Questions and Answers
I DMX Mode you can daisy-chain to allow DMX Signal to pass
PROS: This fixture is very bright! Best output to dollar ratio I've seen. The RGBW color mixing is smooth and flicker free. At 2.5 lbs, the Monoprice Flat Par is perfect for small churches, schools, and other venues that can't hang heavy fixtures. The menu on the back is typical of other LED fixtures and is extremely easy to navigate (didn't even need the manual).
CONS: While I understand that having an RGBW, 90w fixture for this price means some feature cuts, I was still disappointed in a couple of things. Even though Monoprice has low prices, we've all come to appreciate a certain level of quality that I feel is missing here. The tightening knobs for the yoke don't hold. No matter how hard you crank down, they eventually come loose. I'm going to buy some rubber washers and see if it helps (which is now adding to the cost per fixture). The knobs are cut from cheap plastic with VERY sharp edges and jagged plastic pieces sticking out, making tightening even more difficult. Power in AND out is pretty much standard on even the cheapest lighting fixtures. I would've liked to see it on this light.
PROS: Very Bright for the price. DMX features set is decent. while the W in the RGBW isn't very bright by itself, it is amazing what a difference it makes color mixing.
Good for up close with wide disbursement (wide angle).
CONS: ADD-ON OPTION BARN DOORS PLEASE!: I'm currently using this for a school play, and have come to realize there's too much light bleed at wider angles. I would recommend monoprice find a vendor to sell barn doors that can be added on to the front of this light so you can control or constrain the bleed better.
KNOB LOOSENING HACK: I agree with another reviewer that the tightening knobs on the side come loose too easy when adjusting the light. This is because out of the box the RUBBER Washer, binds with the knob to the bracket too tight and will loosen when you adjust the light.. HACK: If you simply move the rubber washer between the bracket and the light housing instead, you'll see better results. I would also recommend if this is still a issue go to homedepot and get a hard plastic/metal washer add it between the knob and the bracket side do the bracket won't bind with the knob.
PROS: Good coloring, no halos. smooth color through out the spot
CONS: No barn doors.
PROS: Bright light for the price. worked well with my videography use.
CONS: No barn door option, but that can be hacked with black construction paper and gaffer's tape.
CONS: The fans make some noise. If used in any type of show setting with music, or 8 ft+ from the audience, this is not an issue
I would have given a rating of 5, except the fan on one unit became unbalanced or something, and got very loud ( in the RMA process now for replacement )
PROS: Bright! Low profile. Cheap. RGBW. No flicker. Solid menu buttons. Intuitive menu.
CONS: Plastic construction. No barn doors. No power out for daisy-chaining fixtures. No low-profile AC plug.
These LEDs are flatter and rounder than the other LEDs Monoprice sells. They are plastic, so how well they hold up remains to be seen (the 7x8s are all metal construction). As far as DMX goes, programming is exactly like the 7x8, so no need to create a new profile in your lighting software.
Since this product has 9 10 watt LEDs, I expected it to be brighter than the 612740. I don't have a light meter, just going by my eye, but it doesn't seem to appear any brighter. It throws a tighter round pattern, with a harder circular edge to it than the other LEDs from Monoprice. Color seems to be pretty identical to the other Monoprice LEDs. This instrument may have richer blues could just be my imagination.
This instrument is about $30 cheaper than the 612740s, so if you are buying a bunch of lights, it may be worth the savings. I would say the light output is pretty similar to the 7x8s, although again, the pattern is tighter. Overall, I'm quite impressed with this little fixture. 5 years ago, you'd be paying 10x the price for the same output!
PROS: CHEAP. Good output. Fairly tight round pattern to the beam. Smooth dimming.
CONS: Plastic case. ONLY operates in 8 channel mode, so if you're running out of DMX channels, you can't run it in 4 channel mode.
