    Using 2811 in strip but for pixels with a 2 year warranty, these Tls3001 are worth every cent.

    IP68IP68IP68I learned the hard way this year the value of lights that are IP68. I bought IP66 for a mega tree and boy was I disappointed by the end.As for the lighting protocol, I started with 2801 but am going to try 2811 this year.But for me after going through the expensive school of hard knocks, IP68 is the number that matters most to me. Protocol, voltage, and form factor can all be easily addressed compared to water ingress in my opinion.

    I chose other because I use Minleon lights because they are made with superior quality compared to rays and made to last

    I chose other because I am having some made to my specs using a different pixel LED that I hope will work out better in the long run!
