RetroTINK announced some new products over the weekend. They have a Pro version of their classic RetroTINK-2X product that includes a component input and optional scanlines. The 2X-SCART is like the classic RetroTINK-2X but with a single SCART input and also a scanline feature. And finally, the COMP2RGB is a component to SCART transcoder.

I find it frustrating that the 2X Pro hit right after I just got the original model, but looking at the features, I don't think it would bring me much beyond a nicer case. The scanlines make the image very dark, from my understanding.

I will say I'm very happy with the performance of my 2X. It's light years ahead of my TV's scaling of composite, for example, and S-Video looks very nice.
