Got the fat ps2 connected thru Sony/PS3 brand component cables and the picture is excellent both 480i/480p. Syphon Filter Dark Mirror is excellent. The Xbox cables were shipped yesterday I expect a similar result.
The dreamcast VGA cable didn't work at all on any monitor I tried. The vendor said I can exchange it. In the meantime ordered an S-video cable.
The Gamecube over s-video is much better than composite and comparable to Wii/component believe it or not, tho still not near tube quality, but good enough. Not going to spend $50-$100 on gamecube component cables, might as well get another Wii/component in that case.
Don't think I need to get that Gefen TV Scaler Pro external scaler for $699 after all, at least will wait till reviews of it come in.
I just realized that since i'm using the S3000 as a computer monitor that I should try streaming Netflix movies to it ... will report back on my experience. From what I read on the site streaming movies is free as part of my monthly membership (2 movie plan), so if they look decent enough can't beat all you can watch free movies. For movies I really want to watch will still get those on blu-ray tho and watch on the bigger screen.
