Nice little box
Pros: Bought this box to plug into the vga port on my netbook to watch videos on a CRT TV. Works like a charm using s-video out. Would recommend for this kind of setup.
Cons: You need a few seconds the first time through to push the front buttons into the correct confirguration. Need to resize the video signal from the box every once and a while after powering on to fit right to the screen - only a minor inconvenience that comes up from time to time.
Other Thoughts: Not sure how the video would turn out over a HDTV... Don't lose the remote - necessary for tweaking the output signal...

Works Great - Sorta
Pros: Once you get around the Cons I mentioned below - issues that probably won't affect many people - this is a FIVE star device.
Cons: Intended to use device with my Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Laptop.
Other Thoughts: VGA Extension cables are pretty common. The I.T. guy at your place of work probably has a ton of them laying around (since everything is DPMI, now). They're not too expensive. So, if you run into this problem that I had (manufacturer said it was some Lenovo and some Dell laptops) and have reasonable access to a replacement cable, go for it. This is a great device.
