I bought this for streaming video from an old laptop to my TV. The s-video on the laptop is pretty far from the headphone jack, but the cables separated easily until they could reach. Picture and sound transmission are crisp and clear. Wires are a bit thicker than I expected, but no big deal.
PROS: I liked how easily the cable separated so that I could connect to both the svideo and audio ports which my laptop manufacture thought to place on opposite sides. Quality of video/audio seems to carry well from the computer to the screen.
High quality, discount pricing. Ordered this cable to hook up my laptop to my 20 inch Phillips tv. TV only had RCA inputs. Sony VAIO laptop had s video output(4 pin) and VGA output. Worked instantly upon first connecting. Adjusted resolution. I use this cable to watch netflix on my TV, since i don't have TV service. The only thing to be aware is that s video connection is good for videos, movies, etc. But i wouldn't recommend using this for reading text. VGA would be a better option for this, or even hdmi. Depending on the type of tv you have. I am happy thus far.
PROS: High quality, thick insulation, thick wire gauge. Fixed my problem, easy to use/ set up. Cheap price. I love it!
CONS: 3.5 mm end was short, wouldn't reach head phone jack on my laptop. S video on my laptop is one side, while headphone jack is on the other side. No problem bought an extension and that fixed my problem.
I bought this cable in order to connect my 13' inch macbook to my standard television using a Apple DVI to Video Adapter which requires a S video cable to connect for video on your tv. And this worked like a charm. The 3.5mm jack is great and reaches the headphone jack on the macbook with a lil maneuvering, allowing you to not need separate speakers or use the macbook's weak speakers.
