When I tried to use it to extend my laptop screen to my CRT TV it didn't work.
I bought this to play videos from my laptop on TV, as well as to watch Netflix, Hulu, etc on my TV from my web browser.

IMAGE QUALITY ~ The image quality isn't too bad but it seems that it might depend partly on your computer and the TV.

I got this product to be able to watch video from my computer on my tv. After a bunch of research, this product seemed to get the best reviews, esp for the price, and overall I agree. Once I finally put it together and tried to use it, I found a few nuisances that you should be aware of, especially if you are a NTSC (e.g., U.S.A. users).


First off, just to be clear, the item that shipped is a Manhattan PC TV Converter Model #150095 (UPC 766623150095)

The product is shipped decently packaged but there's nothing in there that can't handle a little rough and tumble anyway. It includes:
- the converter, which is just slightly larger than a cigarette pack
- 1 yellow video rca cable
- 1 usb power cord
- 1 vga cord
- 1 instruction manual, which is alright. It's not 100% clear on everything but the essentials are there.
- Note: there is NO S-video cable provided.

On one of the short end of the converter, there is a VGA-in port.

On the other short end, there is the plug for the USB power cable plus a pair of jumper switches labeled 1 & 2.

On one long end, there are all the output ports. You have one each of video out, s-video out, and VGA-out.

On the opposite long end, there are buttons to adjust settings for the converter. There are buttons for "LEFT", "RIGHT", "DOWN", "UP", "MENU", and "ZOOM".


I recommend that the first thing to do is to check that the jumpers are set for your needs (noted very simply in the instruction manual). If you are an NTSC (e.g., U.S.A.

I just purchased one of these VGA to NTSC >("Never-Twice-Same-Color") "scan converters" to set up a secondary computer system for home theater VIDEO internet streaming. I'm a well seasoned electronics engineering tech and do a fair amount of experimenting with audio/video, etc. I've tried several different (and MORE expensive) brands and types of scan converters on the market in the interest of obtaining the best overall VIDEO picture quality. This unit works EXCELLENT!
PROS: this unit has ALL the "necessary" setting adjustments to allow scan size, posistioning, color intensity (saturation), tint (hue), anti-flutter (flick) and sharpness control. Overall the unit (and I imagine it's "clones") performs excellent especially for VIDEO usage. Using an "S-Video" hookup with a decent TV receiver renders the best overall picture quality although the 75 ohm "composite" RCA output works as well as expected for any composite video signal. ALL adjustments have decent and usable range--better than many others on the market. If used for fine computer graphics/text it performs ok if computer resolution is set at it's lowest settings and/or DPI is increased. NONE of "any" these so called VGA to TV "scan converters" on the market will ever approach HI-DEF or the fine resolutions obtained from a real computer monitor due to the frame timing/scan rate conversions from VGA necessary to properly feed an NTSC signal to a typically slow "interlaced" TV receiver/monitor, however this unit DOES work "very acceptably". This unit (and most others) power from the 5 volt source of the computer's USB port which makes for a neat, quick and easy hook-up.

I'm quite happy with this product. It did everything promised, and is great if you want to play PC games on a TV screen or watch movies or TV shows from Netflix or Amazon Unbox. It doesn't provide sound, so a good purchase to use with this is something like this, which will allow you to play sound from the computer over your TV's speakers.
It is lacking in documentation, with only one fold-out sheet in barely-English, and when I first plugged it in the picture was terrible, but using the buttons on the unit I was able to drastically improve the picture; it's actually so good now that I can almost read a Word document at normal size from my couch. (I basically just cranked the sharpness as far up as possible and fiddled with the "Flick", whatever that means, until it was good.) It includes a VGA cable, so you can connect the computer to the box and the box to your monitor, and a way-too-short composite video cable, which is basically useless unless your computer happens to be less than 2 feet from your TV; I couldn't find a composite video extension cable anywhere, and S-video gives a better picture anyway. I eventually used an S-video cable, but that will run you about another $20 at RadioShack. Other than those two things, this is a very good product for an excellent price.

This product does everything it claims at a small price. I am using my non digital/non HDTV television as a monitor in just a few minutes. Unless mentioned otherwise all cables are included with converter unit.

First, plug the USB connection into the PC for power to the unit. Then, plug the VGA cable into the PC. Lastly, plug either the standard video or S-video cable into an input on the television. I opted for the S-video (purchased separately). I have also tried the standard video cable that comes with the unit. For me there was virtually no difference in quality. I am using a Sony 27" television. If I had it do over again, I would probably not get the S-video cable. However, if you need a cable longer than a couple of feet, you will most likely end up getting another cable, as one supplied isn't very long.

You will also need sound if you plan to watch videos or movies. Please note this device does not come with any cabling or adapters for audio. To accomplish this I use a MP3 stereo adapter (I use a 6 foot cable, I bought it at Fred Meyer for about $3.50, I am sure you can get one on amazon for less than a dollar). This is basically a cable with a standard size headphone jack on one end (to plug into the pc headphone jack) and standard red and white RCA audio plugs on the other (for plugging into your tv or stereo). I plug my audio into my stereo for movie purposes.

Other than what I mentioned so far, you may have to adjust a couple of the buttons on the converter unit. Basically, these are for centering your picture. I put about 30 seconds worth of time into this procedure the very first time I used the device, and that is all that it required.

I have shown this device to a few friends, and all plan to get one. As a side note, I have mostly used my setup to watch online movies and tv episodes through hulu or through tv network websites. I hope this helps.
