OK, here is deal on the Scorpion Script Laser....I'm very happy with my purchase and I purchased it as a Restock and I received a really good price !!....I wanted something unique for the various Bands I work with, e.g., like putting their Name up on the Ceiling or Wall and posting various Messages during the Show....I typically work in various club settings...I pre-programmed 10 "messages", e.g., "BREAK TIME", "GOOD NIGHT", "ROCK N ROLL", "ONE MORE SONG", etc,....I also typed in variouis messages on the fly during the show.....It was a Huge Success on New Years Eve !!....There are also 10 AUTO Built In Script messages, e.g., Happy New Year, Happy Birthday, etc, and there are a few built in Gobos......If you find a good position to aim it -and- then adjust the SCRIPT SIZE (with an adjustment screw on the back), it will do the Script just fine....I had mine about 20 feet from the Ceiling...I had alot of fun with it and the Band & Audience really enjoyed it alot....I received alot of compliments...Once I figured out how to use the keyboard quickly, it was a breeze to program and use on the fly.....Again, I received a really good deal and will use this at every show......It is very light and can be hung & aimed easily....At this price point don't expect a Laser that would cost 3 to 5 times more, but you will be able to add SCRIPT at your SHOW if you set it up properly.....Have Fun....

The premise for this unit is great...customizable text laser. The possibilities are endless. Reality is, however, sobering. There are a few things that prevent this from being all that it could be.

* The laser is simply not that bright, even with fog it does not stand out like one would expect.

* No DMX

* It only holds 9 text messages with a maximum character length of 14 characters. That's poor in and of itself, but making it worse is that it does not lend itself to changing on the fly. Doing so is too cumbersome such that it looks really awkward...not smooth and polished for live performance.

* The remote was spotty at best.

* Pre-loaded scenes were OK, but nothing to get excited about and not customizable.

I'm a fan of Chauvet and recently bought two Swarm 5s, and they are great. This, however, I had to return. Version 2 is worth waiting for.

Comments about Chauvet DJ Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

First of all, just seventy-nine Deal. I didn't really need this, but thought I'd give it a shot. When I received the item, I unboxed it, and I tried to figure it out without reading the instructions. Lights came on and did it's laser thing. Laser was bright (lit it up in my living room). So now I try to change things and figure this out. Open the instructions, flip though the pages, and decide to read the thing. Warnings, warnings, etc. OK, the part where I was going to configure this came up. One page. No help at all. After letting it do random things on the ceiling for about ten minutes., I put it away and haven't looked at it since. Bottom line: I have to stop impulsive buying of things I don't need.

Comments about Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

I am very pleased with the laser. The graphics and text features are a terrific addition for any dj. The only negative is with the instruction Manuel. It provides inadequate instructions on how to use the text functions. I had to call a musicians friend customer service representative and we figured it out together.

            With preset images it worked well and was kind of fun. But, when I put text in it flickered too much to be useful. The controls are awkward at best and don't seem to work well.

              Comments about Chauvet DJ Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

              I used this Chauvet in a High School Musical that we put on. The device worked great. I am sure that I could have gotten a lot more out of it, if there was a decent user manual for the product. I basically had to look up on Youtube how to get the product to work. It looked great in the performance. Just wish I could have learned a lot more about it for better results. You can hear the fan a little if you are running it close to you, but it did not cause any distraction to the audience. In a club setting you would not hear it at all. I used it in a theatrical production, so that's the only way I noticed the fan. Other than that this product is good.

              I purchased this through the SDOTD so I wouldn't spend more on it than that....it is cumbersome to transport the keyboard/extension along with the light and the overall effect of this laser light is mediocre at best and the instruction manual is terrible. Some of the presets are okay for holidays, but the patterns are a little underwhelming...the remote also doesn't respond well unless you are in front of it.

              Verified Buyer

              Comments about Chauvet DJ Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

              I wanted to use this to program our bands name and some pictured and included effects to show behind us when we perform. The flickering was horrible and I could not get it to stop even though in the demos some items are solid. It always show a bunch of designs moving and flickering. Unable to reduce the number or stop the flickering. Text shown in the demo has several font designs and some that appear to draw the letter one at a time but I was unable to make that happen.
              I would like to find an inexpensive product that would allow me to control the flickering and use the fonts in a stationary font to be easily read.
              I am sure the unit works as it was intended to but I either misunderstood the decription or it does not do all that is claimed.

                    The owners manual is totally a waist of paper. It took many searches of YouTube to start to figure out how to make this work. How hard would it be to correctly describe how to make the text flow (scroll) this is the feature that I would think most of us bought this for. Second would be the loop.

                      The flashing starts after text goes beyond a few characters and is unavoidable. It doesn't ruin the effect for me. I have liked using it in my gigs to flash my name across a wall.

                            Not sure if I received a repacked one from Musicians Friend, but the one I received already had a text in there. The fan won't shut off and I only find one preset screen. The manual and in other reviews states sucks and is very basic not explaining step by step instructions.

                              I work in private clubs where there is "zero" stage lighting, I use this light with an American DJ light and cross them to add a nice pattern on the ceiling. When you figure out how to program it adds an nice effect, If you watch videos on Youtube you can pretty much figure this light out.

                                You might need to go onto YouTube for figuring out how to use the light at first but its simply and it comes with alot of preset pictures and shapes and good for holidays
