Bought this converter a couple of months back because I could already see that the one I had was on its way out soon. Fast forward to Memorial weekend, my old converter's blue channel fritzed out so I pulled out the converter from Monoprice. When I connected it, I saw immediately that I needed to attune it to NTSC...only I couldn't do that...because the switches that allow you to do that were completely missing (the space where the switches are supposed to go was covered with a QC Passed sticker...ironically. And if you look at the product image you can see the switches clearly there). That rendered this simple converter COMPLETELY USELESS!!!!! I've never had a problem with Monoprice products before...so i'm extremely disappointed in this hot mess. I don't expect nor will seek restitution. Instead I write this review so that nobody else falls for this trap. Other companies are selling the same device. Try one of them so you don't fall victim to this. I am adding photos so you can compare what I got with what's being advertised.
If you live in the US, DO NOT BUY THIS. If you live in a PAL country, it *might* work for you.
I don't know what Einstein designed this device, but there are 2 TV signal standards: NTSC (N. America) and PAL (Europe, etc.). If you plug this device into a N. American NTSC system (ie an old tube TV with an RCA input), your video will roll rapidly, in B&W.
Ahhh, but the manufacturer claims it supports both NTSC and PAL....except you have to switch it from the default PAL to NTSC - USING A MENU YOU *CANNOT READ* BECAUSE IT IS IN PAL! Brilliant!!!! Who's the rocket scientist that came up with that idea? Really? Please do society a favor and remove them from the gene pool now, before somebody dies. Thank you.
Save your money, and buy one that comes with DIP switches to set the video type - they ALWAYS WORK, even with no TV and the power off :-)
UPDATE: the seller was very helpful and sent one pre-configured correctly, plus a pre-paid return. But you need to be sure you either get the right product version, the right seller, OR I saw somewhere that some flat panel tvs are more forgiving, and can actually display a PAL signal. So if you (or a friend) have one, try plugging it in there to change the display type. After changing it, the setting stays between power cycles.
* The fact that it works.
* The settings menu is easy to use and navigate.
* Picture quality is pretty meh.
* Setup was a bit confusing at first [the box just flickered color bars at me and then blackscreened], until I realized that I had to explicitly have my laptop check for an additional video device [in the resolution/display settings on your computer, click something that says "Detect" or something similar].
* When first started up, it will not catch the video's sync. Just power-cycle the box [read: plug and unplug] and it will work fine.
* The DIP switches aren't nicely labeled, so just flip them until color bars flash when you plug the device in. Once you see color instead of grayscale bars, you are in your TV's correct mode [probably NTSC].
* There is a little bit of lag between the output it provides and the signal it gets. It's not crippling [which is good, considering I bought this to use my laptop as a game console, plugged into a TV], but it is a bit noticeable.
* Image settings aren't saved after powering off.
* It may occasionally get stuck in a resolution when switching. Either powercycle the box [bad, as you will lose your image adjustments]
* Even at 640x480 [about SDTV native res], the image isn't quite as clear as most other composite input sources.
* A TV that takes a composite signal uses 480i [some old game systems use 240p, but that doesn't matter here]. Your average computer screen resolution is much, much higher, usually closer to HD quality. So, for signals much bigger than 640x480, they will contain text that is a blurry unreadable mess. This is to be expected. Video fares much better, as downscaling it to TV resolution looks just like a normal picture on a TV.
* Composite has a bit of an issue with color -- because all 3 color signals are packed into one wire, some color resolution is lost, and colors tend to smear. This isn't the box's fault, although it has picture quality issues beyond that. So even at 640x480, there will be text smearing due to color blending.
* The image will probably tear. With an NTSC TV, even though you might be feeding the box a 60hz signal, the TV runs at 59.94hz. Not too noticeable usually. Probably worse with a PAL TV [VGA signal at 60, output signal at 50].
* The zoom button switches between whether the box is to account for overscan or not. Press this button.
It does what it says. It isn't the best product, but it works just fine, and isn't too expensive. It doesn't contain any advanced filters to help improve the image quality, just normal TV image adjustment settings.
