Hi all,

For first display I went with 25 strand of ws2811 bullets on the edge of each upright column. Wanting to upgrade two columns to matrix for 2021. Locked in to 12v, and need to stay with 28xx varieties.
Looking for feedback on viewing/display experience for ws2811 bullets at 2 inch spacing versus 2815 strips. Viewing is minimum 10-15 metres from house.
Obviously the 2815 strips will have a greater density over the same area, but not sure which gives the better bang for buck.

I did a post about pixel spacing a while back that may assist in making a decision:

Thanks, that provides a useful reference point. 2815 strips will be even more dense than your 2" spacing but I like the effect.
