Really need a VGA switch, any suggestions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a vga switch to use with my projector. I'd like to be able to plug both my xbox and my computer in through the VGA port. I've been shopping around and have had a hard time finding any reviews or experience with these things. I was looking at the Linxcel 4-Port SVGA VGA ELECTRONIC Monitor Switch on monoprice which seems to be good, but it's so cheap that it makes me nervous. Everthing else I've found (that supports high res) is $70 and up. Has anyone actually tried using this on, or have any other suggestions. Please I want suggestions from people who have actually seen results. -Thanks

I had good luck using a transcoder. Some are expensive ($300-$500), others are not. I was able to find one for about $70. I first bought the transcoder to change a component signal from my DVD player to a VGA input on my projector. After a new projector, I used it to change the VGA output of my computer to the component input on my projector.

I now have a new HTPC with component output, so I am not using the transcoder. If your interested in it for a good price, just PM. I was going to list it on the market here tomorrow.
