Pros

Successfully allows analog composite input to a VGA digital monitor
Cons
No upscaling.
Summary
I used it to connect a pre-internet TI-99/4A Home Computer (1981)to a modern LCD monitor.

Computers of this era did not output an interlaced signal, and most low priced converters, expecting a video game console's interlaced signal, have trouble interpreting progressive input. This result in the colorburst signal being mis-interpreted and a B&W picture with severe vertical banding.

The Startech device has no such difficulty, and colors come through fine.

Unfortunately because it still tries to de-interlace the image, the result is VERY muddy. Additionally, since it does not provide upscaling to modern resolutions, it forces the LCD to do all the work, scaling the 256x192 resolution to the closest available (640x480), well below the ideal resolution of the monitor. This further distorts picture quality.

To be fair, upscaling converters (such as the XRGB) cost several hundred dollars, so Startech unit performs as can be expected in the price range in which it sells.

Also, since this will likely be used to plug a SNES era machine to an LCD monitor, the results should be very good.

My only REAL complaint is the audio pass-through. Pass-through should be "PASS-THROUGH" with no audio quality loss. Not the case here. I highly recommend bypassing the audio on this device for a direct connection to your sound system or speakers.

You won't get the pristine image quality of an XRGB converter, but the Startech device performs acceptably for it's low price point.
