I don't have one, I just did a little bit of research on HDMI
converter boxes recently.  The HDFury2 is also available on monoprice
for a similar price to the other one you mentioned, and of the two,
I'd go with the HDFury.  It has digital audio output, auto-centering
of the image, and dynamic range scaling.  It's hard to tell how it
compares with the one you linked, but it just seems like what you're
getting is better documented with the HDFury.
