    I bought this to be able to use my non-HD TV as a second monitor so I could watch movies on a larger screen from my couch. This works perfectly. I have a DVI-I output on my PC, which I had to convert to VGA with this DVI-I Male to VGA Female Adapter. Then I used the VGA-to-VGA cord that came with this to connect the VGA to the converter, and a cable like this Cables To Go Value Series S-Video Cable (25 feet) that I already had, from the converter to the TV. I was freaking out until I remembered to plug the converter power cord into an empty usb port. I had a flipping screen image at first, but flipped the tiny, white switches until the picture was clear. I was in business!
    The product was shipped quickly and in good condition. I would recommend it for this use. The picture is close to perfect with very little interference, which the instruction booklet says can be caused by too little power or too many electronics in the vicinity, whatever that means.

    Once you have this hooked up you need to reboot your computer or it won’t recognize the TV as a monitor. I was about to toss this across the room after hooking it up to two TV’s and switching wires 4 or 5 times. Once the laptop rebooted, worked great.

    I got this unit today, plugged in the necessary wires and connections, set the dip switch to NTSC and started watching my computer screen on my analog tv (Sharp 27F543 tv with Macbook 13″ v. 7,5).The picture quality was VERY disappointing. Very blurry and bad contrast and color depth. I tried adjusting the controls in the converter. Some change, but still unacceptable picture quality. Some folks might actually find the picture acceptable. I found it very annoying. I packed up the converter and wires and was going to return it to Amazon and write a one or two star review.

    Then I got the idea of playing with the computer’s display settings and gave it one last chance. Here’s what I found. My Macbook automatically set the display to 800×600 at 60hz and standard “VGA Display” color profile the moment the Apple adapter is hooked up. The instructions that came with the converter were no help in trying to tweak the computer’s settings to get the best picture. Seems that anything but standard “VGA Display” worked much better, giving much better contrast and color depth, and the blurry picture became much better as well. I then used the converter’s controls to fine tune the picture. Now it’s VERY acceptable. Same picture quality as with my older Macbook (v. 5,5) with Apple’s mini-dvi to rca/s-video adapter.
