1.0 out of 5 stars More junk from China, January 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
EDIT: Worse, the cable didn't die -- it killed the Displayport jack on my brand new 4K monitor!

Buy a VESA certified cable, not this knock off garbage.
The only one I can find on Amazon is the Accell B143B-003J.

Like others have posted, the cable died after just two weeks.
I accidentally ordered two, maybe I'll get lucky with the other one.
It's a CABLE. How hard can it be, China???

This is the stand-alone receiver for the transmitter/receiver pair sold here: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OCJ1AZE

The review on the other page says it all, but if you already have a transmitter/receiver, be aware that the stand-alone receivers have a different IP address than what he manual indicates. Look for a sticker on the bottom of the unit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great setup at a reasonable price., August 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They perform well and unlike my CAT-based non-IP baluns from Monoprice and the like, they aren't affected by things like nearby lightning -- and so far they seem to be lasting longer. Polok (the seller) is also extremely responsive to inquiries. I am running them on a dedicated gig switch. I had them on a gig switch with the rest of my network but the traffic impact was severe (my network is pretty heavily loaded as it is).

Out of the box they have a 192.168.168.xx network range. If you change your computer to that range, you can hit them with HTTP and assign new IPs and MAC addresses. In this kit they will have .55 (transmitter) and .56 (receiver) addresses by default.

The diagrams and some of the descriptions and comments above are a little misleading, I think. Polok confirmed you can connect 253 receivers to a network with one transmitter. The receivers are sold here stand-alone: http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P15KKQ8

Note that the stand-alone receivers include the same instruction manual as the transmitter/receiver pair, and apparently the individual receivers get a different default IP -- there is a sticker on the bottom of the unit. I wasted several hours trying to connect before I noticed the sticker!


Cheap Drones 5.8GHz FPV White Capped Straight SMA Antenna Combo Set
Cheap Drones 5.8GHz FPV White Capped Straight SMA Antenna Combo Set

2.0 out of 5 stars These are LHCP, March 16, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really wished these were better, it's difficult to find reasonably priced cloverleaf antennas in the US.

First of all, these are SMA as it states at the top of the page. The description further down the page says RP-SMA which is incorrect. The description also says RHCP (right-hand circular polarization) -- these are LEFT polarized. You will have a lot of trouble receiving a signal if the direction is mismatched. The direction does change whenever the signal bounces but RHCP is standard, these are LHCP. Additionally, there is a rumor that the Chinese factories are using an incorrect spec for their LHCP designs, and even though I used the matched pair of LHCP, reception was indeed much worse than when I was running my earlier RHCP set.

In short, I'd recommend you keep looking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great!, March 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MatCat FPV LC Filter (Toy)
Bit pricey for what it is but it worked great. Had an OSD/video setup that was so noisy it was unusable. I just ran the transmitter power through this and that cleaned it up completely -- didn't even have to change around the wiring to also route video through it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Product not as pictured, February 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The units I received are NOT as pictured -- they do not have the eight pins/pads along the top (labeled JP6) in the product photo. The board as shipped is unable to display RSSI (radio receiver signal strength), battery current, and battery voltage information. I have attached the photo of the products as delivered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Minimally adequate, February 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not a lot of options if you need something like this. It stores AVI files and the compression quality is terrible. It can do 30FPS but the compression gets worse, apparently in an attempt to maintain the same file size. We use this for recording FPV (first person view) video transmissions on RC planes and quads so that means we have to use battery power. Be aware it doesn't like dropping below about 11.5V so a 4S battery is a better choice along with a power regulator to maintain 12V. It uses a huge amount of power for what it does -- right around the full 1 amp of the power adapter's stated rating. It's too bad the video-out can't be disabled, that would probably save a lot of power. The manual is the typical indecipherable "Chinglish" translation. I really want to give it two stars, but it seems sturdy and it does work, if minimally.

3.0 out of 5 stars The locking slot on the BNC side is pretty small and unhooks easily, January 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Both sides are fairly loose. The locking slot on the BNC side is pretty small and unhooks easily, and the RCA outer ground is so loose I actually had to tape the connector to the monitor to ensure it remained connected. But when you need it, you need it.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Decent enough knives, but the black inserts are paper-thin blow-mold stuff that falls out. I threw away the top piece since the mag strip wouldn't stick to it, and I glued the mag strip directly to the wooden box lid. The box itself is oddly very nice, but I'd have been happier with a slightly cheaper box for overall higher quality packaging.
