The Ultimate XP Pro: PC to Video Component is the best converter for you, if you need to have ultimate control of the output image. It works with more screen resolutions than any of the other converters; and has more image-adjustment features for tweaking the image so that it looks as clear as possible. It is the only converter that uses a remote control; which is so much easier when you need to adjust the output image.
Customer Reviews of Grandtec Ultimate XP Pro PC to Video Component - VGA - PAL
The GXP 2000 works just as advertised. It transfers a standard image to my CRT TV via a 15 ft, S cable. Picture is good to excellent. Quality of the image is the same as a 4 head VCR on the 4 hour setting. I did have to reduce resolution on the video card because of overscan but this was covered in the installation directions so it was no problem. Set up took perhaps 20 minutes. I am able to watch streaming video from the internet on the TV with no problems.
Not clear at all for flat screen TV3/25/2008
I wouldnt recommend this for connecting to flat screen TV's as resolution is very poor. Grandtec makes an PC to HDTV which we are trying this week. Screen lighting was dim Text readability very poor Graphics were just ok. Came with all cables and USB powered (Nice). Good price considering you get svideo, Composite cables, video out cable, USB power, PC monitor cable all included.
the device seemed pretty complicated with all the connections... and power input... i was actually optimistic to see it at work... <br><br> however the video quality is no better than any regular non-powered vga to s-video/composite adapter... even using the component video connection... it is no better.... (I don't see the point of even having the component video output at all, other than to make the box bigger and more complicated)... <br><br> it would've at least been a little better if all the input/output connections were only on one side of the box.. then i could've at least ran the wires out the "back"... but there were ports on 2 sides of the box... so how do you make the wiring cleaner? <br><br> bottom line: i don't recommend this product... based on the price... get a cheap video card with s-video out... if you have a notebook.. and only have a vga port.... invest in a docking station. seriously... I wish I hadn't bought this...
Works well for movies but not perfect2/12/2005
I bought this item so I can watch downloaded films on my television. It is adequate at doing this. There are two minor drawbacks. First: The resolution is not nearly as sharp as the 480i component signal from a DVD player. The sharpness of the picture is almost exactly the same as a good quality 4-head vcr. It is great for watching movies but dont expect hi def or even dvd quality. Second: The color levels are a bit off. The image is far too fuzzy for web browsing or word processing through a television. It doesnt make the television a monitor but it transforms the PC into a great VCR! I am very happy with it for the price.
