4 out of 5 eggsWorks

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Design

Cons: Just a tiny tad little bit blurry compared to my old setup with DVI-I to VGA inactive adapter. I'm guessing the very miniscule loss in video quality is due to the adapter being active and having to convert the signal to analog.

Other Thoughts: I had to use this active DP to VGA adapter because my TV reports incorrect EDID information to Windows when using any digital connection such as HDMI, which locked my resolution at 1680x1050. I tried everything possible to fix this issue. I rewrote the EDID with the correct information and found out Windows will not load unsigned drivers. It would cost $370 to have my driver signed, which is out of the question. I contacted the TV manufacturer who said they would forward my issue to the engineers and have them update the EDID information.

Aside from getting an entirely new TV, or waiting for the engineers to update the driver, this adapter was my only hope.

Plugged this baby in, and it defaulted to 1920x1080, just as it should!

5 out of 5 eggsWorked great

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Worked as advertized

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: We really nee to move to DVI on our monitors but these worked so that I could run 2 VGA LCDs one on this and one on a DVI to VGA adapter on a Dell 7010.

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Works flawlessly at lower resolutions.

Cons: Will not reliably transmit higher resolutions such as 1920x1080 or 1920x1200. I am stuck using it at 1680x1050, max.

Other Thoughts: Intel HD4600 video chipset. Dell 2407WFP monitor.

Maybe an Intel driver fault. Apparently they don't officially support converting DisplayPort to VGA or DVI.
With so many other reviews saying that this works okay, I'm going to assume the fault lies with Intel on this one.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Nice concept, small adapter, seems to be well-made, cheap.

Cons: Doesn't work. I tried using these on an Intel board with HD graphics, has VGA and displayport outputs. I was trying to save money by going with a vga only monitor. I thought it might have been due to the vga limitations (it wasn't a dual output, so the monitor is only analog). SO I tried it on the existing monitor that did have Digital input, and it still wouldn't work.

3 out of 5 eggsExpensive, but works

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Works perfectly. Hangs off the GPU by a short cable to leave room for other connectors.

Cons: Pretty expensive for an adapter.

Other Thoughts: Bought this because it was the only DP to VGA adaptor I could find, but $35 + shipping seems awfully pricey.

5 out of 5 eggsdid exactly what i needed

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Good part, plugged it in, it did exactly what you expected:
it converts displayport to vga.

the cable is short, unnoticeable, and is solid on connection.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: startech has always been my go-to for cable needs.

if you live in the analog era still, then you need to have this adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks !

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: It works ! Plug and play with eyefinity and third monitor. Feels solid.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Trying to set up a third monitor with eyefinity (Asus 6050 2GB card) with cables alone. Wouldn't work. Got this and added and third monitor displayed insantly.

2 out of 5 eggsNot recommended for use with KVM switch

This review is from: StarTech DP2VGA DisplayPort to VGA Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Works most of the time, except for...

Cons: ...purchased 4 of these for work in a PC lab designed for imaging. Was working under the assumption that this would work in place of the DVI adapters to use with our VGA only KVM switches. Video processing seems to take considerably longer using this product instead of the DVI. Did not work at all when going standalone into one of our monitors directly.

Other Thoughts: It would be in your best interest to switch out your KVM switch instead of buying 4 of these. Pricetag might be higher, but headaches will decrease significantly.
