    Pros:

    I've seen a lot of reviews for VGA cables such as this one that refer to ghosting: the appearance of duplicate images on the screen. It seems to be the plague of many cheap analog cables, which often have poor shielding.
    However, this cable has no ghosting whatsoever on even the highest resolution the 360 will run it at (1080p).
    Also, the cable has both analog RCA jacks and a digital optical audio port.

    Cons:

    The connector going into the Xbox is as big as the one on the Microsoft-supplied composite cable, so you won't be able to pipe audio out of this if you plug in an HDMI or DVI-HDMI cable - they won't fit together.

    OtherThoughts:

    If you want to hook this up to an older CRT monitor or anything that has its own cable, you'll want to get a VGA gender changer such as SKU 8307 to hook them together.

    Bottomline:

    Great cable, fantastic bang for my buck. Recommended to all who want to hook up their Xbox to a VGA monitor.
