Pros Very basic conversion - simple
Cons No S-Video in/out feature
Summary The majority of people are buying converters for emergencies. The time that snow, floods, or solar storms knock out our cable or dish TV. The majority of our TV have S-Video (along with Channel 3).
Realize that TV stations will start using smaller fonts and displays. At this point, in an emergency we need the most clear video possible. S-Video is not great, but it sure beats the channel 3 input format.
This feature does not cost that much more (if any more) judging from the price of relative products.
Keep shopping and as a minimum - find a product with s-video or better features.
