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

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
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.
