  • Noisy fan replacement

    I have found a quieter replacement for the fan.
    It is a Fastrax FAST36-5.
    This unit has no ventilation. You can not extract air from a sealed box.
    What comes out must also go in.
    I am going to drill some ventilation holes in the box to aid the air flow.
    This is a rubbish design.

  • Noisy fan

    I returned my unit to Maplins for a replacement because of the fan noise which appeared after 2 days.
    Otherwise the unit worked well.
    The replacement was exactly the same, unbearable fan noise after 2 hours use.
    The problem is in the fan bearings.
    If you oil the bearings, it stays quiet for about a week. I've been trying to find a replacement fan 30mm 5 volt fan but no luck so far.

  • for use on old game consoles

    RETRO GAMERS: i purchased this in the hope i could connect my old Snes and megadrive upto my current digital HD tv. sadly this does not work and it will only produce sound with a frozen flickering picture. have shopped at maplin since i was 15 and as usual they were fine to deal with for returning product. catherine at the portsmouth store was more than helpful as usual. a shame this time maplin could not solve this problem i had with connections but as of yet it seems not many companies can. 3 stars for size, firm connections. i didnt find it loud at all and my hearing is fine for a 30 yr old.

  • Fan is noisy

    I'd reiterate the other negative comments on this. The fan is noisy, the video was an unnatural colour, the audio and video were not synced and because of the way the unit has to be set up I can imagine lots of problems with buttons being accidentally pressed at the front which change the settings. There have to be good products which solve this problem. Unfortunately this is not one of them.

  • I echo all the negative reviews by others. Not only does the integral fan (that isn't mentioned in the blurb) sound like a hair dryer on the blink, but the picture was rubbish; colour was off, it flickered a lot and all in all actually made things worse. I wasn't expecting blu-ray standard but for the price I expected something half decent. I cannot mince my words, avoid this like the plague.

  • I had an international sky box and needed to connect to my new Samsung TV., At the same time, I needed to connect my sky box, my DVD player and other gizmo's. I bought this with the 3 in 1 scart plug system and so far it has been perfect, albeit a noisy fan. However, dont seem to notice it when totally engrossed on my programs! Would definitely recommend this to those who have old TV accessories running on SCART, so they have an option of keeping these things when upgrading to a new TV!

  • The converter is well engineered and does work although in my case intermittently. It also has a fan which is not mentioned and this is quite noisy. Overall I've been disappointed with its performance and the need to power off and on several times before it works.

  • Yes, it does upscale but darkened picture considerably. Also, for its small size it has a very intrusive noisy fan. I cannot recommend this product.

  • Neat package and not too big but noisy cooling fan and picture quality can be a bit sketchy at best although when you see a still image it is sharp and clear. Shame that as soon as you get a bit of movement it goes to pot. Images across the screen tend to ghost and strobe, definitely not smooth. Colours are good though and if you don't sit too close to the screen it's not so bad. Mixed feelings about this and whether to take it back or not.

    Will this connect a Now box to a TV with scart connector only.

    No it’s the wrong way round. We don’t stock anything suitable I'm afraid.
