VGA Cable... Does what it's meant for pretty well – Premium VGA HD AV Cable for XBox 360 (160CM-Length) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very good alternative to XBox official brand.
Supports optical sound (not tested), and has Composite Video, too.
Cable is reasonable length.
Cons:
Build is slightly lacking. Materials seem a bit cheap, but when it comes to cables, you don't really notice the difference in performance.
Other:
Definitely worth the drastic price decrease from official wares.
Recommended for computer monitors only, there's really no point in using on a PC input on your HDTV. You may need an external sound system or buy a RCA to 3.5mm audio cable to go to LINE IN in order to use sound on your computer. If changing cables is a problem for you, you might want to try ordering a VGA manual switch if you go from computer to Xbox inputs often.
Bottomline:
This is a great tool for traveling students in order to reduce the amount of screens to be moved around (dual purpose monitor).
Strongly recommended for the weak of wallet.
