    "I was worried that I might not have the technical know-how to figure out how to make this work for me. I was right on, but the helpful technical support people assisted me a great deal and now I'm streaming along just fine. I'm finding it very easy to use now that I've actually done it successfully. Highly recommended."

    "This page did not list a particular device. Flash as a medium or application is rather antiquated. It is not patched as much as need be and there exists exploits."

    "If you have a composite, or non-HDMI television, and need an inexpensive solution, this does work. It doesn't come with any good instructions, so you're on your own to figure out how to best connect things, but once you get it set up, it works."

    "This is a decent result for me. It isn't a ton of variety, but there are definitely a few to choose from. The reviews are okay too, and I haven't had too much of a problem. I'd call this a decent response."

    "This is a very helpful accessory for those people who are still interested in playing old games in old Sony Playstations devices or watch their old video cassettes. My mom still keeps video cassette recorder as a an antique and memory. She has old cassettes of her wedding and occasionally she watches them. And this tool is an extremely convenient tool produced for those who want to watch these old video cassette on LED television which only support HDMI port. I sometimes find myself playing old Tekken game on old Sony Playstation device and I use RCA Composite to HDMI to play the game on LED TV. Truly appreciate these tool who brings nostalgia and memories"

    "Rather liked this, to be honest. It's just genuinely cool to be able to drop something on your laptop and zip it up to the television. Want to show your friends the gay pokemon fan video with Yuri Lowenthal? Just beam up it and have a good time. It's real great. The video broadcasting is fairly fine and the actual dongle seems to be both well made and fairly stable."
