The X2VGA2 is a video transcoding device that allows you to use your Xbox, Wii or PS2/3 with a computer monitor but retain the high definition video signal. It’s designed for use with game consoles that use the standard video component output which it transcodes, outputting 480p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p equivalent resolutions for use on a computer monitor via a VGA connector. You can connect 2 video consoles at once and it has a VGA pass-through so you can leave your PC connected to the monitor at the same time. It doesn’t do DVI and to get 1080p resolution you’ll require a 17″ monitor or larger but that shouldn’t be a problem right? Available for $60US.
