          Comments about American Recorder On Air Sign:

          I was a bit surprise and disappointed by the On Air sign when I opened it up. The difference between ON and OFF is just a small difference in the amount of glowing. Unlike some signs, when it's OFF, the words ON-AIR are still perfectly visible and some may mistake it for being on. When it's ON the ON-AIR text glows reasonably brightly.

          When plugged in and turned on, the transformer box emits this very high pitch whine noise. I've hidden the boxes away in a closet so you can't hear them, but be careful where you place them.

          It does work, and it's the cheapest ON-AIR light I could find, so I have it three stars.

            Comments about American Recorder On Air Sign:

            This sign is just what we wanted. Low profile sign that did not need a construction crew to install. Looks great and the technology behind it has us scratching our heads. We wish there was a way to actually customize the order for our own wording. We ordered all three current designs but would have liked to adapt each design just a little. We are using at several doors to our production areas to keep people from just walking in when a production is in progress.

              Comments about American Recorder On Air Sign:

              We purchased this sign to alert people in the hallway that a training or recording session was in progress.
              The sign is slick,made of electroluminescent material (no bulbs) and is bright an easy to read. It even blinks (if desired) and the rate is adjustable.
              It's flexible, and designed to velcro mount to a wal or door, but we purchased an aluminum frame to dress it up a bit more.
              Only bad news, the power adapter arrived broken (one of the blades that plugs into the wall was hanging freely). We called the manufacturer, and they sent replacement right away at no charge. Excellent service.
              Yes I would buy again (and may, we might need a second one to mount backto back and hang in the hallway to enure easy visibility from both directions).
