    Wii on a small TV?

    Hi.

    I'm currently thinking about buying a Wii. Since I only a a quite small TV (~38cm screen diagonal, about 14" I think), I'm curious whether i'ts worth to buy one. Does anyone play with such a small screen and can tell me about the, yes, well.. "Feeling"? Is it any fun to play with?

    Seeing how they make 7 to 10 inch screens for Wii.. I'm sure it's not bad. At one time, I had mine connected to my computer, a 17" screen, and it was great. You'll enjoy it just as much.

    Did you use a RGB-to-VGA Converter Box? If yes, how was the image quality?

    Anyway thanks for your answers, but I'm looking forward to some more opinions

    my wii looks fine on my 19"(48cm) TV
    it actually has a little better quality because the size of my tv is closer to 480p than my dads 36" TV is

    I have a Macintosh, so I used an EyeTV hybrid. I had the analog version, not the digital. Not sure if digital would have made a difference, but the lag was terrible. It was so bad, it made gameplay nearly impossible. Image quality was great.

    honestly i think it depends on what you are playing. If you playing a game with multiple people that could be an issue. However, I have been playing ssbb online over my friends house and her tv is the smallest thing on the planet...... So basically, By yourself = ok..... No by yourself = not ok

    I think most games would be OK. But SSBB would be very hard to play. I play it on a 27" TV, and even on that TV I find it sometimes difficult to follow what's going on especially on really large maps (such as New Pork City).

    I have it hooked up to a 19" TV at the moment, it's fine, but a bigger TV (with widescreen and HDTV support) will definitely be a lot better - I've also hooked it up to a 40" plasma screen, and it was amazing.

    Until last Christmas I had my Wii connected to a 12" CRT TV, and it was perfectly fine. To be honest, size makes very little difference as long as you're sitting the optimum distance away. Split-screen multiplayer can be difficult to see on smaller TVs though, since they're generally lower resolution, but there are no problems with the Wiimote-pointing or anything like that when using a small TV, and you can see everything going on in single-player games just fine.
