Pixel Supplier Suggestion

I'm looking for a suggestions for a good reliable 12V pixel brand.

Our company spent thousands of dollars this year to replace our aging 12V red, white, and blue Rextin pixels with black Alling brand 12V pixels with Ray Wu connectors. We thought this would improve the set up and quality of our show, but these pixels have consistently failing after only a couple hours of use. The quality of the pixels we received is horrible, and we don't want to repeat this incident next year.
 
We originally were going to order pixels in bulk from RGBMan, but the lead time was too long for us to get them in time to assemble our elements for this year. Has anyone here used Ray Wu connector pixels from RGBMan and can comment on there quality? Or does anyone here have suggestions for a more reliable 12V pixel?

I have had issues with Alling not holding up as well.  I usually get them direct from Ray Wu https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1100403118?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000061.1.356c5c778vbEBS

As a general rule of thumb most of my pixels came direct from Ray Wu.  The last batch of 3,000 I bought in 2020 had a higher failure rate than I had seen in the past - but lots of people reported similar issues from almost every manufacturer during Covid.
If I need something in a hurry, I have used Wired Watts, and Holiday Coro (dumb strips only) without any issues.
Always buy spares and mark the packages so you know which prop those pixels are for.  That way you will have spares from the same manufacturing batch - yes, there are differences between batches.
Using LOR (mostly SuperStar) for all sequencing - using FPP only to drive P5 and P10 panels.

I have a 1000 node matrix using RGBMan pixels that has been running great for several years.  All of my pixels use RayWu connectors.
