Great for the money, but..

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
All I can say is BUY THE EXTRA WARRANTY! I have a feeling we might be using it at some point. We do travel with this in a roadcase.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Love the fact that we can have plenty of XLR inputs, 4 sub groups, nice sounding eq's, nice patching abilities, no crapy onboard Fx all in a small footprint.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to use. We are a working band that plays 150-300 seat rooms 2-3 times a Month. The board is perfect for our 5 piece cover group. We have a full time sound engineer that sets up the rack gear and mixer. He has nothing but good things to say about this mixer. He's mixed for some national acts and has used about every piece of gear made for live sound.
How is the tone?
I'm the guitar player for the band and our soundman was shocked at the sound quality when I handed him our new mixer. We had to replacea bunch of gear really fast on a small budget after we had a band member retire. That member owned a good portion of the PA.
How has it stood up over time?
The only problem after 9 Months has been subgroup 4 has a lower output volume than the others. We plan to have it serviced and we purchased the extended warranty because of the live use.
Your general opinion of this product.
It rocks but spend the money on the extra warranty coverage just incase. We've had one small glitch that we are working around but it's been a great board for the money. As with any mixer that you use live, buy a roadcase.
