I'm hoping to get several years of good service from this snake. At some point, I will buy a nice digital snake and this will most likely be sent out with smaller sound systems.
Sound
Okay... It's a snake, so most people aren't thinking about how it will sound, but cable quality can have a huge impact on the sound of a band. This snake is decent, but it isn't made from top-of-the-line materials, so the sound quality isn't perfect. On the other hand, in live settings, such as small to mid-sized clubs, it will be hard to tell the difference between this snake and many others priced much higher.
Features
24 xlr's and 4 TRS's... pretty much says it all.
Ease of Use
It's a snake, only a reel would make it easier to use.
Quality
You get what you pay for. I needed a 100' snake, fast, and I didn't have a lot of dough. The XLR connectors on the fan, seem a little cheaper than I would prefer, but then again, the price was pretty low.
Value
The price was right, the length was right, the number of ins and outs was right... It should last for quite a long time if it is treated right. At least until I can afford a really nice digital snake.
Manufacturer Support
I haven't had to talk to the support folks yet. I mean, it's a snake... not too difficult to figure out.
The Wow Factor
It's not too sexy, it's a snake! Not so much a "want it" item as it is a "need it" item.
