    The Jsvideo or the keene?
    Any good/bad experiences?

    Your help and experiences are appreciated:blush:

    i have used the keene version and have to say the picture produced was far better than expected, however the image does shift over to the left about 8%.
    there is a small pot in side the unit that corrects this a little.
    this is fine and didnt annoy me to much but worth knowing.

    I use the keene converter & have had no problems with it. However I do think it's a bit expensive for what it is !

    I have the JSvideo and Keene converters and am happy with both.

    I havn't had the screen shift problem with either.

    I just swapped them on my Pioneer 939-a DVD player and I would say the picture quality comming out of the JS version is slightly better but this may just be with my system.


    Have a look at the Lektropacks unit

    you can find it here

    sorry it was the letropacks i bought in the end not the keene, the keene was out of stock at the time.

    so i guess you can count that one out as the others dont have the shift problem.

    Hi,

    I'd buy the JS one and support the sales (and the future) of a small producer who makes a range of high quality products.
