2811 5050 Modules

Maybe I'm being a little overly cautious with the jump to pixels, especially hearing others failures with water ingress and was wonder if anyone has used the 5050 modules in a "direct exposed" setup.  Many of these modules are driving the colors in coro related elements.

 

Was thinking of using these around the windows and garage door.

 

Cost wise they are comparable to the Technicolor pixels and appear to have a stronger track record and sealed very well.

 

Have anyone used them as part of a matrix or mega tree??

The Technicolor pixels seem to have been improved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iq13RMdlpu4

I haven't been following the TC debacle very closely, but I just noticed that video was from March of last year - long before most of the reported pixel failures from this past season.

Youtube shows it was published in May of this year, so I thought it was pretty current.

Sorry, typo on my part.

My point still stands though - most of the failures were found in Oct-Dec 2013.  So it's not like this is showing a newly redesigned product that prevents those failures.
