Curious as to what data there is out there on the various differences between using ws2811 chip with 5050 leds and using the ws2812(B)? The ws2812 is pretty much the combination of the 2811 ic and 5050 leds into a single unit (basic although I'm pretty sure that there are other factors in it as well)! Has anyone tested ws2812 or know of any fairly reliable strings using them that a person can pick up and play with? I would think that this would be a more stable and fairly robust way to package the integrated circuit and led into a single form as well as making both pixel strips and strings a bit more compact. Also the improvements in the 2812B for better structure for better heat dissipation and reverse protection on power all help. Is this something that we see as overtaking the ws2811 strips we use now and should one wait to use the ws2812B in a display rather than buy the 2811 stuff now? I included a .pdf on the 2812 vs. the 2812B for your pleasure! I think that personally I would rather use the ws2812B for my start into pixels in my display if I can so that is why I am asking those of you who are more up to date on this stuff than I am.
