Chauvet Xpress512 DMX interface
Very early days as only got it a fortnight ago. Did some market research, watched the on-line training videos and talked to a couple of folks who use it before purchasing. I've found it fairly intuitive so far, my fixtures are responding as expected for the few basic scenes I've programmed using the steps or generator functions and the couple of q's I've had on my fixture profiles have been quickly answered by either of Chauvet technical support. As stated, it's early days but I'm very pleased with the results so far.

Looked at loads of options (and bought many) for our wedding barns. We wanted something special, and the ability to do sound to light shows good wifi remote control and so forth. Price was more than I wanted to pay, but well worth it. can now control lighting from another country on IPad (subject to wifi and port forwarding etc). Many say its complicated but I found it much more easy than the ADJ My DMX which still sits in its box. Does crash occasionaly resulting in a 20 sec blackout, a bit embarrassing and feel it is something to do with the Live mobile Ipad app. Not many updates, this is both good and bad. Would have loved joy stick connectivity for moving heads. In programming shows in a big venue, not always possible to see the light you are programming from the control desk, USB to wifi converters are ok but not that reliable but do assist in this for preshow programming. Have done some great sound and light shows synced through the program for the entrance of the bride.
