The Hi-Wire offers the truest conversion available between a PC and an HDTV. The clarity of the HDTV display is directly related to how close the VGA out is in dimensions and pixels to the HDTV format. The Hi-Wire makes the process intuitive and simple.
happy with it
This review is from: Grandtec USA Hi-Wire Multi-Format VGA to HD Converter GHV-2000 VGA Interface
Pros: setup doesn't require use of manual, just plug in vga to vga with supplied cable, plug in included component out input cable, connect component cable (not included), plug in power and turn on. choose a resolution your tv supports by pushing a button and you're good to go.
Cons: biggest issue:OVERSCAN! granted all tvs will have overscan, and its just the percentage of overscan varies from tv to tv. no matter how much i adjusted, there was noticeable overscan. however i was able to watch a movie without it being too distracting.
Other Thoughts: does not come with component cables, the box uses a specialized cable to give you inputs. this is nice but they could have used a less flimsy feeling breakout cable or simply have built-in inputs. however with this way the heavy component cables do not weigh down/tilt the box.
