    Has anyone noticed new strobes made recently crap out fast and have a delay?

    Unless you are buying the ones at the Halloween stores then they probably are.
    Ive used the American DJ strobes for years without any problems.

    Absolutely. I have 3 wooden boxed strobes I bought from Radio Shack 20 years ago when I was a kid for $19.99 each. They are still running, and I've never had to replace any part or bulb. I even ran over one's power cord 10 years ago with a lawn mower. I re-spliced, taped it up, and it was working fine. I have used them almost every year. Last year they were running for 10 nights in October, 6 hours each night.

    I bought 3 new ones from some place like Target two or three years ago for about the same price. All three blew out during October after less than two years of use.

    get what you pay for...
    How can a man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers and the temple of his gods.

    I agree with you but I have noticed that the newer LED strobes work pretty good. I've had one going for 3 years now

    Do the LED ones give a good strobe effect like a regular strobe?
