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.

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.
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: 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.
Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear PID 8668 no longer suits your needs. We do offer a 30 day return policy as well as a one year warranty on this item. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a return. Please let me know if you would like to continue with an RMA. Thank you.
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: 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: 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
