      Comments about AJA HD/SD-SDI to HDMI Video and Audio Converter with DWP:

      Light, sturdy, and reliable. I use this to convert a 2k signal from the SDI out on my Odyssey 7Q to an HDMI input on a flat screen tv for monitoring. Doesn't get hot like the Blackmagic models. My only complaint is the weird A/C jack. On the plus side, it locks in so it won't come out, but it feels a little flimsy. Otherwise, no complaints. Great product.

        I've haven't been using this long, but so far it's performing as it said it would.
        Set up was pretty easy. Just plug it in and make the connections. The unit will not do PSF as far a I understand, so that can through people off, but 24p works just fine, as does 59i.

                This converter is s MUST HAVE, if you have an HD-SDI camera. It's small and light weight and plug and play. It comes with everything you need to hook up to an HDMI monitor.
                My only negative comments are that it must be connected to AC and I wish it had an in-body threaded mount to attache it to a monitor. I did buy the AJA RMB-RO Rackmount Bracket which works fine.
