"Lousy. Hard to set up. Tech support is obtuse."0.5 starson by warjo
Pros: It's great to be able to show images on the TV Screen.
Cons: Doesn't have controls that show up on computer screen. Has lousy setup instructions.
Summary: I bought the machine hoping to show images from my hard drive on the TV set, where people could sit back and look at them. I also hoped to be able to play music stored on my computer through my stereo system. After calling for help a few times, I did finally get slide shows working. Then I found out you can control the device only through a television set. So you have to have the TV and Stereo in the same room to play music at all.
I used it a few times for pictures. Then I had to reformat my hard drive, and in the process wiped out the unit's installation on my lapttop. I tried to install it again, and it wouldn't install. I called for help and spent about an hour with somebody who didn't seem to be able to answer direct questions, but rather just listen and then go to the manual and try to pick an answer that seemed to apply. I finally typed, "I'm out of time," and disconnected. An hour later I got a phone call from somebody telling me the device is out of warranty, and it would cost me $29.95 for assistance. I didn't go for it.
I really feel I have been cheated.
