    @angus40 thanks. That seems about twice the price what you paid ($20/200 pixels or $0.1/pixel), though.

    Oh sorry did you want Pixels on strings or individual pixel leds ?

    Here is what this post is referring to and what I purchased ->

    Ok, got it. I am looking for pixel strings. I need to place an order in the range of about 2k+ pixels. I know that's small for most of you but I am just starting out. It looks like that will set me back about $300 ($150 for 1000 pixels). This hobby is not cheap. But I like it...

    Hey Munu,

    I too am just starting out and had great luck with RGB Man (https://www.rgb-man.com/) I was able to take advantage of the pre-season sale so the price per string was a little lower however I was ale to get free shipping when purchasing my first 1k lights. I was also easily able to add a PSU, xconnect pigtails and extensions making it a one stop shop for the most part.

    Worth checking out

    I've noticed a wide range of shipping costs for the exact items from one vendor to the next on Ali, as well as a wide range of product cost. Sometimes the product is cheaper, but shipping cost is higher, sometimes vice versa. You just have to look around for the best deal.

    Hello. I am a first time poster but I have been lurking in the forum now and then. Just wanted to comment about Ray Wu. I finally decided to try the direct from China ordering route and got a quote from Ray Wu for 7300 pixels (73 strings of 100 pixels each) and he quoted much lower shipping than was shown on the Ali Express site and said it would be on a "fast" boat from China. He verified payment received on 2/2/2021. I still don't have the lights. I had to email him repeatedly and it finally shipped (at least that is when UPS tracking showed a label here in the states) on 3/24/2021. Chinese New Year started on 2/12/2021 this year and ended on 2/26/2021 so I don't know why it is taking so long. Just wanted to let others know about my experience. I hope to have the UPS tracking update someday and I really hope there are no problems with the shipment because this turnaround is ridiculous.

    Just to update my comments about my Ray Wu order above - I received the pixels today! They hit the good old USA on Monday and were delivered to me today on 4/23/21. So this order only took almost 3 months from payment verification to delivery. For those who might order and use the "fast" boat from China shipping he offers it is about a month from time of shipping. That wouldn't be bad for the savings if it would ship sooner.

    I ordered directly from ray wu about three weeks ago. Got confirmation from fedex a day ago that they had my shipment and it is headed this way.


    2021 New Tune-to sign. New 40x27 matrix at the house. Retiring the Strip based matrix. Updating some of the old window frames to the new house. Adding two new songs.
    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.
