    Comments about Bi-Directional S-Video Male to RCA Female Video Adapter:

    I have an older projector which had only composite video and s-video inputs, but I wanted to connect two devices to it, neither of which had s-video output. This compact device converts composite video to s-video with no visible loss in quality. I even switched (the same signal source) back and forth between the straight composite and converted-to-s-video inputs and I could see no difference in the quality. I am very happy with it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was prompt, arriving a day before it was expected. The packaging was adequate (simple adapter, not much packaging needed).

        Comments about Bi-Directional S-Video Male to RCA Female Video Adapter:

        I ordered this despite some negative reviews. For this design, the weight of the connector with a cable can loosen the connection to an S-video female appliance (like a laptop). The resulting somewhat delicate connection can require patience or propping skills, which some reviewers may not have.
