    If I already have an Arduino Uno, should I get the ws2812b and use the Arduino? Or should I buy the more expensive apa102? Is it worth nearly 3x the price of the ws2812b?

    If I'm getting apa102, I can only get 60led/m.
    But with ws2812, I can get 144led/m for the same price as apa102 60led/m

    Thanks

    I can't really recommend more than 60 led per m.
