If you want to spend over $ 50, this would be a better choice (9 x 10) for $ 59.99, and I have used a bunch of these in very adverse conditions:  https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=612749&gclid=CjwKCAjwi6TYBRAYEiwAOeH7GVE1DOCa2NsnNDGG-2Yr2bdOl0267kDsG-PWCmH6haFtgkkaD-0WHBoCvIkQAvD_BwE

Again, I don't need the higher output, and some others do not as well.

I have 12 like this and they are very bright, smooth dimming and inexpensive. Been using them for years.

For the intended purpose, they are just fine!  Yes, they are cheap, which means you can have light and even have enough budget left over for proper control.  This light 10 year ago would have cost 10X as much without all of the bells and whistles.  It's amazing how technology has advanced.
Yes, in almost all aspects of what we do. I still remember the 70/80's and can't believe what we would go thru for a one-night gig. Glad I did it, but never again.
I now appreciate the ability to set up very little gear and play music.

I have 18 pf the Monoprice 9x10 LED pars and they've been great.  I have had to re-epoxy several of the mounting bracket inserts over time.. Easy enough and on the job, a tie wrap does the trick. For me they've been great.

Ugh. I got started with "real" gigging in the 90's and we were bringing 36k of 1K pars plus 2 ACL bars and 2-4 crowd lights (500w halogen floods) for a club show. This was in conjunction with the 4 (Showco SS1's) over 3 (homemade 218's) per side PA. 2 full size consoles, 12 wedges, fully multipinned 200ft split snake with transformers. All in an overloaded 24 foot ex-ryder box truck. We did it with the guys and no AC in Texas.

I'm so glad that shit is over.
