You get a 10% discount if you buy 5 or more. My birthday is coming up.

This box only accepts composite and s-video inputs so it will upsample
everything.

that looks even better, not requiring the component vga! But even though
it seems digital, the signal is still starting analog on the xbox int.
right? So where is the performance gain?

It seems to only natively accept composite but with dongles can use
s-video or component video. What do you mean exactly?

Reading what's posted here: http://www.x2vga.com/ suggests that the
aforementioned converter might not be that great. I've asked lik-sang
if I would have to switch to a TV to see my dashboard, as x2vga suggests
you will for other products.

i have a true VGA adaptor for the xbox. true progressive scan, no
upsampling. had it for about 2 years now and don't remember the website i
got it from. some guy from the midwest i believe, was building them. it has
been perfect
