A 1 man band, is what this thing is! I just use this at home mainly, or with friends for a party. This is the only light you need for that! Adds a lot to my cosmic ping pong setup! Took it to a friend's house for a pool party after the sun went down. Crazy good coverage. Looks killer through fog or smoke! The only weak points on it are the UV wash isn't all that bright & I would like the sound sensitivity to be a little better even with the sensitivity all the way up. The other wash colors are great! Not a deal breaker by any means for me on this. The white "strobes" don't really strobe a lot in my opinion. They're almost more of a white wash, than strobes. I actually prefer this because strobes can get annoying quick. Considering all the great effects this does, and it can possibly be the only light you need for small stuff, it's a great value. I do feel Chauvet should've thrown in the remote at this price point, but I only use it in sound active mode. One last thing, I like how the programs are set up. They basically turn off or solo different effects. The white LEDs bugging you? Pick the program (listed in the manual) that turns them off, but leaves the others on. Can't use lasers at your gig? Turn them off, but leave everything else on. Not sure if you can turn the individual laser colors off. Anywho, I think it's the best multi effects light out there. I had an ADJ Stinger 2 that I sent back because the green laser went out after a month. I decided to try this & I think it blows the Stinger out of the water! I tend to be more of a fan of ADJ's stuff, but Chauvet knocked it out with this fixture!
