Battery burner!

 

It works.

Overall product works as intended. The product is built with a nice metal housing which can be taken off of ever needed. Remember you will need to jailbreak if you want to use this for a ipod touch gen 4

This adapter eats up batter life! Make sure you always have it plugged so you don't drain your device in 15minutes. You can feel the heat coming from the draining power in the adapter

AGPtek Wii to HDMI 720P or 1080P HD Output Upscaling Converter

 

Works exactly as expected. Plug and play friendly

None so far

Consumer review by: TeCHm0N (newegg.com)

Works Correctly

 

Only used this twice. But so far I am impressed with this item.

Small and seemingly durable. Hard switch for 1080p to 720p works perfectly. Worked exactly as it should right out of the box

Audio has a slight hiss to it. But it is only used to hook older laptops it should not be a big issue

Product rocks

 

This was a gift to a staff member who lives in Alaska and when she received it she'd never been more excited. She immediately hooked it up and completely loves it. The cost was reasonable and it was shipped on time and arrived safely.

Cheap, but not great

 

The build quality of the monitor looked great, but the screen appeared to be heavily washed out. When you are viewing directly it looked okay at best... however still not as good as my OEM 1600x900 Dell monitor. I returned it today and purchased a high...
