5.0 out of 5 stars VGA HD Cable - what it does and how well. 1 May 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Reading these reviews it's clear there is alot of confusion on exactly what this cable does, how well it preforms. Many of the poor reviews are due to an understandable mess of confusion between analog and digital, HDMI, VGA, Component, resolution levels and TV set up.

I'll try to make a brief outline of exactly what this Cable can do and how well.

1. Connects Xbox 360 to a HDTV with a VGA port at resoultions up and including 1080P.

- VGA is every bit as good as HDMI, many people assume HDMI is better because it's digital it's not, as this is a brief review i won't get into that debate but a google should reveal all the info you need. Both should give better image output than component but not always for some of the reason's below.

- Technically there should be no difference in the data carried by VGA or HDMI however many HDTV are optimised for HDMI inputs and this is the important point, u may well have a VGA port on your TV but it may disable many of your HDTV's image enhancing features and limit the output resolution.

This is most often the reason some have complained of washed out colours, so u need to check your manual. An update is due in the next week or so from MS to give more flexibility to the VGA settings so this may help some users with these problems.

2. Those thinking of buying the Xbox 360 Elite for the HDMI connection. This should be obvious now but depending on how well your TV accepts a signal through VGA u may well have no need for a HDMI enabled console to get the best picture at resolutions up to and including 1080P.

3. Enables standard DVD's to be played at upscaled resolutions - in short this means your normal DVDs will look significantly better than played through a standard DVD player. i.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product for the price you pay 27 Dec 2006

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally got my hands on one of these babies! As a poor student (who owns an Xbox 360!), I like many other's can't afford a 42" HDTV yet, so this is the next best thing. I have a Dell 17" LCD and it works just fine. On the xbox menu system, I set the resolution to 1280x1024 and kept the format to 4:3. My monitor automatically detects this, and autoadjusts so Gears of War is shown in widescreen format. Much better detail than standard TV as suggested by other reviewers. Tempted to upgrade to 19" LCD monitor, but we'll see! :P Buy this if you have a spare monitor/ can't afford a HDTV yet. Next step.....speakers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs a HDTV 19 Nov 2005
This item enables you to connect your xbox 360 to a pc monitor which has a high definition picture (even if its old). This cable will also save you from buting a £1000 HDTV just simply connect the cable into the back of your monitor (you will require a female to female gender changer if the socket is on a cable coming from the moniter) and the audio cables into the back of a stereo or oc speakers. For example i have a 1280x1024 moniter which means i can play my games at 720p.
I recommened this item to people who do not want to fork out over £1000 for a HDTV.

5.0 out of 5 stars much better than the component cable 19 Jun 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had the component cable hooked up to my hdtv and the graphics were good... bought this, set the resolution in the dashboard to 1280 X 1024, and WOW!!!! its simply amazing.

Dont even bother with the component cable in the premium package. With the MS VGA cable you can set the resolution in the 360 dashboard to the native resolution of your HDTV, so it doesnt have to upscale from 720P/1080i to the actuall resolution of the panel, you get perfect 1:1 pixel mapping.

With this cable, it adds more settings to the 360 menus. You can set the resolution in the 360 dashboard from 640by480 all the way upto 1920x1080).

Im assuming that all the people who are saying this gives a worse picture than the component cable havent been into the menu and changed it from its default 640by480 (VGA) to the highest res that there HDTV supports (thats 1080p :) - in your face sony).

If youve got a HDTV, this is a must have. Go buy this. Go buy this now!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 10 May 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This cable does the job. It's better than the one that came with the premium 360. Colours are more vibrant and the graphics are crisp and clear. Using this cable also results in the 360 upscaling DVD's, which is nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy other VGA cable 10 Feb 2007
By Z. Liu
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've got a 360 VGA cable for sometime from "GAMEware", and it was an painful expirence since it cost me £[...] and performed even worse than a standard TV.
I bought this cable yesterday, and it is amazing (won't be so if there is nothing to be compared with) It is very well shield and colors outputed are juicy.
Get it if you want to same money and play your games on a PC monitor. It works pretty well and without any distortion. (My monitor is LG L1718S, 17" 1280 x 1024)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is more like it! 1 April 2006
When i first decided to buy a 360 i was really wondering what the difference would be between seeing the action on a normal TV and a HD Tv. My first impressions were good but i could see that a normal TV wasnt doing the system justice. Like many people the prospect of spending a fortune that i couldnt afford was offputting. This cable enabled me to connect the 360 to my TFT monitor. My monitor supports 1280 * 1024 resolution which is the alternative to 720p (The medium HD output onthe 360. It really is as simple as connect this lead to your monitor via the VGA (in) connection do in to options onyour 360 and select 1280 * 1024 in the display section. The result is running Call of Duty and it looking the same as it does on my high end PC. If you were running the 360 on a standard TV and were wondering if its worth getting this cable then go ahead and do it!
