"Will fail to meet your needs in an emergency"0.5 starson by Rx_
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.
