    Blackmagic Design Mini Converter reviews

    Mini Converter Optical Fiber 12G-SDI is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Additional Parts needed/ No locking power supply I was excited for this product when i saw it was coming out cuz its super cheap compared to other fiber converters and it had a locking power supply (win win right?). However, when I opened the box I realized that there is no supplied locking power supply, you'll have to purchase that yourself! Additionally and even more frustrating is that it doesn't work right out of the box because it doesn't come with the fiber modules to connect your fiber cables. So now I have to go and purchase those as well. Blackmagic has come a long way in the past few years but they frustrate me so many times because of the lack of basic common sense. I understand wanting to make things affordable but don't cut things out that are just going to frustrate people. If you say you have a locking power supply, provide a locking power supply. If you're selling a product make sure it can work right out of the box! Or at the very least let your customer know, before they purchase something, that you're going to need additional equipment to make it work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works. NO SFP included, ignore description that states LC It works and the price is great. You will also need to purchase SFP modules since none are included.
