We have been using SHINP shows for almost 2 years with no failures or breakdowns, they are well built and very cost-competitive when compared to most of the other Chinese crap we've tried over the years.

I would not hesitate to recommend their products with one reservation: The new style units being released recently don't seem to be anywhere near the build quality of their old-style units (I have attached a pic of the old and the new style DL22's for comparison)... The "New" DL22's are rated at 100mW per side and the old ones at 80mW (in the "RR" configuration) however the old style is almost twice as visible and the new style lacks a sensitivity control for sound input (not a big deal if you are running them DMX, but a real drawback in "Sound Active" mode).

As to the best "Bang for the Buck" with SHINP units that I've owned are the DL33 in 100mW(X2) 535nm configuration, as well as the CL36RGY (100mW 535nm and 300mW 650nm) ... The AL600RGY (same power as the CL36RGY but with true scanners and ILDA input) is a great low-buck way to get into a true "scanner" system (the lower DMX units actually use stepper motors so you sacrifice fluidity of patterns).

For Blue, you can't beat the SL-8 right now, 50mW at 473nm, full blanking, and if you set up a vendor account with them can be had for under $650 shipped!

Hope this helped, BTW none of the SHINP stuff is FDA compliant (or at least they aren't registered, etc) so you're taking a chance with customs if you buy them from anyone overseas - I suggest paying a little extra for the old style units many US resellers still have in stock (check Ebay, etc) but make sure you are looking at the old style builds.

Starting over, still have my Kryton BDR Build at 401mW and one of the first Eghamus hosts with an O-like module that has faded from 151mW to about 45mW at TEM01 over the years, LOL - still have my LaserBee 1 though

Oops - just to clarify, the old style is in front, the thinner, smaller unit is their new style (also the DMX inputs, power inputs, etc are in the rear on the old style units) ... I'm not sure if they have redesigned their entire line, but I do know they have redone the DL22, the SL2, the SL3, and the DL's models 55 and up, if that helps.
