Editor's Notes

January 07, 2021:

Not only useful for retail businesses and restaurants, these programmable signs are also ideal for trade shows, conferences, vehicle identification, or even as art displays, and use LED pixels to create text, animations, and images of varying quality.

In this update, we added several models to the list to reflect more versatility in usage. The Wesiri Flexible, for example, is able to be bent or shaped around surfaces and can be linked together in series, however, it does need an external controller such as a Raspberry Pi. The MaxLit Business, on the other hand, is very easy to program using a downloadable app and a separate remote control provides extra functions like setting brightness levels and selecting when the text should be displayed. The Innovative Divoom Pixoo was included as its multiple functions allow it to be used as a sign, a clock, a temperature display, or as a medium for creating pixel art.

Many of the available options are foreign-made, which can make things difficult when it comes to programming the unit. As a result, ease of use and quality of instructions factored highly into the results, nearly as much as image clarity and versatility.
