Mhp's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" What happiness!"

Starway Max Spot 500
Unlike the previous opinion, I am totally satisfied with these lyres.

Purchased in April 2010 for 624 euros each (an excellent price at the time), used only for the private party (works, weddings, birthdays, etc ...) for gauges up to 200 people.

A provision in some of my colleagues also, they come out about 50 times a year, and no problems to date.

A reasonable weight (13kg), gobo interesting because almost all very current, beautiful colors, a prism effectively, a power that is still very close to MSD 250 lamps, consuming ridiculous (which avoids stress in some rooms where the wiring is more than limit), you can not ask for more!
If I wish I had the same features and power, in a lyre size maxspot 300 (20 w). It would have been a must for the bulk and handling ...

Starway Max Spot 500
I wanted to go against the opinion prcdent.

I use these lyres for 2 years now, of Manire rgulire, but not heavy: 40 50 trips / year for the private evening (weddings, CE, birthdays, etc ...), and no greater prestas ...

No problem noted this day ...

Practice (goes everywhere even in rooms where the electric power is more than limit), lightweight (13 kg) aesthetic.

Beautiful, well-current gobos, nice colors, effective prism, a very close MSD power of 250 ..

Choice again without any hesitation, if not problematic binds to the lyres (height loss in low-ceilinged rooms, and volume of course more important than for scans ...

I bought 8 June 2010. already down 3 (2 for the second time) yet they are protected in BETONEX fly in pro. LEDs let go, the problem of stability of DMX (yet I have a DMX booster).
frankly not their reliability is close to the nothingness, thank you for daring to sell starway
products such as: ((
Moreover, I sell them and go back on solid values.

Very big worry about power connector of the lamp.
Indeed beams 3 (of 4 machines) replaced because the domino plastic! had melted.
Little message to starway: At this temperature one puts ceramics dominoes.

- For how long have you been using it?
1 year and 2 months

- What thing do you like most/least about it?
most: low price, good power lamp, 7 DMX channels
minimum: rather fragile: the DMX input jack is 'back' in the box and the color wheel went crazy (she turns all the time without stopping, even with good values ​​DMX), otherwise it is not fast at all.
EDIT: In the end, it's trash: do not buy this lyre: it overheats and do bugger electronics

EDIT (for the color wheel, the yoke gets very hot (probably smell of burning plastic!)) I lower my rating to 2.5 because of this major design problem (false connections to contacts.)

RE EDIT (May 2009): after four months she remained for repairs from a reseller not very professional of Lyon, the symptoms reappeared! finally: I fixed it myself: just remove the cover of the mobile body of the lyre and then disconnect and reconnect the cables: so it was a bad contact in the connectors that disturbed me the lyre. Otherwise, it is necessary that I reattach the connector DMX is down!

yet EDIT: (June 2009): the lamp power to the air not work: it is food that I will have to repair or is a false contact, which prevents the lamp working, that means, it will be necessary that I take time to fix all that. (in fact, the lamp is burnt out ....)

- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
no, this is the first personal lyre

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
seen the problems I had, it is zero.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
no, I will choose one (or two) above range.

it is so slow that I do not really know what's the point of putting the channel DMX-speed Pan and Tilt "!!!!!!

Briefly, I used mainly for making small effects "U" (the sort of half-turn by turning the Pan and Tilt 180 °)!

given the problems I had (very big problems hardware) seen with his speed, I recommend at least the upper range.

Hi all.

I bought two months ago in two lyres promo for 500 Euros for the hardware c'tait expo with hardly used.

I did used once for rveillon year.

Assets:
- A good brightness.
- Nice colors, I love the magenta among others.
- They are not too big nor too heavy.
- The possibility of reversing the Pan and Tilt.
- The display of a beautiful blue and lyre is returned if the pose or grip.
- The possibility of dyeing the lamp via the DM X.

Cons:
- The not so good if hdl gobos, 3 of 7 I like.
- A small projection angle trs: 8 meters is a drawing of nitre Diameter approx.
- Slow: scnes or on some yet I do not ask trs fast speed, it is four times slower than Pipelines Limited.

I can not even talk about the reliability APRS a single use.

For the price, you can not expect the hardware business, but even if that is the limit of the toy, although it must be used to draw things INTERESTED. You have to see if the reliability is at an appointment.
I would see over time, but may be others that I Rasht 2

I like its simplicity, weight, height, skill ...
I do not like gobos ...
Yes I tried other models and I find this lyre is the best value, from 10 we can make real nice effects, but at 20 you can make a well founded even in light rooms 1000 places on huge plate ...
I would do exactly the same choice!

Starway Max Spot 500
I use it for a few hours DMX, I will not talk about reliability, then!
I like its weight: 6 kg, its colors, the shutter, the fluid movements, the power of the lamps ....
I do not like: The speed ... it's slow, my cot DMX 300 are hyper faster!
You can not make quick trs show dmx mode!

This is a good product even when apart extreme slowness ...
I do not know if I choose to do it again, I think it's better spot than 4 lyre max 2 max 2 dmx 300 spot and as it were dropped.
I use it in Discomobile.
