"Does what it's supposed to - but clips whites at high end"3.0 starson by ender21
Pros: Full 1080p just as desired
Cons: Clips whites at high end, only 2-channel audio
Summary: Audio through HDMI was a throw-in as I thought it'd be video only converted to HDMI. However, the bad side is that it runs the video so hot that I'd say the upper 10% of whites in any video signal is completely clipped. No amount of adjusting Brightness/Contrast on any portion of my home theater setup could correct it. It's still usable and I love the HDMI simplicit and the visible improvement I see on my screen, I may go back to component cables.
But to say this is "useless" is a bad review.
