- User's Manual (Mar 7, 2016)
Someone mentioned the beam is narrow. I like to say it maintains it's beam. I've run into too many that can't do it and at 10 or 20 feet the lights blend and bleed together. This does like a pro light should and keeps it's beam tight.
On the con side, it doesn't produce a true white. It has a blue tint to it but I haven't seen a light that is under $200 that can produce true white so it's "normal" for it's price range, plus, in a bar, if people want white, they turn on the main lights. Another note...reds aren't as intense as others. Some lights have more red than green to balance out the difference but this doesn't. It's not bad. The specifications showed that they would be dimmer so I expected it.
I've been doing light and sound for 30+ years. I'm glad these are here. They keep up with lights that are twice as much. They are truly a great buy and addition to my system.
If I had my design wish, I would add the power daisy chain to it. I do have to make an extension cord with an outlet every 18 inches my lights have the plugin where I need it. Not a big deal but it would be nice to have so I can have better cord management.
PROS: Casing looks professional
Beam is contained and not washed out at 20 feet.
CONS: No daisy chain for power
RGB isn't uniform. Red is the lowest brightness of the color
"White" has a blue tint. Not a true white.

PROS: Cheaper than competitor
Has more LED lights than competitor
Sound sync is awesome
Programmable with lots of configuration options
As for color convergence, if you are trying for a tungsten color, you will end up with a VERY definite red halo around each light. There is simply no way around it. With lights priced as low as these, it is to be expected, but I mention it for those who would be concerned.
PROS: VERY Inexpensive
Good set of standalone functions (without needing DMX)
DMX Daisy Chain allows built-in functions to be used on all lights in the chain without connecting to a lighting board.
CONS: Color convergence isn't the best
No On/Off switch/button.
Much larger than they need to be
No built-in mounting points for a gobo or diffuser to be mounted in front of the light.
The 9x10s have a larger wash area, but the brightness is incredible., I would say three times as bright as these fixtures.
It's not a pro or a con, but it should be noted that these have a fairly narrow beam.
One of the lights I received wasn't completely assembled correctly. It was a simple fix to remove a screw, properly place the back panel where it should have been, and re insert the screw. Fortunately it was an easy fix, but you really expect a product to be properly assembled when you receive it.
PROS: Cheap, Cheap, Cheap!
Solid control options on the lights including RGB color mixing
No fan - Lights should be seen, not heard and these are silent
Low power consumption
Master slave operation easy to setup
CONS: Color convergence is a bit off. This isn't a surprise, but it should be noted. most colors mix really well, but some colors just don't look right like white and yellow.
The mounting brackets aren't long enough to accommodate dmx cables while sitting on the ground for up-lighting.
No power pass through available on these lights means I need to have an outlet for each one.
No white or amber LED's make certain colors hard or impossible to achieve.
PROS: This light is very bright, and has a relatively narrow beam, so it's perfect for a 20-30 foot throw. DMX setup is simple. The color mixing is very good, especially for a fixture with discrete red, green, and blue LED's.
CONS: One light had a few bad LED's so I will need to replace it when they are back in stock. The fixture is larger than it needs to be. The DMX profile doesn't seem to match other RGB lights, so I had to breate a custom profile for my lighting control software (Q Light).
PROS: Bright, range of colors, responsive to DMX control
CONS: Very right pattern
Thank you for your review. I am truly sorry to hear that, on the off chance that you may have gotten a defective item, did you want to try a replacement to see if it'll work better? Please let me know, thank you!
I returned them and purchased these. These are light years beyond those Par64 lights from GC.
They are brighter, the LED bulbs are bigger so that it's more intense, the DMX works flawlessly, and the sound activated actually works.
If you are thinking about Par64 lights then look no further. Seriously, do not buy any other Par64 lights anywhere else.
Sound sync is awesome
Tons of configuration options
PROS: Amazingly light. Box says 4lbs, but I would be surprised if they were. Likely will get beat up quickly in a rough environment, but that isn't my theater. A very large CAN. Not much of a PAR. Just simply a lot of LEDs that cast a really great wash.
CONS: Seems they will get beat up fairly easily. They are very light and very thin. No parabolic to speak of - light just goes where it goes. 3 pin DMX, but 5 pin converters are cheap.
