I'm a solo musician that gigs in dark corners of dark bars. I needed something to add light and color to my stage areas without adding another trip to the car for lighting gear. I'm extremely happy with the Colorstrip Mini so far. First off, the portability is great. Its about 19" long and light as a feather, seems very well constructed too. I just toss it in my gear box with cables, etc. Also, at $100 its an easy investment decision considering what it provides. I just set it on the floor out in front of me, pointed at my chest (the adjustable mounting brackets double well as a floor stand). In my opinion, it is SUPER bright. Its amazing how such a physically small light source will wash the average size performance area especially if the room is dark. I personally don't find it to be too obtrusive having been in front of stage lights before but could see someone with sensitive eyes feeling differently. I can still easily see what's going on with my pedals on the floor and my mixing board. However, if you stare at it dead on, you will see "sun spots" when you look away. A little common sense helps avoid this issue. I currently use the Colorstrip only as a standalone unit in its "Sound Active" modes. Other options include Master / Slave functionality (daisy chain up to 30+ units) and DMX control. Chauvet even makes a foot controller for it. I've been pretty happy with the internal programming for my purposes. You can do anything from a very subtle color-fading effect (022) to extremely dynamic, beat-following programs (008, 009) . The built-in mic cues the program changes very responsively. As soon as a beat kicks in, it is following right along (1...2...3...4..., Red...Green...Blue...Yellow, etc.) Some of the programs follow the beat but with more gradual color changes (013, 015) or a clubby "lens- flipping" effect (012). There is even a "shuffle" program (023) that randomly runs through all the other programs. My only gripe with the programming is that the sound active functions kind of keep on running randomly even when the music stops. I would like to see it just stay on the color it was on when the song ended until it picks up significant sound again. Overall, I'm having a lot of fun with it and might add one or two more down the road.

I purchased two of these lights fo my band. Right out of the box one of them didn't work so I needed to send it back. After about three shows the other one quit working also. I think these lights may be a decent option if they are placed in your setup and not moved, but they do not stand up to road abuse. When they work, they work well and maybe I just have bad luck with chauvet products, but I will definately spend more money to get something else before I purchase chauvet again.

    I use it for karaoke on the front deck, it's cool yet very bright, great light throw to see the singer. Great price for it being so powerful, I've had it for 3 years and it was used.We frequently have get togethers for cookouts. We also bought the SINGTRIX karaoke machine and it's an amazing tool to get everyone involved.

        They lights were very good at first but after about 2 years the blue LED's started to fail and now we have some that don't have any blue LED's on and the green are starting to fail as well.

          Great little lights!! These are simple, versatile and super effective. We play mostly small to medium sized clubs every weekend and use these on the floor because of limited room for trees. They work terrifically! Nice presets and linkable as well. They have been super sturdy.

          The description mentions LASERS and "variance free" which only applies to LASERS. This unit does NOT use LASER lights. Inaccurate product description.

            As with almost everything I have ever gotten from MF this light strip was a great purchase. I own other chauvet products and this was no exception to being a good quality product. I intend to purchase another mini- strip to go with this one for a bigger and better effect. I have owned this one for a couple of years and haven't had one minutes trouble out of it. It has held up great through the mud the blood and the beer of bar room playing.

              Nice little lights with cool programs but really not suited for a large or complicated show. We tried to coordinate these as supplemental back lighting for a large production and the lights struggled to keep up. They couldn't hold our program from the master controller and "reset" or lost all input after each show. Very Frustrating!

              I bought (2) restock colorstrip minis. I was told everything was included and the lights work just like new. Well, the lights worked fine, but I did not receive large mounting brackets for uplighting application. No power cord jumper for one of the lights. No flying hardware for the other. Basically, not shipped complete. Called in to Ccustomer service and was told the parts would ship out. That was 3 weeks ago. Still no parts.

                Bought a couple of these to light those occasional small dark stages. They are much brighter than I expected. I link them together with a DMX cable in master/slave mode using sound chase. The only real complaint is that when the music ends, they go into a random flash sequence. It would be best if they just held the color they were on when the song stops. Other than that, they are small, light, easy to set up and transport, and bright enough for the intended purpose.
