It is not clear from the eBay ads that there are several different variants of LED strip lights. While they all (kinda) work the same, there are differences.
Some are weatherproof, some are waterproof, some are made from 5050 type LEDs and some have a different type LED called a 3528.
They all will work, so you did not "do wrong."
I like the 5050s because they are brighter.
