"What's Not To Like?"

I've used this board on a few gigs now, and although I'm still learning to get around it, it's proven to be all it's advertised to be. The feedback elimination function is great to have and easy to use. Layout is simple. Effects are very useful. Screen is visible and maneuverable. I've tracked three shows now with an external SSD hard-drive (Glyph) with no problems at all. I take the SSD drive back to my studio, plug into my Mac Pro and in just a few seconds I've got the tracks loaded. I went ahead & purchased the SKB waterproof case for mine, as I hope to get many years of use out of this board. So far, no complaints at all.
The preamps seem to have a good quality & sound. Effects are great, with 6-channels of effects with delays, reverbs, or other useful goodies. Output signal seems solid. Nice to have a dedicated talkback mic input. Easy to view the parameters of each channel via the all-inclusive full-screen page, where you have all the parameters of that channel right in front of you.
Most useful features to me are the USB direct plug-in recording-to-SSD drive, tablet / iPad control, overall channel pages, and feedback eliminator. Often my gigs are on small stages, and feedback can be an issue. I also like to get "out front" when sound-checking. Recording to an external USB SSD drive is a breeze.
Ease of Use
If you're not familiar with mixing boards, you will have a slight learning curve. If you are familiar with mixing boards, you should have no problem. I've had some feedback issues with a couple of channels when the 'compressor' was engaged, but I'm still learning the settings and compressor response with select mics & inputs.
The product seems solidly built. Because of the nature of the product, I would think that the internal components should last a long time.
For what this board offers, it's definitely worth the price.
I've had no need for factory support.
