    HI all,

    last season (my first) I entered the game with a 12 strant strip tree (like the CCR trees) using Ray's
    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/5m-led-digital-strip-DC12V-input-WS2811IC-256-scale-10pcs-IC-and-30pcs-5050-SMD-RGB/568458133.html

    For a first year I was happy with the setup, but felt disappointed with the quality of the 'light' in the non RBG colours. I also had a few pixels drop the R over the 32 show days I had.

    So i plan to re-use those strips for other things (around windows or smaller aspects of my show) but want something higher quality for the Mega tree (main attraction)

    So what are other people using that gives the best overall quality, price is not a big issue, i don't mind forking out for a better product; but I do wish if possible to stay with 12V and WS2811. Although i can also fully support WS2801 if i need to.

    Thanks all :)

    I can't comment on quality but I'm waiting on 12 x 2.8m long strips of these

    Not sure if I'll have an answer about quality until after this years show but I can definitely comment on a visual inspection.
    I also have 8 of these on order as well

    from just reading the description seem to be slightly better quality.
