XBOX 360 VGA Cable worth every penny – Premium VGA HD AV Cable for XBox 360 (160CM-Length) Reviews

Pros:
Use it to connect to a pc monitor Much much much cheaper than xbox's original version It has both VGA and RCA so you don't have to unplug from your tv if you're close enough Cable is long, long enough for my use Picture quality is better than I imagined No ghosting experienced
Cons:
VGA cable end feels cheep, as most cheaper cables do HD would be better but not possible due to compatibility No sound, need to use external speakers unless your monitor has built in speakers
Other:
I just remembered I had this cable and am I ever glad I did! I can pull up my pc monitor and play when people are watching tv. I expected to have to play with it, but it was just plug and play. Picture is as good as the regular RCA cables, not to be confused with the HD, it's no where near HD but very playable on my 17" monitor. Those with ghosting, I play NHL 11 on my older acer flat screen monitor and I don't have any issues. It could depend on the refresh rate of your monitor.
Bottomline:
If you have a need, get them. Even if you don't they are nice to have around. Future shop laughed at me when I asked if there were such a thing as this cable. I went home and googled it and found out xbox actually makes one but for $50! Good ole DX carries it for a fifth of the price.
