I have been contemplating buying this product for a couple of months, reading various reviews and finding faults from other reviews and deciding if I should drop $40 on it. Let me say I was extremely happy with my decision! I have a 21.5" Lenovo monitor that runs a standard 1920x1080 resolution, and the picture is perfect! The quality is not that of an HDMI cable to an LCD telivision, but it is definitely 720p. The setup was easy, all I did was plug in it into the xbox and hook it up to my monitor and I was up and running! Also, the two audio plugs "break off" from the vga output of the cable to allow a couple feet of separation between the video and audio outputs (I didn't need to utilize this feature but it was nevertheless something noteworthy). Another note about the audio outputs is that the product comes with an adapter to combine the 2 audio outputs into one for convenient use on a 1-input type speaker(I almost lost it when I opened the box - be careful!). This is a must have for anybody wishing to turn their computer monitor into a hi-def screen for their xbox! PROS: Easy setup, no fidgeting with settings required. High quality build and picture, plus an updated look to match my xbox 360 (the one you will find in the store matches the theme of the latest versions of the 360). Plenty of length if you want to keep your xbox a decent length away from your monitor, and split audio/vga output cables. CONS: Price. I did not experiment with some of the cheaper $5 versions on Amazon, but this is a high quality product and is definitely worth it for a guaranteed crisp picture! SIDE NOTE: If you are planning on connecting your Xbox to the monitor you are currently using for your laptop, I highly recommend a KVM switch to quickly swap between monitor inputs with a click of a button, instead of changing the wires out every time!! I hope this helps!
yes: I recommend this product
