    In another thread it was said that this year the Ray Wu pixels are bad and caught fire in several instances... I was going to buy from Ray but now I am not so sure about that decision. I still might buy the xConnect pigtails.

    Mattos is suspending all pixel sales until the quality goes up, i guess Spicer just had a fire on his roof caused by bad pixels.

    I have the same confusion regarding pixel source. Spending a lot of time lurking here, and no one seems to agree on where to buy this year. Before 2020, there was some strong agreement that Ray was the best source, but after a few quality issues (which may or may not have been resolved, depending on who you ask) that opinion seems to be iffy at best. Hoping it doesn’t keep more new shows from popping up in 2021. Best of luck, and I’ll be following this to hear more opinions.

    I agree. I keep seeing people posting multiple sources, but most of them are completely sold out or people won't give a clear answer on whether they are trustworthy or not. It's frustrating.

    There are a number of sources listed because we are all encouraged to treat all the vendors as fairly as possible and not just pick one favorite. Each vendor has their pros and cons and reading through these forums will give you an idea on who the "best" might be.

    Everyone is sold out right now due to the holiday season and the last-minute buying that takes place. It will take some weeks for the retailers to replenish their stock and the vendors can only build and ship so fast.

    Many of the vendors and retailers will start announcing 2021 "pre-sale" events, where you can get decent discounts on items. However, know that these events sometime result in you not getting items until April, or May, or even June because it's a very large order that has to get manufactured, packaged, then shipped back to the US, and finally orders are divided up and sent to customers. Some people, like myself, order a few hundred dollars' worth, and there are some in this community that order custom items that result in several thousand dollars.

    Lastly, if you decide to order from the Chinese vendors directly, know that they shut down their manufacturing for the Chinese New Year, so any orders between now and mid-Feb could take over a month to arrive, and that's *after* the festivities end.

    Most people are just now taking down their displays and assessing what needs to be replaced, what new items they want, and doing repairs. If you have specific questions, don't hesitate to ask as this community is very helpful. But, it helps if you have at least an idea of what you want to do and not just say that you want to build a display. I highly recommend that you look up 'Aus Chistmas Lighting 101', quickly join/register their site, and read through the manual you get access to as it answers a bunch of questions and helps you zero in on what you want to accomplish.

    Welcome, and good luck!

    I will just add that almost all "US pixels" can be traced to China and less than a handful of suppliers. What is nice about buying from US suppliers (if you are in the US) is that some of the money stays here.

    We don't have a Consumer Reports for pixels so be sure to report back when you get yours and let us know how they work out.
