    RGB Configurator Spreadsheet

    This spread sheet will allow the comparison of the different controllers. Enter how many strings you plan on using, it will calculate the total cost for 6 different RGB controller systems. These are the five systems compared:
    1. Pixelnet using active hub
    2. Pixelnet using Zeus hub (does not need smart string controllers)
    3. J1sys ecg-p12r
    4. SanDevices E682
    5. Pixelnet board by dpitts/mykroft
    6. LOR Cosmic Color Ribbon
    7. Seasonal Equipment Rainbow Pixel Controller
