1 out of 5 eggsDOA - do not buy

Pros: Nice packaging...of a non functioning product.

Cons: I confirmed that the DVI cable worked on the DVI connector, no issues there. I hooked up a VGA monitor to confirm the connector on the docking station worked, again no issue there. So the issue is not the DVI cable nor the VGA port, the only remaining piece is the adapter...dead on arrival. Won't buy Rosewill products after this, lesson learned.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's Complicated

Pros: It did work going from VGA to DVI

Cons: It did not work going from DVI to VGA. I tried various different connections cables going from DVI-I to VGA, DVD-D to VGA, and a mix of the 2, but I could not get it to work.

Other Thoughts: From my research on DVI and from the other reviews, I think the issue with this adapter is that DVI connections are more complicated than people think. I think it has to do with the difference between DVI-I and DVI-D.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Thank you very much for purchasing this unit.
We strive to provide the most reliable and highest quality products to our customers.

This adapter is available to use for the following configuration.
Connect a new DVI-I monitor to an old VGA graphics card.

1. You would use a male to female VGA cable such as RCW-800
2. Connect one end to your VGA card
3. Connect the other end to the RCW-701.
4. Take DVI-I cable and connect one end to the adapter
5. The other end to the monitor
6. Your New DVI-I monitor would be able to connect to the old VGA graphics card.

This is a simple solution for older generation systems and does not apply to newer systems

If you are not fully satisfied with our product please contact us to better assist you in resolving your problem.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy it.

Pros: I bought two of these adapters and neither one of them worked. Again, if I could, this item would recieve no egg ratings at all.

Cons: Don't waste your time and money.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

Pros: none

Cons: This is an absolute piece of junk. Don't buy it. This is the first time in my many years of buying hardware, software, accessories and more that I receive an item that absolutley does not function. Don't buy this item. If possible, I would give this item a zero rating. Unfortunately, I have to give at least a ones-egg rating to the item.

Other Thoughts: I trust New Egg but they really need to put some form of testing that verifies this item is worthy of being promoted and sold at their website.

1 out of 5 eggsNo Go Ghost rider

Pros: NewEgg customer service

Cons: You get what you pay for...bought three of these and sure enough three out of three didn't work. No go on a KVM or straight up DVI cable. Not going to get into the triage details but trust me, I gave a good effort trying to get these to work. Pretty lame...

Zero eggs should really be an option cause that's how I feel

Other Thoughts: NewEgg customer service is wonderful. Can't say enough about it. This adapter however, don't waste your time

1 out of 5 eggsDOES NOT WORK!!

Pros: no

Cons: it's a pretty standard plug.
Aside from the whole not working thing.
video signal was not being transferred.

Other Thoughts: I bought two, one as a backup because they were cheap and I saw a lot of conflicting reviews, but some people seemed to not have checked what type of dvi cable they had so I purchased it anyway.

Go with the negative reviews and do not buy this item. I had all the correct cables and neither of the two connectors I bought worked. I checked the settings on my computer and it was very apparent that no signal was coming through the connector at all.

I will not be buying a rosewill product again!
