    Thought I would test this out after seeing Linus's review of the much more expensive m cable.

    Wasn't expecting much from this £19.99 cable. Wasn't expecting anything tbh.

    But... Wow, it actually works.

    Tried this on Switch, and an OG Xbox One. It is amazing, adds AA, enhances colors and sharpness. Games have more pop.

    Also used it on media box set to 1080P 24Hz, and it really does upscale to full 4K with way more detail / clarity that built in scalars offer.

    Anyone else tried this ?

    Would like to hear other peoples opinions on it.

    No but I struggle to believe a 20 quid cable would be better than the native upscaling by the tv set. It sounds like it adds a load of processing to the image as well, which I specifically disable on my OLED due to the unwanted input lag it causes.

    My question was also regarding any additional input lag. I'll keep an eye on it anway.

    It definitely sounds interesting but like SS-89 I'm a bit sceptical and usually turn off all processing. I'd be interested to see some comparison screenshots from some captures to see to what extent it is changing the original image.

    Yeah I thought it would literally do nothing, but it really is amazing. Adds AA, improves color, you need to see in action. If anyone is interested, can always pick one up for £20 and return it if you don't like it.

    I've bought a second now xD
