    Component seems to be better for me than composite if HDMI, VGA, or DVI is not available. But you will most likely not notice too big of a difference. If there is no component connector on your laptop, you will need get a converter from the output on your laptop to the input of the TV. You will need an active adapter for DVI or HDMI to Component or Composite because one is digital and the other is analog.

    Thanks. I'll keep this advice for the future if nothing else works.

    It would be better to use a VGA to Component cable since you will not lose quality since they both use analog. If you use an HDMI to Component adapter, you may lose a bit of quality if the adapter is not good. And, a VGA to Component is cheaper.

    I've looked on Ebay & Amazon & a little confused at some of the listings.
    Some say I need a converter box, others say just the cable will do. Which is it?
    I JUST want to be able to attach the VGA part to my laptop & the component part to my TV, will this one work for me?

    It should, since since both are analog, unlike HDMI, which would need a converter box.
