    I'm a solo musician that gigs in dark corners of dark bars. I needed something to add light and color to my stage areas without adding another trip to the car for lighting gear. I'm extremely happy with the Colorstrip Mini so far. First off, the portability is great. Its about 19" long and light as a feather, seems very well constructed too. I just toss it in my gear box with cables, etc. Also, at $100 its an easy investment decision considering what it provides. I just set it on the floor out in front of me, pointed at my chest (the adjustable mounting brackets double well as a floor stand). In my opinion, it is SUPER bright. Its amazing how such a physically small light source will wash the average size performance area especially if the room is dark. I personally don't find it to be too obtrusive having been in front of stage lights before but could see someone with sensitive eyes feeling differently. I can still easily see what's going on with my pedals on the floor and my mixing board. However, if you stare at it dead on, you will see "sun spots" when you look away. A little common sense helps avoid this issue. I currently use the Colorstrip only as a standalone unit in its "Sound Active" modes. Other options include Master / Slave functionality (daisy chain up to 30+ units) and DMX control. Chauvet even makes a foot controller for it. I've been pretty happy with the internal programming for my purposes. You can do anything from a very subtle color-fading effect (022) to extremely dynamic, beat-following programs (008, 009) . The built-in mic cues the program changes very responsively. As soon as a beat kicks in, it is following right along (1...2...3...4..., Red...Green...Blue...Yellow, etc.) Some of the programs follow the beat but with more gradual color changes (013, 015) or a clubby "lens- flipping" effect (012). There is even a "shuffle" program (023) that randomly runs through all the other programs. My only gripe with the programming is that the sound active functions kind of keep on running randomly even when the music stops. I would like to see it just stay on the color it was on when the song ended until it picks up significant sound again. Overall, I'm having a lot of fun with it and might add one or two more down the road.

    I purchased two of these lights fo my band. Right out of the box one of them didn't work so I needed to send it back. After about three shows the other one quit working also. I think these lights may be a decent option if they are placed in your setup and not moved, but they do not stand up to road abuse. When they work, they work well and maybe I just have bad luck with chauvet products, but I will definately spend more money to get something else before I purchase chauvet again.

      Comments about Chauvet COLORstrip Mini:

      As with almost everything I have ever gotten from MF this light strip was a great purchase. I own other chauvet products and this was no exception to being a good quality product. I intend to purchase another mini- strip to go with this one for a bigger and better effect. I have owned this one for a couple of years and haven't had one minutes trouble out of it. It has held up great through the mud the blood and the beer of bar room playing.

        Comments about Chauvet COLORstrip Mini:

        Nice little lights with cool programs but really not suited for a large or complicated show. We tried to coordinate these as supplemental back lighting for a large production and the lights struggled to keep up. They couldn't hold our program from the master controller and "reset" or lost all input after each show. Very Frustrating!

        I bought (2) restock colorstrip minis. I was told everything was included and the lights work just like new. Well, the lights worked fine, but I did not receive large mounting brackets for uplighting application. No power cord jumper for one of the lights. No flying hardware for the other. Basically, not shipped complete. Called in to Ccustomer service and was told the parts would ship out. That was 3 weeks ago. Still no parts.

          Comments about Chauvet COLORstrip Mini:

          Bought a couple of these to light those occasional small dark stages. They are much brighter than I expected. I link them together with a DMX cable in master/slave mode using sound chase. The only real complaint is that when the music ends, they go into a random flash sequence. It would be best if they just held the color they were on when the song stops. Other than that, they are small, light, easy to set up and transport, and bright enough for the intended purpose.

            Being the efficient one that I am I did started my Christmas Shopping 59 days before Christmas. When my son decided to return the product (the day after Christmas) they said it was past the due date for returns. He even asked for store credit and they would not give it to him. DISAPPOINTING CUSTOMER SERVICE He will use the product but would rather have had a microphone instead. I don't understand the big deal on a return since he would be giving MF the money either way with a store credit.

            Ordered two restocks for an appealing price, after reading all the good reviews. Upon arrrival one worked, one didn't right out the gate.
            Both were replaced as a courtesy by MF with new units.
            Those 2 arrived, but the same story; one worked, one was DOA.
            Sent both back, called it quits. Lights that have a 50/50 chance of working are definetely below my reliability requirements, even though MF backs them on DOAs and offers extended warranties. Too much hassle for me.

            Chavet COLORstrip Mini

            Comments about Chauvet COLORstrip Mini:

            Not an expert on light strips, but I love this lighting system. Solidly built, responds to music with the built in mic. Plug and play. Got a lot of compliments for the lighting effect. Easy set up and if you like the thing to control itself so you can concentrate on your music, this is the ticket. Great price.
            For small settings but you can chain them together.

            Great little light!

            By Wolfgang Oehry

            from Planet Earth, area SE USA

            Comments about Chauvet COLORstrip Mini:

            So far I have nothing negative to say about this item. For me it's perfect. If someone requires stronger lighting, maybe another unit would be better, or hooking together several of these strips will work too.
            I'm a musical entertainer and do solo gigs. This 19" lighting strip is just what I needed. It gives me just enough light and effects and it also fits perfectly in front of my Kustom KPC10MP 10 Powered Monitor Speaker. The unit is programmable, has its own volume knob and a on/off switch. The 'legs' hold it nicely on the floor and allow me to direct the light to any upward angle I need. I'm happy with it!
            I only had it for a few weeks, so I cannot say much about the longivity of the unit.
            I've got this unit for less, because I bought a 'blemished' item. Which, except the box it came in, wasn't blemished at all. Must have been a return.
