Review: Laluce Stage Light
The Laluce Stage Light is an interesting creation. It features nine LEDs: red, green, blue, yellow, rose, purple, orange, and amber, and a variety of ways to control its lighting effects. For serious applications it can interface with a DMX controller, but it even works great in casual use. You can simply plug it in and it starts its light show.
In the box you get the effects light itself, a very short three prong AC cable, an infrared remote control, and an instruction manual. The instruction manual does a good job of explaining the many operating modes.
Since I don’t have any DMX control equipment, I’m looking at this from the standpoint of a casual user, one who will be using this for in-home parties with family and friends. For that, the lighting effects and control options are stellar. It really does turn a room into a party room.
Of course, that’s not to say the Laluce Stage Light is perfect. For instance, you’ll definitely hear its fan. It’s more like a white noise type of sound, though, and, in any case, it does keep everything nice and cool when it’s running, even for hours on end, which is helpful around small kids and clumsy adults.
Perhaps the biggest issue for me, though, relates to the aforementioned short AC plug. It doesn’t stay in the unit well and tends to fall out if the unit is jostled. Also, on my plug, the third prong for the three prong plug end was loose and clearly damaged. Since it’s only the ground, I wasn’t overly concerned about getting a shock, but the quality of the included plug is definitely disconcerting, especially with how nice the rest of the setup is.
Whether for professional or casual use there’s a lot to like about the Laluce Stage Light. The first thing I’d want to do though is replace that AC plug with something of better quality. Hopefully Laluce addresses this potential issue at some point so their otherwise excellent product can be recommended without qualification.
Thanks to Laluce for the discounted review unit.
