    Pros: It is cheap and it works. Es barato y funciona. Cons: Make it work is not as simple as plugging. Being a simple plate, seems to be broken easily, especially the power supply connector. Hacerlo funcionar no es tan sencillo como enchufarlo. Al ser una plaquita muy simple, parece que se va a romper fácilmente, especialmente, el conector... Read more

Cons: The building quality is not t... Read more
