    Default LOR SPRING MAD GRAB Sale is Tuesday April 7th at 9pm <sharp> !!!!

    They are claiming the lowest prices in the history.

    Light O Rama - Lowest Prices in History!

    I love the price of the completely assembled board with high power heatsinks for $119.95. In order to use this board you will need a CG1500 case, 16 SPT wires and female connectors, two power cords (I have a bunch if needed), and crimp connectors. I can also help with which crimp connectors you need to order. You would end up spending around $140 each for finished boards inside a case.

    The next alternative up from that is the Card assempbled Complete Package for $175.95 This is also a great price. With this kit, the board is already mounted inside the LOR case. You have to insert the wires into the strain-relief holders at the bottom of the case and insert the already crimped wires onto their posts. It's not very complicated and LOR provides an instruction manual for step by step building. My son was building these for me when he was 12, so it's very doable. As I recall, it takes perhaps an hour to make each one. The only tools you need are pliers and a screwdriver.

    Even the $199.95 price is a good one for a completely ready to go 16 channel controller. If you ever decide to sell out, there are always people willing to pay $200 for a LOR controller during the months of October and November !

    I am really jazzed over the $260 kit of 8 RGB spots. In our group buys a few years ago we spent well over $300 to make 4 mighty mini spots. Things have come a long way since then. Keep in mind you still need a case and a power supply for this kit. But it's a pretty nice deal and always easy to sell off at about the same price, in case you don't like them.

    sweet! Great way to get started. Though you'll end up needing two more controllers due to the addiction...

    Excellent .. these were great prices. There was a bunch of posting on the Facebook site that LOR was taking phone orders for the sale prices all during the day. I didn't try, so I don't know if that was fact or fiction.

    The only item I may still need is one ELL .. if anyone wants to sell one.

    Yes, those prices were the best in about 5 years ! I think LOR sales are declining due to competition from China pixels and some great freeware software alternatives. So they are finally competing (slightly) .. Of course their controllers are still the best (and highest power handling, and will still hold their value. And their software is a bargain considering the exceptional level of support they provide.

    I was on line just minutes after it started. "Tried" to buy wire and male and female ends. Already sold out, only thing available were the male ends. I was really kind of let down.
    See more on our Facebook page we're working on!

    some things sell out very quickly during the sale. Maybe during the summer sale you can try again. That was a great price on wire for sure!

    Sorry you missed them. The way to get what you want is to start refreshing the page a few minutes before 9pm. And keep it up about every 15 or 20 seconds. When the sale finally pops up, go immediately to buy what you want and immediately to checkout. A lot of things sell out in 5 minutes. It's always been that way.
