    Anyone have any experience with the difference between the C9 bulbs that have the 8mm bullet node vs those that have the two pieces of 5050SMD. I'm trying to decide whether to go with RayWu's epoxy filled version which are the based on the 8mm nodes or with HolidayCoro's Pixabulbs. There is a $15.00 per string difference. Curious is if there are any other advantages or disadvantages other than price.

    Thanks.

    I would think the HC Pixabulbs with 2 LEDs would be brighter than the one 8mm bullet. The Pixabulbs may draw more current, but you'd need to check the specs of the Ray Wu C9 bulbs, which may mean more power injection requirements? Generally HC are more expensive than Ray; but what would be the difference in shipping costs? Here in Aus shipping for either is expensive, but HC may be cheaper than Ray in USA?

    Ray Wu all the way, the nodes are extremely bright. you can get the nodes from other vendors on aliexpress for cheaper than ray but the shipping is far longer.

    extra waterproofing with the epoxy fill. Go with Ray, but you will be waiting this time of year.
