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 Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

    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.

        Comments about Chauvet Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

        This is a fun effect to add to events such as weddings or birthday parties. It does need to be used inside though - it does not have enough power to be very effective outside unless it is dark.

        I use it in DJ settings as I don't think it would incorporate well into a band light show since it is not DMX compatible. I do wish that it could change modes from the keyboard with out having the menu display with the laser.

        Great effect though!

            Cute light but would not use for any events other than kid's parties. A lot of the graphics are low quality. The light appears to be well built and it was very inexpensive but having a green laser only is limiting and the low scan rate causes a lot of flicker for larger graphics.

            Couldn't beat the stupid deal of the day. As reviews have stated, instruction manual is almost useless. Thank God for YouTube. Bought for the script capabilities. Basically, happy with that, but still want to know how slow down the time it changes from one scene to another. Keyboard is a little wonky, but eventually responds.

            Was looking for an alternative to getting a new backdrop made for upcoming tour dates. Didn't want something that takes 2 guys on ladders before & after every concert to deal with. I think this is going to work out pretty well! Just remember to plug it in, & turn it on BEFORE you plug in the keyboard!

            Thanks to the great people leaving videos on YouTube teaching what they've learned about how to properly use this laser, because the manual sucks!!! The engineers who built this really should have put a short series of videos online themselves. Hopefully their next model won't come with all the oversights, like poor documentation, & putting the infared sensor on the Front of the unit, & will be a bigger success!

            This is a decent laser, but is very aggravating to try to figure out. I'll only recommend this unit to tech savy gear heads who like a bit of a challenge, if you really expect to make the most of it!

                I purchased this as a Stupid Deal Of The Day. I knew that there were issues with the enclosed instruction manual, but for the price, what the heck. ABSOLUTELY check out Howie Darkstar's tips on setup & text. The manual truly does suck. Also, my keyboard is a little slow. I find I have to press on some of the top keys several times before it actually changes. Am still trying to figure out how to adjust the speed of how quickly the scenes change. If anyone can pass on that info to me - please do!
