Who ordered P10 modules on 11/11 at 50% off ??
« on: November 12, 2014, 06:31:36 PM »
Not hearing from anyone else, I ordered on my own.

$7.95 per module plus shipping still came to $15 each.  I've got 12 on the way. Planning an array of 8 or 9 or 10 for play/testing.

When David is done rewriting Nutcracker, we'll see what can happen.

I ordered a bushell, no shipping confirmation, but unfortunately for my pocket book, I spent 4 figures on 11.11 for more xmas stuff, some LED fixtures for my garage, some electronics and these panels.

I know some stuff. For example i know I don't know anything.

How do you get notified of this?  I get emails periodically but didn't hear about this.

When I looked on Aliexpress early in November, it popped up. Didn't think much of it.
Then Livermore-Dad mentioned it in an earlier post related to P10 panels

I don't recall actually getting a notification from Alibaba / Aliexpress.

So for me, its probably because I check this forum using Tapatalk at least 3 times a day and read almost every post.

That's how I saw it too...then on Nov 12 I saw this post and went crap I forgot!!! Oh well next year after the NEO comes out I'll make a small investment and make a tiny tune to sign with a few panels.

Surprise - doorbell rings and my P10 boards are here!  Ordered on 11/11, arrived on 11/17.
They appear to be very nicely made. Future project!

Nice someone upgraded to DHL or Fedex shipping :)

I did not ask or pay for better shipping. I was not in any hurry since I have nothing with which to drive these panels.

Ya missed a DHL shipment as well, not sure what it is, but would be awesome. Will see what it is tomorrow.

Couldn't help but lay out my P10 boards to get a feel for size. (then I realized, after putting them away, that I didn't include any reference items like a yard or meter stick :( )

I bought 12 of them, so the first picture is 3 panels wide (108 pixels) by 4 panels high (64 pixels).  (6912 pixels, 20,736 channels)
Physical dimensions are, therefore, 1080mm by 640mm.  (42.5 inches wide, 25.2 inches tall)

The second picture is just a closeup of mostly a single panel.

I looked at all of mine and there is some shoddy, quick work adding the terminal block in the middle, many are crooked or worse tilted backwards. I've got one board that has a broken capacitor (they don't send replacements of those), the others see okay, but I did get a bag of chips and stuff, guess these needs repairs..

But before I sign off, do we have anything that will run them, in order to run through and test them before sending the seller a note?

Thanks
Tory

And yes Capt that means I have some for you :)

I got some ribbon cables and power connectors but I did not get any chips and I didn't notice any anything out of place on the back but maybe I should look closer.
