This is a good idea, instead of cluttering the forums with sale threads.

Maybe there won't be one this year....(cue scary music)

In that case,

For Sale 1 controller for 1 billion dollars! -{insert evil laugh}-

I hate to be "Dr. Killjoy" but rather than speculate on it, I'm going to sit back and wait for Dan to announce it :)

If this thread gets buried, someone will start a new one anyhow.

Where's the sale? Who's got the sale? When's the sale? Got to get the sale! Aw come on, give me the Sale! Where's the sale? and so on and so on.

Bet Dan is sitting back laughing at the antics going on about the sale.

i guess we will know via notice IF it happens. Last year there was no summer sale (except a couple of controllers). A sale is a sale and it up to LOR if and when they have a sale.

Last year there was a summer sale which was staggered over a month, offering a couple of products every week, also when the new PC controllers came out they were at a reduced introductory price

This is true. But it's also up to the company to advise if there is NOT a sale for respect to their loyal customers that are accustomed to the past history of sales (except for last year, which was a complete turn around from all those previous years). I am a devoted fan to LOR but I'm wondering if they've grown so big that they scramble to know what they have or will have to even have a sale. Last year showed that. Although it might have been due to a vendor problem, the same could be true for this year.

Again, nothing against Dan or LOR. This is not a slam against them. But it's a new day versus a couple years ago. The bigger you get, the more complicated it can be, relying on other companies/vendors/contractors to come thru for a finished product.

I will always purchase my lighting equipment from Dan and LOR because they provide great service and great products. But I won't hold my breath for a sale.

Just my thoughts.

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question expecting people to foresee the future but I was wondering if in the past Summer Sales, they have had starter kits as part of the sale or is it for individual components only.

Reason I ask is because I am keen to get into this Lightorama thing but haven't ordered a starter package yet and have been waiting for the much talked about Sale. However, I notice that the starter kits are somewhat reduced anyway in that the software is discounted as part of the package and so I wondered therefore whether they tended not to be part of the sale.

Usually the starter packages I assume you are referring to are not specifically in the sale, but you can accomplish the same thing by adding the Generic Starter Package onto whatever controllers you purchase. Therefore usually best to get a sale controller and add your own starter package.

A few years ago the answer to this was Yes, the starter package by that I mean 1 controller, 1 cable, 1 USB PC adapter, 1 Basic license was indeed a part of the sale. This is how I initially got started, I happened on the sale in July of 2008 and I bought a starter package. Have kept buying ever since.

One of the above reply's talked about how great Dan's stuff is and may not need a sale, I completely agree with that statement, sure I don't mind spending a bit less on what I need, and yes, the better the discount the more pieces I'm likely to buy. What I really need though is to see the RGB Bulbs/Pixels at the online store, I've seen similar products elsewhere but, I really prefer to stick the native LOR networking and interface. I can, but I don't want to have to figure out dealing with a DMX interface. So please Dan, update your store so I can buy a couple of sets of your RGB Bulb.

Thanks

EdP,

Thanks for that.

Will try and hold out until the sale but finding the wait a little difficult. July is soon running out and Xmas is getting closer everyday and I'm expecting it to be a bit of a slow learning curve for me getting to grips with all this tech. So every day counts I guess especially if I want to have something up and running this year.

I will try and be patient...... :-)

I found something nifty out on this thread http://forums.lighto...3-lor-for-sale/

Some of the sale information is there.

I originally supposed that I think what they were doing was adding a 1 before the .html, but I now realized that they were going to the march mad grab sale. From there you can see what the sale prices will be for the summer sale. Link here: http://store.lightor...secretsale.html
