Yes, I would recommend this product
Overall I'm very satisfied with this product. Though it did take a little while to get the hang of. I will if you plan to switch it from television to television you will have to adjust the settings for the screen. But overall great pick once a movie or TV show is playing.
Pros:streaming video

Good Product But Known Issue With Dell Laptops

PostedApril 21, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
This product has worked for the month I have owned it, and it's worked great. Took a little getting used to, but now that I've figured out the settings, I love it! However, the other day it stopped transferring the picture. I went to startech.com to see if I needed new drivers. They don't have any. After searching any known issues, startech.com lists that the vga cable shipped with the product has known issues with Dell laptop's. They don't have a fix for it, other than the customer purchasing a new and separate vga cable. The cable is only around $10.00 and you can get them any where now-a-days, but it would be nice if Dell would not sell a product that didn't' work with their products, with no fix available.
Bottom line: If your looking for an inexpensive way to watch movies and webTV on your TV through your laptop, this product will work great! Just be ready to purchase an additional VGA cable, even though one comes with this product. Also be aware this product does not come with anything to get the audio from your laptop to the TV.
Pros:streaming video, at home

I'm a professional Video Deejay, not for pros.

PostedApril 6, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
I didn't like the over all performance of this product. It will do the job ( as a back up.) Ok, so, I go from a macbook pro (mini display) to vga (via apple connector) to this, one thing I do like is you have a vga output as well as the composite, which is perfect picture. I use the vga out for my Eiki projector and my composite for a T.V. the over all picture of the composite/s-video isn't as great, but will do the job, again, as a back up. I now go mini display to hdmi via gefen connector and looks great!

Yes, I would recommend this product
Pros
This unit is very professional for the price, does what it is suppose to do. It is small which is good, saves room, which we all need. Instructions are easy to understand. I would recommend this unit.
Cons
There is really nothing bad to say. I use it for Karaoke with my laptop, and if you need something economical, this is it.
Pros:karoke shows
