    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.

    What is the latency of this converter? Looking to use my PC to emulate games on a CRT component TV and I want low latency.
    A shopper on Sep 29, 2017
    If I feed 480p as input and set 480p output will there be an input lag greater than 1ms? I say greater than 1ms because I don't want an answer simply stating your extending the length of video signal by 12inches.
    A shopper on Jul 26, 2017
    If the resolution output through the VGA connector is lower than 480p or is interlaced, does this adapter still convert it to component?

    Does as advertised...but poorly.
    If you don't care about video quality and don't mind the offset and limited resolution then this product is for you. Professionals should avoid it however.

    PROS: Low cost. Metal case. Simple setup.

    CONS: Only supports a couple of resolutions, oddly HD resolution on the PC desktop (1280x720) isn't one of them! Has horizontal offset to the left of about 80-100 pixels of black with a green line in the middle from top to bottom of the picture. Video hue is WAY off - won't reproduce SMPTE color bars properly. You can see the offset and green line problem in the YouTube Video link I provide. Both converters did this.

    Ok if you don't want to send it and HD VGA Resolution
    Make a box that can accept a Native HD resolution via VGA, and output said resolution to RGB video. Why is that such a difficult concept? Mine is going back because it's useless.

    PROS: Price. Monoprice service.

    CONS: Will not accept a HD resolution. The native resolution of this thing is 1024 x 768. It won't accept an input of anything higher 1280 x 1024. None of these resolutions are a wide screen format or HD. To me, that makes NO sense, because component resolution is 1280 x 720.

    Works great
    We have 2 VGA ports we needed to connect to a HDTV but only one VGA on the TV. This converter box works perfectly to connect our PC to the Component connection of the TV.

    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!

    CONS: Made the picture blue

    Response from Monoprice

    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!

    Using Projection TV as monitor
    I bought this unit to replace and old analog version and the quality is night and day. The digital quality is excellent and certainly much cheaper than a monitor. Well worth the investment.

    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.

    Well Made Product
    Product was not what I needed but that my was my fault. Without using the product I cannot review how it works, however, it seems very well put together, feels tough and able to handle some rough handling. The composite cables that were included seemed a bit short, but that trivial.

    Works great
    I'm using this to convert the VGA out of a security DVR to component video for distribution to TVs. A previous VGA to component converter did not work because it wouldn't scale the picture also. This worked almost right away. I wish the manual did a better job explaining what the buttons did and/or how to change settings but you can just hook it up and start pressing to figure it out I guess.

    PROS: Works easily

    Scaler and converter

    CONS: Needs better instructions.

    Workmanship and Functionality
    This converter works absolutely fine. I set it up between my old 65 inch screen tv and my Dell laptop and playstation 3. I am now able to work with both units switching back and forth as desired. Picture is clear so the connectors are superior and streaming movies, using Netflix or using a DVD in either the laptop or the playstation is drama free. The only thing I need now is an audio cable of equal length as the 25 ft. VGA cable. The present audio cable is only 6 ft. so I have to leave the laptop sitting next to the converter with the audio cable going through the converter and into the tv. Sound is great so the converter is on point. With a 25 ft. audio cable I can sit the laptop next to my lounge chair. Good idea to anticipate your viewing distance requirement.

    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.

    Works well
    I've had a hard time getting my nVidia card to output to component, I had a box (probably from the same manufacturer as this one) but it stopped working one day. Now I'm thinking maybe it never worked right because it didn't display on screen text with the mode (480, 720, 1080i), which is a nice feature. I felt with my other one I was just blindly pressing the Mode and SD/HD buttons continuously without knowing what was happening.

    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.
