for PC PS3 1 x HDMI Male to VGA Female Adapter Cable  to  RGB Female Video 1080P Converter Adapter Cable AC106-NE1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: • No brainer installation
• Sharp image
• Low cost
• Quick shipping
• Threaded screw lugs

Cons: The device will fail if a cell phone is near it

Other Thoughts: I always use a second monitor with my 17" laptop as it helps out using AutoCAD. My latest laptop only had HDMI output while my second monitor was a 15" 1280x1024 VGA type. I didn't want to spring for a new monitor just to have HDMI so I found this adapter.

There is no installation at all as you plug the cord into your HDMI and the VGA cable into the adapter. The adapter has threaded lugs to screw the VGA cable into which is nice. The device generates very little heat and the image on my second monitor seems even sharper than it was out of my old laptop with VGA straight out of the computer.

I found that it worked far better to set my second monitor to 75Hz in lieu of 60Hz like I used to run it. At 60Hz, parts of the image would be fuzzy. I also discovered that laying my iPhone within 6" of the adapter would cause it to blink and even turn off altogether. It was not enough of a con to deduct an egg.

Belkin Model F5U409V1 USB to Serial Portable (DB9) Adapter
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs Not Compatible with 64-bit OS 04/19/2012

This review is from: Belkin Model F5U409V1 USB to Serial Portable (DB9) Adapter

Pros: Belkin products were recommended to me as being the best brand for this type of USB to RS-232 conversion.

Cons: Although there is no indication of this on NewEgg, this product does not come with any drivers for 32-bit Windows OS nor are there any available on the Belkin web site.

Other Thoughts: Belkin web site claims that they have another similar product (F5U257) that does have 64-bit drivers. Why on earth don't they just make a 64-bit driver for this product?

This review is from: Belkin Model F5U409TTCU USB PDA (To Serial) Adapter

Pros: Belkin USB to RS-232 adapters were recommended to me as being the best manufacturer for this type of product

Cons: Although there is no indication on the NewEgg site, this product does not come with drivers for any 64-bit Windows OS nor are there any available on the Belkin web site. Can't tell you if this product works since I no longer own any 32-bit computers

Other Thoughts: Belkin web site claims that they offer a similar product (F5U257) that does have 64-bit drivers. Why on earth don't they just make a 64-bit driver for this one?
