1 out of 5 eggsOutright fraudulant

Pros: Functions below 160MHz.

Cons: This seems to be using the same 160MHz-rated VGA DAC as every other DP/VGA adapter, but arbitrarily claiming bigger numbers and charging substantially more money. In reality, it's starts bugging out around 180MHz and doesn't get anywhere close to the 266MHz needed for 2048x1536 under VESA-standard GTF or CVT timings; BYTECC is just outright lying about features.

Other Thoughts: Tested using ATI, nVidia, and Intel hardware under Linux and Windows.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap placeholder product

Pros: Cheap, does 1920x1080 (see Cons). Works for Eyefinity with the original Radeon 5870.
Might hold you over until good DP screens are available and/or a good cheap active DP -> DVI adapter is available.

Cons: Screen goes black for 1-3 seconds periodically. This seems random. I do not know if this affects lower resolutions, or just 1920x1080. It is very distracting.

Other Thoughts: This is my second DP to VGA adapter. I previously had an unbranded one that looks identical to this one (from bargaincell via the "kindle peddlers". Heh. That one worked flawlessly (no black screens) for about a month, then just died for no reason at all and wouldn't push a signal through anymore. I bought this Bytecc branded one through newegg to replace it.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works, but with caution

Pros: Well as previous posters commented, it works but at a price. Reason I say this is because the VGA is an analog signal and when you hook up the other 2 monitors via DVI, the catalyst software makes the 3rd VGA monitor not match with the other 2. I've had issues with the display resolution being stuck at 1600x1200 on a 1920x1200 monitor. My video card could not recognize the type of monitor that was attached like the DVI ones.

So i've googled a few things and had to write my own .inf file for my 24" Dell. It worked after that but when you go in to calibrate the bezzel compensation, it wouldn't work due to 3rd monitor being "different" (VGA) even though all 3 were the same monitors.

In a nutshell:
- cheap
- works

Cons: Need technical knowledge for this setup to work. For the average person, that couldn't figure out how to set this up, this could have been a nightmare. All of the negative review on this adapter are from users that didn't spend enough time tinkering with it until it worked.

- not intuitive
- need to know a thing or 2 about .inf files
- price

I know, the price of $30 dollars is much cheaper than the $100 adapter sold at dell ( Active DVI to DisplayPort adapter), but the hassle at the end of the day makes you wanna buy it and have it work out of the box. I know I spent at least 2 days messing with the monitors until it worked.

Other Thoughts: If you have the time or will, buy this and tinker with it. But on the other hand, if you want something to work out of the box, then just spend the extra money on the active DVI to displayport adapter and be done with it.

5 out of 5 eggsPositively works

Pros: The biggest "pro" is that it it works!
The second biggest is that it is $70+ dollars less than the Active DisplayPort-to-DVI connector.

Cons: The only "con" is not the fault of this item; but the "con" is that I lose one monitor out to a VGA connection.

Other Thoughts: Running a combo CrossFireX: XFX 5770 and XFX 5750 with 3 Samsung 932BW monitors for a desktop of 4320x900.

Also, it is too early to tell if this may be a recurring problem, but once when I switched users the Eyefinitiy setup failed. Had to shutdown, remove the DP-to-VGA connector and reconnect then reboot for the monitor to be re-detected. I don't have to worry much about switching users, so if this will be a recurring problem, I won't have to deal with it too much.

4 out of 5 eggsAnother confirmed

Pros: Another confirmation to this adapter being able to run eyefinity. I'm running 5760x1080 with a 5830 video card.

Cons: When the monitors go to sleep, the one using this adapter does not wake up. But it takes 3 seconds to fix, just unplug it from the video card and plug back in and then everything comes back up like normal. -1 egg for this minor inconvenience but the price difference from an ''active'' display port adapter (1/3 the price) makes up for this quite easily.

Other Thoughts: Cannot even notice any quality difference between VGA and DVI, still very good.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Eyefinity

Pros: Using this adapter, I'm able to run 5760x1200 resolution on 3 x 28" LCDs with 2 x Radeon 5770s in CrossFire. The ATI support page lists this adapter as only being validated for Eyefinity at 1600x1200 but I've had no problem getting it to run 1920x1200.

Cons: The size of the adapter interferes somewhat with the HDMI port on the Radeon 5770. My primary card has 2 DVI ports so it wasn't a problem but I noticed that the secondary card I bought for the CrossFire setup only has 1 DVI port. Be sure to take that into account with your setup.

Other Thoughts: The Catalyst Control Center randomly reports an error with the DisplayPort connector, saying that it won't be able to run at the highest resolution. I'm still able to run the monitor at 1920x1200 though, so I'm not sure what's up with that error message.

Getting Eyefinity configured takes some digging and patience. There's no button in the CCC that just says 'Setup Eyefinity'. It's worth the effort though!

3 out of 5 eggsok...i guess

Pros: 30% of the cost of an active DP-->DVI adapter.
1 day delivery.

Cons: Occasionally goes through 2-3 seconds of black screen before recovering.
Abit fickle as it randomly forces the screen down to 640x480 and will not allow me to reset it to 1920x1080.
If using a 5850 it will block the HDMI port but that is no biggie for me.

Other Thoughts: Eyefinity does indeed work with this at 5760x1080 but it might take abit of work.
While making this review I went through another black screen but whatevs.
What was ATI thinking about when they decided to use Apple's annoying version of HDMI...

5 out of 5 eggsEyefinity Confirmed

Pros: This adapter does indeed work with Eyefinity. I am confirming this because all the reviews before me were iffy. I am currently running 5760x1080 resolution (6056x1080 w/ Bezel Correction).

Cons: Vga, not DVI/HDMI picture quality not amazing, but gets the job done. Adapted monitor must be in the middle of the Eyefinity setup.

The monitor using this adapter will not wake up after falling asleep... this could be an ATI driver issue though.

Other Thoughts: Alright here is the most important note to make: the monitor must be using the adapter MUST be the middle monitor in your eyefinity setup. This is the ONLY way I have gotten the configuration to work.

I have 3x24'' Acer LCD's. 2xdvi 1xVga->DP. I am driving this setup with 5850.

This is the best route to take, save yourself $100 dollars and get this adapter instead of blowing money on the Active DP/DVI.

4 out of 5 eggsworks for eyefinity for me

Pros: Hooked up a third monitor with one of these and yes, eyefinity is working for me.

Cons: Switching users causes all three screens to go into 16 color 640x480. Not sure if this is the adapter or just eyefinity being buggy.

Other Thoughts: Even with the above issues, I'll take it over the $100 active adapter any day, and patiently wait for monitors w/ a displayport connection to come down in price a bit.

1 out of 5 eggsEyefinity Users Go Elsewhere

Pros: Works up to 1280x768

Cons: Will not work at anything above 1280x768

Other Thoughts: I've been trying to solve my Eyefinity problems by throwing money at the situation. The Dell adapter doesn't work more than a min or two at a time, and this one will not work at any res above 1280x768 which left my 1680x1050 monitors hosed. I tried 3 different cables of different shielding. I even went out and bought 3 new monitors. I finally got the Apple active adapter. Although it is quirky it does work at 1920x1080. So 3 adapters, 3 different vga cables, and 6 monitors I finally got Eyefinity stable. So back this adapter goes and I'll be selling the Dell.
