    Bridge X_TS Trouble Shooter Expanded Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for SDI, trouble with analog cam and power input Three and half star. I've had this for a 8 months and it has been indispensable for testing SDI camera systems. However, it doesn't detect the analog cameras that I bought this unit for (other analog cameras were detected, I just didn't need this unit for those cameras). I managed to get in touch with the manufacturer, and they wanted me to send them the problem cameras, but for a variety of reasons, that wasn't something we wanted to do. Also, the connector on the power transformer broke within 6 months (its a bit flimsy). If I were to buy again, I would buy the DIGITAL FORECAST Bridge X_NEO I as the analog input is worthless to me and that product seems to have all the features I want at half the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I've had this unit for a few months now. It delivers on all the features listed. Physically it is built well and feels solid. I wouldn't want to drop it though. I wish there was a silicon case or something for it to help absorb bumps. The software is functional. Screen response is a little hit or miss but once you know how to tap - it's fine, and there is a dial on the back which also steps through all on screen selections. I haven't needed support yet - but do wish they had a better presence and support type page for inquiries etc. This unit isn't cheap - so if I ever needed support, I want somewhere to turn to. And maybe look forward to software updates? Right now, it's just the Korean manufacturer site. But as someone out in the field who needs to troubleshoot signal flow - it's a great help and time saver (just being able to identify bad coax out in the field is a huge timesaver (crc error/jitter/eye...)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The Trouble Shooter is a great asset. It is hard to find another unit that offers the same functionality and such a cool design. I debated purchasing the Neo instead but as I was researching portable monitors while on the job site, the client requested an analogue feed to be added to the press box. That’s what sold me on the Trouble Shooter vs the Neo, plus the built-in embedded. The jitter scope is my new favorite instrument and I have yet to find another portable monitor that offers the same, other than the Neo. However, I wish there was a case or silicone bumpers that could be added to the unit. I love it so much, I want it to last! And, potentially, a wrist strap. As a technician sending signals to various destinations, there is a lot of walking and lift operation involved with the job and any sort of development in portability would make a great difference. Either way, A+ awesome device.
