help please need DMX moving heads

okay, sarcasm mode off.
£200 will just about buy you a new lamp for a moving head with those features.
With that budget I would hunt on ebay for some DJ kit or cash converters. Scanners are more likely to be in your price range rather than moving heads. But I would say that the response you are most likely to get to that questions is this one:
" No you don't"

plz let me know thanks
£208 is a bloomin' good price for a moving head of any flavour! I got two MH-250S's (basically the 250w halogen version) for that money about the time they came out a few years back and price has gone up since.
For messing about at home, if you're learning about DMX and how lights move / respond etc for example, then you ain't gonna do better at that price - great advantage being low power consumption and lack of high temperatures.
As for using at school, I'd forget theatrical type use, as even a couple of generics (fresnels etc) will wash them out and you will be horribly disapointed with the result (I've been there!)
If it's for a school disco/talent show where there won't be much ambient or general wash light, then they will be OK for a bit of light/colour/pattern movement, especially with haze.
Mobile disco use, yeah great!

Here is the manufacturer - Prolight Concepts.
Looking at the website they still have to have the same sort of fixtures, bigger and better and also some models similar to my old 1's but with an LED source.
And just to add, I think hands on experience other than using visualisation softwear is the best learning method.. in my opinion. I learnt so much about DMX control and programming on a really cheep 20ch controller.
Hope this helps,
