Hi All, I'm finally getting around to buying the pixels for my pixel tree (late I know). I'm tossing up between the round string ones like this....

Or the square ones like this....

Does anybody see any issues with either of these or should I be going for more expensive ones for better longevity?


Also, how does one identify which wire connects to ground, clock, + and - on the black/white wire pixels?


Thanks :)

Regarding identifying which wire goes where, when you get your lights, you will be able to see the labels on the circuit board of each light.
