    Simple hookup, works great, does the job!

    This cable does exactly what it is meant to do. It hooks your Xbox 360 up to a computer monitor. Monitors are cheaper than TV's, so this cable is great. Plus, monitors have had higher resolutions than TV's for a while, and have been used for gaming, so they are perfect for use with the 360. Hooking it up is just as simple as any other Xbox cable, just plug into the console, plug it into the monitor, and hook up the sound. Some people have complained that the audio cables are not long enough, but I would have to say they are wrong. Sure, if your monitor isn't by your sound system then yes you will need an extension, but how is that different from any other cable you get for anything else? Cables that are sold together are normally the same length, and this cable is no exception. It is not the manufacturers job to figure out how far apart people will put their stuff. They make it so that it works they way it should and does its job. Then it is your job to either place the components close enough together, or get an extension. That is why extensions are made. But, that is not a flaw or problem with this cable. That is just normal equipment placement and setup. Anyway, the cables do the job they were made for. Modern Warfare 2, Forza Motorsport 3, and every other game I have played all look fantastic, and the sound is great too.

    Bargain? That's Right!

    The VGA HD Cable for 360 makes it easy for everyone to enjoy HD quality graphic. By letting you connect your 360 on to a normal PC monitor, it’s an excellent choice for students and household who don't have the extra cash to purchase a HDTV and it saves you a huge amount of money. Not only it supports 8 kinds of resolution which includes 480p (640 x 480), HDTV: 720p (1280 x 720/1366 x 768), HDTV: 1080p (1920 x 1080). Along with the package, it comes with a VGA to VGA converter (making it able to connect on an older PC monitor) & a stereo RCA audio converter (making it easy to hook up the audio through any kinds of PC sound card/Speaker). The VGA HD Cable also changes your 360 into a powerful DVD player with the ability to upscale normal 480p DVD to 1080p resolution. The whole package is just a hard to beat bargain, a must buy for a 360 owner.

    Need to check if your TV can work with it

    Y recently purchased an INSIGNIA 42" 1080P HDTV(see my review on that one!) and decided to purchase this cable (being my XBOX360 an earlier version with no HDMI output) in order to get 1080P for my HD-DVD's y video games...well... set-up was quick, yex.. but did not work with the TV!.. I kept getting only about 75% of my screen space when I would configure it to 1080p.. i tried it many ways and the only resolution in which it could be configured was 720p.. so, it took this cable out and put the component cables that came with the system..guess what??!!... the component cables give you 1080P for videogames(one that offer it of course) & 1080i for HD-DVD. I am going to wait for the MAD CATZ gadget that serves as an HDMI converter for the 360(seems high pruce though) and depending on it's reviews I might get it. I took the vga cable back to the store, so be careful before you buy

    amazing on my Samsung LNT4071F

    I purchased this with high expectations and it has met them. Alot of people complain about the washed out affect that these cables can produce. Those are the people that didn't know how to adjust the settings to get the proper look for their TV. Having a older XBOX 360 i didn't have the HDMI option so this was the alternative. I was having issues with my picture through the component inputs while watching HD DVD's through my XBOX 360. all the issues have dissappeared but for those who dont know, there is video options within the XBOX dashboard that you can play with as well. I had to adjust both to get the right picture for my TV. Also for those of you who dont know VGA and HDMI are usually the only way to get true 1080p resolution. So i give the product 5 stars the picture is alot sharper now.

    This cable is a must if you're in the following situation: - You have a nice LCD for your computer (In my case, 25" with only HDMI Input & VGA) - You have an older generation XBox360 without HDMI out. - You bought a cheap-o VGA Cable on some online auction and found that it sucks (Yes, this happened to me. Washed out colors, fading, makes it look like low-res. FAKE optical out. Wasted $12.) Personally, I do not notice much of a difference between this and a Component output. I have a 47" LCD TV in which I used the Component, but I decided I would buy a smaller LCD for a 'gaming' monitor. I'm not too familiar with HD, but I do get the full 1080 resolution from this cable (so says the settings on the Xbox). Everything looks beautiful on my 25". In the end, shell out the dough for this one. Don't buy an imitation online.

    Stick With Component

    I was pretty unimpressed with this cord. I originally bought it for use with my PC monitor, but it didn't look as nice as I expected, so I stopped using it. I have since bought a plasma HDTV, and decided to compare this cable with the regular component cables. If you have a choice, I say stick witht he component set. Not only are these expensive, but I actually prefer the component's picture. The component set that comes with your Xbox is completely capable of displaying High Definition resolutions, so this is only necessary if you are playing on a monitor with only VGA input or with funky resolutions. The picture may be SLIGHTLY more crisp than the component cables, but I found the colors to be washed out. With the component cables, the colors were much brighter and more saturated. I don't recommend this.

    Great adapter

    JBishop

    I got this with the intention of putting the vga input on my monitor (19" wide scree, 1440x900 resolution) to good use. The problem i had was how i would use the computer speakers, which only use the 1/8" jacks, rather than RCA or optical. BE WARNED, this device came with an adapter to convert RCA to 1/8" male. I didnt know this before purchasing and got one on my own before hand. Total waste of $3 that I'll probably find use for somewhere else anyway. It also includes a VGA female-female adapter so you can connect two cables together. Setup is simple, just plug it in and adjust the video settings for your monitor's max resolution. I've really just run it with Halo Wars and it just looks amazing.

    Must have for HD Quality or PC Monitor Use

    CJohnson

    Just another positive review like all the reviews below. I bought this cable as an open box buy for $10 cheaper and it works excellent. XBOX settings are set to 1080p resolution and on my 56" Samsung DLP television the quality is an amazing difference over composite/s-video connections. Detail is much much better and the text/fonts are no longer blurry. Also I didn't know til' I bought this, but you can use this cable to connect to your regular LCD computer monitor and get HD quality as well. Cheap alternative for those who think they have to buy and HD LCD TV for their XBOX. This cable rocks especially since I don't have the Elite XBOX with HDMI.

    Simply Great

    MrSnowman

    THIS PRODUCT IS WONDERFUL! I bought this cable to use my XBOX 360 on my new Samsung 32" 720P HD LCD and what a difference it has made. I bought an upconverter DVD player and I don't know if I got a bad Samsung 1080P upconvert or if the technology is a joke, but the XBOX 360 cable really brought up the detail and clarity on my LCD TV. The only thing I can't figure is why when it is set to the same res as my TV, there is a small gap on the left and right that remains black. Not really noticeable if you weren't looking for it. Love this product, if you have an LCD, get this cable.

    Fantasic quality cable

    Rybo

    This cable is exactly what I needed. If you are short on space, have a great PC monitor and not-so great tv, and are looking to consolidate your 360 and PC onto one screen, THIS IS PERFECT. Now I have perfect picture for both on my 22" LCD. It's amazingly convenient. The cable package includes a vga gender changer, and also a RCA to stereo converter for the audio cables, allowing it plug right into my computer speakers! Now the 360 and PC share speakers as well as a screen...TOO EASY.

    Great Connector

    Jarhead

    This cable is perfect for connecting to your PC monitor in HD. It has a adapter for the audio to hook up to your computer speakers if needed. It is perfect for online play if your computer is away from a TV and you don't have a wireless connection. You can just run the ethernet cable easily to ur Xbox 360 since your using the computer moniter.This cable is also great for a HDTV if it has a VGA hook up.

    Works Great

    Juggy

    I bought this because my dorm room was super small, and i didn't have room for t.vs and all my other junk, Plus i'm super lazy and its one less thing for me to carry, anyway. It works great because i can play on my computer monitor and get great refresh rates and picture quality, however it sux because it can't do 1080p. I only recommend this if you want something more universal, aka. HDTVs and Monitors.

    better than component

    Posted
    Crazycow

    I use this on my 19' wide screen westinghouse lcd tv. it works better than the standard component HD cables on this TV. The nice thing about using this cable is that you do not have to touch the color settings on the tv. they are preset, and they look great! Picture quality is very similar to component cables, but it seems to be a little sharper on movements. Great product.

    1080p without HDMI

    Posted
    ra99gt

    As other reviews have mentioned, this is the only way to output 1080p (1920 x 1080) to an HDTV without an HDMI connection. You can upscale your DVD's to 1080p and see HD-DVD's in 1080p, as the Xbox will not display them at 1080p over a component cable. I think over component the resolution is 480p for DVD's and 1080i for HD-DVD.

    Computer Monitor + xbox 360

    The717

    The picture on the computer monitor is as close to HD as you can get, especially if you have a wide screen. The xbox has built-in controls that allow you to adjust the resolution to perfectly fit the size of your monitor. Although the cord is thick, it is well worth buying if you want to use a computer monitor as a screen.

    Has a great HD picture, even on the smaller sets. Cable isn't the longest, but still works great. Any TV or computer monitor with VGA input works great. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a amazing xbox picture!

    This is a must own for anyone who wishes to play their Xbox 360 on a LCD monitor. Great quality in the making of the cables. The cable itself is a little on the short side but it doesn't affect me as much anymore.

    Don't worry about buying a DVI or RCA converter it's included in the box.
