Do not buy.

If maker and seller don't provide support and answers this is not the companies you want to deal with. Their support has told us you never want to consider them again.

Dont advise if you dont know what you're talking about

In reply to: Do not buy.

the WS2813 is a non-proprietary integrated LED addressing and driving chip

It is comparable to some one asking which "C++ compiler should i use" and you telling them "if C++ doesnt offer support their software you shouldn't use it..."
no one owns the Ws2813, therefore no one will offer support.

For an actually helpful response: You can build your own controllers using Arduino boards, this is the most cost effective solution. If you have a larger budget, there are many different 3rd party controller options available, Enttec is probably the most reputable. i would contact them if you go that way.

While I've helped with Arduino kits.

I find that vendors, makers and sellers often are more than willing to leave you without support.

I am not their support. I don't mind sharing a quick fix but in this topic feel free to help.

As to your reply, I know what I'm talking about. I've been doing embedded designs since about 1979. Today, I see a lot of sellers that need to also add support and/or field engineers.
