Thanks Lishfish.....This way works out cheaper through the same seller (GST charges)
Thanks for the info Lawrence,Thanks for sharing
One reason I have continued to purchase pixels from Ray Wu is his ability to make up custom count and custom spacing and also custom lengths between the connector and first or last pixels to suit my layout and props.
For example I ordered 8 x 48 count pixel strings to suit the 8 x Boscoyo Chromaflakes and this saved me a heap of time not having to cut and shut the standard length strings etc to suit these props.
Also Ray Wu (or other direct suppliers) come with the waterproof pigtail connectors if requested.
I also requested custom 2000mm input lead lengths for the pixel strings I used for our Megatree, this enabled me to connect the pixels strings directly to the pigtail outputs from my pixel controller located at the base of the Megatree and this saved me having to use short extension leads.
So I suppose its a bit of balancing act, yes cheaper pixels which may require a bit of time to make up to your desired length / count and also fitting waterproof connectors vs purchasing custom made strings to suit your props and thus saving a considerable amount of time (well for me it was a time saver).
This just my thoughts and thanks again for sharing the link.
