    Post New User PL

    Hello guys, I am located in Brazil and I work with Laser Light Shows, about 20 years and I would like to exchange information and ideas with the members of PL.
    I have a Full Color Laser model 168 Spectra Physics, but I am wanting to sell to buy a RGB DPSS Laser and therefore I would like to know, Which is in the moment the best RGB Laser for big or medium environment, with balanced colors, with the best cost-benefit?

    Regards and Happy New Year for everyone

    Most of the users here are Hobbyists so it might be some time before some of the Pros come out here to share their thoughts.

    But if it's quality I bet most people would say Arctos, if you can afford it.

    Thank you for your reply mliptack and I know that many users are hobbyists, however all the information are valid, independent if it is of a hobbyists or professional and besides many hobbyists already has RGB Lasers.
    Regarding your indication of Arctos, I think very expensive the Lasers and therefore I am seeking a manufacturer with lower values.

    Regards

    Cool

    Hi Josť, welcome to PhotonLexicon!

    There's been a lot of posts about solid state lasers lately, and the general consensus is that, for the most part, you get what you pay for. Unfortunately, since we have a lot of hobbyists here, most of our members are on a budget. Arctos units are certianly the cat's meow, but they carry a very high price tag - one that is out of reach for all but the most well-financed professional laser companies.

    CNI lasers have a good reputation here, at least when compared to the other Chinese laser suppliers. Laser Wave products have also been well received, despite the fact that they appear to be relative newcomers to the industry. (Rumor has it that the company was formed by a group of engineers from CNI that left to start their own laser company.)

    Lasever has suffered some setbacks recently, but they claim to have worked out the problems with their design. Although they're sometimes difficult to get in touch with, they do honor their warranty. Time will tell if the improvements they've made will solve the problems they've been having. Still, they are unquestionably the low-price leader, which is one reason why so many hobbyists own Lasever lasers. But then again, for a production company it might not be a good idea to run the risk of having a projector go down right before a show.

    Finally, there are a few members here that are running Viasho lasers, and to the best of my recollection they've been quite reliable as well. Don't know how they compare price-wise to the other companies though.

    Search through the forums, and pay particular attention to the product review sub-forum. There are many informative posts in there that will help you with your purchase, should you decide that solid-state is the way you want to go.

    And, again, welcome to the forums!
