          Comments about American Recorder Recording Sign:

          I was disappointed with the brightness of the "Recording" letters. In fact, you really have to set it to flashing to notice that it lights up. I was also disappointed with the sound that emanates from the control box. The manual says it emits a sound and that the control box should be located in an equipment room. That is silly though, as the on/off switch is located directly on the noisy box. So doing so, you would not have easy access to the on/off switch which defeats its purpose.

          Overall I am disappointed in this recording sign.

            Listen to the other reviews. This is very cheapley made, and makes a terrible noise. This should be $25 at most. The price tag is absurd for this POC!

            Comments about American Recorder Recording 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 sign to 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. (stating the obvious here) With a lot of amateurs in our facility people do not always know when it is ok to come into the studio area.

                  Purchased for use in video studio. Opened box and was immediately not impressed by the quality of workmanship. It's flimsy and cheaply made. I also agree with other reviewers that the tones generated by the power supply/controller are unacceptable. The instructions advise to locate that part of the unit in an isolated area. More easily said than done when the cables are too short to allow for that. Plus, it puts the controller in an out of the way location for something you would want to access often while recording. Don't buy.

                  Switch makes high pitched noise

                  The sign works/looks great and you can set it to be on when you turn it on or blink. However, the switch makes an audible high pitched tone that will be picked up by recording instruments in a studio. This is unacceptable in my mind. However, the manufacturer said this is "normal" behavior based on the electrical circuits and it's listed in the instructions. This is unacceptable and I do not recommend this project if you plan on having the switch in your studio near recording instruments.

                      We purchased two of these for a recording studio we have at our office, put them up on the wall, and one of them started smoking, sparking, and burnt a hole in itself. Talk about a fire hazard. I do not recommend this for anyone, we returned both of them. I also called the company to let them know that this happened, I didn't get an apology just some guy who's brother owns that company that said "ya that happens sometimes" - there was no warning on the manual or anything. They're just lucky that it didn't actually start a fire in our office because we were watching it. I will never buy a product from them again.
