Anyone know if they discount the S3 software along with their controllers, CCRs, etc. for the Spring or Summer sale ?

I could be wrong but I don't recall any of the sales discounting the software itself.

Historically the software has not been reduced at the sales. But, S3 is is a different ball of wax (can control other-than-LOR equipment), and the SuperStar is new. Don't know how much comparing it to the past you can do...

If I was a betting man, I would say no. I think the sales are geared around inventory reduction, and bulk buying decisions. The software falls into neither. And let's face it, it is already cheaper than the options I've looked at (and price aside is better IMO).

But, I think the starter package as a total is on sale, but more a reflection of the hardware price than software.

Software has never been on sale since I've been using LOR. A discount might be applied if a person purchases the starter kit.

that's a good point, I didn't consider the starter package discount


Yes with the starter package you get the Advanced software for $69.00 rather than for $139.95.

With the starter package you get:
USB485 adapter $29.95
USB Cable with filters $9.95
10' Cat5 Cable $3.95
Advanced Software for $69.00 (reg: $139.95)

-----

Because most people usually get their software free or discounted as part of a starter package we do not offer further discounts.

It looks like it makes the most sense to get the 16 channel starter package, and add the Advanced S3 for $69. It comes out to be around $450, and you get a controller, the accessories, and the S3 Advanced software.

I think that's about as good as buying them individually during last year's spring sale, where the 16-channel controller was around $270 or $280.

Seems to make even more sense to save further by going this route:

$205 16-Channel Controller (simple assembly with screwdriver--no soldering) http://store.lightorama.com/ctascpa.html

$113 Starter package (with S3 Advanced) http://store.lightorama.com/spk800.html

Everything for $318 (save $130 to go towards your next controller)

I should hire you good sir. If you ever come to Utah, I owe you a steak dinner. And that is a southern handshake :-)

You're welcome.

This should work (and if you hurry looks like free shipping on certain orders):

If you don't mind me asking. Does anyone have an idea of when the spring or summer sale may happen?

Normally? Spring sale anywhere from mid/late March to early/mid April. Summer Sale, has been as early as Memorial Day weekend, though usually in the late June or early July time frame.

If you were to ask LOR right now, I'd guess the answer would be, "Don't know yet."

Also from that page (though this info is most likely outdated, nor was it even close to accurate last year).


Scheduled Light-O-Rama sales:

Spring Sale: February/March time frame will be an inventory clearance sale. Limit quantities and great prices!

Summer Sale: Super Sale with special incentives! In 2010, 43 people received their orders for FREE! This sale will be sometime during the summer.

Yes, inquiring minds would like to know what might be coming down the pike Dan.

Could you give us a peek or are things that much up in the air still?

TIA
