    • Converts Component to VGA ! ("Comp 2 VGA" )
      "Comp 2 VGA" is a way to display component (the single yellow RCA-jack input)to the 15 pin "D-sub" VGA input on your monitor. This is in case you don't have a "component in" available on your monitor, but you do have an extra VGA. Component video is the worst - and this thing takes it and converts it, so the picture's going to be even worse than if you could plug right into a component input... but you don't have a component-in available, or you wouldn't be looking for this thing.

      Just to make things more interesting, there is a VGA to DVI adaptor made that costs just a few more dollars (5 or so) in case you only have a DVI input available and you want to display your device's component video on your DVI monitor. I have an old computer that plugs into a new monitor's second DVI input that way (the first DVI input has a modern computer on it.) So I'm pretty sure you could use this thing with the VGA-into-DVI adaptor to show component video on a monitor's available DVI-in port. ...more info
    • Turn your monitor into a video game TV!
      I don't have enough space in my dorm room for a TV, but the gamer in me told me I couldn't live without my Wii or my PS2. So I bought this product and it has made life a whole lot easier. I have a Compaq monitor from 1998, and I can play video games well on it. The complaints come from people who are playing games with very high quality graphics, granted this product doesn't produce a perfect picture it is hardly noticeable to me. (It depends on the quality of the monitor) I notice that the sound produced was sort of scratchy on my old speakers, but when I tried my newer, nicer speakers, the sound was perfect.

      I am able to instantly switch from my game to my computer's desktop, so there's no set up trouble each time you want to play a game. It will hook up to anything that has RCA cables. A VGA cable is included for you to connect to it. If you are in a situation where there is no TV, this is a great thing to have, to be able to turn your computer's monitor into a TV! ...more info
    • Game Jockey
      The Jockey is somewhat "cheap" in that it feels like it will break any moment. Besides this, it works well, although my computer monitar has lines that run down it because of the Jockey....more info
    • Did not work very well
      The only way I could make it work was to hold the S-video/component switch halfway in. Other than that it seemed to work fine! Seriously, though holding the switch is not acceptable. I returned this item....more info
    • Don't Buy This
      Straight up do not waste your money on this product. I bought the Video Game Jockey in order to play my XBox 360 on a computer monitor, and the quality was absolutely terrible. Furthermore, the audio/visual lag was still a problem. Afterward, I bought a cable made by XBox that plugs into the console and goes to VGA. This cable works beautifully and preserves picture quality very well. It also helped to eliminate A/V lag. You should be able to buy the cable at any Best Buy or large electronics store. ...more info

    • It's just OK...not perfect
      It works...but the quality is not too good. The video is bit fuzzy and the sound has a bit of a hissing sound in the background. Its just a simple box that gets the job done...just don't expect too much from it....more info
    • video game jockey
      Works great...video resolution not as good when run through the game jockey as when run straight out of computer to monitor, but a negligible difference. Highly recommended for its simplicity and price. ...more info
    • Makes My Super NES Playable Again On My LCD TV
      The good thing about using this device is that I can now play my U.S. Super NES, as well as several other game systems like my TV Games units, on my flatscreen LCD TV through its PC monitor port without having the game screen suffering problems when I power up. However, if one's buying this in the hopes that it may serve as a PAL-to-NTSC converter, like I did when I tried to get my PAL-compatible Super NES to run on my flatscreen TV and monitor, it won't work....more info
    • True to its Name
      I dont know why people say this product is bad. This product is really great. I got it yesterday and hooked it up to my 24 inch windows vista lcd screen. The instructions are easy to follow and you should do it in no time. I played my ps2 on it and it is great. It works fine and you can adjust the brightness and screen to your game experience. I would use a s video ps2 cable though, but the composite video cable is still good. People probably misjudged this item because their computer could'nt handle the game jockey. Your computer should be windows and have all the vga slots nessessary. The graphics depend on your computer and if your computer has a graphic card, it should work great. This item is the best vga converter and it is truly a video game jockey. You can get it for a very good bargain at amazon. GREAT ITEM...more info
    • Does exactly what it says it will do, this is not a HD converter
      Thankfully this product worked instantly out of the box. I was also relieved that there are position adjustments, so that an off center image can be centered by this box and the monitor. Some boxes force you to only use the monitor to adjust the image, which is not a great solution.

      The image quality is a little bit weak when using the RCA jack, but that is to be expected. I always use component connections for my PS2, so it was a bit jarring to get thrown back to the bad RCA connection.

      Edit - Now that I am using an S-video cable there is significant improvement over the picture quality. I would have much preferred component cables connections, however given that this is not a true HD converter, and the low cost, it is somewhat understandable.

      An excellent, dependable, small and functional unit.
