Are you in the Netherlands? All the links are to ebay.nl
I am in the USA.
There is nothing in those auctions to indicate how #1 [5M RGB 5050 Waterproof 300 LED Strip light SMD] is different from #2 or #3. At least, #2 and #3 is differentiates by the description of WS2811 vs WS2812B
Nothing on #4 subject [Adafruit DotStar Digital LED Strip - White 144 LED/m - 1M - WHITE [ADA2242]] indicates that it is RGB, so if I searched for RGB, that auction would not show up.
I know this might come as a shock to some in the USA but other places exist.However you can get all the types in the USA.https://learn.adafruit.com/rgb-led-strips/overviewNote how the pictures show the same colour on all the LEDs on the reel.https://www.adafruit.com/product/1138Note how their are different colours on the same reel.https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-dotstar-leds/overviewNote how their are four connectors, power, data and clock.http://led-tronix.com/product/addressable-lpd6803-30leds-5050-led-pixel-strip-lights-12v-dc-waterproof-ip67/Note how it says "one pixel IC control three 5050 RGB"
Yes sir I am.Does not matter, all links are from international sellers in China. And they are the first I could find anyway so bad idea to blindly onder from those linksYes there is, it's the fact they don't mention a controller because they have none That's what makes them just pure RGB leds What can I say? China... If all subjects / descriptions would be perfect in the far east I would not spend hours looking for stuff sometimes.
I don't go buying things from eBay in the Netherlands.
it looks like the products are deprecated.
You guys could do people a favor if you actually created one page that describes these different LED strips.
My point is that it is not readily apparent to the casual buyer that there are 4(!) types of RGB LED strips as you and Grumpy_Mike claim show .
All confusing and not very clear that they are actually different - it may be that the Chinese sellers are not right with descriptions.
I still stand by my comments that when people are posting here about RGB LEDs, they are referring to the non-Adafruit variety and are ones with the included controller and that run on 5V different colors at the same.
Those are the ones I see most commonly on eBay.com
The analog stuff is deprecated. One color at a time. Ugh.
