    Looks sketchy

    posted by JalleB on 06/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    CHEAP! Poor quality. Works as intended! Would be super useful if only I valued my house lower or dared to have it connected overnight. A decent fire insurance would help me sleep.
    Cons:
    Doesn't look safe - poor quality. So I don't dare to leave it on permanently so it defeats the purpose of buying it in the firs...

    posted by mikayeo on 12/19/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Value for money. I use this with my TV remote to turn ON and OFF my wireless headset. Use a non 'important' key of the TV remote to turn ON and OFF this unit so that it does not interfere with your TV functions.
    Cons:
    Did not come with any manuals but the advertisement for this unit in Dealextreme is good enough to understand
