    not big differences, but think if you use them often, heat could be a problem... + the heat from tv in addition doesnt make it better :)

    would there be a noticeable difference between the APA102s and 2812B for TV ambient lighting? just normal movie watching.
    already had bought the 2812B before i learned about the APAs, haven't installed them yet and just curious if i should save them for another project and get the better one for the TV. my 60" TV requires about 4 meters.

    I've been happy with the 1000+ ws2812 leds in my house.
