My head is spinning... geeesh, I don't think I have anguished over any purchase like this one since buying my HD display. svideo performance is most paramount in my choice here, even against conventional wizdom that says to use the Composite output. Ok, I am going to edit. This is what it really comes down to. Nicolas with the R7G thinks it is a wash between the 99 and the R7G. Better performance on the R7G, better build quality on the 99. I have no expeirence with either one. So what do you all think? Not much mention of the R7G around here or anywhere it seems.
