Good ol' Buy.com came through again! I don't know how they do it, but they had the lowest price on this that I could find. I bought this so my girlfriend's mom could watch some Real videos on the TV. I'm not sure why it didn't work when we hooked the laptop to it, but it works fine with the desktop. Both PCs were set with the required resolution, color, and scanning frequency. On the laptop, you could see the logon screen and everything else in Windows. When you started up a video in RealPlayer, the player would open fine but the area where the video should be was just black. I tried the adjustments on this unit and it didn't do any good. Again, everything else in Windows showed up fine, just not the actual video in RealPlayer. I assume it has something to do with the frequency, even though I did set it at 60 hz. The video does show up fine from the desktop though. Pluses: + Comes with all the necessary cables + Great price + Compact, nice looking unit + Real video looks pretty good on the TV Minuses: - Very sparse documentation - Even though the Real video shows up fine on the desktop, text in Windows is barely legible - you can't even read the names of the icons on the desktop. It might just be the TV we used it on (Panasonic 50" plasma). NOTE: This unit does video only. You can run the audio through your PC as usual, or get a cable to hook up your PC audio output to the TV.

61 Inch Monitor with No Distortion

by Titan66@rochester.rr.com on 6/4/2006

This thing is simply amazing. There is no other way to expain this. I was hesitant in purchasing this because i didnt know if buy.com hadnt changed the picture of the Grandtec product. There is a newer version of this out and it is just one solid cable with branching adapters. But i did recieve the item as shown, with all the cables i needed. This is nicer because you can replace the cables if you need longer ones. Also this has a zoom-size feature if you need the font to be bigger. The fine tune button is suppose to "fine tune" the picture but it doesnt seem to do much for me. The small font is blurry but its good enough that you can make out the words. It might hurt your eyes after a long amount of time. This thing is the best accessory ever invented. I am now sitting back in my recliner with a wireless keyboard in my lap and a mouse on my end table looking at a 61 inch tv. The picture is not distorted and fits perfectly on the screen. If you want to play games like counter-strike or watch videos through the dvd player on your computer, or a clip on you tube. this thing is definitly for you. Its not the best for emailing or instant messaging though. Another thing is dont buy this if you need audio into your tv, because this is just video. I am completely satisfied with this item.
