Having purchased other cheaper adapters that simply failed to provide a proper multi scart solution for my TV I wasn't expecting much from this one. However it worked straight out of the box is of solid construction and the scarts connect with a minimum of effort. Only thing to be aware of is you will need a free three pin power socket as this does require an adapter to be plugged in to power it. I now finally have scart pictures on my DVD VCR and TV (I use a TIVO box). This device switches through them all automatically without me having to leave my chair 5/5 !
