"For the money spent, dollar for dollar I think I can get more bang for my buck with another product."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
Features include DMX-512 operation as well as stand-alone built in programs and Master/Slave operation. The unit delivers as promised in terms of features, the built in programs are lacking in that they don't include any strobe that I witnessed or observed. And since the programs attempt to animate patterns, most of the time only 50% of the LEDs are illuminated which means 50% less light output.
Ease of Use:
This unit like many other Chauvet lighting products was very easy to setup, attach brackets to and use.
The fixture seems very durable and is contained in a rugged metal housing. Since there are no moving parts, I would expect this light to last a long time.
I purchased two of these to replace 2-4 48" T8 fluorescent black lights. I had hoped the light output would be similar or better, but was sadly disappointed as I think you would need 4 or more of these to compete equally. In addition, it seemed that only a little white or visible light was needed to interfere with the black light effect.
Overall I wasn't happy with the performance and as such am going to send them back for a refund or credit towards something else.
