Hello all.

This may not be a nebula issue in the first place, but since im running my project on nebula i thought ill put it in here.
So i have a total of almost 12000 pixels (~400m) installed in a club, all driven with madrix professional and 10 nebulas. The leds installed are WS2812b and i have some really annoying problems with them. They are totally not reliable. For the first 4 or 5 months it was all ok but then they started to fail. Either one color, mostly green, stops to work or the whole led just quits, and then all the leds behind remain dark. I believe it is a manufacturing issue, since when i press on the led the signal passes through again.
I want to replace the whole installation and maybe someone here can point out their experience with digital leds. Nebula is capable driving all major chips so which one would you recommend and why? The powering system is 5V, and i'd like to keep it.

Thanks for your input!
