Deviser S20 Satellite Meter
Ideally suited to fastly install dishes
A Well Performing Meter
Which Even Looks Great
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-
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. Satellite name,
