          We are living in the best time for lighting. With the cost of electronics going down and the quality coming up, we as the consumer are winning. I really love this light. It has a ton of versatility and makes any room a party. I have personally sold over 50 of these e bad boys and there is no end in sight. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to "Liven-Up" their show. And hey, it gets everyone dancing. Which leads to a longer party and more time to do what you do best, entertain!

            This light is nothing shy of amazing. It has great coverage and is bright. The laser and strobe effects are an amazing addition to the already cool RGBAW LED effect. Any mobile DJ or club should pick up at least 2 of these.

              I just installed these at a local club recently and they are amazing. Not only are the LED patterns amazing, but you have the additional strobe function built in as well. Makes for a great light to get the party going and for those late nights at the club with when the fog machine is pumping.

              Comments about Chauvet DJ Swarm 5 FX:

              One of the best effect lights Chauvet puts out. Strobe, laser and color in one unit. DMX programmable, sound responsive, autorun. You can set it to react to sound and forget the programming or, if you're DMX savvy, you can program a terrific light show that's your own custom look.

                If you're a musician or dj looking for a great first light, the Swarm 5 is an excellent choice. It is also a great addition to any lighting rig, but the reason I say it's a great first light is, it does a lot. This is the closest thing to a full lighting show in one package that I have seen yet. It is very bright and can cover a large area, and the variety of effects it produces is great. It sounds cliché, but it's like 3 lights in 1 with the LEDs, laser, and strobe. The lasers create a very cool, visually appealing pattern. Check out video demos, or better yet come see this light in person to see the full effect. Just add a fog machine and this light is enough to make a visually exciting show.

                  IF you short on cash and need just one DJ Light for a party The swarm 5FX is the way to go hands down.Its three lights in one with a laser,strobe and moonflower led.The strobes are amazingly very bright and something I need to turn them off.However Chauvet has made it very user friendly in programming some awesome light shows to showcase the beauty of this and how it can impact an event.It is the one light I get to my clients that hire me for a DJ GIG who wants DJ lights but cannot pay for my separate DJ Lights Package.

                  The Chauvet Swarm 5 combines everything that you would want in lighting into one portable and potent unit. It has LEDs, lasers, and strobe that can be DMX controlled, set to run randomly on demo mode, static, or audio-controlled.
                  There are not many other products on the market that are going to give everything that you need in one lighting fixture, and definitely not at that price. I like the Swarm 5 because of its ease of use and adaptability for any scenario.

                    Well what can you really say about a lighting system other than this one is easy to setup and use and can really light up a room. Run it independently or with you dmx for more control. Its up to you. They run cool so you don't have to worry about heating up the room. So worth the money, yet so affordable!
