    Showtec phantom 50

    I'm thinking about 8 or 10 of these. What do you think? Is there anything else I should look at around the same price point

    Those look to be the same as the Chauvet Intimidator Spot LED 250, which has a 40 watt LED, so these are 10 watts brighter.  The Intimidators are great units, so I'd expect the Phantom 50s to be as well.  The one thing that I don't like is the manual focus - you have to set the focus manually with the screw lens on the front.  Another mover with the same gobo set and a very, very similar feature set is the Stairville MH-x50+.  The MH-x50+ provides the motorized focus function so you can focus gobos at various distances via DMX and also adds prism rotation (pretty sure the Phantom 50, like the Intimidator Spot LED 250, has a static prism - no prism rotation).

      Thanks Steve, I was looking at the mx-50 before I found the showtec, but good points regarding the focus and prism. Cheers!
