Yeah, there is a bar, it's about a foot wide on my set. My coarse setting is eight inches from the left. I guess it would look like this:
0 (--------/----) 100

I don't own any of the PS2 games you've mentioned, like HSG, but I have tested it with Gradius V and Castlevania SotN (both using PS2-Component), and several SNES games, including Super Metroid and Street Fighter 2 (both with S-Video). I experienced noticable lag with these games before, they were unplayable. Now with the XRGB, the lag is gone and the picture is somewhat improved, particularly using the component-to-D terminal hook up.
The instruction manual is in japanese, so it didn;t help, but all the on-screen options are in english (with heavy use of acronyms). It includes component adapters for the D-terminal and scart(?) inputs on the front. It has standard composite and S-video inputs on the back. There is a VGA input on the back, so you can use it as pass-through when using it with a computer. Also included: a VGA cable, several audio adapters, and a small remote.
The XRGB is small, depth is almost the same as a DVD case and is about as thick as an average hard cover book. The unit is light, I don't think it can take much abuse.
The remote is a "credit card" type and is a total piece of s***. It barely works, the power button will turn the unit on, but it would not turn it off. I have a learning remote, so I programmed all the XRGB functions to that. I have a feeling the stock remote won't last for long. Fortunately, you don't need the remote to work the unit, the buttons on the front cover all your needs.
I'm very pleased with the XRGB. I bought it to eliminate lag, so picture improvements are the icing on the cake. My only concern is build quality, but if you
don't rough it up,it should be fine. The cost may seem steep, but if you play a lot of classic games, it's definitely worth it.
