SYBA SY-ADA33027 IO Crest Mini Displayport Male to VGA Female Adapter

2 out of 5 eggs Doesn't work on an XPS13 09/08/2015

This review is from: SYBA SY-ADA33027 IO Crest Mini Displayport Male to VGA Female Adapter

Pros: Small

Cons: Doesn't work with my Dell XPS13. I tried it with several monitors, and it only seems to work with one of them when the screen resolution was set to 1024x768. Even then, the image on screen had artifacts (tearing and odd moving patterns). Not sure if this is an incompatibility or just a bad component.

Other Thoughts: The same XPS13 works fine with a similar adapter from a different vendor. That adapter explicitly mentions that it is an "Active" adapter. I noticed if the adapter is plugged into the laptop MiniDP port with no VGA monitor attached, Windows switches to 1024x768 resolution. It stays this way until I plug in a monitor, when it switches to the correct resolution.

StarTech.OAM Managed Gigabit Ethernet Fiber Media Converter - Multi Mode LC 550m - 802.3ah Compliant
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works fine. Using it to connect a piece of external equipment to the building LAN. The switch to which it connects reports no dropped packets, over a ~100ft multimode fiber.

Comes with the LC multimode fiber SFP, a plus.

Cons: None.

BitFenix BFA-MSC-MM45KK-RP 17.72
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works well, wires individually sleeved. All-black color improves the looks of an all-black interior case.

Cons: There's no overall sleeve over the entire cable. This makes it easy to get the wires tangled. It would have been nice to have an overall sleeve.

Other Thoughts: I used this inside a server to extend the molex power over to a USB3.0 expansion card.
