So... major bonehead move... it looks like I ordered the wrong pixel strings... and 48 of them to boot... When I ordered my "tester" strings earlier this year, I tried out 25cm (10") pixel spacing for these trees I intend to wrap. The 25cm pixel spacing wrapped the tree just fine, but I had too much voltage drop, so I intended to go with a smaller spacing and I was thinking about 15-17cm (6-7" basically). Well, for some reason that I can't even begin to fathom... I ordered 10cm (4") spacing... the standard spacing that Ray sells... These are the pixels: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/12mm-smart-LED-pixel-module-WS-2811IC-DC5V-input-50pcs-a-string-IP68-in-all-white/701799_683076629.html I just went out to start wrapping my trees tonight (there are 10 of them) and these strings just aren't going to work without a ton of cutting, splicing, soldering shrink-wrapping, etc... which I just don't have time to do. Has anybody ever tried to return stuff to Ray? I understand about the shipping being expensive, but at this point I don't care... The only thing custom about these was that I ordered them with the white 3-core pigtails. Thanks... Might as well throw this out there... anybody state-side want to buy these for some smaller percentage lower than Ray charges?
