Customer Review: Don't Buy This
Straight up do not waste your money on this product. I bought the Video Game Jockey in order to play my XBox 360 on a computer monitor, and the quality was absolutely terrible. Furthermore, the audio/visual lag was still a problem. Afterward, I bought a cable made by XBox that plugs into the console and goes to VGA. This cable works beautifully and preserves picture quality very well. It also helped to eliminate A/V lag. You should be able to buy the cable at any Best Buy or large electronics store.
Customer Review: Turn your monitor into a video game TV!
I don't have enough space in my dorm room for a TV, but the gamer in me told me I couldn't live without my Wii or my PS2. So I bought this product and it has made life a whole lot easier. I have a Compaq monitor from 1998, and I can play video games well on it. The complaints come from people who are playing games with very high quality graphics, granted this product doesn't produce a perfect picture it is hardly noticeable to me. (It depends on the quality of the monitor) I notice that the sound produced was sort of scratchy on my old speakers, but when I tried my newer, nicer speakers, the sound was perfect.
I am able to instantly switch from my game to my computer's desktop, so there's no set up trouble each time you want to play a game. It will hook up to anything that has RCA cables. A VGA cable is included for you to connect to it. If you are in a situation where there is no TV, this is a great thing to have, to be able to turn your computer's monitor into a TV!
