Lightbulb How good is the quality of playing VCDs on a Playstation???

sponsored links

I'm looking into buying a VCD movie adapter for my PSX, i was wondering:

1. Where can I find one for cheap? (Any stores, online sites??) I heard you can get them for like $10-15

2. How is the quality/sound of them? How well and does the PSX play CD-rs well?

I had the VCD card for the 1st gen PSX model. Played VCD's ok. Pic quality was full screen, slightly blocky in scenes from what I remember. Not as good as the Saturn VCD card, but then again, the Saturn played most VCD's with huge borders.

Had a few options like selecting between each left and right audio channels (needed to watch those dual language VCD's), but there was only a FF function - you couldn't jump to a certain part of the film by entering a certain time, you had to bear with the 4x or so FF. The video input was a bit fiddly as well - if using the official PSX scart, it had to be inserted into the card upside down, and you had to twiddle the lead until you could get a picture. Don't know if this was corrected with the later VCD cards.

Can't remember if it played CDR backups (I only tried it on VCD silvers at the time).

It works OK. It's a tad more blocky than watching VCDs on my Apex AD1500, but for the novelty alone it's worth a few bucks [not more than $30 I'd say]. I play both legit and CDR VCDs [I haven't had any problems with CDRs if they're constructed properly - I use Nero].
