Easy Peezy - PowerBlock rocks April 26, 2018
By: Michael Mathews from Reno, NV United States  
Ordered the PowerBlock. Super easy checkout experience, got it pretty quickly and wired that thing up almost immediately.    Great documentation, lots of examples and worked right out of the box.

This was the perfect accessory to finish off my Retropie cabinet. Toggle switch makes it idiot proof to shut down correctly.
