BYTECC HM-VGA005 HDMI-A to VGA Female Adapter/Converter
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works well 11/08/2013

This review is from: BYTECC HM-VGA005 HDMI-A to VGA Female Adapter/Converter

Pros: Works in my new laptop which only features an HDMI out for an external monitor. The monitor at my workplace is an older LCD that only features VGA input with a 1280x1024 resolution. Was not sure if it would work, but I took the gamble and won. It works perfectly.

Cons: None for me really. Maybe the requirement for external power via USB? But not really.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had found this initially on Newegg. Went into a local store to buy something else that they said they had in stock, but was nowhere to be found when I visited that store. They bait-switched me to the HM-VGA005 at a much higher price than Newegg. Their customer service was also terrible. Newegg has always had stellar customer service, and fast shipping. I really wish that I had purchased from Newegg as it would have saved me a great deal of time and frustration.

BYTECC HMD-15 15 ft. Black HDMI Male to DVI-D Male HDMI High Speed Male to DVI-D Male Single Link Cable M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Newegg customer service exceeded my expectations, again.
Bytecc customer support was also helpful.
Cable seems well constructed. Beyond that, not much I can say.

Cons: It kept losing connection between my monitor and graphics card. Grumble.....

Other Thoughts: Tried updating graphics drivers to see if that was the cause.. Nope. Checked GPU temp... completely reasonable 44C. Reset the monitor. No change.
Finally tried a DVI-D cable from another monitor... problem disappeared.
Bytecc customer support suggested a possible faulty cable. Contacted Newegg about RMA, and they were very accommodating.
I have another cable on order.
Newegg's customer service is one of the things that keeps me coming back again and again. They are polar opposites to some other businesses I have dealt with recently. Keep up the good work Newegg!

SAMSUNG 2333T High Glossy Black 23
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Gorgeous display. The PVA panel is far superior to TN panels. The colors are so much more vibrant and realistic compared to my other LCD displays. I initially purchased just one, but loved it so much that I bought a second.

Cons: This display was 'Deactivated' by newegg last time I checked. Glad to see they came to their senses and reactivated it. Oh well... another store got my business, and for a lower price than the egg.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this display is a no brainer. Large 23-inch PVA panel display at 1920x1080. I had the first one next to a more expensive 24-inch LG, and this made that "nice" monitor look pretty ho-hum. This blows away other displays in the same price category. The colors on other TN panel displays just look washed out and inferior to the 2333T. Well worth the money!!!
