Works as advertised

Pros: Does what it says it does, doesn't require much fiddling to get working either. I've been using it for about 3 years now.

Cons: No support for 1080i/p from the VGA side. I know those aren't standard resolutions for VGA, but it can be done. Because of that my TV isn't displaying at an optimal resolution.

Box gets pretty hot and will drop out during long sessions of use (4+ hours), I actually made some cardboard feet to prop it up and allow it to vent a bit, I haven't had any drop outs since. I keep it turned off when not in use (see review for how I manage this).

If the box gets no signal for about 30 or so minutes the light on the back turns red and won't get a signal until power cycled. This was annoying at first, but I managed a workaround

Minor ghosting when there's alot of black and white contrast.

All in all this has been a really good purchase, and at that price, it's unbeatable.

I got it because my TV had noticeable lag with videogames when using HDMI & component (RGB), but not VGA. I currently have all my systems hooked up through a component switch box, then the switch box connects to this device.

A few things I've done to eliminate the overheating & need to powercycle before use (red light). First I made some cardboard feet and stuck them to the bottom to prop it up, this helps with heat and eliminates the sudden shut downs. Secondly I made a USB power cable for this and plugged it into my TV. My TV doesn't supply power to USB unless it's been turned on. When the TV goes on, so does the box. This fixes both the need to powercycle before use, and the constant heat issue. A word to Monoprice, sell a USB cable for this!! Or manufacture it with a usb micro/mini port. Most TVs have untapped USB ports. The box needs 5v 1A, which is perfect.

VGA Monitor to TV Cable box

  • John,

Pros: The product did work exactly as advertised.The product was easy to use connect RCA cables from cable TV box and connect VGA monitor cable. There are a few function switches to use again very easy, Also this gave me 1080i High Definition.

Cons: The converter box has no on/off switch. The box does get hot but not so hot that you worry about it I'm not sure if that is by design that it stays on all the time or a missed design. I worry about it burning out early anytime anything gets hot it has potential to burn out early.. So I fixed that by connecting it to a power strip with a switch so I could turn it and the other outlets associated with the monitor out when I'm done.

The product did exactly as advertised. I wanted to use an old flat screen monitor as a TV in a work area. After numerous attempts at splicing RCA cables to VGA I soon realized that VGA monitors and TV cable box's do not speak the same language, I needed this Needed converter box to take me from component (YpbPr) TV to VGA monitor. The product was easy to use connect RCA cables from cable TV box and connect VGA monitor cable. I recommend this product and the price was right..

Attaching a Wii to a VGA Monitor

  • ermiller79,

Pros: • Easy to Use
• Compact
• Nice Setting and Controls
• Nice Display/Output Quality

Cons: None that really come to mind. Perhaps an option to use a remote control to turn it on/off.

This great little device allowed me to connect a Nintendo Wii to a VGA monitor using a component video cable. We choose not to have a regular television in our house, and this device allowed us to maintain that choice when we decided on getting a Wii for our two young boys. Video play through Netflix on the Wii looks very good. The audio output sends nice sound out through the small computer speakers we use.

Pros: Worked well when it worked.

Cons: Suddenly gave up the ghost.

LED comes on now like there's not an issue, but my screen swears there's no signal. I know my Wii is outputting cuz I have the audio hooked up to a separate device, but no video seems to be coming through...any ideas? I've tried pressing the Menu button for different amounts of seconds and the Up and Down buttons in random combos and for differing amounts of time, but still nothing... Help, please?

Thank you for your review. And I am truly sorry to hear of your experience you have had with this product.

For now, if possible, please try a couple of troubleshooting techniques with me to see if we can resolve your issue.

Have you tried a different Wii?

What about a different set of cables?

Have you also tried a different device?

Please let me know if the problems still occur. If it does, I can assist you in obtaining a replacement or a return RMA to see if a replacement will work better. We do have a lifetime warranty on cables as well as a 1 year warranty for everything else. And obtaining a replacement is of no additional cost. If you want to continue with an RMA just please provide the order# and if you wanted to return it or obtain a replacement. Thank you!

Great til it dies

Pros: does what it's supposed to plug and play cheaper than anything else out there.

Cons: no HD resolutions goes into suspend mode after getting no signal in, but does not wake up again when the signal returns.

The unit died after about a year of use. Not sure why as it just sat under the TV the whole time.
