    If you have them in hand, try them and see what happens. One obnoxious aspect to all of those pixels is that the label says that all three wires (power, ground, data) have the same color insulation.

    Yes I will tomorrow when I get to work. I?m building the controller at work. I was just curious on others experiences with them if they had them.

    I agree having all wires being black is a pain for identifying.

    I like all black or all green as opposed to a mixed color even though it take a bit more attention to detail .
    Until you have to repair them.

    I don't have any direct experience but the APA102 is a clocked pixel with a different protocol. I don't see it listed on F48 specs but it could have a compatible protocol.
