Summary: I have needed this for so long! I had tried cables to connect my laptop to tv but it never worked. I didn't realize that I needed a converter box. I didn't read any of the instructions, just plugged this up and it works great. Even comes with an S video cable. I am currently running it to an older 27" tv with the S-video and the picture looks fine. Haven't tried it on my big screen yet.
Summary: If you want to hook your computer/laptop to an analog TV this is what you want. You will need something to hook up your audio similar to a "Belkin Y Audio Cable" ([...]) from your headphone jack unless you plan to use your own computer/laptop speakers. For a digital TV you will need something like the "Component video (YPbPr)/VGA To HDMI Converter With Auto Up-scale" ([...]) or you won't be happy with the picture quality.
Summary: This Is An Ideal Product To Use With A Program Called Just Karaoke. You Can Load 140,000 Karaoke Songs Into A Lap Top Computer.Find Any Song And Send To A TV Screen By Using this Sabrent Converter. It Is Very Cheap And Easy To Set Up. The only Problem Is The Instruction Manual. It Is Tiny And Very Difficult To Read Without A Magnifier. I Will Order Another For A Backup. Amazo Is Great To Do Business With.
Summary: This very compact unit does the job of converting from VGA to S-video. It's small enough to be considered portable. The quality is as you would expect for standard definition television. It has an internal test pattern generator (color bars) during initialization. As noted by others, it ships with the dipswitches set for PAL rather than NTSC which is needed in the US. The documentation does not really say which position is physically on and which is off.
