I have had 10 of these units for the past 3-4 years (Mk1) and toped up with 6 more (Mk2) within the last year or so, had no real issues only that they blow fuses quite regularly and 1 did get returned (Mk1) under the 3 year warranty as it failed to come back on. This as always with Thomann was easy and fast. They have a spare fuse holder in the IEC connector so I keep fuses in them for when they blow, i probably use the lights 10 times a year for 2 days at a time and would estimate that every other time they are out a fuse blows.
If you are using the lights to uplight a wall, the stands do get in the way and are not tall enough to allow an XLR to sit in the DMX socket without caching the floor, I have got around this by adding some stands, but if you are flying these or using them as a general wash this isn't an issue.
The main feature that is missing which is a real pain for me, is the ability to set a solid colour. You have the ability in standalone mode to set either "Fade" which fades through the colour spectrum at a chosen speed, "Sound" which plays back patterns in time with music or "Colour" which I would expect to be able to set for instance red or blue, so the light stays on a pre selected colour but this setting scrolls through different colours without fading or the ability to adjust the speed. So the only way to keep the lights on lets say red all the time, is to DMX them together and have a control desk, a real pain if you have 16 lights around a marquee and you want to alternate red and white, especially if you are uplighting the walls as the addition of the DMX lead means you need an additional stand to get the angle right with out the DMX cable hitting the floor.
All in all a very nice light but the lack of a solid colour option means that they are sometimes a pain to use. Not really recommended for architectural use as the fuses do blow.

Great value gig lights
Declan Q. on 17.07.2013
Bought 2 of these for giggin with my band (2-4) nights a week. They're nice and small and affordable but you get so much for your money. They're easier to case, transport and use than cans. Way more effective when put up as high as possible on a stand. Also less likely to blind your eyes when up high. 2 of these will fill any normal stage or dancefloor with colour. They vary their patterns nicely. They blew fuses very quickly but haven't since I replaced them, but should always carry spares. Compared with all other lights in similar price ranges that I've worked with, for all round light and colour, for non-lighting people, I couldn't recommend these more for bands and DJs.
