Product Description

Starting July 18, 2013, new 2013 version of the VHD-Wii2HDMI replaces the older version. The newer version has multiple design improvements.
1) The 720P / 1080P output resolution switcher is now push button, easier operation than the internal needle switch.
2) Larger spacing between the HDMI socket and the 3.5mm audio jack for more practical application.
3) Better looking and better low power design.

Genuine ViewHD: A Must Have for Large Screen HDTV

Nintendo Wii is the only major gaming console that does not have HDMI output. The console's output resolution is only 480i/p, the lack of a HDMI output on the Wii makes installations and wiring more complex and troublesome.

Wii fans have been waiting for a convenient Wii HDMI adapter for years, Thanks to ViewHD the long wait is over.

The Wii2HDMI up converts the standard Wii 480P output into a digital HDMI 720P or 1080P + audio signal allowing video & audio to be carried over a single HDMI cable to a 720P or 1080P HDTV.

Wii2HDMI is very simple to use and operate, just plug it into the back of the Wii, plug in a HDMI cable and you're done.


Note:
* The HDMI output is either 720P or 1080P, please make sure your TV can support 720P or 1080P.
* The 720P to 1080P push button switch (inside the red box) is located on the front side at the top right corner.
* Also check out item "VHD-W2H", which is the white version to match white console.

* Please use only "POWERED" HDMI switcher for this item.

I apologize for the lengthy review. But I felt it was necessary that someone that did the research let you, the buyer, know beforehand EXACTLY what you're in for when purchasing this product.

Let's get the obvious out of the way: The Wii is not capable of outputting a High Definition picture. It's only capable of Enhanced Definition TV (EDTV) which means it can run most games in the Wii and Gamecube Libraries in 480 Progressive Scan.

Having said that, do NOT expect that this adapter will magically turn the Wii's last-generation graphics into something comparable to the PS3/XB360's visual output.

Let's weigh out the positives and negatives of this product so that you can make a definite decision if this is worth the investment.

TIP: Most people think that having the best possible connection will automatically give you the best visual experience. However, to get the best picture quality, it's actually a balance between your TV settings as well as having the highest video output you can get out of your electronic devices. I suggest you turn off ALL extra picture processing to get the PUREST video output possible. That means turn off edge enhancement, motion plus, dynamic contrast, etc. Trust me when I say you'll be doing yourself a HUGE favor.

NOW... onto the review:

Pros:
- HDMI output!: These days, most newer TVs lack built in Component/Composite connections. I myself have a Samsung LED Smart TV which requires an adapter (packaged with the TV) to plug Component/Composite cables into it. It's VERY ugly, even WITH proper cable management. The Wii HDMI adapter will allow you to employ the use of a single HDMI cable, which is absolutely great in terms of cleaning up the wiring behind your TV.

I bought this item for other reasons then most due to the Wii only having RCA jack outputs. I have a complete home theater system with HDMI switching on my receiver that i ran all my wires behind the wall. So when i got the Wii i now had to run an RCA cable across my floor creating an eye sore on my living room. With this device i was able to hook up the Wii with HDMI into my receiver and pass the signal to my TV with no problems and now no wires running across my floor.

As for the picture quality i would say that its as good if not a tiny bit better then the RCA cables. For any one thinking that this will magically transform Wii games in hi resolution blu-ray quality images you will be mistaken, but the image quality will not be downgraded what so ever.

BONUS, by being able to run the Wii through HDMI to my audio receiver and not straight into my TV I'm now being able to take advantage of the Wii's Dolby Digital sound through my 5.1 speaker system. The games sound so much better through the surround system with a sub woofer. When i bough this I really did not even think about how this would improve the audio.

Again to sum it up; In my case this was only bought to avoid having a single RCA out put that was running straight into my TV on a custom built in wall wired home theater system. The image quality was great and the audio was great too with absolutely no loos of quality.

I purchased this adapter to use my Wii with a computer monitor and Home theatre projector. It works better than expected. Here's some info and then opinion.

Pros:
1. Works as expected. Converts Wii output to HDMI output
2. Bonus - HDMI also supports audio if your monitor / TV supports it. (In other words - audio is sent on the same HDMI cable as the video)
3. Stereo out jack works as expected.
4. The vendor shipped this product same day, and I received it VERY quickly even with standard shipping - Thanks guys!
5. WAY less cable clutter since in my case I only needed to plug in my HDMI cable, and route the Wii's sensor bar cable. No extra power supplies, no stereo cable, no clutter by way of using a Wii component cable & adapters to a different video converter unit.

Cons:
1. If you need to use the audio out jack - you will need to purchase another HDMI cable with less plastic on the connector. The HDMI cable included in my purchase covers the audio out jack enough to prevent plugging in a stereo plug. I had several spare HDMI cables with less plastic at the connectors, so the cable supplied didn't matter to me.
2. Poor documentation. The documentation consists of the writing on the converters box and isn't very useful.

Other comments:
1. I read a few reviews complaining about the resolution of this device. Folks - Wake up! The Wii supports composite video, and component video. You aren't going to get 1080p images from an original image of lesser resolution. While the image will look much nicer on your big screen, it won't look like a Blue-Ray dvd image. That said - this little box does get it's job done quite well.

This item does not work if you're using it to plug into an HDMI-to-DisplayPort cable (for use with a monitor instead of a TV). It doesn't mean this is a bad product, I just want to make sure anyone trying to connect to a flat screen monitor is aware of this.
