1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work.

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: It arrived in a decent amount of time?

Cons: Does not work with my Raedon HD 5800. Trying to have three monitors and have been horribly disappointed. Does not even work when it's the only connection plugged in. I know the DP port works as it is able to function with a non-active DP adapter but doesn't work with this one. Very disappointed and wasted my time and money.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: Does exactly what it's supposed to do with no problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I needed this adapter to add a 3rd monitor to a Radeon 5770 video card. To get the arrangement to work in the end I had to be set up as displayport, hdmi and dvi instead of using both dvi ports. The adapter doesn't carry audio, but the system alerted me of that as soon as I plugged it in. It's not the adapter's fault, the video card doesn't push audio through the displayport, only through the hdmi port. So, that being said, if you want to hook one of your ports to a tv, run that connection from the hdmi port directly on the video card (or run your audio separately).

1 out of 5 eggsWanted 3 Monitors

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: None - Did not work for my setup

Cons: Did not work with a HIS H675F1GD Radeon HD 6750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity video card. Tried several different HDMI monitors in a variety of configurations, but could not get it to register 3 monitors (or even 2 with this converter as one of the connections).

Other Thoughts: Could not get any attempted configuration to register the monitor attached to this converter. For an almost $30 adapter, it cost me about $10 in fees to try it out. I should have just purchased a second video card. Live and learn.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for what it does

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do, works well, has a locking mechanism for the display port side.

Cons: Mines been acting up, continual reduces the eligible hertz, randomly will only go up to 30hz. Normally unplugging it and plugging it back in fixes it, but I feel it's on its way out. Too bad as it's really not that old..

Little annoyed I spent $40 on it.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job, No Issues

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: I have been using this to convert one of my HDMI monitors to plug into my GPU's display port for Eyefinity purposes. I have used this device for independent displays as well as Eyefinity and I have had no issues what so ever. So far it is holding up well. The locking mechanism helps keep the cable attached to the actual card and is easy to remove if you remember to hold down the tab.

Cons: Would have been nice to have some sort of locking mechanism for the HDMI input cable but this is not an issue worth taking off an egg.

2 out of 5 eggsissues found

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: when it works it did its job

Cons: Had issues on initial setup and after reboots, picture was garbled until moved to another display port.
Only works at 30hz, not 60 like my old dvi-hdmi adapter. I was not expecting this. Will research other adapters and may return this one.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfect for Eyefinity!

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: Due to AMD's semi-stupid requirement of an ACTIVE Displayport to HDMI/VGA/DVI, I was unable to run my three monitors all at once for an Eyefinity setup.

I plugged this in, and all three monitors immediately registered in Catalyst Control Center.

Cons: None.

This thing saved me from having a Dell 1920x1080 paperweight.

Other Thoughts: Worked immediately for Eyefinity.

Now gaming at 5670x1080, thanks to this little DP to HDMI adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: works great, even transfers sound

Cons: minor latency when eastablishing connection,

Other Thoughts: I am using this on my middle monitor (1/3 in a surround display) The latency I mentioned is only apparent when the display first initializes it takes a fraction of a second longer to displace the image compared to my other two not displayport monitors but after that initial moment there isn't any type of lag or anything.

1 out of 5 eggsLoses Connection Frequently

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: When it works the display usually looks perfect.

Cons: Frequently disconnects itself. I use this device to connect a larger, primary monitor to my laptop that I use as the secondary monitor. Sometimes the laptop acts as if I had removed the adapter entirely and shifts everything to the laptop monitor, and other times the displays flash back and forth as if it is connecting and disconnecting itself over and over. Jiggling the device does nothing. I have to remove the adapter entirely.

It usually works properly when I reinsert it, but one time it went into a strange mode where it would not provide the proper display options for my monitor. As a result the display looked horrible on my LCD monitor.

This problem may not manifest itself for two hours, and then it may repeat every five minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsActive Display Port to HDMI Adapter

This review is from: StarTech DP2HDS DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920 x 1200

Pros: It actually works as intended. No prob's what so ever! My videocard has 2DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort. When I hooked up 3 monitors with 2DVI 1 HDMI, my videocard would shut off a DVI port. When I hooked up 2 DVI and 1 DisplayPort all three worked!

Cons: A little pricey but like I said, it worked so no eggs off.The end

Other Thoughts: The end of the adapter was off when I opened the package. First thought was it was broke but no, it's so you can take the protector for the plug off.
