    Aputure VS-5 reviews

    VS-5 V-Screen 7" PRO Multifunctional Monitor is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment!! So it was between this or the Ikan DH7 and I went with the Aputure VS-5 because of the extra features. I hooked it up to my Panasonic GH4, and immediately it was apparent that there is a huge video lag in live viewing. Tried multiple different HDMI cables, and still the issue persist. I tried contacting Aputure via their website, and Facebook page with no response. The quality of the image is great on this monitor, and the multiple features alone are worth the price for this monitor, but the video lag is so horrible that its just not practical. Will be sending it back for a full refund, and trying out the Ikan DH7.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor for the price I got mine and updated the firmware and that addressed the lag issue. The responsiveness of the monitor is completely usable now. I had an issue with upgrading the firmware and reached out to their Tech Support through their Facebook page and found them very helpful. I'm on a Mac and needed to download a specific archive expander to open up the firmware archive after downloading it. Once I got that, the update worked perfectly. The monitor is bright and the sunshade works perfectly. Some people complain that it pops off easily. These people aren't making the sure the side clasps are seated completely. I can shake it around and hit it and it won't come off when attached correctly. The zoom, false color, vector scopes and wave forms are the main reason I got this monitor and these are incredibly valuable tools that I use during all my shoots. I highly recommend this monitor for the price. It's an incredible deal to get those tools in a 7 HD monitor for this price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from SDI LAG! Hi, image quality is great, but there is LAG, even after FW upgrade which makes this monitor unusable for critical functions like FOCUS pulling! I hope they will be able to fix it with another FW!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HUGE video lag in live viewing Connected it via SDI to my FS5 and the video lag is HORRIBLE. COMPLETELY UNUSABLE. If this gets fixed by an update, would make it a really great monitor for its price. If not then STAY AWAY. I'll update this review if they do fix it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overheating My first one stopped receiving an hdmi signal after a few weeks. I returned it to the manufacturer and they replaced it straight away. Now the second one is freezing and blacking out. It could be a power issue as I'm using a vlock battery pack, but it seems unreliable. I'm switching to smallhd focus.
