They look pretty bright, and spread fairly well.  I can get maybe 2' back, maybe 30" on my house before I have to cross the sidewalk.  I thought maybe with some mini trees I might be able to hide them behind those (the big aethers), but I also wanted some color spots on the soffits as well.

Are they this one?

He didn't have those when I ordered.  I bought:

which I THINK is the same thing with just different connectors.

Great explanation Dan.  Does dmx need to be "terminated" at last controller?

I hope not.  I didn't.  :-)    It worked OK for me.

Do you think there some flexibility in terms of current?  IE using a 300ma CC board for 350ma leds?

I have no idea on any of that.  You'd have to fire a note off to Ray or something.  I've only used the DM-103 which allows 2A per channel, but on my mega-pumpkin, the largest channel (outline), only draws .6A.  With the entire thing (all 9 channels) on, it draws just over 1A (24v).      The other places I've used them have drawn even less.
