Those boards look very good. I wish the website had more detailed specs. However they are cost prohibative. That would be $240 vs. $82 for 12 mean well buck boost and 2 6up boards. My wife is understanding, but there are limits...Bridgelux design engineering told me I was more than safe by limiting available current to 1200mA per strip. Of course I won't drive them that hard except on a limited duty cycle.

Boards are dual drivers.... $120 for 12 drivers (2x6)
Key is current adjust-ability..

top current is 1000mA..


Just another FYI if you get boards w/ pull down resistors you need a controller..
3 boards 12 drivers $135..

Pull downs are jumpered so removable..

note there are "custom" boards coming up..

I'll have to go back to site for Blue device. I must have misread.
Wow I really like the 8up board.So much that I signed up on the site. Seems a like a great DIY community. Oh and another website has the ldd1200 for 5.59 each. And the 6up boards are 14 bucks a pop from the manufacturer. I Chased parts for a long time

LDD-H drivers are only $4.99 at LEDsupply-


Those PCBs at R2R are my little pet project, I wanted lots of options and something "different" so started drawing them up. Board cost can be very competitive if you buy 10+ at once from PCB houses directly
