3 out of 5 eggsok, wouldn't buy again

Pros: Works to some degree. It will use your tv with RCA or S-video as a monitor.
Cheap.

Cons: The resolution isn't very good. I'm running Linux and I could not get it to change to a higher resolution.
Hardly worth the money, but it works.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for older TV's

Pros: Many old school options:
composite input
S-video input
Ideal at 640x480 for televisions.

Cons: Lots of screen refreshes at 1028x768, and some at 800x600
No progress bar when adjusting settings. The quality represents composite quality, even through S-video. If you are using it for a SVGA extension you limit it.. A cheap extension cord would work better.

Other Thoughts: This unit I believe is mainly used for older TV's since nearly all of the new video cards do not have a S-video/composite output, nor do they have an adapter for it. This makes that possible through a DVI to SVGA. Since old televisions are 480i, it is best to set your settings at 640x480. It is very acceptable for your needs if you wish to continue to use an old tv.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works. Reasonable price. Has some adjustable settings on side of unit which is helpful.

Cons: There seems to be a trade off between flicker and fuzzyness. We found a happy medium with the controls. We are using it on a old front projection TV and the TV quality isnt amazing to begin with

Other Thoughts: Using this in college dorm with an old front projection TV. Bought an adapter for a roommates Mac and that works too.

5 out of 5 eggsLord Stz

Pros: Small Size, works exactly as advertised. It was extremely easy to setup and use. Truly plug and play. I use Ubuntu Netbook Edition and it was no problem what so ever. The picture is very good; especially considering what composite video is capable of to begin with.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I like the fact that it is powered by USB. I am using my Netbook in my car with some displays I have and it is perfect for this purpose. It will work great for any PC to tv. conversion.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

Pros: allows a VGA to display to devices composite/svideo.

Resolution is good for this sort of connection, resolution on the VGA monitor and on the composite connection appears to be as good as other direct composite connections I have used.

Cons: Manual is non-existant.

Originally missed the PAL->NTSC switch if this is not set the screeen will roll and/or be black and white only, what manual there was did not mention.

Other Thoughts: I would buy again to use for this use.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Works great, good picture quality.

Cons: Does not have an adapter to plug it into the wall for power instead of USB power.

Other Thoughts: I am using this in a church environment for our projector which we for some reason only have svideo going to it.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, small, portable. Quality is fine for watching videos.

Cons: Both of my tv's have PCs connected to them and I can read the text just fine when I use the tv out on their graphics card. When I used this converter I never found a setting where I could read text. The converter output was fine when the source was set to standard aspect ratio. When the source was widescreen the output was sqished regardless of the aspect ratio of the TV.

Other Thoughts: When I was using my laptop (not using the VGA out on the converter) it made the internal display look worse. I had to reset my resolution and refresh rate settings every time I plugged in the converter. But at least I could read the test on the internal display.
