VisionTek Active DisplayPort™ to Dual Link DVI converter is a new generation DisplayPort™ to Active Dual Link DVI converter that receives both video and audio streams from an upstream DisplayPort Source link and converts to a Dual Link DVI output. The DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual-Link adapter lets you connect your DisplayPort video source (Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, etc.) to any DVI-D display, eliminating the expense of having to upgrade to a DisplayPort-capable monitor. The DisplayPort adapter offers an active conversion and easy connectivity directly without any external power input and is able to handle full dual-link resolutions (up to 2560x1600). Use it to mirror your display to another monitor, or extend your desktop to increase your workspace.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work with 30" Apple Display

Pros: -works as advertised up to 2560x1600 on my hp z30 display (highest res display I had available to test it on)
-says "Dual Link" on it, which is actually nice to help me keep track of it separate from the dozen other DP -> DVI adapters I have

Cons: -Didn't work with an Apple 30" cinema display (the very thing I bought it for). While it did seem to recognize the display as capable of up to 2560x1600 (native) resolution (unlike all my other adapters which only show it as having a max native res of 1280x800), if I specified a resolution above 1280x800, even with this adapter, the display just went dark and wouldn't show anything :-(. And yes, I do know it requires a dual-link cable. Note that the Apple 30" cinema display has the cable built-in. And yes the Display works fine with an nVidia card that has a dual-link dvi ouput in a newer Dell workstation desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Wanted to connect 2nd monitor from DVI to GTX 980 DisplayPort with a native resolution is 2560x1600. Used Dual Link DVI cable. Plugged in and worked right away. Running perfectly.

Cons: No cons at all. Others have posted it not working with higher res. It is my impression that you need to ensure that you use a dual link cable with this adapter in order to get 2560x1600.

Other Thoughts: It would be ridiculous to spend the money on the more expensive solutions.

2 out of 5 eggsProfessional computer tech review

Pros: sadly i cant say there are any.

Cons: this item says it will do display port to DVD-D duel link. i know i have the right cables as they say duel link on them and i have run DVD-D 120Mhz nvidia 3d on these monitors with another crad. these will not work with a nvidia 980. they seem almost close enough to support 120Mhz but they don't.

Other Thoughts: you might be able to get them to work if you are lucky as some have. but i would steer clear if i where you.

2 out of 5 eggsWould be great if it worked with my Dell 3007WFP

Pros: Cheap, advertised to support "latest generation" computers and 2560x1600 @ 24-bit, unpowered (doesn't need separate USB power)

Cons: Doesn't do the one thing I need it to do - work with my Dell Precision M4800 & E-port Plus II docking station and Dell 3007WFP 30" monitor (2560 x 1600).
My years-old $110 ACCEL powered Displayport 1.2 to DVI-D adapter works perfectly well, but I was hoping to return it and 1) get some money back, and 2) reclaim a USB port.

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for dual link

Pros: Works as a single link adapter

Cons: Doesn't work as a dual link adapter, which is what I bought it for. It just didn't work at all with my 2560x1600 monitor. I bought a Dell adapter instead from a website starting with A and that works fine with my 2560x1600 monitor.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't really work 2560X1600

Pros: Not powered

Cons: Doesn't drive 2560X1600 with out a ton of screen artifacts, intermittent drop outs, etc. I have two of these from a Quadro 2000 card and both work about the same (which is basically not at all).

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend buying this if you are planning on 2560X1600 resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsLearn to use the correct cable

Pros: This simply works!

Cons: People use your brains.

Other Thoughts: The reviewer's that said they couldn't get it to work needs to use a Dual Link DVI cable. I have used this adapter on 5 different computers/laptops at work and I am using the Apple 30 inch Cinema Display and it worked every time on Dells to HP's. People use the right cable before you get on here writing reviews telling people how bad this adapter is when it's your fault.

1 out of 5 eggswish it worked

Pros: Can actually output 2560x1600

Cons: Cannot output 2560x1600 without screen artifacts

Other Thoughts: HP LP3065 monitor. I was surprised it actually kind of worked as there aren't many cheap solutions for converting 2560x1600 resolutions from DL-DVI to DP, but with the horizontal lines and other screen artifacts, this adapter is pretty much useless.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works.

Pros: Works as advertised, connecting my on-board displayport output to my dvi monitor at 2560x14440.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: After reading the hit-and-miss results reflected in other reviews for this product, I was a bit hesitant to order this adapter cable. But I took the plunge, and it's worked for me.

For those considering this adapter, I am using it with this setup:

- --------- 27" IPS-ZERO-G Slim Monitor WQHD 2560x1440

- Dual link DVI cable (included with the above)

- ASUS Z97-A LGA ATX Intel Motherboard

- Intel Core i5-4690K

- Windows 8.1 Pro

I'm getting perfect 2560x1440 in Windows. Video is also available at boot, but I haven't tried to figure out at what resolution.

Best of luck to anyone needing this adapter.
