Would anybody be interested in Dreamcast VGA cables?

I'm gonna get a couple to try them out, and if they work good and there is an interest, I may stock them on a regular basis.

Lemme know what you think

Edit: You can now but them in my store

It's the VGA cables that keep the Dreamcast as my favorite system. If you put out an article about them on your retro gaming, then you'd probably sell out of them :wink: . If you've never tried one out before, you're in for a HUGE surprise. Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, Shenmue... all in high res.

I've seen what it looks like. I just want to make sure these particular cables are reliable before I stock a bunch of them.

But, yes, I plan on demonstarting the benfits in an upcoming article :)

What cables are they? Because I have a Naki VGA box, and a 3rd-party cable (that just says DC VGA Cable on it). They both work fantastic, and I can't tell a difference between the two. Been using both for months and no problems.

Nice, I'd be interested in one especially if they have a passthrough so you can have both the DC and PC hooked up

I like the passthrough idea too, but:
- I don't think these have it
- The ones that have pass-through might degrade your video signal to your monitor

Count me in

I'm interested. Since I haven't been sure on which model to purchase off of eBay, I'll wait for you.

Let me get this right

The DC connects straightforwardly to a regular computer monitor with one of these cables?
Are they typically cheap? Seems that only some DC models will be good for the cables, can you elaborate?
