Seemed to be working fine at first. The DC power line to the laptop is about 18"-24" shorter than the original. Besides that issue, the caution on the transformer says it all, "(1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation." Do not use near a widescreen. The RF (electromagnetic radiation) also disrupts reception of radio. One very important thing I should have looked for at the start was the UL seal of approval; there is none which means this item was never tested or presents a hazard to health or home. Spend the extra money and by an approved unit. What a cleverly hidden lemon. Caveat Emptor.
My charger was still working, but had gotten caught in the zipper of my laptop carrying bag and wires were visible. I replaced my old charger with this one and it worked for maybe three weeks. My computer was slower, indicating that the battery probably never worked correctly. Basically this cheap piece of crap worked long enough so that the return by window passed. Now, even when I tried to switch parts of the cords out with working parts, I still couldn't get the computer to charge. Bypass this product and this company--what they make is clearly inferior.
I was ready to dump my HP G72 in the trash or recycle center because it would not charge up. I took a chance and ordered this item and now my old laptop has come back to life. I still have a few problems on this computer but it might be software related.
