So if this works well I will buy a 360 tomorrow.

I'm not made of money, income tax check came, store by me has 360's in stock, want to get one. Dont have an hdtv, want to hook it up to my pc monitor that is capable of res up to 1600x1200. Now playing games I see it says 720p and 1080i. Can I play at 1280x960 or just that retarded 1280x720? Cause when I set my monitor to 1280x720 it looks really bad, .....will my games look like this or does the adapter fix the set up? Whats the word? Need a quick schoolin on this as the nearest gamestop has a premium bundle and this vga to hd adapter. All could work perfectly......could.....

Does anyone use one of these and can give me their impressions?

If you get the VGA cable for a 360, you can run it at 1280x1024, that's the highest resolution a 360 supports; it's also the highest 4:3 resolution available. Should work fine, I've seen people using a 360 on a crt and it looks good.

It's somewhat dependant on the game, most will be in full screen (4:3 aspect ratio) but a few are letterboxed widescreen when played on a monitor. You can also select which resolutions your monitor supports and it will use those modes.

And yes, it works with any standard PC monitor that has VGA input.
