    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!

    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:

      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.

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

        I added two of these to my light show and I really like them. If you don't use fog/smoke you will probably be wondering why people buy them, add a smoke machine and you see the beams of light that actually throw pretty far. It would be nice if they came with a remote if you don't have a pro set up light mixer.

                  LED and lightweight are a plus. Has up to 20 channels however a bit difficult to navigate through all the features/lighting options. Not extremely bright but can easily cover a small to medium dance floor and stimulate your party crowd. Affordable and worth the purchase.
