1.0 out of 5 stars DONT BE FOOLED, December 16, 2011
This review is from: eforCity 287237 VGA SVGA to S-Video 3 RCA TV AV Converter Cable Adapter (Electronics)
This cable can NOT work. There are multiple things wrong with this:

First, a VGA port does not output an audio signal, so the red and white jacks on this cord are totally useless anyway

Second, a computer cannot output a 480i signal via the VGA at an acceptable color range for a television. The only way you can output from computer to an older TV is via a PC to TV converter box, or via an S video port on your graphics card which, if you have ever done this, it looks like absolute garbage (base resolution does not shrink to 640x480 very well).

Third, look at the reviews. 160+ saying it doesn't work and only 4 saying it does. A clue?

Fourth, look at the seller. Unknown? Come on!

Amazon should be ashamed to be hosting such obviously fraudulent sales such as this. There should be a Report Fraud function for individual items.

I bought 4 of them thinking "what a deal right?" almost gave some to some fellow dj's I knew. Thank God I didnt. None of them work. Junk!

There are many sellers of this product, and don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Just because it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it won't for anyone else.
