| There's also this one that seems to be nice:|
I don't have one (yet) but the reviews are pretty positive. Review links are on the site...
I currently have the Redant Sagestar VGA Box and would like to strongly advise people to avoid it. Even with extensive fiddling with the contrast and brightness controls both on the VGA Box and the monitor itself i was still unable to get a very useable picture.
It was blurry and colour was so weak it might as well have been a old B&W movie!
I also tried using Svideo input through my ATI Radeon 9800SE card and this was actually quite impressive picture quality was far clearer than with the dedicated VGA Box and colours were much stronger. Of course it was only running at standard TV resolution but still was impressive despite this.
The VGA box mentioned there looks very impressive and i am glad to see it offers true HDTV resolution to make use of the monitors improved display quality.
I think i would be quite interested in getting one but since the site is US based and i am in the UK im not sure if i will be able to get one. Will they ship to the UK and has anyone else in the UK managed to get this VGA Box. What sort of shipping costs am i likely to have to pay?
Another thing; will UK PAL games support the 480P and beyond display modes needed to use this VGA box or is it only US software that supports this?
Sorry for all the questions hope someone can help me out
many thanks in advance
