After debating long and hard whether I should go for a JS converter or a SyncBlaster, I went for the Syncblaster. This decision was based purely on price. I now have my system all setup and can confirm that the Syncblaster works better than I expected. I now also know that I won't miss the "Just" mode (I am sure a lot of people here will be glad to hear that this will be the last you will hear from me on this subject) as I have been watching everything in 16:9 and you can't really notice that the ratio is wrong. However, its not 100%.. With certain colours (I think it was white on blue) VERY slight horizonal streaks/shadows could be seen in the blue eminating from the right hand side of the white. Its like a very long ghost.. Saying that, it almost un-noticable and I am not even slightly concerned about it.. But if I could improve it, I obviously would.. Do you think that the JS box would be any better?.. For a start, the problem could be caused by the cable, which hard-wired into the SyncBlaster. I don't mind spending the extra on the JS box, but I want to be sure that I will get an improvement in this area. Any info on this would be appreciated.
