    I really like what this adapter has to offer. The picture and visuals look great on my big screen hd tv. I also added the Marseille Classic as well which definitely helped smooth the rough edges of the visuals. I know the price isn't the cheapest for this product, but the quality and craftsmanship of the product are noticed very quickly when playing the first game. I would recommend this product for anyone who wants to play their gamecube through HDMI while not sacrificing visuals. I also would like to give a shout out to Stone Age Gamer as the customer service and quick delivery was great and much appreciated.

    Feature Added GCVideo HDMI Adapter

    Posted by gourdcaptain on Feb 21st 2022

    There's more basic GC video dongles out there, but this one has some added functionality (analog dual out, optical audio out) that came in a lot handier than I thought it would when I first got it. Customer support is _excellent_, with them helping me out with an issue 2+ years after I got it that required sending it back to them for service.

    GCHD MK II HDMI Adapter

    Posted by Alex Corpuz on Dec 29th 2021

    This adapter does exactly as advertised. It uses both video ports on the DOL-001 Gamecube model and allows 480p output via HDMI or Wii Component cables. The build quality is high and feels sturdy enough to remain securely plugged in with cables attached. I bought a black one and its color and LED match my black Gamecube's color and power-on light perfectly. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 only because the initial installation of the adapter takes quite a bit of force to fit into the Gamecube. However, once installed it feels very secure and works great. To see the best benefits of this product, make sure to hold down the B button when booting up Gamecube games that support 480p to enable progressive scan. Highly recommend this for those with a DOL-001 model Gamecube,

    The only option?

    Posted by Joshua W. on Nov 2nd 2021

    It would seem that this is the only viable way currently to get good quality out of your Gamecube. Thankfully, it does seem to work!

    Great Picture

    Posted by Scott R. on Sep 14th 2021

    It's a bit of a tight fit, but it results in a great picture on modern displays. No issues at all.

    GCHD Mk. II

    Certainly pricey but great to avoid the unobtainable GC component cable when you can use cheap Wii cables instead. Also great to be able to use HDMI on modern TVs if needed. I think the Wii port puts this over the other GCVideo solutions, so you're not just stuck with HDMI only.

    Works Great But Overpriced

    Posted by Travis on Jul 16th 2021

    Does it give you a clearer experience over AV cables yes but does it give you $150 more clarity, I don't think so. I honestly didn't like leaving a box sticking out of the back of the GameCube. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if it was shaped like a L. Other than that if you are dead set on pulling out your GameCube hardware but don't have a CRT anymore this is something you should consider getting. But if you have a reasonably decent PC, dolphin emulator at 4k will be a better experience.

    A Needed Upgrade for Gamecube Gaming

    Posted by Hector Emmanuel Silva Benitez on Apr 26th 2021

    I have been meaning to buy this adapter for quite a while now but was hesitant due to its expensive price. Luckily, Stone Age Gamer offers a payment plan option at checkout which pushed me to buy it. Overall, I am very impressed. Gamecube games never looked better on my HD TV (Samsung). It supports progressive scan which makes the games look even better. I paired this with the MCable and I am shocked at how much you can push the Gamecube's visual quality. Installation is easy, just plug and play. I would not recommend this for everyone, as it is a hefty price, however, for those really trying to get the best quality out of their retro experience its worth buying to see for yourself.
