3.0 out of 5 stars Same switch as the N64, an idea for parents December 28, 2001
If you have the N64 RF switch do not buy this, its exactly the same as the N64 switch! Anyone who has kids and an N64 might want to consider this for vacation purposes. Yes that's right, bring along the RF switch, a gamecube, controllers, games and your kids on your next long vacation. That way it will keep them quiet for a while, and with the RF switch, you always know that your gamecube will work with the hotel's televisions, because the only thing that this RF switch requires is a cable ready television. Meanwhile with the normal gamecube hookup it requires a more advanced television for the audio and video channels. Anyway the practical use of the RF switch is that it will work on any TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and Easy to Use June 20, 2002
By Emily
Just the other day I was trying to hook my Nintendo 64 up to the TV in my guest room, and discovered that there wasn't a red, yellow, or white plug in which to put the adapter cords. I was really upset, for this was the only working TV in my house at the time. But, just the other day, when my new gamecube arrived, I discovered that this RF adapter was the answer to my problem. All you have to do is unscrew the cable cord, screw the cable cord into the back of the adapter, and screw the adaper into the TV! I know, it does sound like a lot of twisting of the little cables, and I wont denie that that is the one con of the product, but, overall the picture was clear and everything worked like a charm.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get it only if you need it November 3, 2001
By A Customer
This is an RF adapter for your Gamecube. Yes. You may think wow a way to hook my GameCube up to my TV. However, an RF connection is the most ancient way on the planet to connect a game console to a TV! It was around with Nintendo's first system! It crams all the picture and sound together and results in a less clear picture and mono sound. Any TV that was purchased in the last 10 years or so should have a better available connection, Like A/V composite. (That's the Red and white jack for stero sound and yellow jack for video) Or even better, S-video (The big connector) with better picture seperation. However, the very BEST connection is component. It seperates all of the reds blues and greens and uses the white and red jacks for stereo sound. If you want to take advantage of Game Cubes progressive scan HD-TV 1080i capabilities on your HD-ready set, you should get the component connection cords that should be availble at the sytems launch.

5.0 out of 5 stars High-quality adaptor that produces a low-quality TV image November 18, 2001
By M. Ross
This is a great RF adaptor. But the quality is low, compared to other methods of input, such as component video. Please make sure you need to get an RF adaptor, since RF conversion is the lowest-quality kind of input conversion. Don't fault the adaptor for this -- the adaptor is very well-made and will certainly do the job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, if it is what you need November 19, 2001
By A Customer
This device is great if all you have is a RF connector on your television. If you have any other choice for connecting your tv to the gamecube, I would go with it, but if this is all you have, it gets the job done.

2.0 out of 5 stars Atari 2600 used the same type of adaptor December 5, 2001
This adaptor has been around since the days of the Atari 2600, and hasn't really changed much since then.
Of course if you need to use it, you need to use it. A piece of advice though, the N64 uses exactly the same connection, so if you have one for the N64, or need one for N64, buy just one, and seeing as how the N64 adaptor typically costs more (maybe it's the nifty box it comes in), buy the GameCube adaptor and save yourself some cash.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does the job
Why anyone would give this less than 5 stars is beyond me. If you need an RF switch to play your gamecube, do not buy anything less than this one!
