      Comments about Denecke TS-3 Time Code Slate - Color Clapper:

      This is my first time code slate that I've purchased and it has done the job exactly as I expected it to. Very easy to use and battery life is longer than I expected. It also seems very well built. Product support has also been very good. Anyone who wants a professional device to sync audio to video will love this slate. I only wish I had purchased the backlit version, but I am overall completely satisfied.
