I just found this, and it works like they advertise then it kicks ass. Supposedly it will work like the Hanzo box released several years ago. Anyway, I got one on the way and I'll let you guys know how it turns out when I get it.

I've found old auctions like this as well so I think he sells them in batches of three at a time, so don't sweat if you miss out just keep checking his listings.

Interesting. I'm especially curious if it works with Bangai-O.

I just bought one, because I actually need a new VGA box anyway, so I might as well get this one. I'll post when I get it and try it out.

Got mine in today, but I can't use it because my TV doesn't have a VGA port and PC monitors have the same damn plug as the cable. Disappointed, but instead of hunting down an adapter I think I'm going to go for one of these instead:

Yea that was the adapter I was talking about. I can probably get one at radio shack, but I just haven't had time to stop by there.

I have that VGA cable and it works great and looks better than my old blaze vga box. I also highly recommend that seller's Saturn and MD RGB cables. Top notch quality.

I can say that the build quality is top notch on this cable.

For those interested in a Hanzo, here's a rundown I put out today. The Hanzo can switch between RGB and VGA for games that aren't 100% compatible.

his saturn and md scart cables are c-sync and I heard you need sync on luma cables for those systems?

I like everything about this unit except for the cheap (micro) switches. A few products/household that use similar switches have failed over time. I wonder if it's possible to request the company to replace the switches for something that is much more sturdier.
