Is anyone going to have a group buy before the end of the year?

Most group buys are usually after Christmas usually in January.

I don't think I have ever seen a successful group buy for pixels except for small groups of friends who live close together and do not have to re-ship.  The double shipping kills any advantage to the qty buying.  Always best to buy in the first 3 months of the year when US vendors have pre-buy sales for the year.  And the vendors buy in way bigger quantity than any group buy.  But folks are always trying to find cheaper sources.  Good luck, but I would not hold my breath or wait to long to just get an order in someplace if you are trying to get stuff for this year.

After a last minute inventory, I found myself short by 600 pixels. Ray wu got them shipped in 8 days (now I wait for DHL).

Go!

In a few days, I will be posting for sale some 5 VDC and 12 VDC pixels... some new and some gently used.  All are WS2811.

Curious as to what the cheapest price folks have gotten from RayWu on leds? His prices always seem high compared to other places.

This year I purchased 8000 12mm bullet 5 volt LEDS (20 awg) for about $1400 by going straight to the manufacture in China. Only minor issues with a bulb going out here or there but never had a bad string. RayWu

Is the price about the same or cheaper than RayWU?

Ray IS a manufacturer. With shopping his would come out around there as well. Could probably get 18awg and pigtails though from him for around that.
