Trouble with setting converter up

 

I had trouble getting a picture on my HD TV. I was going to return it but phoned Allona to see if they could help. I did get a picture on the TV momentarily. I tried to use the menu feature on the converter but failed. Altona told me how to reset the...

Short some features

 

Converts vga to 1080p as advertised, BUT:o-Some features shown in manual not actually there,o-No control of saturation, etc.o-Tech support very poor.If you buy it, you're essentially on your own!

Excellent product little bit over priced but worth it for the quality. Works perfectly all the time with constant changing of inputs.

Good Scaler for the money

SENNHEISER HD 500 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headphone

 

killer phones. I agree with guy below i probably wouldn't have bought at the current price despite how great they are. I would have gone with 497s or gone up to the 580s which also were alot cheaper a while back.

very pretty

 

I was one of the lucky few to get these at $50, although i must say that i probably wouldn't buy them at $90... not because they aren't worth it, cause they definitely are, just cause i'm stingy :/ but yeah, these are great headphones. The sound is...
