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

Pros:
It does a great job of adjusting the input to any desired output voltage. Fine design, so it could be build into any project. Good build quality
Cons:
Not usable on my solar panel (I bought one that you could hook up to your car. But i needed the panel on a not so bright place, and tried this as a solution) Even in the brighter test conditions, i could not get this to work. I found a solution that works on my solar panel, so the solar panel is not at fault. When i hooked up this device to a power supply, it did a great job of giving a steady voltage, therefor I recommend against this as a solution for solar to power.
Other:
There is no description of the requirements, like input current / voltage. Perhaps I would not have bought this solution otherwise. I think this device can do a great job when provided with a steady power supply.
Bottomline:
Not a great solution for solar power conversion. A great solution to build an adjustable power supply.
