  22. 22. TEST REPORT Satellite Meter A Well Performing Meter Which Even Looks Great 12-01/2012 Deviser S20 Satellite Meter Ideally suited to fastly install dishes Someone once said: “We buy with our eyes” and that’s true. The designers of Devis- er’s new satellite meter took this advice to their heart and managed to fit their new product into a really great housing. The light blue and gray combination of colors is definitely an eyecatcher. The plastic case of the me- ter is gray but it is wrapped around with a light blue rub- ber envelope. Quite an inter- esting design, but let’s have a look now into its perfor- mance. The meter sits nicely in your hand. Its backlit LCD is quite large and readable even outside. Seven but- tons are clearly labeled and you can operate them with your thumb without touching neighbouring buttons. Signal input connector is located at the bottom of the case while the 12 V DC power socket and mini USB port are lo- cated on the right side of the S20 case. Deviser included two F barrel connectors, so if the first one is torn off, you sim- ply replace it with the sec- ond one. The power supply unit and car charger unit are also in the package. But that is not yet all: you get a detailed hard copy user manual as well as a small CD ROM containing PC software for managing satellites and transponders stored in the S20’s memory. And there’s even more: the S20 comes with a vanity case that you can attach to your belt and a light blue strap if you pre- fer to hang the S20 on your neck or shoulder. Right after power on, S20 enters the signal search mode. There are two bar graph indicators on the screen for signal strength and signal quality, with per- centage values showed next to them.
