Great product, just what you would expect

This was easy to setup and use. There are lots of extra room if you want to connect multiple strips. I would certainly recommend these. I purchased two and plan on buying more.

Good value; XLR tails sold separately

Pleased overall with the device and its bang for the buck. You'll need to supply your own DMX cable (I just cut a 5 foot cable in half and wired in the bare ends)

Online documentation is decent, but misses one key detail: to set the starting DMX address, you must press *and hold* the button under each digit for a few seconds until the digit begins to blink, then adjust to the desired value.

Works..mostly

I am running these with the LED NEON FLEX. Works fine. Chained 5 together with DMX for 5 seperate controls. At first they seem cheap, 1 of them the green channel does not work. I am working on getting it replaced. Not a huge issue for me in particular as the NEON only uses V, R, G, B. These support a W channel. So i skippped over the green channel and re-addressed it to use the W channel as the G one.
