AlphaPix 16 E1.31 Controller December 12, 2018
Reviewer: Rick from Evans, GA United States  
As the first controller I have purchased, the bar is set pretty high for anything that comes later. Despite ordering this late in the year, it shipped as expected and arrived assembled and ready to run. The videos by HolidayCoro helped in testing and setup to get this integrated into my show quickly.

Excellent controller November 21, 2018
Reviewer: Chris B from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
Tough to beat for the price. Building your own version may be more expensive. Videos to side with setup are easy to follow and understand even with minimal technical know-how
