If unsure which to get: This is THE BEST of the RF Modulators I have used
on December 15, 2010
[...]Works perfectly with no noise, buzz or video distortion that is noticeable. (I do not have HD and for an old tube tv, the picture is as good as could ever be expected).
I have and use (used) the RCA and the Phillips (the silver). If you are not sure, of the three, this one is clearly the best.
The RCA has been and was until it broke, always temperamental and had noise and video distortion problems from the day I bought it to the day it just broke/burned itself out.
If you just look at the picture of the RCA RF Modulator you can see that it is the only one with a configuration with inputs and outputs coming in then out from two sides. It was illogical and constantly annoying to make sure I could see and make sure which was the coaxial in and which was the coaxial out.
This Belkin is plain, basic, clearly labeled and worked right out of the box flawlessly.
FINALLY - THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE THAT MAY MATTER TO ANYONE UNSURE - This Belkin model can be set up vertically (as the picture shows) but the rim around the bottom of the picture slides on and of so you can use it as a horizontal box.
You have the option to choose to use the base and have a thin profile vertical modulator which I can see could be very desirable, especially in keeping the video wires from crossing/touching the power line and causing static noise/video problems.
