5 of 5 First Controller and first time using pixels November 15, 2021
Reviewer: Jason Joe from Beatrice, NE United States  
I did alot of research on doing Christmas lights with pixels using a controller.  I chose to go with holidaycoros system because I like the way their boards stack  and make things look neat and tidy.  I went with a hinkspix pro controller because I know I wanted to eventually add in smart long range recievers and it has its own built in stand alone mode.  After watching several videos while waiting for my controller to arrive the setup was a breeze.

One thing I would have changed is I would have just got the 700w version instead of the 350w version.  Even before I had any lights on my house I ordered a couple more props and strings of lights to add to it.  I decided that I should upgrade to a 2nd power supply to make sure it could handle the power.  It would have just saved me alot of trouble to just order the 700w version right from the start.

5 of 5 16 SPI Output + 4 Port Long Range Flex Expansion November 10, 2021
Reviewer: Danny Moore from Ashtabula, OH United States  
First of all the staff called back and was very helpful to talk with. He quoted me everything I needed and purchased it. After receiving my items and in a timely manner considering the time I ordered it I was pleased with how short the time it did take to receive them. The product was very easy to use and very well built. I couldn’t me more pleased and look forward to ordering more next year. This product works absolutely fantastic. The pigtails were labeled which was awesome and I didn’t have to do it. Just can’t say enough about the product and Holidaycoro. Thank you.
