Some sort of TVBox for my monitor?

I'm looking at these guys:

VS NextVision N4
Samsung SIR-T4S1
Avermedia TVBOX
Or something similar

They're TV (VGA?) boxes that allow you to hook up your monitor as a display for consoles and such (well I just really need it for consoles).

But the list (of the best of the best) I saw on CNET is really old, and I can't find any Canadian resellers (their respective sites say Best Buy Canada and TigerDirect sell them in their stores but none of the stores I've tried have them or at least the dumb sales guys over the phone don't know shit, as per usual, about anything not regarding desktops and notebooks.

So what I need is tips and advice on which one to get (affordability is a big part) and where I could find a Canadian reseller (I'm calling Futureshops and Best Buys today because since I work at a Futureshop I can the things on cost and not on a price affected by The Great Canadian Gouge).

    Doesn't align exactly, but some stuff in this thread I made a few days ago might help

    I've since had a look at a few converter boxes on eBay, but I've given up on the engrish translations for now. I think I'll see what some brick and mortar stores have.

    I own the NextVision N4, and it has worked reliably for several years now. It does tend to get a little hot, so you'll want to keep it well ventilated. I paid about $50 for it from some discount electronics store I found on froogle.
