Performance of this product stinks
by GregT on 8/1/2008
I got it, tested, assumed it was faulty, got it replaced, same thing; getting a refund.
The product looks nice and sturdy, the controls are nice and easy, but the issue is the performance and the display quality.
The system is very very prone to interference. Line of sight, 20-30 feet and I already got enough interference that makes the picture jump few times a second, the speaker clicks constantly. Try to use it across a wall or few - good luck to you. Being 2.4GHz I figured maybe it's the phones or the wireless - so I tried it on battery power out of town in open area, at neighbors'' houses, no difference. Almost as it created it's own interference.
Also the display is viewable well only when straight in front of your face; any angle and the display looks really bad.
Too bad because the price and physical layout of the device were quite nice and I would love to keep it if it worked well.
