It's easy to get too much with those superbright blues. When I did the first Visual Volume proto, I got the current setting too high. There are eight of those things on the VV, and in normal daylight it would hurt your eyes to look at it and you'd see a bright blue place on the ceiling. On a stage in a dark, smoky bar, they would have been practically pyrotechnics - and may have been dangerous to dark-adapted eyes. I had to cut them way back.

does anyone knows why full sized pots are better then the small ones, or there is no difference in functionality and durability at all??
The devil is always in the details. Anything bigger has the *chance* to be more durable to fumble-fingered humans if it's executed properly. Making things smaller without rethinking them for being smaller has the *chance* of being more poorly done.
As long as there is no mechanical abuse (i.e. big, heavy boots, etc.) small pots *can* be as good as big ones. They can certainly be as good as big ones made cheaply because they compete with small cheap ones.
Bottom line - there is no generalization you can make about big pots or small pots without more information like what company made them, how are they used, are they water tight (lots of little ones are, lots of big ones are not), are they used within their power ratings (little ones have lower power ratings), what materials make up the wafers and sliders, and all the rest of that stuff that goes into what makes something good versus junk.
Big vs small is not equal to good vs bad.
