I own eight of these lights. I use them for stage front lighting along with my crank towers. Clean crisp bright colors. Performers like them because they are not hot. They add a lot of sparkle to anything chrome on the stage. Here is a pick of them in use with Quiet Riot on the stage!

Despite getting a factory lemon, this was my first experience with a DMX LED Light. The colors are bright, and clean. Easy to to program, although it did drop out of System every time it was shut down. I hope this is simply a defective product. This would be a horrible issue if it were a permanent install. Once I get my replacement, I will repost, and give the rest of the story.
I called MF, explained the situation. At first, I didn't think they were going to replace the product, but they did concede without too much trouble. They even agreed to ship another out as soon as they had the tracking number of the one I had to return. Well done, great service. This is how one keeps customers. The rep, Chris, was a cool cat, and very helpful. Give that dude a raise.
I understand manufacturing, and regardless of how careful quality control might be, sometimes a bad product gets through.
The overall outside construction is a light gauge steel, but engineered well. So far, I am holding the internal manufacturing suspect, until I receive my replacement and do a re-evaluation. I would make a great product review specialist when it comes to lighting. I have spent many years as an electrician and have seen all kinds of expensive lights that were just total junk. The design is structurally strong for it's purpose where weight is a consideration. It is also supplied with two bracket options and aircraft cable with hooks in case the clamps were to ever fail, this being for permanent installs. It also shipped with stickers.
If it weren't for the two LEDS that quit working almost right away, and the very, very loose mic sensitivity knob, the system drop for DMX, it would easily score a 5. Stay tuned, I should have the replacement very soon.

    drummer with lights

    Comments about CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip Four-Channel DMX-512 LED Linear Wash Light:

    I've had this product for 3 yrs. now. It exceeds what I thought . As others have noted, great lighting.
    It is light and pretty sturdy. I made a floor mount for it, when no overhead trusses are available. The one down side is setting the light. If you want to set a particular pattern, you have to go through the whole 23 settings. Yes, I plan on buying another one. This drummer likes to be seen and the folks that come to see the band preform, have commented on the same. I would recommend that people who are looking at lighting , go straight to the LED's. They are quickly replacing the regular lights , and they are never hot. The power consumption is much lower, so you don't have the blown fuse thing

    Makes You Look Impressive!

    Comments about CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip Four-Channel DMX-512 LED Linear Wash Light:

    We bought this light about a year ago for our acoustic duo. We put it on a single light stand between us and hang it over our banner. We use the fade mode, where is slowly fades from one color to the next. We have gotten so many complements on the light, and people think we spent way more on it then we did. It is easy to use, and it is as light as a feather. Sets up in about 1 minute. We are thinking of buying 2 of the smaller versions to light up in front of us. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!!!

    Comments about CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip Four-Channel DMX-512 LED Linear Wash Light:

    I purchased two of these for wall washes but have been using them for much more. Great band lights for small clubs or turn them towards the audience for some amazing dance lights in the auto mode. Also bought the controller which gives you more flexibility. I plan to add more to my inventory as I have got great reviews on their performance.

        Comments about CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip Four-Channel DMX-512 LED Linear Wash Light:

        So MF really came through in replacing the factory lemon.

        After careful inspection, this light seems to be in good working order.
        I haven't experienced any drop outs in the DMX control, the mic knob in the back was nice and tight, no burned out LEDs.

        I'm running Ableton in conjunction with DMXIS to control lighting for a live set. The Colorstrip really holds up to all the trials I have put to it so far.

        The room where I have been programming this show is a 12'x 30' rectangle. The color wash fills all areas of this space, which was impressive and bright.
        I am pleased to know that the LEDs should last a very long time meaning the matainance cost will be low as well as low power consumption.

        This weekend will be my first time on stage with this fixture, I have confidence it will perform as well as I hope. It's a big stage, I'm curious how much throw this will actually have in a live setting.

        It is a well made fixture. Moderate care in transport is recommended with all lighting. This really is a good light and I am very pleased.
        Don't pass this up if your considering this as a possible buy.

        Cool flexible lighting

        By Rock Minstrel

        from Sacramento, CA

        Comments about CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip Four-Channel DMX-512 LED Linear Wash Light:

        It is not incredibly bright, but bright enough, and very flexible in switching and dimming the strange pure colors these LEDs produce, more vibrant somehow than I got with gels (even though not as bright, which is the gotcha). I like the LEDs for their cool light on stage, low operating temperatures, low power consumption, and pure colors they produce. They last 100K hours, and don't break or fail like conventional PAR bulbs. You don't have to handle them particularly special.The programing is simple. Dial in any color you want for a color wash, or pick from a number of programs to cycle through the LEDs, with all the normal chase effects. A foot switch is available, which gives you essential control of the lighting - on, off, program, change program. This is real handy with the lights themselves 12 feet up on a stand. Unless you just want one effect at a time or put them on the ground for color wash up a wall, get the foot switch.Two of them would be the ticket as they link. Light from either side or gang them up for more light in the same area, solving the brightness issue, cause that would be pretty bright). The foot switch will control all other Colorstrips linked. Being compact and light weight is a big plus.

        I have one of these in my light set up, plan to get 3 more. They are super bright (you cant look straight on. Awsome effects. I am going to get 3 more and link them as one. Every one has been saying that you cant do much with them, get a dmx controller, I have one and you can change paterns, fade speed, RGB color mixing. this is the best wash light ever.

          Comments about CHAUVET DJ COLORstrip Four-Channel DMX-512 LED Linear Wash Light:

          I play in an acoustic classic rock trio. My bass player found these and we each bought one. We have them daisy chained together so they run in sync. It adds a lot of bright color and movement to our show. My only disappointment is that you can only run one program at a time. You can't cycle through all the effects automatically unless you buy the optional foot controller.

          Can't give them a ten yet, lets see how they do in the long run....
          Sure beats dragging around (8) Par 64's. These lights only weigh 5 lbs..... and do the job better than the cans. I have switched to all LED lighting. No heat on the guys in the band....
          Haven't been using these long but for only $60 they are protected for three years against wear and tear or any other crap that might happen during transportation or set up and use....
          Great price too !!!!

              This was light is 38 inches long so it throws a wide lighted area. For performances, you can set up one of the auto programs and the light will work through the three colors and light the stage without any input from anyone other that the sound from the performance. Also the light isn't as much "in your face" on stage as Par cans can be. I place the Color strips high on my light stands and let them "wash" the stage with color.

                We bought a pair of these for a band I was in. The first gig when we got to use them, we were playing outside so there were no lights for the first set. As it started getting dark, we turned them on and they looked great. by the time it was completely dark, you could only see a few feet in front of the stage. We were rocking out like we were playing Shea Stadium or something and the drummer's wife said, "You guys should take a break, everybody went inside. The mosquitos are too bad out here."
