Ask ray for a quote. The shipping isn't what it shows on the site.
i see some people buy lights from this site DIYLEDEXPRESS.com rather than aliexpress.com have you had any experience from them? whats your opinion?

If you go the uSC and hub route you will be able to drive 16 uSC's with each hub and each uSC can drive 100 pixels without a problem. More with power injection. Used to be more but newer nodes from ray take more power.

You won't go wrong ordering lights from Ray.  Always email him with what you want and ask for a quote.  There is no penalty for asking for a better price once you get a quote.  I am a repeat customer and depending on what I am ordering and what time of the year I have gotten some discounts on per string prices and on the shipping.  YMMV.  I have received lights in about 10 days and as long as 24 days from the day I paid for them.

Since it is early in the year I would suggest you go ahead and buy 100 or 200 lights and give them a try before you start ordering large quantities.  Get used to the fact that ordering from China has a large shipping component.  I have just ordered 20 strings of 100 pixels and the shipping is $130.  It is what it is.
