Star Shower Slideshow Review
Holiday laser lights have gained popularity over the past couple of years, and in 2017 BulbHead started very early in its marketing of the next generation of holiday lights. In fact, it was immediately after the 2016 holiday season that I started seeing small test ads for a couple of different laser light shows by BulbHead. I saw ads for Star Shower Laser Magic, Window Wonderland, and Star Shower Slideshow. Each offers a slightly different take on the laser light shows that have performed so well over the past two years: Star Shower Laser Lights and Star Shower Motion.
I haven’t determined if BulbHead is still test marketing all three of these (all of them appear on the BulbHead website as of this writing), or if the company has decided to market all three in a sort of three-tier pricing structure. Right now it appears that they are staggering the cost, with Slideshow at the bottom for $40, Laser Magic at $50, and Window Wonderland at $60. All three of these continually show as “out of stock” on the BulbHead website. I also noticed them on the Walgreens website, but “in stores” only. I called the stores that supposedly carried them and was told they had no such item in stock.
Star Shower Slideshow works by means of a cartridge that holds different colored moving images. You can choose among 12 different themes, half of which are Christmas. This is different than previous Star Shower products that simply had pinpoints of light. The Christmas themes include such images as ornaments, gingerbread man, gifts, Santa, snowflakes, and candy canes. To use Star Shower Slideshow, you simply place it facing your house and insert the desired slide show. As with previous Star Shower products, you’ll need to hook it up to an extension cord. Keep in mind that the farther away you need to place this item, the dimmer the lights will appear. If you want to cover a large area, you may need to get two units, or deal with a very dim display.
When I used Star Shower Motion throughout 2016, I worried that someone could easily drive by and take it. I did hear about this happening from some viewers on YouTube, so you may want to be strategic where you place this.
I doubt you’ll be able to duplicate the dramatic images shown in the advertising, as these projectors typically look dimmer than they seem in the ads. For those wanting to up their game every holiday season, the three holiday lights by BulbHead will probably be a must in 2017. Of the three new light shows, I think Window Wonderland will probably be the most coveted, but it’s also the most expensive.
I’ll keep an eye on this new generation of laser light displays and update this space if anything changes.
If you’re still on the fence, you could always take a look at Star Shower Motion, which was the hot seller in 2016. You can find numerous holiday projectors, such as this $10 model that also displays moving colored images.
