Interesting purchase but with some cons – PC Monitor HDTV VGA Cable for PS3/Wii (1.2-Meter) Reviews

This item is an interesting and usefull purchase for those that have both a wii and a PS3 and want to use a VGA monitor to play. The image quality is good using the wii.
This cons only aplies to the wii, as I could not check with a PS3.
The initial setup is a bit complicated and requires a TV with RGB component input so the Wii can be set to 480p. This is the only mode that the cable can work.
This is an expensive solution to use with only one platform. There are other products in Dealextreme that can provide a similar solution if you only have one console. Check the forum of this product as it provides some interesting sugestions.
As bottomline, this is a great product, quite usefull for those who have both platforms in the same place and want to switch from one to other. However, the installation is a bit tricky as no instructions are provided.
