7 (7/10)

Overall Opinion 7/10

The Robo Scan 518 by Martin Light is great for stage lighting. I have seen this in use plenty of times throughout my music career. This stage light is used in several local clubs in my area and I must say it seems great. It has rotating gobos, and a fixed 3 facet prism and now the robo Scan 518 features 16 degree wide angle optics. It is fixed 3 faced prism frost filter combined with mechanical dimmers and shutters.

But now the Robo scan 518 is discontinued and is no longer produced so good luck finding one, but if you can the price shouldn’t be too bad, but since its no longer made if it goes out on you: you might have a hard time finding parts and or bulbs to run it. Even if you call the company that makes them they might not help you fix it they will probably try to cross sell you or get you to upgrade.

Overall this is a great stage light but I don’t think its worth the risk on investing in a product that is no longer produced and has had some issues in the past that’s why they have discontinued it, it does look great though and actually its very affordable which is why a lot of clubs and bars choose to go with the robo Scan 518 Martin Light. This light is made by Martin and they are a company of entertainment control and intelligent lighting and effects. Martin makes several products that uses high quality parts used in the entertainment industry, but I think they fell short when creating this one. Not too sure what happened to get it discontinued. But for the most part it’s a great light and if you can get it in working condition for cheap it’s a steal and you must get one.
