The box contains leads for every possible combination of input and output that the unit can handle which is very good. It's also powered from a USB port via the supplied cable removing the need for a heavy power adapter. This means the unit is very portable and with its leads will fit into the pocket of a laptop case without any problem.
The supplied manual is very brief, but functional. In use it the Converter was pretty much plug and play for me outputting my Samsung NC10 netbook to a Samsung 32" widescreen CRT TV. Connect the supplied VGA cable to the VGA out on your computer and to the VGA in on the Converter. Then choose the appropriate output for your TV and connect the cable. Finally, connect the USB power lead to a free port on the computer. After that just set your PC to output via VGA (usually one of the function keys on a laptop) and set the TV to the appropriate AV channel and there's your picture.
After a few tweaks of the settings on my netbook's graphics card I had a very acceptable picture on the TV. It was a bit blurry to be able to use for tasks like word processing, web surfing, etc, but for watching services like YouTube, BBC iPlayer, etc it was perfectly good - and that was the task I wanted this for.
The unit has some settings of its own if you want to play around with hue, brightness, sizing, etc. I tested with both AV out and S-Video and the picture was good. No more iPlayer on a 10" screen for me! For watching online streaming video this is a recommended product.
I right-clicked my desktop and tried changing the display settings. Ticking the "Extend my Windows desktop onto this computer" resulted in just my desktop/wallpaper picture being displayed on the TV screen (nothing else was displayed, no desktop icons, mouse pointer, or programs etc). So I unticked that option and tried using the function keys on my keyboard.
On my laptop there's an F5 key that shows two squares: one black, one blue. To use the F5 key I pressed and held down the Function button (shown as Fn on my keyboard) then pressed the F5 key. Pressing the F5 key more than once cycled my latop's monitor display through 3 settings: 1st Press) display the screen on laptop only; 2nd Press) display the screen on TV only; 3rd Press) display the screen on both the laptop and the TV. Success!
The colour of the image on my TV is much richer, although depending on the quality of the original image, the TV image can be very slightly blurred, but most definitely acceptable for watching films. The PC to TV setup is not really suitable for working eg typing/reading the text on the internet/Microsoft Word etc unless you significantly increase the zoom display within these programs (imagine trying to read slightly blurred font size 12 text on a sheet of paper 12 feet away).Read more ›
You must remember, as with your monitor, this is video only!!, you still need to cable up the sound as well, this product will not help you do that.
For Sound, you can get an adapter to convert the Stereo sound to composite and then use a standard Red/White/Yellow composite cable to Scart to connect to the TV. But if you want DTS sound, you will require different audio connections, subject to PC sound outputs and Surround Sound input.
This is a great video (yes video) conversion system, small and easy to use.
It would be nice to see Amazon lower the price to £20 like other retail outlets, I am sure they would sell more.
It is made and packaged well. It comes with all the cables you need (VGA cable, svideo, component video lead and USB cable with power plug to power it). The unit has six buttons along the side that let you move the picture up and down zoom in/out or go into a menu to change the size, contrast, brightness, hue, saturation, flick and sharpness and background of the menu - the default settings seemed to be the best but you can alter if it needs tweaking.
The picture is just as clear as I've seen from any other device or from laptops with svideo outputs so no complaints there - would be perfect for watching movies from the laptop on your TV.
Thanks for a great product ClimaxDigital!
