Description du produit
Until now, Wii could not be connected to an HDTV via the HDMI port. How This Works The Wii HDMI adapter plugs directly into your Wii's cable port (the same port you use to connect the Wii video cable that is included with the Wii). After you have plugged it into this port, you will have an available HDMI port. You will also need to purchase an HDMI cable if you don't have one already. Performance This adapter creates a super-accurate, rich and vibrant 480p reproduction of your Wii's video signal. For the best performance, make sure your Wii's video output setting is switched to 480p (also called "Enhanced Definition" in your Wii Resolution settings). This will double the average refresh rate of your pixels and deepen the colors. Audio Break-out The Wii to HDMI adapter includes an audio break-out port that allows you to send stereo audio to another audio device of your choice (like an audio receiver). The port is in the form of 3.5mm stereo port. Handles Both Audio and Video through HDMI Too Since HDMI is an audio/video signal, this device rises to the task and handles both through the HDMI port. This conveniently allows you to run a single cable to your TV unless you wish to break the audio out separately using the adapter's break-out 3.5mm port.

I do use it to speed run Metroid Prime since there's only a hint of lag, and the stream quality looks great despite the color depth not being quite as good as component cables. Most importantly I can stream 480p without expensive component splitters or a laggy hdtv. Any modern capture card has hdmi passthrough, which means I can use my second monitor to keep an eye on obs, and I just plug my primary monitor into my capture card output and play the Wii on that.
Video quality isn't as good as split component cables, but way cheaper, especially if you're playing on a lagless 480p crt ($$$ BVM/PVM).
The other alternative is getting a framemeister which is also a huge money commitment. So if you want to stream 480p near laglessly this is the maximum quality per cost out there.
I attached a very short capture I did using the Sewell adapter. (EDIT: It seems like Amazon compresses the video so it no longer runs at 60fps, check Youtube for a better clip). I did not adjust any other settings on the Elgato, so hopefully this will be helpful if you're trying to see the obvious differences. I'm really bad at Melee, plz no bully.
So this converter was exactly what I needed to feed 480p output to my receiver, which can then upscale it to 1080p to my TV. It's also just way easier and cleaner to use HDMI cables than analog cables (1 hdmi cable for audio & video vs 3-5 composite/component cables).
I looked at some of the other Wii HDMI converters, but I decided to get this one because:
a) Most of the others were off-brand ones of questionable quality
b) Most of the others were sold directly from Hong Kong or some weird place instead of being fulfilled by amazon and getting my 2-day free shipping with Prime
c) Most of the others upscaled to 1080i or 720p, which means it would then have to be upscaled again to 1080p, and you really don't want to be scaling a signal more than once or you just end up with crappy output
d) Even if another one did upscale to 1080p, I would prefer it to just take the Wii's native 480p output to my receiver and let my receiver do the upscaling, which is surely of better quality than the other converters' built-in scaling.
Summary: Probably the best HDMI converter available for the Wii. It would be nice if the converter was smaller, physically, but it's not a big deal. The only real complaint I have is that Nintendo should have built the Wii with HDMI output and 1080p support from the beginning, but that really has nothing to do with this product. 5 stars.
