Snap-It Accessory/Stationary DCC Decoder April 21, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
This works exactly as I hoped it would. Just  be sure to follow the directions carefully.  Specifically, the decoder arrives with the programming plug already installed.  Connect it, program it, remove the plug, and use it.  I've bought and installed three so far including two on two Atlas Snap Relays and one on an Atlas N scale track turnout and they all work flawlessly.  I plan to buy more of them to control more of the most difficult to reach turnouts on my layout.

Rock Solid at a Great Price January 6, 2014
Reviewer: Scott Wendt from Minong, WI United States  
Just ordered more. I have had 8 of these in operation for over 2 years and never once had to reset or reprogram any of them unlike from a competitor.  Programming with NCE is literally "Set it and forget it!" because in the 6 years I have used their various accessory decoders, I have never had even one forget its adress or position. I have been driving all four switches (using Kato and Peco machines) in double crossovers using one Snap-It or Switch-Kat and never had a switching failure. Now you can see they have two capacitors to double the power over the competition, they should handle firing 2 or more of even the poorest quality switch machines at the same time.

The only complaint is MTS allows almost all NCE products to run out completely before restocking, yet over $40,000 of Digitrax decoders are sitting in inventory! By my accounting, that's a lot of inventory dollars wasted on Digitrax and who knows how much lost NCE sales.
