Ok so first the picture that they have up is not the same light pattern you will get with these lights it is more of a Colidascope spinning type changing color light. But with that being said after hooking them up and testing them out my band and I really liked them and decided to keep them and add them to are light show. So far so good for us others may not like them it really all depends on what effect and look you are trying to create on stage. We have 4 of these now that spread across the stage and look great with are other lights and Lasers we have in are show. As for us we like them. And for the band on a budget you can't beat the price!

The photos shown in the description of the light output is for the LX-5, NOT the LX-5X! That one X makes a bid difference. The original LX-5 puts out the lighting effects shown in the description photos. The newer 5X is a big step down in my opinion. I was looking to add just a little extra to my current light show, and thought these would add a little fill. They are so weak, and the effect is unimpressive (ugly and cheap looking). Look for videos online comparing the two versions. Then avoid my mistake. I wouldn't use these for a house party, and I'm sure not using them on stage.

    Not a club light, but did a good job on the dance floor of a Halloween party. Just enough to keep things interesting. I like that each box has a power out.

    Comments about Chauvet DJ LX-5X Moonflower:

    Had 2 of these for 2 years now. they still run as good as they did the day i bought them. very nice lights. but keep in mind due to the price the patterns are limited. but i fill up a room with fog and turn these babies on and the beams slice through the air and with the cool strobing effect it looks like your traveling through space! very cool!

    Nice deal for home use

    By Lucutis

    from St. Louis

    About Me Experienced

    Comments about Chauvet DJ LX-5X Moonflower:

    Very reasonable price. Great for home use and amateur raves. It utilizes single color LED's, so the patterns it produces are more limited than mult-color LED pary lights. The software runs through a fairly limited set of light patterns. But that is to be expected for a beginner rave light. Otherwise, it looks great and is very nice for parties and less professional needs. A nice value. It does a great job in sound activated mode. One more thing, it strobes the patterns a lot, so if you like more lasting patterns and less flashing, you might want to consider that aspect.

    Great Light

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Chauvet DJ LX-5X Moonflower:

    This Light is GREAT!!!! The sound strobe is very accurate. Great on the Dance floor. I don't suggest using it on the dance floor on a hardwood floor or a laminated floor. the people dancing will mess up the beat.(only if the LX5 is on a portable lighting stand.) Otherwise, It is a Great Light for DJs or someone that wants to make the dance floor a lot better!

    By WetInWashington

    from Washington State

    Comments about Chauvet DJ LX-5X Moonflower:

    This gets hours and hours of playtime and after almost 3 years of abuse (dropping) it still works! This year we wanted to use it on a float for a parade with a Arab nights theme, it rained during that parade (I don't recommend putting this out in the rain) and this light played like a pro for all of it! Needless to say this is very high quality.

      This works great if you need to add that little kick to your light tree. I have a dj service and work with live band and both are perfect places to use this beauty. I got this on a stupid deal of the day so the price could not be beat. Worth the coin to make your show light up and spin.

          This would have been my first light purchase, but after watching reviews, I found out that the picture of product is incorrect.
          I called Musicians Friend to inform them.
          Bummed and still no lighting...still in the dark ya might say!

                This is false advertising!! The effect of this light looks NOTHING like the effect shown in the pictures. It is simply a rotating kaleidoscope type light.....looks pretty cheesy unless you have fog. And even then it's still nowhere as good as the pictures. Display is very pixelated and square.

                  I got the light on stupid deal of the day for less than have of what it list for. I used it for a wedding reception in a room that was about 30 ft x 30 ft & 1 light did a nice auto light show. I wish the IRC remote came with it, but I will buy one to get the other light effects. Watch the video on You Tube to see it work with the remote.

                          I bought the light for some live band atmosphere. The pictures shows the streams of light projected. This is not the case. You only see spots of light where device is pointing (wall or floor). To see the light streams you need a smoky room or fog machine. You can also put the device extremely close to a wall to see streams of light that way. Really don't know how they got it to look in the ad pictures. Only has mic sensitivity control. No other adjustments.
