    The cheapest one

    posted by sw5guilherme on 03/07/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The smallest one i've seen. Works with any VGA output, which is not true when you buy that VGA-RCA cables (e.g SKU 9812). You don't need to find a power plug, because it's USB powered. Really cheap,
    Cons:
    Image is blurry and sometimes noisy. You can watch a video, but it's not confortable to read webpages or any text in small font...

    Cons:
    - Every time I reboot my pc I have to reconnect the device. Otherwise the signal gets completely distorted. - The secondary VG...

    A Good Choice

    posted by nellob on 06/06/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Things I would have liked to have known before I bought this are: - it really is tiny, quite a bit smaller than I expected (a good thing) - the s-video and tv outputs appear to both be on permanently, at least on my unit - I tried a bunch of different resol...
    Cons:
    Highest output frequency is 60Hz (if you care). The manual truly is hopeless, but as there are only 2 switches with 2 states e...

    Pros:

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I have a Dell Inspiron notebook and it does not have a video output. If you are using datashows anda new tv sets, no problem: all of them has a vga input. But i need to use it with old tv sets, that only uses video input (like rca cables). For me this is th...
    Cons:
    You have to use a usb cable to power (a cable more...) and i guess that the case is not really the best you see in life. But it...
