Pros: Easy to use, great picture quality. Can get resolution of 1080i, 720p, 480i, 480p, and more for widescreen displays by downloading current ATI RADEON software
Cons: No instructions included, only works with ATI RADEON video cards, dvd support is not very good because you are forced to use ATI DVD player in order to display dvd on your HDTV, dvd quality is merely average
Overall Review: You must have an ATI radeon video card, i have the 9600 series and connected to a 42" Panasonic 42px50u plasma through the available component input, all you have to do is download the latest drivers. You can adjust the resolution within the ATI control panel. You should be able to get up to 1920x1280. Also, there is more resolutions available than the 1080i,720p etc..it will display them if your display is capable of it, otherwise it will not display correctly. My 1080i setting made my desktop off the screen slightly but there is an option to size down the viewable area, so i was able to get a PERFECT display of my desktop on a 16x9 plasma with true aspect ratio. The ATI DVD player program is required to play a dvd from your computer onto your HDTV though, no other software dvd player will work. it is not the best quality, i recommend using a set top dvd player instead, all else has PERFECT picture, sharp with true colors.
Pros: Works great. Hooked up HD cables, plugged it into my monitor, no problems.
Cons: no instructions, but you really don't need them.
Overall Review: I used this to hook my Xbox360 to the DVI input on my 42" Plasma PC monitor.
The switches on the side set the aspect ratio and screen resoluion. Simply on/off for each. If you look closely you can see beside each switch it says 480/720/1080 etc... just set it to what you need. Last switch changes input to 16:9 if turned on.
Pros: It was very specific with its onboard settings. You have to know the refresh rate of your TV too. CHEAP!
Cons: It didn't specify what cards it works with, and i had an Nvidia card, and it only works with ATI. I wished I had known.
Pros: Very nice, love the fact that its an adapter and not some 6 foot cable. Have tested it, does do it exactly what it says its supose to do, and in due time will test the real reason I bought it.
Cons: I saw it labeled as regular DVI.... its DVI-I (I think its called)... the difference is the 2 pins above and below the -- on the DVI sub. Therefor the DVI side can not be plugged into a regular DVI, so I must find a 28 female DVI-i to 24 pin Male DVI adapter for this to work... and cant.
Overall Review: Bought to play my xbox 360 on my LCD monitor. So my intension was actually to go Component to DVI but can't. Will update my post once I get it to work, if it works.
Pros: Works fine, if you check its compatibility with your graphics card. I knew, ahead of time, that it would work with my ATI Radeon 9700 Pro and bought it. I don't own a Sapphire 9700 Pro, but it still works as advertised.
Cons: I can't use it with any standard DVI on a given graphics card, but I knew that when I bought this. Due to the product's very strict hardware compatibility requirements (only supports a few graphics cards), I gave it a 4/5.
Cons: but only with a good video card
Overall Review: I can use my plasma TV as a computer monitor
Pros: Works perfectly.
Cons: I had to adjust for overscan with my ATI software. No biggie.
Overall Review: I had problems with VGA and DVI inputs on my 32" West-house TV. Set the input to 1280 X 720 and everything works perfectly.
Pros: This was easy to setup. Just set the dips to 480i, 480p, 720i, 720p, or 1080i, and whether your screen is 16:9 or not.
It worked the first time I plugged it in.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: This is being used on a Sapphire 9600 with the latest Catalyst drivers.
