5 out of 5 eggsdisappointed no more

Pros: Works as advertised. Great looking HD monitoring of the timeline.

Cons: It hijacks your audio. So you may need a nice sound system hooked to the HDTV or separate speakers can be hooked up to the red & white RCA outputs of the Mini. But you will not get sound out of the normal outputs from your computer when this is activated in your NLE.

Other Thoughts: The one mentioned in my first review failed in less than a day. The second one was DOA. But the third one has been working great with no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsLasted less than a day

Pros: Fast shipping by Newegg

Cons: This thing didn't even work for a full 24 hrs. I got to try it out for one evening (yesterday) during which it did display the Media Composer timeline on my HDTV, but it also displayed static and at times the picture would jump. So today I was going to try it with a different HDTV but the Mini wouldn't even power up! Are you kidding me?? How much did this thing cost again??? I bought a used Quadro FX1800 a year ago via online bidding and have not had one second of trouble with it. Maybe I should shop for a used MX02Mini so I know it has a history of being able to function. RMAing this one, hoping the replacement will work.

Other Thoughts: I was hoping to now be able to get some serious work done with this unit and I would tell you exactly how I feel about this $449 experience but then the good people at Newegg wouldn't print my review.
