    Best Uses

      Comments about Allen Avionics DLS-5117 Video Delay System:

      Works great, 2 small gripes
      1) the power supply does not feel that is it is firmly held in place, could be a sturdier connection
      2) the rotary dial indentation to adjust the delay is fairly soft plastic, make sure you have a screwdriver that completly fills the void or else you will quickly damage the adustment dial
