AliExpress Nov 11th sale? Seems like there’s some sort of sale happening on the 11th. Anyone have any past experience or tips about this? Does Ray Wu’s store participate in this?

RayWu did not have these special discount :confused:

No experience or tips, but these are some of the deals I’ve found (all with free shipping). Anybody else have any better deals saved in their carts, waiting for 11.11?

I’m in. And these will replace the Adafruit versions exactly?

@Henry_Birdseye_Jr , if you get LEDs of the same controller type (APA102, LPD8806, WS2812, etc) as from Adafruit then it should work the same.
