I have led par 64's. strobes, lasers, moon flowers, moving head.... ect. These, by far, are my coolest lights. Blow your mind with fog. I usually use them pointed back at the band without the fog. Many of the other bands that get to use my lights love these. I started with one and now I have 3. I just keep grabbing them as I can afford more of them.

While it is bright and has a long throw, the beam angle of 45 degrees is limiting if you use only one. It REALLY needs haze or fog to look cool. Otherwise it just looks like RGB Twister "Clown dots" as my wife called them. The DMX is frustrating because the 20 channel mode has the control, but not the same programs/speed control it seems as 3 channel mode which is what really brings the light to life. I also wish the beams were fatter and covered more area. Even though the LEDs are RGB, you can't color mix them at ALL because of the positioning and the lenses. It's Red, Green, and Blue no matter how you "Mix" once it hits the floor. The lenses are also meh. With Chauvet's permission (For warranty) I cleaned the inside of the lenses as well as the outside and the lenses still have a film in the actual plastic itself that you can't remove. I'll say this didn't really affect performance so doesn't matter, but it's annoying to look at your light and the lenses look "Dirty" once light hits them. Unless you have more than one, these are basically good for a home party IMO. If the Beam angle was wider and the Beams were fatter, I'd give it 5 stars.

Comments about Chauvet Hive 6-Pod, LED Beam Effect:

Great for the rock star experience! Mount these on a tee bar and elevate them over the band and into the audience for a great affect. You need fog or haze as others have said. Throws great beams and runs cool. Really has cool patterns in auto mode as long as you have music with strong drums or bass. I was so impressed, I bought a second one!

Comments about Chauvet Hive 6-Pod, LED Beam Effect:

The Hive is a nice effect when combined with fog or haze. If you don't have fog or haze it looks cheesy (just colored spots on the floor). With haze it provides nice thick colored beams. I personally use it from the side on a T-stand. My biggest complaint is that it doesn't have a power switch. I can't understand why Chauvet didn't add one. The power cord is also unreasonably short. It's not even long enough to daisy chain to my laser on the same stand. The fan is a little loud, but not that bad and not that big of a deal. It's A little bit bulky and heavy, but no problem mounting to a stand. I recommend using a safety cable to prevent dropping it while mounting. It does have a safety mount. As mentioned, the power is daisy chainable and it has DMX.

    Comments about Chauvet Hive 6-Pod, LED Beam Effect:

    Just received this light yesterday and mostly its impressive for the price but like the other guy said you are lost without the operating manual. The manual they sent is a waste of paper.I was getting ready to return it and I was finally able to download the manual. If you go to www.chauvetlighting.com you will find the manual under HIVE. There are two. One is what they send and the other is what you actually need. Once I had the manual no problem. Without the manual you will be completely lost as product is not user friendly at all. Really happy with Musicians Friend. Don't know how they do it but I received the light 2 days after I ordered it.

      Great effect. Need hazer for it to really be cool. No HAZE and it's just something to put on a dance floor. With haze it's a really great effect.

      Comments about Chauvet Hive 6-Pod, LED Beam Effect:

      I was a little confused by the research I did before I purchased the Hive. I was wondering why the pictures showed more than six light beams when there was only six lens. I didn't realize that when it's described as having 18 LED's that means three per lens. What the pictures and videos showed was accurate. There are a total of 18 beams not six. I was impressed! I thought the pictures were Photoshopped to make it look better than it was. Actually the first time I plugged it in I was more impressed than I thought I'd be. As other said, when you use it, it should be in a smokey environment or add a little haze. I'm a professional musician and not very familiar with different lighting options. Probably why I was confused on the 18 beams with only 6 lens. Anyone else looking at the specs probably figured it out right away:) Anyway, I plan on ordering two more. In my opinion, I think the Hive is a lot of bang for the buck!
