Pros: Technically works, in that it powers up the Wii. Inexpensive. Looks just like the OEM brick.
Cons: In my setup, causes a horizontal band of noticeable distortion that slowly rises up the TV screen and repeats.
First try caused a visual distortion. Submitted an RMA for a replacement, and the second one did the same thing. OEM brick from another Wii works just fine. Refunded without issue.

If you are like me, you don't want to spend a ton to get an aging gaming system operational again. This is a good inexpensive way to fix your Wii. Only reason this did not get 10 of 10 is due to slight distortion in the picture. You really only notice it when the game is loading information from the DVD or when on the home screen. Game play does not seem to be affected.
