great effect, great value for money
I bought the swarm as a centre piece to my rig and I couldnt be happier with it. It has many programmes built in so you can choose exactly what part of the effects you wish to use brilliant for mobile work where multiple effects for different events are needed.

Great Lights and great price
Dance floor has 5 of these in a domino (5) pattern and linked together with DMX leads so they take their drive from one unit set to sound activation. Makes them all work in sync and they look the nutts.

Really not great
The lights are a bit disappointing in small venues the dots are too close together and in larger venues its just not bright enoughrnMy first broke on its first use and my replacement got used rarely but broke on its 4th outing just after the warranty ran out

Brilliant for one Light
For one light this absolutely kills it, I have played several underground parties with this, a smoke machine and a bit of up lighting. So many effects in one unit. needs a DMX controller to get maximum out of potential

Great All In One Light!
This light is brilliant! It has every effect you need and does them all very well. The sound active modes are great and really react to the music. The only problem I've found personally is that I wish the lights would stay on (maybe on a slow fade) when the bass drops out. If you're just using this light the room goes black every time a breakdown comes along. Apart from that This light is great if you want professional looking lighting on a budget.

Impressive light for low cost.
Fantastic light, well it's really 3 in 1, amazing light spread and takes up centre stage in rig. Well built. It's a heavy light so be careful where you place it, the reason I use it centre.

A Excellent Feature Light with Good Effects
The Chauvet Swarm 5 FX is an excellent light with many visual lighting effects which makes a good feature light. It is bright enough and easily fills the room doing the job of several lights with a fraction of the cost and effort to set up.

Brilliant bit of kit
I want another one so I can have them in synch. Keep them up in the air as the strobes are pretty bright. Bit of smoke and they are the business.

Amazing light best buy I've made yet. You can fill the room with one light. I 100% recommend this light u won't be disappointed. You have a key to switch on and off the laser so u don't blind anyone.

Versitile to say the least
With the sound to light programs you can select you can run these as a centre piece with all the bells and whistles or you can choose a softer function and have 2 room filling. A very versatile light and effect.

Great, very smart light
djkit.com always delivery really fast and are reliable. The light is a good buy, plenty of effect and I'm using it alongside a Chauvet Mini Katina and the 2 of them deliver the required punch for a small set up in a smaller venue.

Just the job
great little effect light I was a bit worried it would not be powerful enough, but I was wrong this is a great little multiple effect light I use it as a fill in light before the party gets started and then use my bigger fixtures but this would be equally as good running all night as a centre piece, also great if friends or family want to borrow some lights this is an all in one you don't mind lending out - with the sale price this was a bargain.....

These are truly amazing lights!!
Because these lights are 3 in 1 the effects you can obtain are stunning!! Coupled to a good smoke machine makes the effect even greater. I would recommend this product to anyone.

So good, i'm getting another one!
This is a REALLY GOOD LIGHT! It's got everything I wanted in it, a pretty impressive laser with about 5 or 6 different effects/pattens, RGBAW led's and it even allows you to trigger the device's 14 auto/soundactive modes via the DMX, really cool feature! It's not documented here, but it also comes with a key switch with 2 proper grooved keys for disabling the laser from being somehow missed, awesome! The light is so good, i'm going to buy another so I get a set of two to double the already HUGE wide angle throw of beams! Definitely recommend this light!

Great all-in-one light show, especially if its your only light
Start-up dj's could buy this effect (or two) and be set for many gigs, lights up a large venue no problems at all, great laser ariels when you add fog !

A useful acqusition
A good purchase for out wedding barns lighting linked up via a usb dmx converter to a PC. Pity that it was let down by a loose key switch mounting which locks on and off the laser beam.Otherwise 5 stars. Much better value for for money and better display than the ADJ Quad Phase I bought at the same time.
