        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.

                    The Chauvet Swarm 5 is the perfect lighting effect for any party, club event, or musical performance. It's easy to set up and use, with a variety of settings to tailor to your specific needs. I particularly like the sound activated setting as it seems to compliment the audio well, but the automated setting works well and is the easiest to use. With the bulb design and spread on the Swarm, the light is able to gain a huge coverage zone. For the price, this is definitely one of the best options for a heightened entertainment experience.

                    This is a real hands-on product review from Sean @ Sam Ash Cerritos.
