    Guys, if any of you ordered these can you send me an IM or email. I am gathering info to get to Ray, there seems to be a problem with the design in these things. I have failures all over the place in the order I placed with him.

    Thanks.

    2500 of them here and not one doa. Don't have them all on the house yet so still a chance of something dying but so far so good here with the technicolors

    I ordered 1700 of them on 100 count strings and I did 12 hr burn-in tests on each string and not one dead pixel.

    I have 2000 in a matrix and have all sorts of problems, some of which may be data related. But as soon as I turn on the PS some start flashing blue, others are white. When I run the show, I have i whole string that doesn't light up, 2 strings which partly light up and others that just flicker. I have checked grounds and changed data speeds and cant work it out. Before I put the matrix up I had some pixels that I cut out and replaced, but I still cant work out if its a quality issue or just my setup.

    Cheers

    Luckily I ran half my peak with my old 2801's..I have an extra string that I am going to put up on the front of the house that has the technicolor pixels..don't have enough to do the roof outline...but having the front done will be better than nothing at this point...trying to salvage my show however I can...
