THis looks like it will suit my needs for quite some time
Sounds great for a light controller! - Works pretty good too.
I am still learning DMX and the Obey, seems to do everything I want it to do!
Ease of Use
I have needed some help, there really is no directions for DMX - I am stumbling through it - but with help have several programs that make it real easy to use
Appears pretty solid
I think the cost / benefit ratio was very goode
