Are they any good?
My first question is where would you use one? Most equipment has that built in and better performing than an external device.
Since you have your reasons, I wish I could tell you one way or another if they are any good. I haven't had the need yet. My TVs and A/V Receivers do the job for me.
Sorry couldn't be more help,
I have to agree with Tom here. Recognize that a component to HDMI converter should provide a means for incorporating digital audio, so it should have either an optical or coaxial digital audio input. However, you should also be aware that such a converter would not support the latest types of HD surround audio such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. OTOH, most current receivers with HDMI outputs provide component to HDMI conversion (recognizing the audio shortcomings).
Personally, I'd avoid the use of a converter.If you have a component video source you wish to connect to your TV, use a component input on the TV. If needed, component selector switches are readily available.
