This thread will be about 2022 testing of the GS8208 based pixels and like Ryan's excellent thread some comparison numbers.
Please read all the great info in Ryan's thread for more than I will type up...
'5 volt versus 12 volt, which one do I choose?'
How many times have you seen someone ask the above question? More than likely they are not sure whether to buy WS2811 5V or 12V RGB pixels. Well how about a third contender, GS8208 12V pixels? Not all 12V is the same, as it turns out! Spoiler...
Made from 5mm corflute and 25mm conduit from Bunnings.
Holes were punched by a hot circle punch, this melted the edges which helped with rigidity.
This was made to align 12v regulated Ray Wu icicles to a grid for text and other effects.
Firstly, awesome community you have here lads!! Everyone is super helpful and keen for lighting madness!
Shoutout to @darylc who is a uber legend sending through a special edition F16v3 quick smart.
So anyway.... I've been reading, searching and attempting to answer my own questions...
