This is a review of the Decent Gadget 12V Digital Message Scrolling Sign Display
The Decent Gadget 12V Digital Message Scrolling Sign Display is made from hard ABS thermo plastic measuring 42 cm wide and 10 cm tall.It is quite cylindrical in its shape and has feet either side to help the display swing it 360 degrees.
The message itself fills about 2/3rds of the viewing banner in red dotted writing. It is designed to be sat on the top of the rear seats in your car, however the sticky tabs to attach are not particularly strong, you may want to add further adhesive using velcro. There is a 4m long cable long enough to be able to plug the cable into the cigarette lighter at the front of a 7 seater vehicle and have the display fixed at the back, there is ample length to have the display wherever you like in the car, I would suggest working out where you permanently want it and then tidy the wire between or around the seat in a way that will not intrude on your passengers.
The display comes with a remote control, that looks similar to a small TV remote. It isn’t the easiest to use and is like writing a text with an old basic phone but you get used to it. It will fit up to 10 letters on the display in one go, the letter W is also quite wide so you might be looking at more like 7-8 letters. I say letters but actually you can use numbers and symbols too.
It will work both stationary and rotate the message round, for a message that is moving you can use more than 10 letters and you have the option for it to be a slow or fast speed message. The message is vibrant in red and easy to read and there is even an option to store messages to present a message at the click of a button which is great.

Conclusion & where to buy
This is an easy to install digital message display screen, providing a clear message either stationary or moving. Overall the display itself is is a decent quality. However, the extra parts such as the long cable will required thoughtful car placement and the sticky pads will require extra sticky pads to secure it.
