    It's super effective :)

    posted by astroberi on 01/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Small little box enabling you to expand the number of HDMI ports. No power supply (works of HDMI) so no cable mess :) Automatic or manual input selection. Automatic works fine too :) For the price, you can't even get a manual HDMI switch. Good build quality.
    Cons:
    No cons yet, hopefully it will not fail soon :)

    Capable little matchbox!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This device plays everything I have tested it with. I have a large collection of mostly documentaries, encoded by different people using all kind of codecs. ALL play flawlessly, from Divx3, wma, 1080p mkv, even flv. It is an amazing little box :) Good proce...
    Cons:
    The main con is that the unit is advertised having a optical audio output. Unfortunately, this is only an "option" meaning, no ...

    A great bargain!

    posted by astroberi on 06/03/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It is very cheap! I actually bought 2 of these not to power a laptop but to connect 2 of them and make a symmetrical power source for a small audio amplifier. Build quality is very good concerning the price, I took mine out of the plastic casing to provide ...
    Cons:
    No cons so far, they work perfectly. There was a couple of days delay to ship them, DX probably didn't have them in stock, but...

    Powerfull WiFi

    posted by astroberi on 02/20/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very easy to install, good build quality, no problems and stable on my old XP machine which runs 24/7. Before this unit, I used a standard USB dongle without external antenna, could only pick up my own network. Now I have 7 available (and I live in a subur...
    Cons:
    No cons I can think of right now, don't have any problems with the device

    Yepp!

    posted by astroberi on 01/21/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I own the capture dongle for 6 months now. Installs and runs under Win7 (32 bit) no problem. We bought a total of 12, and use them to capture video from specialized subLux meteor observation cameras. This means that they run 12 hours or more continuously ev...
    Cons:
    Personally, I cant see any cons. Some people complaint that audio is not exactly Hi-Fi, but, for our application, we don't use ...

    Lots of juice :)

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

    Pros:
    The pros : Smartphones are power hungry. My Wildfire battery lasts about a day and half on busy days... with this battery I can go without a charger for almost 3 days. Very easy to install, fits perfectly. Recommended.
    Cons:
    Well, its large and heavy :) If you miss the old days and brick weight and size phones, this will remind you of the times gone ...

    A handy tester

    posted by astroberi on 05/29/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Testing phone and LAN cables is easy and simple, the unit tells you which connection is bad. The detachable remote part is very practical if you have the test cable already installer in walls etc. For the price, it is worth buying even if you have only one ...
    Cons:
    The only con I found is the connector holder on the units, which makes unplugging cables difficult. A quick cut with the modele...
