I dunno anything about the technical aspect of this adapter, but I am familiar with the technical aspects of the xbox video system. With that said, the company that makes this adapter seems shady to me. They claim in the description that it works for 1.6 xbox, but these versions can't do VGA, so unless there is some kind of alien tech in these things, or horrible up-scaling/de-interlacing, that throws up a red flag for me.

It looks like a composite to VGA converter, just like an external converter but missing out the Xbox composite cable. Even on a 1.0-1.5 Xbox that's the only way it could work as described, because you need a modded Xbox with a custom BIOS to output VGA, and the description doesn't mention modding at all.

I'd try it on a 1.0-1.5 Xbox just to check, and with a different VGA monitor (it could be a resolution mismatch between the monitor and the VGA converter). If it still isn't working it's probably faulty, plain and simple.
