    Comments about CHAUVET DJ SWARM5FX 3-in-1 Stage Lighting Effect:

    I bought this for a cover band playing wedding type gigs. It's a good light, fairly bright and offers a lot of bang for the buck. Just don't expect it to be the same as dedicated strobes, Lasers or moons etc. It is a compromise product, does a bit of everything but you are not getting pro level effects here.
    Lasers are a nice idea but a bit weak.
    Strobes I don't use but the circular pattern has limited options, again, better than nothing.

    That said, for the price you can't beat it.
    For portability and quick setup, again, can't beat it.
    I would buy it again for the same application. I woudl NOT buy this for a club install etc.
    Portability and quick setup with wide range of effects are what this light is about and it does all of that reasonably well for the cost.

    PS. Have not run it DMX, just sound active on the programs that have no strobe.

      I was looking for a DMX laser to add to my lighting setup when I stumbled across The Storm FX. WOW! For less than the price of a low end dmx laser I got Strobes, Moon effect and Lasers. The first 2 gigs people raved about it. It can fill a room...

        Added just one to our stage in our blues venue. Great addition to our LED spots. We leave it on Auto sound activated and kick it in when the dance floor gets going.
        Will probably add a second for complete floor coverage.

            After I used my first one I decided I wanted a second. I put one in Sound mode and the other in Slave mode connected by DMX cable and the light show is excellent.

                Comments about CHAUVET DJ SWARM5FX 3-in-1 Stage Lighting Effect:

                Neither unit arrived intact. One item lacked power cable and manual/documents. I cannot understand why these were sent in such condition. The outsides of the boxes were undamaged, so there is no indication the carrier mishandled these items.

                Contacted MF to return items.
