StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter - M/F
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Watch Out for type of DVI you have 09/06/2013

This review is from: StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter - M/F

Pros: I like Star-Tech stuff most of the time

Cons: Beware of the difference between DVI-I (analog) and DVD-D (digital). This adapter is for analog. My laptop dock is DVI-D, I learned the hard way. DVI-D is missing the 4 extra pins around the larger prong. If you have to connect a digital DVI_D to vga, you need the much more expensive active converter. DVI2VGAE

Other Thoughts: The description could have been better regarding this, for people like me who forgot that there are different flavors of DVI out there that won't interchange. I'm sharing dual monitors between a desktop and laptop dock, and the desktop uses the DVI inputs on the monitors. VGA is all that's left for the laptop. The Dell dock had one vga for monitor 2. But for monitor 1, must use the dvi-d output. Was looking to use a VGA cable between. Ordered the active converter instead. Samsung has a new 24" out with display-port & DVI duals, but the other specs aren't as good as what I already have.

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked ok until it died suddenly without warning

Cons: At 14 months, died. Data recovery is not possible or practical. Will have to re-create some Quickbooks data that I stupidly let stay pointed to the C drive. SSDs are fine if you don't keep any valuable data on there, and have a backup image at the ready for when it fails.

Other Thoughts: After talking to others, these things don't have the best reputation as far as lasting. I'm used to standard drives, where if it runs for the first few weeks you might likely get 4-5+ years out of it. 14 months is way to young to die and have to hassle with reloading software etc. 1 star is being generous.

Fosmon Display Port to HDMI Converter with Audio Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs no audio 12/12/2011

This review is from: Fosmon Display Port to HDMI Converter with Audio Adapter

Pros: Adapts display port on my Dell M4500 to HDMI

Cons: No audio comes across through the HDMI...very disappointing

Other Thoughts: I ordered this with an HDMI cable on the same order. The cable arrived in 2 days. The adapter arrived about a week later. You get spoiled by Neweggs always-speedy, efficient shipping. This thing was sold by a 3rd party and shipped via snail-mail. Rather aggravating, I didn't even notice at first that it wasn't sold by newegg (from neweggs website!)
