Very frustrated that the item we received was very beat up and that I will need to go through the headache of returning it since it is a large item.

The inventor of this device never knew what he or she has done for the profession, if you want it cleaner, better and professional looking...think teleprompter!!!

. Poor software.

I have been in the business 25 years and have always hired prompter companies to show up with the gear. So I haven't thought much about what goes into it. Until now. I retuned this prompter and exchanged it for the PeoplePrompter 15. We all agreed the Autocue was a not working for us. It came with no assembly information and tech support told me to watch a video for instructions. The video was more like a promotional vide. If you order a cabinet from IKEA would you be asked to watch a video? They should add a pamphlet with a diagram on how to assemble the thing. It takes a lot to set it up. The People Prompter we bought opens like a clam shell. Perfect! Another significant problem is that the talent had problem getting a straight shot to the prompter and we wound up having to put a wedge under the cstand to tilt the whole unit up right. Lastly, the People Prompter FlipQ software works leagues better than autocue and accepts word docs although txt is the best.

Product Works Well Despite LCD Reverse

If you plan on using this a while plan on paying for software updates. I purchased this when Windows 7 was out but to use Windows 8 you have to purchase new software updates. They are not free. If your system is not powerful enough to run dual desktops, the mirror desktop works, but the output is not reversed, so you cannot use that. (text is backwards with no way to reverse). The extended desktop mode works on fast PC's with good graphics cards. This mode allows reversed text. A small operator window appears on laptop. I hate the experience of updateing my PC's OS and only find out now I have to pay again to make the product work. Charge a little more for the product and give us free updates. That is my observation.

I usually do quite a bit of research before I buy a product. In this case, I did the same. Once I was ready to purchase, I determined that the Autocue SSP10 lite would fit my needs, based on build quality and features/price. Autocue looked like a reputable company and I was additionally sold by their videos and a rep. that I spoke to, by phone. In todays competetive business environment, you can usually correlate the value of cost to product. In this case, it was definitely not evident. The product I recieved was flimsy and sparse, from a quality and feature standpoint. You could tell that the manufacturer really trimmed back, in order to meet a price point. After attempting to put the thing together for an hour, I noticed that the hood support was bent. So, I called support. Got some help, but after some lengthy discussion I was told the they would have to get back with me with a resolution. I suggested an upgrade (at a cost) or at worst a replacement component. The next morning I recieved an e-mail suggesting that I bend the defective part into place or return the product to B&H. I was flabbergasted. So, I responded with a couteous e-mail stating how ridiculous the suggestion was and that it was a great example of poor support. Within an hour, I got a callback from the manager that suggested the bend it fix. What did he offer....still basically nothing. No upgrade, no replacement part...only some defensive conversation over the quality of their products and an explanation as to why the buid quality was cheap for the price. I don't always write reviews, but I do when the product/service is great or when it's poor. I called B&H and they had no problem sending me a shipping ticket to return the product. .....but its about the hassle...every manufacturer of a product should go overboard, especially in the case of defective product, to solve a situation. Thats just smart business. Now they lose a sale of their product, in the form of an upgrade and they get a poor review. I'm a very fair guy and I gave them a chance...a poor resolution policy gave them this result. Went back and did some more extensive research. Looks to me like Prompter People, Mirror Image and maybe even Telmax are the way to go....for build quality/value/price.

The Teleprompter...

THe teleprompter is an outstanding device for as professional as possible. I used it many times for TV host and for myself. However, there is one thing I must point out, CARE. You must take care of it and you must be careful when moving it should it not be on a stand of its own. It is awkward and sometimes very heavy. Sometimes there are wires that we forget to tie up, such as myself, and yes it went over to break the reflective glass, I was very lucky, $ replaced the glass. So, have fun use it well and yes, there is a lot of work out there for the teleprompter...
