Good little fogger
Dan Dan the sound man 12.04.2018
I got this for a small theater production where all I needed was a small fog machine that was quick to setup and simple to use. It was great for that, very easy to setup and operate using the one button to go.
It produces and good cloud of fog considering it's size and price however when you use it, it very quickly cools down and you have to wait for it to warm up again before you can use it again.
So for a small party or for an effect this is a good little fog machine.
However it does have it's drawbacks. This isn't a fog machine you can turn on set what you want and forget about it till the end, you have to press the button every time you want fog. Also although it does produce a good amount of fog for it's size and price, it's won't fill a big room very quickly.
The lead for the button is a good length so you can position it away from where you are and still control it and the button does have a magnet on the back to hold it in place.
Overall it is a good fog machine for the money but lacking some of the features of the bigger more expensive one.

A smoke monster
Marco_erre 18.07.2017
You will not believe how much smoke this micro machine can spit out. it takes something like 4 minutes to warm up and load the first shot, but one it is going it takes a few less and this thing can get a huge amount of fog in a medium venue, if you keep pressing the button.

perks: very light, huge amount of smoke, very very small liquid usage, long distance shot

defects: a little slow to warm up, the power cord is way too short, there is no "auto shoot" on the machine, you have to actively press the button, and while you are on stage is not always comfortable, a little noisy.

anyway, for the price, it is way more than expected.
i got 2 and they can really get a medium venue totally foggy.

Awesome Machine for its size and price
TheRacingLion 15.04.2020
Great and fast output. There is a bit of waiting time between active times and it might take a bit to first heat up but when it goes, it goes.

Does not use too much fog fluid and fills a small room very fast, bought it for mobile dj and home use, and coulnd't ask for better machine.

The only con I see is I wish both the cables were removable, or at least the power one, because the power cable is a bit short for some situations, but for the price I am happy with what I got.

Great for outdoor parties
Howard 12.05.2020
I bought this for one of our annual summer parties to add a bit of drama to the lights when the sun goes down. It's not suitable for a stage show, but good fun and works well enough for a small gathering. Don't expect a huge fog bank and you won't be disappointed. The reservoir holds enough for a reasonable amount of smoke. The trick is not to hold the footswitch down, but to add smoke in short bursts with a short rest in between each burst.
