I used one for three years and I think it did a better job with movers than the Emphasis system I'm using now. Dedicated encoders make life much easier. Programming movers into the cue stack has a few interesting quirks that had me tearing out hair until I figured it out. It's not a difficult board to use, but one needs to spend a little quality time with it beforehand...Just running conventional lights it might be okay. I returned three of them as faulty before convincing the money people to buy a different brand - each had different errors that affected show quality, particularly when using multiple DMX devices. Cues were lost or corrupted, and other odd quirks. Back up your show regularly, if you can stand the long drive time saving onto a floppy disk.
