This is a fine Laser projection unit. It comes with a number of preset images for various occasions (Christmas, New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, Bitrhday, etc.) The Custom Text part is okay (one font style from what I can find) and you can only edit using the keyboard provided. The menu for it comes from the projector so you need to turn it on, point it at a wall and then select menu to get started with customizing. The other quirk I found is when saving a custom text. You don't hit just save when you are done. You have to hit save and then the number of the location youu wish to save it (it doesn't matter which one you first select to edit). I think it is is save and then number but it might be hold save along with the number. Try both. And, if your tect is longer than about 10 characters you will probably want to reveal the text. Otherwise you only see part of the message (even if you make the text smaller using the zoom feature).
Overall it is pretty neat. I haven't actually used it at an event yet (I only do it as a hobby with a karaoke machine) But I am sure people will be impressed by what this can do.
One big problem for the pros out there. As far as I can tell you can't load in a custom graphic in any form. Only customization is the text you edit inside the projector.

I bought this when they had refurbished units on sale. I did not need a laser, but was interested in the custom text option. The laser is nice and does have a lot of pattern and style choices. Keep in mind this is an older discontinued model.

I ordered a refurbished unit since it was 25% off a new unit. Laser worked once then wouldn't show the laser when I went to use it the 2nd time. Returned it at local store. Received 2nd refurbished unit a week later. Turned it on but keyboard / keys did not work on some menus. Returned it for a 3rd refurbished unit. 3rd unit worked great for a night. Went to use it 2 weeks later and the keyboard does not turn on at all. Currently waiting for a 4th (NEW) unit. They did not have any more of the refurbished units. I was able to get a local store manager to price match on a new unit since it was a "daily deal" a few days ago, plus the fact that it was my 4th unit and they were out of refurbished ones.

I own 7 of these and they are OK for low budget parties

By Jimmy

About Me Experienced

Pros

  • Runs Cooler
  • The effect are good for Holidays ONLY!

Cons

  • Diffraction Lens makes effects too chaotic
  • The remote is hard to use and very confusing
  • too easy to accidentally run the wrong graphics
  • Weak

Best Uses

  • Low Budget DJ Gigs

Comments about Chauvet DJ Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

I own 7 of these and bought them after paying too much for the first one I purchased. These are great for low budget children gigs. Kids love the childish looking effects. Christmas is good and Halloween is good and the "Music Effect" is good. That being said, I would never use this at a wedding reception or BarMitzvah. It would embarrass you because the effects are rather cheesy and the stepper motor is not fast enough for the graphics. It's a good "accent-light" light to use sparingly at a gig. It can not be part of your main set up because of its limitations.

Not worth it at all.

Comments about Chauvet DJ Scorpion Script Custom Text Laser:

We returned this product - twice - once because it arrived without a power cord and once for a refund. It was very limiting in the characters you could use at a time (the word Congratulations wouldn't fit into this machine's limitations... we barely squeaked out Congrats). Only one color - we knew this when we bought it but with all the other limitations, green became very boring very fast. Very difficult to get any of the "custom" options to work properly. This things would be overpriced at $50 let alone the couple hundred we paid for it (on sale during black friday).

But, as always, Guitar Center themselves are great to work with. They didn't hesitate in issuing a refund at the store even though it was purchased online.

This is a pretty good light, really like that you can program your own messages into it. The one thing I don't care for is that in auto mode it runs all programs including Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's, etc

    I got the laser on a super sale. For the price it.s well worth it to add a laser to you show. I started out my professional carrier doing lights. It's great to have at least one laser effect and the Scorpion has several useful modes.

              Great product! Previous coustomers mentioned that the cord is not working. I had the same problem, but when I went to return the Technician plugged the cord first and then attach it the the light everything work! I can customize the text and can't wait to use it next week on my son' s first communion party.

              This little laser script adds a nice effect for weddings and school dances. I actually use it to project messages onto the back of the translucent screen on my portable DJ table setup. I wish it had some different font options and maybe color variations, but otherwise it's a handy little laser effect that is easy to set up.
