Fourth one December 3, 2016
Reviewer: DLB from Wheaton, IL United States  
Excellent help and fast delivery.

This is the fourth controller I've purchased from Holicay Coro, but the first I'm reviewing.

Only two issues:

DHCP gets turned if it can't initially connect to the network. This requires me to go out to reset this whenever power is recycled. Won't be a problem if you use a static IP but is a problem if you reserve the IP. Many networks no longer work with static IPs.

Secondly, I'd like more flexibility of nulling out  pixels other than at the ends.

Great value and great company.

Excelent October 3, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Slovakia  
Works great with my WS2811 pixels ( http://shop.ledco.sk/dmx-spi-digitalny-rgb-led-pixel-ip68-ws2811-12v) and software like Jinx, Glediator etc.
