5 of 5 My favorite controller December 19, 2021
Reviewer: Chuck from MA, United States  
I have 6 of these w/ LRR and HinksPix Pro CPUs in service.  Great xlights integration, well built, no concerns or issues.

Unless you know you need 48 ports at one spot, this is the most versatile configuration because of the ability to add a couple of outposts.

Be sure you have them install the long range board, you'll probably want it eventually and it doesn't cost much extra.

Also be sure you have plugs for any unused ports.  Great way to protect your investment.

5 of 5 Great control unit July 28, 2021
Reviewer: California Dreamer from Sacramento, CA United States  
I have a fairly large display at Christmas that uses 6 different controllers.  This unit will replace one of the controllers and control 5 additional display elements including two additional MegaTrees.  I have tested the controller and it works great.  It will provide a single controller for one side of my yard.

5 of 5 Big Mega Tree Coming UP April 21, 2021
Reviewer: Manuel Fullana from San Juan, San Juan Puerto Rico  
Using this for a large Mega Tree setup that I'm planning to put up this year.  Have had some previous experience with the HinksPix Pro CPU and just knew I had to have it...  Assembly of all the components is very neat...
