PROS: Very easy setup.
It can even play Playstation 1 games! Anyone with a PS2 using component cables knows that you can't play your PS2 library through the cables. The Component to VGA converter allows PS1 games to be played through component just fine. Note that I set the motion detecting to maximum, since I read somewhere that you have to do that on the similar HD Box Pro to get them to work. (For those who don't know, PS1 over component has a strange effect where the image is rolling up, I suspect the motion detecting holds the picture still)
Be sure to use the auto adjust feature on your TV/monitor, it makes the picture fit better!
Best of all, I have noticed no lag or glitches in the picture with this device. If you are unsatisfied with how your Playstation 2 games look, would like to play Playstat
PROS: Is far better than the upscaler built into my TV.
It allows you to play your playstation one games through component cables! (At least, with motion detecting set at the maximum)
No noticeable lag.
CONS: The up and down buttons appear to function backwards. Up is down, and down is up. It's not really a problem though.
Works great with all the dvd players, xbox, wii and other component devices I used it with. Plug and play, no setup needed.
PROS: Good picture
Easy to use
Picture looks great! I have the Wii set at 480p, I left the screen at 4:3 though to not warp the picture.
PROS: - Easy to use/setup
CONS: - No Power button, have to unplug AC adapter manually
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.
PROS: • Easy to Use
• 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.
The usual Monoprice deal - low cost, great quality.
PROS: It just works - no goofyness

PROS: - Everything you need to convert your component signal to VGA
- Simple setup
- Automatic resolution detection - no menu access required!
CONS: - Not a whole lot of documentation.
PROS: Amazingly small and convenient size.
Gives the option to view component signal 3 ways: something like 4:3 16:9 or Full and does a wonderful job of scaling.
Menu options give you all you might need to tweek image but it probably won't be necessary since it displays so nicely.
The 3.5mm audio in and out are convenient.
CONS: The button scheme/configuration could be revised slightly.
Sometimes holding the button 3 seconds to switch between VGA and component can be annoying.
I suppose it makes sense that the 3.5mm audio ins and outs only work when it is in component mode but sometimes I wish they worked all the time.
Also, an on/off switch would be nice.
