Really handy, used it to power a hdmi splitter from the USB port of a sky box rather than another mains plug behind the TV

Excellent case series, a little pricy and not the best looking but took my iPhone out of it after 18months and there's wasn't a mark on it.

Excellent value, upgraded my iMac with one of these, just be aware that TRIM isn't supported by the latest OSX . For those that know what TRIM is this has its own clean up firmware, which kicks in when the drive is idle. Makes a Mac even faster.

Works exactly as specified, some reviewers complain of the fact that both TVs sometimes briefly lose picture for a second if an input change on both outputs to the same source is selected. This is due to handshaking and usually occurs if a 2nd tv is switched to the same input as the 1st tv. For the source to determine what resolution it needs to sends it needs to handshake. I've had one of these in the past that didn't do this and it causes problems, often requiring the source device such as a set top box to reset.

Remote control performance is good, clear as to what input goes to output etc.

Loses a star for the randomness of the Ports, wish id picked one with all the inputs/outputs on one side as it's easier to cable manage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 1 Dec. 2013
I wasn't expecting much tbh, buts works perfectly, even over a hdmi to cat 5 extender setup. Both transmit and receiver IR modules work with a wide angle, handy when trying to hide away the modules to make the installation neat. A little expensive so loses a star but does do exactly what's required.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, just the job,, 23 Jan. 2012
I'm using this to control a BT vision box (grey version) remotely using the RF out, and works perfectly. Remote is responsive and the kit doesn't degrade the signal at all. You could potentially control other equipment using the same link. Only negative was that there wasn't any female gender aerial connectors supplied, but this was probably due to the rf connector of the vision box. All in all an excellent product and worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Buy, 12 Aug. 2009
After much deliberation between a few different TV's, I decided to purchase this one. I'm so glad I did as it is an excellent TV, feature packed and excellent value for money.

Out of the box the SD picture on both the built in freeview and freesat via HDMI is excellent. The Resolution + upscaling of SD pictures is a worthy feature. for instance the on screen text on a channel such as sky sports news is crisp and sharp, even at 37". There are plenty of pre set and advanced options such as backlight calibration to tweak things to suit your taste if required.

HD is superb, personally its the best HD picture I've seen for an LCD TV at this size/price. I have an Apple TV box connected to this set at 1080p, and viewing digital photos at full resolution is stunning.

There are plenty of HDMI ports, 3 on the back and one on the side, well placed for connecting camcorders/laptops etc. There's also a USB port, which will except FAT 32 pen drives, so the TV can play DivX films and photos directly off the stick.

Another feature I like is how narrow the frame is around the screen, compared to other 37" tv's. Even in a relatively small room, it doesn't over power and look out of place. At the moment its hanging up on the wall, displaying stunning HD, a great piece of kit.
