    Not yet, but as they're based on WS2801 pixels they should do the job quite nicely.

    I'm going to throw a bunch into my next order to try out, as I have a 'blank' spot in my display that could use something like these :)

    I too and going to order 30 of them. But I'm having Ray use the 2811 module at 12v. This way I can place them directly on my mini trees that I'm going to be wrapping with 2811 pixels.

    i too have added them to my cart, will need Ray to do some special wiring for me, else I will have to cut and resolder the connections.. hmmmmmmm, probably safer for me to fo it anyway. :)

    might grab 1 or 5 sets of them

    heres the direct link for everyone

    might need to add a small bit of corro over the pixel though as it looks really bright in the centre, I would want a more even spread. But i guess trials will tell.

    FYI, Ray will do the same exact thing with the 3 core pig tails, 2811 module @ 12v for the same price. If that is what you are needing.

    That's cool I want the 2811. Everything else I have is 2811 so would be nice to have the 3 core piggies for everything.

    Any one tried putting 5 lights inside, individual controlled and then using coroplast to separate the segments, or is to too milky to do this?

    The standard star comes with a disc like LED module. You could ask Ray to just supply covers but I think the stars maybe to small to segment them. I did have 100 of them and they looked great. The milky part gives more of a glow. You can't tell the lights are on in the daytime even with your hands covering the star.
