    It is really nice that it has many different connecting options, even though I wish it had three times of each minimum. One issue with similar (and cheaper) devices I bought is that they have a lot of trouble with games that change resolution or that would mux together different resolutions for foreground and background, which is especially true for the Saturn. The image will suddenly turn black for a few seconds and that is absolutely intolerable when playing shmups, fighting or racing games. As a result, I still feel forced to use my old 1080p plasma that still has scart, vga and component input. A Framemeister is too expensive for me. So if there is someone who could confirm that there are no such issues on the OSSC I would be very thankful. And yes, rgb-scart is the best!

    OSSC works really well out of the box but once you start to tailor the timings and settings to each console the results are really amazing. I have one connected to my LG OLED TV and dang it looks good!!!! BTW make sure to get good quality cables! The cheapo ones from eBay are not going to cut it.

    if your TV already has Component or Scart input as well as HDMI, you probably wont get any improvement from this box, but for all else it sure is great. I guess one benefit of HDMI might be able to plug a capture device in between there, although that might or might not work with this thing.

    I miss SCART Wasn't just that it could carry RGB, but it also had a sync pin (so you could make your shonky European console run at 60Hz) once you'd messed with some internal jumpers in your Megadrive. Also had another 'look at me pin' we didn't see again until HDMI. Basically you could plug in a load of SCART devices, and when you powered one on, your TV would switch to that input.

    omg it was SO hard to plug scart in back in the days, because you had to do it basically blind (scart was always on the back of the TV and the TV normally was not really movable, too big, clunky and heavy).

    Ha! Loved watching Anthony explain SCART to North Americans! Yes, SCART is a great connector - it carries composite, s-video or RGB signals, plus stereo audio and a control signal usually used to switch inputs (so when you turn on the device the TV switches on/switches input and switches back again when turned off). I couldn't believe it when I first went to the US in 2002 and found TVs had no SCART, no digital teletext, no digital TV, not even teletext - and they were 4:3! Imagine my surprise when I had to delve into the world of learning remotes just to make input switching less painful, something that was automatic with SCART. It shattered my image of the US being ahead in tech! Many people still use SCART in the UK for their older DVD players, as it was the standard here for decades and works well. I used to check people's DVD player and set-top box settings when I first visited, as chances were they'd have it set to the defaults of composite output and 4:3 ratio; I'd set it correctly (TVs here have been RGB and 16:9 for about 20 years) and they would be amazed at the jump in sharpness! RGB SCART leads were also my first purchase for all my consoles back in the day: Saturn, Dreamcast, N64, Wii, Xbox, PS2 - I never used the cables in the box! HDMI is better of course, although with a 576i signal it can be hard to tell the difference. Last year I got an HDMI adapter for my Wii when I bought my first TV without SCART sockets, and it looks fine, but not really any better than my Wii with SCART. The one thing I will say against SCART is it is a bit bulky, find if your equipment is all together, but hard for long cable runs that go through walls. You could take the jacket off and feed the cable if you knew what you were doing, but was a bit painful. Also it never carried progressive scan signals, not that it couldn't have, but TV and device manufacturers took the route of just adding component to devices in the UK. Aside from that SCART was, and is, a great connector. A pity the US never got it.
