    Hi,

    Has anyone used any of the following pixels?

    http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/DC5V-WS2811-LED-smart-string-addressable-with-all-BLACK-wire-IP68-rated-epoxy-resin-filled-50pcs/701799_32259805463.html

    or

    http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/DC5V-WS2811-LED-smart-string-addressable-with-all-WHITE-wire-IP68-rated-epoxy-resin-filled-50pcs/701799_32281644087.html

    Both are rated at IP68.

    I am wanting to put these on the roof. I require about 150 metres in total, and want to know if anyone has had water ingress issues etc.

    I was looking originally at the 3 led pixels, but 150m would be about $380 US + delivery.

    To do it in strip would be $600 US + delivery.

    To do it in the above will be about $150 US + delivery.

    Any thoughts or opinions would be welcome

    I used these for my mega tree. No issues with waterproofing. The 3 led modules are even better with waterproofing and give out more light. Strip will look the best.
