Behringer equipment is always panned by the "experts" while in truth there is nothing much wrong with it. No, it isn't top rate stuff but things like patch bays either work or they don't - not exactly much to go wrong. I have one of these and it seems well built to me, brilliant German design and easy to use.
I hadn't used a patchbay before. I was curious to see how usefl it would be in a small home studio. Turns out very. No more bashing my head off the wall when I'm trying to rewire something. All in all good value for money.
