I need some info in Vga adapters for the dc

Post by dcxbox » Wed Dec 31, 1969 6:00 pm

I want a Vga adapter for my dc, but don't know what to buy. I need to know do they work with your pc speakers, and which one is better, the Blaze vga adapter(its$19.99) or the Naki's Vga Coverter (its $14.99)

From what i've heard, the Naki VGA Box is a source of incomplete evil.
Apparently it has a very tight fitting and many monitors are rendered imcompatible due to this.

Hope this helps.

My Naki VGA box has never given me any trouble. I don't like the TV/VGA switch too much, and it lacks a VGA pass-through, but other than that, no complaints.

Same here. Lack of a VGA pass-through is the only real complaint about the Naki box.

I'd recommend the Performance VGA box. It has a passthrough for your montiro and PC speakers and comes with all the necessary cables as well. It has worked great fo me. No problems to speak of.
