1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work for a third monitor

This review is from: StarTech DP2DVI DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter

Pros: Works for one or two monitors.

Cons: DOES NOT WORK FOR A THIRD MONITOR. It says nowhere in the product description that this is apparently a passive, rather than active adapter, thus is will not work for a third monitor. I don't know why you would be using a display port adapter if you WEREN'T trying to run 3 monitors. I've never even seen a monitor that has a display port.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly

This review is from: StarTech DP2DVI DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter

Pros: I have a 4-monitor system, and my monitors don't support DisplayPort. So I needed to find a way to connect my fourth monitor to my EVGA GeForce GTX 670 video card. I use this StarTech DisplayPort to DVI adapter in conjunction with a Tripp Lite P560-010 Dual Link DVI cable to connect my EVGA GeForce GTX 670 video card to my ASUS VS247H-P LED monitor. I've been using this adapter for three years, and it has been working perfectly.

The quality of the cable and connectors also appear to be well put together and of good quality. The latching feature on the DisplayPort is very nice so that the connection does not come loose. That goes the same for the screw holes on the DVI side as well.

Cons: None - It does exactly what I need it to do without any issues.

Other Thoughts: There are two types of DisplayPort adapters: active and passive. Understand which one you need for your application and purchase accordingly.

Many of the negative reviews on this adapter should be disregarded. They are from individuals complaining that a passive DisplayPort adapter is not the same as an active one.

5 out of 5 eggsworks with Lenovo PCs

This review is from: StarTech DP2DVI DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter

Pros: Works. I had no problems with the one I purchased.

Cons: You still need to use your DVI to DVI cable. I can't seem to find a DisplayPort to DVI cable that reaches from the PC to the monitor.

Other Thoughts: I like Lenovo PCs but I wish they wouldn't use DisplayPort connections. Seems to be a hassle. I've had to connect most of the computers with the old school VGA ports.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as intended

This review is from: StarTech DP2DVI DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter

Pros: It's an adapter, so there's not much to say: It works as intended.

My Precision M6400 only has VGA and DP outputs, and my second screen only has VGA and DVI inputs. I was using VGA at until today and suffered from minor artifacts and a slight analog haze. Now with the all-digital DP to DVI connection the screen looks crisp and clear at 1920x1080.

Cons: The cable is quite thick, and the connectors are huge. That's why this loses an egg. It's not because I care about the appearance, but rather I'm concerned by the torque this could put on a DP port. (For me it's not really an issue as the adapter rests on my desk, but on a desktop machine it could be a concern).

Additionally, I could see the giant DP connector as getting in the way in the back of a desktop machine that has a lot of peripheral connections and/or a small form factor.

Other Thoughts: As usual, NewEgg had this shipped out to me incredibly quickly.

Not to beat a dead horse, but as other reviewers have pointed out this is a passive adapter. It won't work in place of a more expensive active adapter. This is not a "con", as it's not sold as an active adapter. The reviews based upon mis-ordering (or misunderstanding of the tech) should be stricken.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works (most of the time)

This review is from: StarTech DP2DVI DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter

Pros: It works as described, just not with the cable I ordered with it for use with my 3rd monitor. See below for details.

Cons: I ordered this adapter and this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186011) cable to setup a 3-way surround display. When I finally got the monitors a few weeks later, the monitor it was hooked up to was showing a ton (literally all over the screen) of red pixel artifacts. I swapped monitors, same thing with all monitors. I swapped DVI cables, and its fine. Unfortunately the other DVI cables are too short for my setup, so now I needed another 6' DVI cable (which I didn't have on hand). Both cables and the adapter sockets are DVI-D, so no idea why it worked with other cables and not the 6' one I ordered with it, but it did not accomplish what I intended it for.

Other Thoughts: Just get one of these, easier, cheaper (than this and a cable), and longer.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: StarTech DP2DVI DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter

Pros: This 20-pin connector does great at sending maximum data transfer rates of 8.64 Gbps plus 1 Mbps for its AUX channel which can carry additional data.

Purchased two of these beauties for my Quadro 6000 and they display well on my dual ViewSonic 24" LCD monitors.

Cons: For the price, can't complain too much. Maybe a bit longer ... (I have a unique set up where my equipment is on the other side of a closet wall. Makes for a clean and orderly office setup.)

Other Thoughts: I find it humorous that some of these other reviewers say their tech level is super high, and then they rate the product with only 1 egg stating the cable doesn't work because they got the wrong one for their application.
