Re: Reke 500RGB

the Blanking fails and it does the wrong colors. i tried to switch every kind of channel in the ezaudac.ini but without effort. so it must be soldered wrong somewhere...
Set the ini file to the defaults and swap the wire for the intensity channel with the wire for the green channel and see if that fixes it.. I haven't tried it myself but I was told this will take care of the color problem.

As far as blanking goes that could be a software issue, what program are you using?

According to random dorks on the internet once it gets to ISC it's past customs and just fucking around in the UPS network and no further tracking info will show up... Give it a few more days they may be holding it to meet some artificial deadline (because they didn't get paid enough for super fast service). You can always call them, usually customer service has more info than you can get on the website.

Dammit. I shouldn't have read that :). Now I am hoping it will show up today but the tracking wont tell me that.

Thanks for the info.

Keep in mind the "random dorks" part of my statement... Call UPS if you want and get the real scoop.

At least you don't know where yours is unlike mine where I know it showed up in town but their going to hang on to it just long enough so they can't deliver it before the holiday and I will have to wait till next week to play with my Pangolin.

I got mine today!:D

Shipping speed: Acceptable... China to Canada ( ordered 28oct and got it 10nov)
Packing: Excellent, Dual cardboard box and bubbles etc
Unit conditions: Clean, no unthightened screw, just loosy pcb
Working condition: Pretty good. the green is a little missaligned with the rest, but i can tolerate.

Overall opinion:

I connected it and played with. ( I had in mind the few video i saw of it on youtube) but my own impression with my unit is far better than i expected.. at least for a product of 270$ shipped ( no tax no duty fee!) The power seem enough to give good visual output on most conditions.
I was impressed bu the angle it can cover!!... I projected it in my garage ( 15 x 30' and with the white wall and the projector centered on the wall in front of me, the beam was covering also the sidewall, giving a kind of good immersion into the graphics... the 3D impression is good too.

The only thing i would appreciate is that on the sound mode, that the transitinos and the speed of the moving figure could be adjustable... the pattern size is adjustable but not the speed ( rythme) so if you project with a slow song, the auto mode seem a bit too quick to match the song... but thats a detail as well.

I used odor free silicon to fix the loosy pcb inside to avoid them to unsolder . The X and Y amplifier TDA2030 board was loosy.

The 4o pin chip have a white sticker label with 15K Lck on it.. i guess it's for 15K scanners?

I saw a picture of someone else 500RGB of LPF with the chip label with 10K LcK:thinking:


I also ordered the RGB500 wich is a really similar model except that it is 300mW blue laser and 20K scanners. It should arrive soon, i ordered it two days after the 500RGB.

I will search on this forum to get the best deal on ILDA interface and laser show software.. i saw spaguetti wich seem a good alternative to the pangolin $$$ software.

Personally i would rate this laser projector to 90%. At that price, this is an unbeatable deal!!
