Good Product  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Item works as advertised. My nits with it:
1. Mounted in a plastic/bakelite material case, you drop it, it shatters.
2. All the Coax Hook ups and control line (if used), power, are all on the same face. Would be preferred to have your input power and control on another surface.
3. Easy to scoot around (like a wattmeter) if you aren't careful with mounting your coax. No mounting or securing provisions.
4. Wish it had an off/on switch (although you could put one in the input power line). I run this off the same power supply as other items and can't "turn off the power" without affecting other items.

All in all, not bad. Could use a bit of refinement, else I would give it a 5.
