Possible dud, poor 1/4" connection.
I'm a frequent consumer of Behringer products, never had issues with their mixers and other devices. This however...not worth it. I run a not too complex live rig of Soft synths, click tracks and electric drums and drop a lot of 1/4" connections out to DI boxes. I was on the look for a quick fix for one DI giving me gripes and picked this guy up. The product itself is in good shape except for the 1/4 connection, it doesn't quite fit and click all the way. Without manually holding the cable in, the connection pops back out slightly producing a near non existant signal. I may have just got a dud but I don't have time to waste with shipping back for a replacement so I ended up purchasing a higher quality DI box that I've been happy with.
I'll look to take this one apart later and see if I can fix the connection not seating properly for the 1/4" input, and will update review then.

Its a Direct Box.
By James J. Ashforth II
With the Behringer DI400, theres not too much you can say. I bought it because I run bass and acoustic guitars directly into my board, and I need A direct box to go from HI-Z to Low, and out XLR into my mixing desk. This DB does exactly what it needs to do, and I actually ended up getting 2 from the dealer due to a shipping mishap!
These DBs dont do a whole lot extra, compared to some higher end DB's like Radial. The only 2 extra features are the parallel output, to run into an amp, and a ground/lift switch if you are getting some hum from a ground loop.
Can't imagine theres too much inside, so they're pretty sturdy.
A good cheap buy.

Not bad. Not bad at all.
By Briegal Nightwalker
I have a bedroom Studio that I use for recording and I don't have enough space to use really big equipment. This di box actually helped me. Now I don't have to listen to clean guitar and assume that it sounds good. I usually use an amp simulator on my computer but because of the latency I can't use the sound from my computer. Because of the steel box I can plug my guitar into it and then plug that box directly into my amplifier and actually know what I am playing. It may not be the same sound but I get a rough idea of what I'm doing. I highly recommend this product for any and all beginner musician or engineer who's looking to build a studio. I also have to think Glenn Fricker of Spectre Sound Studios for the idea.
