    We're using an older 19" one for rehearsing and monitoring live. I think it's a good unit for the price, very reliable so far.
    Downside: it has the usual Behringer channel crosstalk (on higher volumes).

    There's an 8 channel one that just sucks. The 4 channel is one of the few products that is actually worth a fuck.

    I like mine ok...then again, I've never really used it in an environment to where more than one channel was used at once. I have used it on and off to have multiple signals coming into a single mix (pc out & firepod out).

    Seems fine to me.

    Another successful user here. Mine runs off of my Control 24 and sounds fine.

    Go for it.

    I have one of the 4-ch units. Great for tracking. Reliable, feature packed, and low cost.
    If someone breaks it it'll be cheap and easy to replace.
    I would not use it for critical listening. Too much noise and coloration.

    Got one. Its only for tracking. So coloration/noise isnt a problem.

    I've had mine for 5 years or so...
    I use it all the time for tracking. Never had an issue with it.

    The old mixer I had by them on the other hand....
