Good but absolutely not very good
t-j-b, 13.02.2014
I buy cheap Behringer products because they (often) are a very big bang for the buck.
The enclosure/parts all that physical stuff is cheap but it's working. What do you need more? I don't roll over a pedal with a car so I don't need all metal enclosures. Behringer stated in a forum that the plastic for the pedals is a special mix that they tested extensively. Music is not my job so I don't know how this Behringer pedals look like if you use them every day on the big stages. Regarding the electrical components I have to admit that as long as it sounds good I don't care if there is mojo stuff in it or not.
The pots are ok there is a resistance while turning so they don't get accidentally readjusted. I really like pedals with a lot of knobs to adjust everything so I like fiddling around with this pedal very much.

The one and only real downside of this pedal (why I actually replaced it) is the very nasty sounding noise when the sustain control is turned up to about 3/4.
Compressors are noisy in extreme settings but this noise is just horrible.
I now use a Boss CS-3 which is also noisy but in a good-sounding way. It sounds more "natural". It's hard to describe but it's not as harsh as the CS400.

+cheap
+does it's job
+lot's of knobs
-the horrible noise (at some settings)

Behringer CS400
Ian126, 16.10.2013
I already own a Behringer DC9, but after a ferw years service the LED seems to be giving up- so, after reading a few online reviews I opted for the Behringer CS 400 - which does look a little like a certain other pedal!.
The CS 400 has a plastic body- but I bought this for home/recording use- so no worries about amage- but, I think even for gigging this would be tough enough. We all know what compressors do, but what they do is very subtle, the DC9 gave my signal a huge boost- the CS400 doesnt do that but it does clean up the signal, and somehow "sweetens" the sound.
The level knob does give a boost, without any gain, which is useful, the tone dial is very subtle but I use it to dial back the bite from my tele.
The attack/sustain don't seem to adjust anything- perhaps they will work more on my Les Paul- time will tell

All in all, a sturdy, well made bit of kit, that does whatever it is that compressors do!
subtle, but its there
