I'm not sure where Conrad buys them. Could be ebay as well, but I hardly doubt that. It's quite a fact that a lot of fake stuff comes from the ebays and ali express sites, so better avoid those places where possible.

I'm using Kaico OSSC with Sakhr AX-370 and it works fine with a Samsung 720 LCD tv in game mode. The picture is razor sharp and i didn't notice lag yet.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and like to build something yourself, the gbs-8200 boards are an option.
With the modifications by Rama gbs-control the picture quality is much better compared to the normal board.
I needed to add a sync stripper (LM1881) for a stable signal.

But why bother with any sort of one system solution?? Modding an MSX will only work for that specific MSX while OSSC is a multi system solution. Also I personally don't recommend any sort of generic converters because they will always introduce at least 1 issue and they are never described in detail like supported resolutions, response time etc. They are always described extremely generically like "Great multi-resolution color picture newest HDMI upscaler!" which should always be a red flag. Dedicated products like Framemeister or even better, OSSC will do the job just fine and it also was discounted a little due to the introduction of a newer model

They are good devices but the Framemeister is TOO expensive and hard to obtain, and OSSC doesn't have HDMI output nor case, and it is a little expensive.

I don’t follow… OSSC does have a case, and HDMI output is the entire point of the device…

The cheap Chinese converters will work, the deciding factor is whether you’re okay with their quality. If you are, then good! Personally I’m very happy with the OSSC, which has a sharp picture, no deinterlacing artifacts and no output lag.

Thanks, I hadn't seen the connector on the other side. By cons, where is the case?

It’s there in plain sight, it’s obviously not a bare board. But if you want to nit-pick about your definition of a case (whether it must be fully enclosed), go ahead. Personally I would go for quality rather than let my choice be determined by whether the style of the case is to my liking. Which it is, btw. Feels very sturdy, and has a nice industrial look.

The case is a 3D printed screwed in solution rather than dedicated plastic but I'd say this is enough. After all this is OPEN SOURCE Scan Converter abbreviation. Because of this I believe there is no price set for it, a LOT of manufacturers/resellers with price variation and you can even solder/assemble it yourself. None of this can be said about Framemeister and that's the difference. I prefer open source solutions much more than those

The platings is not 3D printed but CNCed actually.
