Honestly, when it comes to buying cheaper things for expensive hobbies, sometimes you get a little skeptical about the product you want or need to buy. That's very wise. However, I must say that there are certain off-brand products out there that are made with decent quality that will satisfy your needs! This cable is one of them (So far I've had it for a week with no issues). Need to save money? Need to or want to play Xbox on your monitor? This is for you.

There is nothing special about this cable, other than it is $5 and is eligible under prime.

The build quality feels terrible, it uses brittle and cheap plastics compared to the heavier Microsoft cables.
The split where the Audio cables are is short compared to the official VGA cable, so if you are like me and have to plug them into spots that are not very close, you may have trouble.

The shielding isn't very good so interference will happen.

But.. it works.
For now.

It's super cheap, and it's good enough.

Ghosting/color bleeding can be avoided by not having the cable near other electronic devices, or plugging it into an extender cord. I did that for awhile, and it had worse ghosting issues than the default cable.

The cheap price means that you have to work around the cable's limitations and problems. but when you set things up right, it will deliver the same audio and video quality of the more expensive cables.. it's just hard to get things set right.

It works great, but be careful. The GPU's in 360 consoles are notoriously easy to over-heat. If you install this adapter, in the display settings, stay at a reasonable resolution. Going past 1400x900 is a really bad idea, and it will overheat your console unless you have some kind of after-market cooling system. In under one week, my console died by playing about one hour a-day at about 1600x900 resolution. Keep it low, and you shouldn't have problems with over-heating. other than that, it's a great product.

Don't buy this cord. The resolution looks terrible when it's ghosting. It's tough to even deal with and not worth buying it in the first place. Its cheap and it works, just very poorly. Some people do not have the same problem but i did and it wasn't worth buying. Next time I'll make sure to buy a different one because the image quality is very bad.. My experience.

Let me start off by saying that if you want to have 1080p quality out of this cable, you are going to be angry because there is some serious ghosting at that quality level. However, at some of the lower settings, it performs great. The ghosting is so minor that I have to get close to the screen and pay attention to see it. At the lowest and second-to-lowest setting, I can't even see the ghosting.

Whilst the resolution settings I have it at are low, the picture is much better than the 480i quality I was getting on my ancient television. I can actually read text clearly, and all of the action is on screen instead of being cut of. I was able to get a small 15" monitor hooked up right above my desk that allows me to play in the comfort of my room without having to worry if my cousins are using the television my Xbox is hooked up to. I love the convenience.

So, if you have some bucks to spare you might as well go for the Microsoft cable. It is about 50 USD, and gives off a better picture than this cable at higher resolutions. But for a penny-pinching dude like me who is willing to use lower resolutions (because I don't care much) this is a good purchase. At the price it is at, is worth the gamble. Just be warned that lower resolutions look worse the larger the screen is, so the cable is really only ideal for smaller screens.

I've read that some people are having a problem with the audio. To fix that, just purchase an RCA female-to-male coupler and a female-to-female coupler. This will allow you to either plug in headphones or speakers to the cable, and it is also a cheap alternative for those without the necessary jacks. I purchased both of the aforementioned items for about 8 USD.

You can not ask for more from a cable that only cost 5 bucks, I received gold plated cables and they do exactly what I need them to do, Great picture and sound! I previously had some that I paid 35 dollars for and these work just as well!

I read a lot of negative reviews regarding the "Ghosting" problem and was worried...and well, they were right

The only resolution where there is no ghosting is at 640x480, which is an eyesore in it of itself.
Stranger thing is, in addition to ghosting at higher resolutions, the picture never fits fully to the screen (even with changing the settings on the actual monitor and whatnot)on any other resolution EXCEPT 640x480. The lowest resolution is literally the only one that works properly and without ghosting.

But like all the other reviews, it's a $5 cable compared to the $40 "Microsoft Xbox 360 official" cable and it works at 640x480...so its not total suckage, and if you have a super small/old monitor with VGA and you want to play your Xbox 360 on it, this is great.

But if you're like most of us that wanted to hook the 360 up to our nice monitors with 1920x1080 resolution, you MIGHT want to shell out the $40 on the microsoft xbox 360 official vga cable.
I have not bought that official one myself, but I just might end up doing that if I get sick of this low resolution crap.

Another thing is that I've heard of people having similar ghosting problems and they contacted the seller eforcity and got a replacement and the replacement supposedly worked really well without any problems. So I might ask them what they could help me out with as well.

But basically, have low expectations of the image quality, and remember, you get what you pay for.

I didn't get any ghosting like some other reviewers are reporting. Arrived when it said it would. I would definitely recommend.
It's a good cheap alternative to dropping $40 at Microsoft for the official cable.

This product has really bad quality on a 40'' tv. The original microsoft vga does not have resolution issues. This cable casts a fuzzy image, edges are not smooth, looks worse than composite.
