    Default ClubLasers Demo

    Great idea! Which model would you like to demo at SELEM?

    I think the best place for this is in the cafeteria. We can have it set up on a table and folks can plug their controller into it to see how it performs running their content. Probably best to do this on an ad-hoc basis though. I'll set up an area for this during load-in, and when Ryan arrives we can set the projector in place there.

    If people want to do a side-by-side comparison with their own projector(s), that can easily be done by simply placing the other projector next to it and running the same output to both units.

    Although I don't believe krisxone will be attending SELEM, his initial post was in reference to 3 watt RGB projectors from Able, Lightspace, and Goldenstar. So let's go with the 3 watt RGB. Unless anyone has other ideas.?.

    Yeah, I won't be there, and I'll likely have ordered one or the other by then. But would still love to see the comparison. I'd also love to see 5w units as I'm thinking about stretching the budget a bit and go for the 5w's since they're at a better value per watt.

    They are decent lasers, and as mentioned by someone else above, compliant for use in the US. I have multiple units including the Series 2 and 3. Someone else said they wouldn't put these up on the truss multiple times a week, and I'd have to agree. I also can see a slight difference between one of the series 2 units and another... slightly less bright. I also had one of the bracket tightening arms sheer off... just cheap. I also don't know who does the quality control... you can see the obvious spelling errors on the variance stamp...

    Just sloppy and considering that is screen printed onto every unit, I'd think they would be careful and scrutinize everything. They are NOT Kvant...far from it, but then again, they're not supposed to be. I think they wanted to create a budget line of lasers similar to the Kvant Clubmax line. Support is excellent and Pangolin is great to work with. It's not Pangolin but it sorta is since you buy from their people. They come shipped direct to you from China. Consider what you will use them for and buy accordingly. I only wanted an FDA certified product so I went with these for the smaller watt (<3w) small show units. For the price I paid, they are just fine, but for the bigger units I'll be going another direction. Hope this helps!

    I can tell you 6215s while very nice are no where near saturns in performance. Those saturns with the digital drivers blew me away last year. I plan to switch mine out as soon as possible. Earlier in the thread someone showed a pic and said which scanner. They look like 6800 knockoffs. Expect 30k if your lucky. No way will those do 60k. Iíve seen iffy 40k on new 6800hp with turboamps.

    Thought I'd also weigh in..

    I think it would be interesting to see these units at SELEM. I've been curious about these Chinese projectors for a while and I think as long as the projector is open for anyone to play with and units are not being sold/promoted at the event it should be fine.

    I am hoping to bring a Kvant Clubmax 3000 (Saturns) and would be happy to compare it. (though it's kind of pointless)

    So were there any of these units at SELEM?

    Yup. There were two and both were brand new. I want to say that one was a 5w and one was maybe 2w but I really donít remember. Maybe Ryan can weigh in.

    I didnít look at them for too long but LaserLotus played some content on them and the galvos wrecked it. One unit couldnít even display the brown on some tree trunks. Should be okay for basic beams though.

    Brown lasers are kinda elusive . .

    Not as elusive as black lasers

    Maybe I should clarify my previous statement. The green modulation couldnít go low enough to represent a shade that appeared brown in the software.
