Powered 9 10watt floods January 27, 2017
Reviewer: Jesse Nietzer from South Plainfield, NJ United States  
Last year,  I started with a 12 channel DMX controller as my only computerized part of my light display. This year I added many more RGB lights, and wanted to have 9 10 watt floods. This controller was very easy to set up and worked great throughout the season. It is also nice having led indicator lights for the channels so that you know if it is the controller or your wiring to the lights that is malfunctioning (or if your color order needs to be corrected). This is a very well made product for a great price.

Great Controller December 27, 2016
Reviewer: Tony Boone from irmo, SC United States  
Very effective controller and easy to hook up.  Would be nice if the terminal connections for the lights were removable as they are on the alphapix controllers.
