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.

-Jeff S quote

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...

Product Overview

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.
