design and properties

The Divoom Pixoo 64 is a 64 by 64 pixel LED matrix that measures approximately 23 cm square. The housing is made of durable black plastic. On the front of the device you'll find a large matrix of RGB LEDs that can be programmed to display a wide range of colours, patterns, images and information.

The Pixoo 64 is operated via a USB cable, so that it can be powered via any USB power supply unit. A USB-A to USB-C charging cable and a USB power adapter are included in the scope of delivery.

Pixoo 64 vs Pixoo Max vs Pixoo

The manufacturer Divoom offers three models of the Pixoo. So that you can see the differences, I have stored the corresponding properties in the table.

Fields of application

An LED matrix like the Divoom Pixoo 64 can be used in many different ways. Here are some examples that I've personally seen other people do:

  • Display of pixel art (pixel art)
  • decoration in the house
  • Display of social media followers and subscribers (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc.)
  • representation of KDA value in games
  • Display of a ticker
  • show animated GIFs

The device can even be supplied with its own data from the computer using a Python script. I have for example in a video by TechPirat seen that he announces the current Tibber electricity price via this display in the house, so that his wife, for example, is also informed whether it is currently cheap to turn on the washing machine. The device is therefore open for your own applications and not a closed system.

Price

The Divoom Pixoo 64 is a high-priced gadget at well over 100 euros, but if you don't want to build it yourself with a pure LED matrix and a Raspberry Pi, you'll pay more. You can find the current price here in the Amazon product box:

criticism from users

As good as the display itself is and how varied the possible uses are - there is also criticism of the Pixoo 64 and it should also be mentioned here. I'll work through the points of criticism in bullet points. Please keep in mind that the points of criticism were only mentioned by individual people and are therefore not things that all users find problematic.

  • Apparently the app isn't very good and often loses connection on both iPhones and Androids - at least when it's useful. In my opinion, the reason could be that it works with a mixed WLAN network (5,8 and 2,4 GHz), but the Pixoo only connects with 2,4 GHz.
  • Poor WiFi connection was actually mentioned more often.
  • The setup is not very easy.
  • Every now and then the display comes on at night and then lights up the entire room.
  • The app has poor translation and is not intuitive to use.

Conclusion

In summary, the Divoom Pixoo 64 is an innovative and versatile LED matrix suitable for a wide range of applications. Designed to be both functional and visually appealing, it's sure to put a smile on your face.

Whether you use them for home decoration, for gaming, for your YouTube studio or for party lighting, the Pixoo 64 is an excellent choice.

The use in the in-house YouTube studio should be an obvious thing, because that's where the Pixoo 64 ad is actually not infrequently seen.
