $25 when you can build one with a Nodemcu or D1 Mini for about $10 or less. I'm brand new, so there's probably a good reason for these more expensive pixelsticks that I just have not learned about yet.

    They both use the exact same firmware, big difference is you can program the node mcu with out additional programmer. I ran 325 pixels off one of my node mcu's at 35% without power injection.
