I have four of them and I love them to death. LOL, for my events which is mostly all Mobile there bright enough, use some fog with it if you can to show the effect of the beams. Also with the fog you can see the laser in it which is a very cool effect, BUT if for some odd reason you don't like them, return them if you can and get the Mighty Scan, it's about the same size but heavier. There brighter and have better strobing effects. Have fun with them, and also eventually get a controller for it, you'll have more fun with it then.
