Replaced my home-built terminators

Pros: Black matches most light fixtures.

Cons: None

I built my own DMX terminators using some discarded mic cables. However, the ends were silver and clashed with the light fixtures. These are black and inexpensive and saved me from having to make any more on my own.

Great In Every Way!

Pros: - Inexpensive and cost effective
- Does what it is designed and intended to do
- Solid build quality
- Can't beat the price for a DMX terminator

Cons: As someone else mentioned, it would be nice if there was a small indication on the connector to notify you it's a terminator with a resistor inside, and cannot be used as a XLR end.

Great DMX terminator, works as described and intended, and the price can't be beat for a 3-pin connector with a resistor.

This product is ideal to use at the end of a long line of DMX chained lights. It's not necessary to have a terminator at the end of the chain, and is usually okay not to include one with fewer lights but, the more lights you add to the chain, the higher potential of having an issue somewhere. A DMX terminator will solve most issues involving a haywire light or a single head not responding fully/properly.

I added one of these to the end of my studio mood lighting chain, and while I had no issues without it, I now feel more comfortable that none of the lights should act up, and I can add more lights with confidence.

Essential Item

Pros: Works Great
Cheaper just to Buy

This is an essential item and should be used in every lighting system.
If you see fixtures that are operating weird or seem like they are not getting signal when you know your wiring is right try one of these at the last fixture. It may fix the issue and for the price how could you go wrong?
Keep a couple of these in your tool box.
