    Yup (well, not from that specific vendor).

    They’re easily controllable.

    I have some of the AP106 variant and they seem to work fine (also have some of the larger 8mm versions)...
    A potential caveat is that they *should* have a 0.1uF decoupling cap added to each LED...
    YMMV.....

    That is good to know thanks . I will add them to my next revision of the address circuit boards .

    I hear you there .I have procrastinated on outside chores also as the low temps/wind/rain so far this year don't add to the fun and provide the perfect excuse .

    Thank you Bob for providing these pixel-leds so I could get an early jump on testing . These are great for building custom props and pcb related project . Now I will have a dozen more incomplete endeavours .

    A couple of things to note is pinouts vary and color order needs to be factored . I will be increasing my order on these and converting my address numbers to support them . Also need to find an 8mm four legged part to for fritzing.

    It appears that a 75R is required on each Di also.
