Stage Right Stage Wash 15 Watt x 12 LED PAR Stage Light (RGBWA)
At home on medium to large stages, the addition of Amber and UV diodes give these new PAR cans a deeper, richer color hue on par (pun intended) with traditional halogen and tungsten elements. The low power requirement means that you can safely use 2-3 times as many fixtures on one breaker than with incandescent bulbs. Enjoy smooth fades and color changes with the 1.3kHz, flicker-free, dimming. Suitable for schools, houses of worship, event production, and rental houses, the all metal housing make these units robust and roadworthy. Easily useable as a plug and play stand-alone light with user defined colors and memory at power off or as a master/slave running color jump, gradient, or pulse. Fully DMX512 capable.

Questions and Answers
Opening these fixtures I loved them immediately. They seemed heavy and seemed well-built. The fans are a bit loud and the producer complained a bit about the noise but the audiences so far have said nothing. These lights worked fantastically at first the only real negative was the inability to shutter the lights, but not a deal-breaker by any means.
And then the LEDs started dying.
SL lost its blue. Then CSL lost its blue. CSR followed suit this week and SL and CSL have also lost their greens. I've had to adjust all my light designs and am now relying almost 100% on the white LEDs with a splash of yellow and red so it's not painful. And frankly, I'm holding my breath until those start to burn out as well. The worst part is they didn't just "go" one day. Half of the blue LEDs (on the SR side of the fixture) would blink on and off until they stopped working all together. The other half followed suit within a few days. All but one happened during performances and they were quite distracting to the actors and the audience.
I know I should try to RMA these fixtures but I'm still relying on these four fixtures as a stage wash and we can't take them down to send them back and be without lights. That's the downside to being a small non-profit we don't have any spares so my hands are tied until the season ends in October.
I knew I was taking a gamble on 1st generation fixtures but I didn't expect a failure rate of 75%. Aside from these and the LED light bar, the other (cheaper) Monoprice lights I ordered (Par-64, and 10w x 9 LED) have held up and performed flawlessly. I guess a higher price doesn't always mean higher quality. I don't mean this review to be a detraction against Monoprice, I'm hoping they can use this information to work with the manufacturer to resolve this in future generations of the product. If it wasn't for the current reliability I would order more of these in a heartbeat.
Great color mixing with the addition of W and Y to the standard RGB
Energy savings / run cool to the touch
CONS: Blue and Green LEDs began shorting and/or burning out after only two weeks 75% failure rate on fixtures.
Fans are quite loud
Built-in programming not accessible via DMX for some reason
This was a big purchase and project. Its embarrassing and infuriating to have the lights fail after just 6 months.
The led's are continuing to dye out. Some of the lights have multiple led settings failures. Out of the 11 lights that have been and need to be returned, 5 have lost amber, 3 have lost green, 2 have half the blue showing up. When I run the white RGB 7 of the figures have failures... Half white/half purple / half white / half amber.
I did send two back already and the company was helpful and sent two replacement lights. They were the next generation 18 watt lights. They work well so far. They are much louder then the previous version.
I'm awaiting resolution for the remaining 9 lights that have failed. Customer service has been helpful.
