WS2801 Led strip Color Range

Hi all!

I am testing one of this and i’m using the Adafuit’s 2801 Library.
When i set a pixel to RGB (0,0,0) the led is OFF, ok. But when i change
it to just RGB (1,1,1) the led is too bright to be just the first gray value…it’s
like the light at the half of his light capability or a little less…

Should i add a resistor or something?
i added a illustrated example.

Thanks in advance!

That looks about right.

(1,1,1) is quite bright, yes. There's not a lot you can do about it when you're using 8-bit PWM (eg. the WS2801).

:(

can you reccomend a better addressable strip? Thank you

eldany: can you reccomend a better addressable strip?

I don't know any.

You could try toggling between (0,0,0) and (1,1,1), that would give you half the brightness.
