My Decimator has been solid with everything I've sent it - from EX1s to REDs. The HDMI out is really a nice touch, and it's quite cheap for what it does.

I have both, and definitely prefer the decimator. The Aja is a piece of kit built to live somewhere in a studio environment, and while the signal you
get from it is really precise it it really sensitive regarding voltage requirements. The decimator on the other hand has never failed me once - just make certain
to order a couple of the power connectors they use as they are non-standard (at least around here)

For me some things are just made right from the start .It's one bit of kit that saves me time and works every time .For me it's the Decimator.
