As a DJ I have a number of laser lights. I decided to purchase this one as I have a very similar one that is green and loved that one. This red laser light is just as effective. It's small, light weight and packs a punch. I would reccommend. I have more expensive laser lights where you have red, green, blue together but I take out cheaper lights when I get paid less for events etc. They are still as effective but means that my more expensive lasers have a longer life span. The light does an array of patterns and is bright.
