          This light, hands down, is the most popular and best light available on the current market. The Swarm 5FX covers a huge area and packs multiple effects in one affordable box. A must have!

              I cannot keep these lights in stock !!!! This is easily my favorite light and those of my fellow employees as well. I believe we each have one or two in our lighting rigs. No sooner do I set another one back up from selling out (and having to get another shipment because they all get sold within the week), I then sell the one I just took out of the box to display if not within a few hours but the next day.These are awesome!

                Three light effects in one box. Supper portable and easy to set up. Fully controllable and reliable. Why buy 3 lights when you can just get one and do the job? This is a real hands on review by Nathan at Sam Ash Canoga Park.

                  This the best light that I've seen in a low price point. You get a strobe light, laser and the moonflower effect. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash.
