VGA to Component (YpbPr) Converter
Mirror the your PC's VGA output to a Component Video equipped HDTV with this adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter accepts VGA video and 3.5 mm analog stereo audio input signals, and converts them to Component Video (YPbPr) signals for output to an HDTV. It includes pass-through connections for the VGA and stereo audio signals, so you can continue to use your PC's VGA monitor and stereo speakers without conversion or interruption of any kind.
The converter is powered by a 5 VDC AC adapter (included) and has Power, SD/HD, and Mode buttons. The SD/HD button switches between 480p, 720p, and 1080i output resolutions, while the Mode button controls video output filters for Normal, Vivid, Soft, and Sharp settings.
Note that for best results the computer display should be set to a resolution that best matches the the output resolution. See the included manual for details.

CONS: Made the picture blue
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the experience you have had with PID 8668. If I may ask, what devices were you connecting with this converter? Did you happen to try other devices to see if that made any difference? What about different cables? Also, has this been an issue since you first received the converter?
Please let me know if the problem still occurs. If it does, I can assist you in obtaining a replacement to see if it will work better. We do cover this product with a one year warranty and obtaining a replacement is of no additional cost. Or I can help setup an RMA for a return instead if you would prefer. If you want to continue with an RMA, please let me know if you wanted to return it or obtain a replacement. Thank you!

PROS: Easy set up and excellent picture quality. Using on a 48" projection TV and i absolutely flawless picture.
CONS: Adjusting the size of the picture. It may be the TV and not the box but I can work with it.
PROS: Very easy setup. Plug and Play.
CONS: None...thus far. I installed it yesterday...so we'll see about the longevity. There are no moving parts...so not much to break.
PROS: Works easily
Scaler and converter
CONS: Needs better instructions.
PROS: Unit was simple to link up and the connections were easy to figure out, directions are clear and the clearity is superb.
CONS: No cons to mention.
PROS: Works perfectly. Converts VGA to component video. Even converted the 3.5mm audio to RCA.
CONS: First item recieved not working properly (lines through the image). They shipped out a second one right away and it works great!
PROS: Plug and play, worked pretty much after a restart of the system. I can always rely on Monoprice.
CONS: I haven't fiddled with it much but the screen appears framed or something, it probably just doesn't translate directly. Also, the instructions basically tell you to set your resolution to 1024x768 which sort of stretches things. Maybe I'll try a 1080 resolution and see what happens.
PROS: Plug and Play.
Includes Component and VGA cable
Power button to turn off when not in use to save power
Only uses 3Watts of power when in use
CONS: None that I can see
PROS: Allows me to view my computer on my TV
