Scart to HDMI Converter

Post by Sausageinabun » Mon Nov 13, 2017 8:35 am

I bought one of these at the end of last week and it arrived late Saturday. What with the recapping I didn't get around to plugging it in until late yesterday, and wow, call me impressed!!

This little box is excellent, especially given the price.

I was, up until now, using a scaler, (GBS-8220) to give me VGA output, but the quality on this little box is IMHO far superior.

I am so happy with it, that I've ordered a further two.

I have one of these. They look good when playing games but, and it's a big but, there are a lot of artefacts when you use the desktop.

The menu items pop and the edge colours lag the centre of the highlighted menu item. There's also a large lag, which can make mouse pointing (and game playing) a problem. You can test these issues by going to the desktop and select the 'File' menu and move the mouse rapidly up and down. You can also see some artefacts if you open the "About" dialog and wiggle the mouse along the bottom border.
