    Not sure if I understand this product correctly. It looks like a tuner that you can plug a VGA monitor into -- works completely independently of the computer. But I can't figure out why I'd want to do this.

    Not for me, even though the price seems good. Unless someone can explain the utility of it.

    If you had your computer in the kitchen or office (you would now also have a tv there)?

    I think you are correct with your understanding of the product.

    Okay, so I guess I got it. It can add TV functionality to a room with a PC but no TV, without having to add all the hardware associated with a TV.

    But I think, given a choice, I'd rather have one of those USB TV tuners. That way I also get the video capture functions, too. I notice that buy.com has one of those from the same manufacturer, Kworld, for $42.99. All the same google checkout savings also apply.

    I dunno. It's got me thinking.

    From what I read, all you need is the monitor.....(not a whole pc), at least that was my understanding. Good luck.

    I'm reading the same as you about the monitor. But, at least in my own home, I can't imagine any room having a computer monitor while lacking the computer.

    But anyhow, thank you for all your help.

    I believe you can also plug a game system into it too, so I can watch TV, while my son uses his playstation using the computer monitor.
    I think you can also watch tv in a window on the monitor. My back faces my TV when using the computer, this way I can watch TV while using the web and not strain my neck.

    1 x Composite - RCA Video In
    1 x S-Video Video In
    1 x 15-pin D-Sub VGA-in
    1 x 15-pin D-Sub VGA-out
    1 x 3.5mm Stereo Jack Audio Out Left
    1 x 3.5mm Stereo Jack Audio In Right
    1 x RCA (Left/Right) Audio
