    Hi all

    I had ordered GS8208 strip from Ray but he has just come back saying there is issues with the batch he got and we would have to wait at least another month to get more, therefore he suggested the WS2815. I have told him to go ahead with it (getting 100 rolls of it).

    Can someone remind/tell me what the differences are? I am getting the 30px/m stuff. I asked if it was cuttable every pixel and he said yes.

    I have googled as much as I can on it thank you orchidman. I am looking for someone who actually has the strip, I assume you do not?

    no I don't but from what I have read is that the ws2815 is n updated version of the gs8208 and is also more reliable and also cheaper as it now more common

    Yeh, Ive had discussions in chat with regards to the cutting of the strip, I just cant remember if it was the WS2815 that when cut less than 0.5m it has to be powered from the other end type situation.
