        There are two of the PB-15s being used in a high school video production lab. The construction is a solid metal, all the components are of good quality and set up was was. The one negative thing is that when the mirror slides into the grooves that support it there is not a way to secure it in its factory form, but this is easily fixed by adding a small c-clamp. I plan on drilling holes through the groove slides and the support then put in a quick disconnect bolt. Other than that A+ Mirror Image.

          Very comparable to higher-priced prompter units. We've used it on a crane, on a dolly and a standard tripod and have no complaints. It's easy to set up and we travel with it in a padded 28"x16"x16" rolling case (it only comes apart in two parts, which has never been an issue for us).......

            Purchased three of these for our high school TV studio. While a wider screen is usually better (and more expensive), the 15" screen on this model works fine for the short distances we normally work from in a small studio. I initially thought I could only afford two decent prompters with my budget, but the PB-15 price allowed me to purchase one for all three of our studio cameras. Very please about that!

            One caution: these monitors only work with a VGA feed, so figure on the expense of VGA extension cables. They come with a 25' cable, but we needed 50' to get to our control room's teleprompter computer. Video coax cable to a composite input would have been less expensive and less bulky to run, but the direct VGA feed is cleaner that video from a scan converter.

            Not that impressed with the prompter software provided--we prefer to use a rundown/prompter program for our regular newscasts.

              This is an excelent value for the price, probably the least expensive teleprompter with a built-in display. It can be quickly disassembled for location work. You will need to get a bag to carry it around, though, as it is NOT included in the box.The device comes with Script-Q Advanced software (branded version of ProPrompter, which works as expected. The license is valid for both Windows and Mac. I tested both and the Mac version performed much smoother, even though my Windows laptop had higher specs.The display on the device is a stock 15-inch Planar monitor, with only VGA input (no DVI). Curiously, the monitor has built-in stereo speakers, an audio input and headphones output, for which I can't come up with any use. I couldn't help but think that it might have been less expensive to use a monitor without the audio; I feel like I'm paying for something I will never need. Nonetheless, the device works flawlessly, looks professional enough and is rather inexpensive (with the quarter of the price being just the software itself).

                Two of these were purchased for our high school television studio as an improvement over students reading off paper for the morning announcements. They were easy to set up and we have had no problems with them after using them daily for several months. Once students learn how to control the speed, they have no problem using the teleprompters.
                The included software is very basic, but I believe it's free with the teleprompters. I've considered upgrading to the pro version of the software just for the spell check feature.
                Since we use one laptop to run both teleprompters, I have a wireless VGA adapter to avoid wires on the floor and a splitter to send the signal to both displays.
                They are heavy, so make sure to have a solid, professional tripod.
                The only drawback I have found is the hood covers the zoom controls for my cameras. To solve that problem, I cut a window and used gaffers tape to seal around the rocker switch.

                It was very easy to install and operate. We are currently using this telepromtper on a college campus for faculty to make instructional videos. It was worth the money and I would definitely buy this teleprompter again.
