Disclosure: Because the way video signal is generated the image could present light vertical bars across the screen, depending on the monitor and selected video output. This behaviour is most noticeable on flat panel monitors.
Power supply and power cable are not included. Unit requires at least 1.5 Amps output, high quality power supply and shielded USB power cable. 3D printed cases might show imperfections
