          Comments about Venue Thinpar64 10mm LED Lightweight Par Light:

          These fixtures are on the cheaper end of the spectrum when looking at LED DMX-controlled lights, but they're not cheap in performance. There's not much else to say about these things. The offer both DMX and power daisy-chaining, which is nice. They have RGB LEDs in them and can generate a multitude of colors and have simple a DMX channel controller scheme:

          > They can be set to just display a single color and have a fader control brightness.
          > They can be set to be controlled with 3 DMX channels to control the Red, Green, and Blue output values.
          > They can be set to be controlled with 7 DMX channels that control the RGB values, but also automatic color shifting, strobing, and sound sensitivity.

          Using the strobing function is a bit disappointing, though. If you want to use these as strobes, I would suggest getting a proper strobe light. Since they only have RGB diodes, the white isn't true white – it has a bluish tint to it. The speed functions are also slightly unbalanced. The fastest strobe speed is okay, but not as crisp and clean as a true strobe, and the slowest speed is still quite fast.
          Still, if you're just looking for fixtures to add some accent lighting with simple DMX controls, these are fantastic for the low price point.

            I play in a band. I carry a lot of equipment to our gig so space/portability is an important criteria to me so I chose this model over regular much bigger PAR64. It works perfectly, it is bright, it is of minimal size, easy to carry.

            I've used them inside and outside for gig and for home parties as well, with equal good result.

            A bit expensive you may think but totally worth it.
            I bought them last year and I will buy more of these in the near future...

              Comments about Venue Thinpar64 10mm LED Lightweight Par Light:

              I purchased these for a new underpowered college theater running ETC board and equipment. No hassle beyond setting DMX addresses on all units. They power up instantly and play well with conventional instruments. Dial in any color you want -- no gels, and no dimmers! Output comparable to a standard 500 par-can which requires a dimmer rack and dedicated circuitry.

              Very minimal power required and very little heat on stage.

              Be advised: these power up faster than conventionals. If that's an issue, plan on doing lots of multi-step cues to accomodate this. Also, they can be inconsistent at low light levels. These are flood lights, not spots. There are no clips to attach barn doors or top hats.

              Be advised #2: these require 3-pin XLR, unlike most DMX rigs that require 5-pin. Invest in adaptors and dedicated 3-pin cables from Chauvet, as well as dongles if you're strapping a mess o' fixtures in a chain. Even with these additions, they're still a heck of a lot cheaper than par-cans and dimmer racks.

                  Comments about Venue Thinpar64 10mm LED Lightweight Par Light:

                  We use these units for our band's live shows and they work great. They're easy to set up and operate smoothly throughout the performance. They're very lightweight so we can mount them on top of the mains out front, which is ideal for lighting up the musicians on stage. A word of caution if you're looking at another company's LED pars and not planning to employ a controller. Due to static internal programming (non- configurable), the operation of sound active mode on some LED pars differs in a significant way from that of the Venue units. Under sound active mode on the Venue LED par, threshold sounds will trigger a color change but the light always stays on. On other LED pars I've seen, threshold sounds will trigger a color change in the same way but if the sound level falls below the threshold, the light will turn off after a few seconds. Depending on how frequent you want color changes to be, this can be undesirable during a live show because the light may switch off during quieter portions of a song. Make sure you take this characteristic into consideration when deciding which LED pars to buy. We found that the Venue units work best for the way we want to light the stage.

                    Best Par64 LED for the buck. I ordered 12 of these and they all came packed very well.When I placed the order over the phone the sales person was excellent and assured me they would be packaged with care. I read horror stories from other reviews and luckily mine all arrived in great working condition. OK lets get to operation! First they are very bright. I am using a OBEY 40 controller (also from MF) and set the lights up in DMX mode 7 channel. DMX cables are a must if you want them to work properly. Do not scrimp on the cables. MF has great prices on the proper cables. The instructions with the lights were OK could have been written a little better but I really got the best set up info from U-Tube. There are lots of tutorials on U-tube that take the mystery out of getting the most from your lights. Highly recommend a little homework on DMX controls if you are new to this type of lighting. Each light has a pass thru for DMX control (excellent) and also an extra AC mains for stringing the power from light to light also excellent. I was up and running in less then two hours after figuring out the channels again U-tube video's the best help. They are very light weight but this comes with a penalty! PLASTIC lots of it! The only metal is the U-shaped clamp that holds the light fixture. Extreme care is going to be your best friend if you want these to hold up. I'm the only person in the band that handles the lights as they are my investment so will see after a year's worth of jobs how they hold up! The sales person did recommend the 2 year extended warranty which covers everything no questions asked. Even if a light tree gets knocked over by a drunken patron at the many bars we play. Hoping I never need it but you never know! Only used on two jobs so far and no problems. Whole system only uses 3 amps and that's all lights full on. No heat to speak of and the 7 colours they list on the box is just a starting point. Use your imagination when mixing the LED colour's and the sky's the limit. I'm very pleased so far with my purchase.

                      Been using these 64's for about a year now indoors and outdoors in various situations. They have been reliable since day 1. I am not wanting for more luminous output with these like I have other LED fixtures in the past - they're bright! The Thinpar also has a wider beam and field angle compared to the Chauvet Slimpar series. The 0.25A (@120V) power draw on these is great and allows me to use more equipment on a standard 20A circuit.
