        This cable is meant to be used to connect a COMPONENT signal (i.e., from a DVD player) to a VGA monitor (i.e., a computer monitor). It does NOT convert a VGA output (computer) to a component signal (for a TV). Please read the fricking instructions before buying it!

          I have been using computers and multimedia electronics long before most current users were born. I do not find it difficult to follow directions nor trouble-shoot apparent problems. However, this product fails to deliver signal from any component video source to CRT or flat screen monitors I connect with it.

                So many people are giving bad reveiews from trying to use this cable for purposes that it is not intended for. I use this cable to hook my Blu-Ray player to my projector using the VGA in. It works perfectly and I am loving the 150" Blu-Ray movies! :)

                    This cable did not work when I plugged it into my computer to my HDTV to use as a monitor. I used it on two computers and two different monitors. I noticed a pin missing on the VGA side. Sending cable back to Radio shack to get another one. Hopefully a new one will work.

                    Minaly this is tank ypou for those to cleared this up, that its for using a PC Monitor to VIEW what ever Componet source you want. IE XBOX DVD player ECT... i was a first confused too, thinking i can get this and use my TV as a monitor, but was not my intention. Come to think og it, thats why most or NEWER HDTV's come with a VGA Conection, to do jus that, act as an monitor if im right..
                    So if im right and you have this nice 30" PC LCD ETC monitor and want to play/hook up your XBOX 360 to it, this is the cable you need!?

                      Comments about Cables To Go Ultima 6-Ft. Component to VGA Cable:

                      I wanted to connect my netbook to my HDTV, to watch tv programs streaming over the internet (i.e. on hulu etc). At first I could not get this to work, but then I figured it out.First, you need a cable that matches your laptop/netbook and your TV - most often it will be a 15-pin male (on both ends) SVGA cable - i.e. the same as an external computer monitor cable for a laptop.Your TV needs to have an RGB input, and a way to select that input (instead of watching cable TV, DVD player or whatnot).You will also need a length of audio cable, 1/8" and male on both ends in all liklihood - the SVGA cable is only for video and you need a separate audio cable to plug into the headphones "out" on your laptop, and into your TV audio input.OK, so once you have all that, your TV won't automatically just recognize that you have plugged in the cables nor know what to do with them. On your laptop/netbook (assuming you have a PC and running WinXP - Vista, 7 etc will be similar but not exactly the same), right-click on the desktop and select "properties". Then click "settings". You should see pictures of two screens, one of them shaded / inactive. You need to right-click on the inactive one and choose "active" - this tells your laptop that you now have a 2nd monitor attached (which is your TV). Click "apply" and you should see something on your TV - it might just be your desktop background image. At this point you can play with the picture settings - slide the "screen resolution" around until you get a good size picture on your TV, and also play with the "color quality" until you get a good enough image. There are other buttons you can select, something about showing the desktop on the 2nd monitor - you might need to play around to get everything as you want it. If you've gotten this far and do see your desktop on your TV, you can open a window on your laptop - say - any website. Then make the window smaller, and drag it either to the left or right (depending on which monitor is the "new" one), and you will be able to drag it right onto your TV. It's weird at first - you drag the window right off the side of your laptop screen and it appears on your TV. But anyone who uses an external / secondary monitor on their computer knows what I'm talking about - it's the same principal. You'll probably want to adjust the speaker volume on your laptop all the way up. But this totally worked for me - I wanted to watch season 6 of "Lost" on my TV and not on my little computer screen via hulu, and I'm doing that right now.To watch streaming TV, you will definitely need high-speed internet. I'm watching wirelessly and it's not as good as my Roku - so a long ethernet cable would be good, and unless your laptop is right next to your TV a SVGA cable longer than 6' would be ideal - or - get a wireless mouse so you can control the laptop from your coffee table.As long as your TV has an RGB input, you should be able to do this without the need for a video converter, and only using the SVGA and audio cables.This review is for the GigaWare 6' SVGA cable that has 15-pin male connectors on both ends, which RS does carry in-store, and costs [$]. The product here should do pretty much the same thing, you would just connect the 15-pin to your laptop and the RCA cables to your "component" inputs or whatever they're called on your TV - same thing, just different inputs on your TV. The main thing is telling your laptop that you have that second external monitor and you're good to go.
