Works well. Ambient sound is a potential problem.

I bough tone of these to set up lightning in front of my house for Halloween. Bought some thunder sounds and loaded them on a spare Ipod. Hooked up some HUGE speakers through an amp, hung 5 75 watt spotlights in the trees and put the device in front of one of the speakers. Worked great! The only downside is that the device works with a microphone. So a) you have to put it in front of a speaker and b) when the local firetruck or police car comes down the street and hits the horn or siren, your "lightning" lights come on! I was able to set it so yelling kids didn't affect it much, but your results may vary. In summary, nice guizmo! Works as advertised. Wish it had a line-in or speaker-in instead of a microphone.
