    Maybe I'm being a little overly cautious with the jump to pixels, especially hearing others failures with water ingress and was wonder if anyone has used the 5050 modules in a "direct exposed" setup. Many of these modules are driving the colors in coro related elements.

    Was thinking of using these around the windows and garage door.

    Cost wise they are comparable to the Technicolor pixels and appear to have a stronger track record and sealed very well.

    Have anyone used them as part of a matrix or mega tree??

    In have used this type of module on my roof tiles for 3 seasons and all ive ever lost was over that time was 5 modules out of 600, the resin filled modules seem to have decent weatherproof properties.

    But if I was going to do a matrix, outlines or a 2D ray tree then i would be using the 12vdc 2811 strip with silicone tube coating as this offers the best value and is easy enough to work with and mount to frames of conduit for windows and such or lengths of conduit for your outline. Effectively one module is the same as 1 pixel in a 12vdc strip

    Most of my display is made up of 12vdc 2811 strip and these modules
