This review is from: SIIG CB-HDM011-S1 6 ft. HDMI to DVI-D Cable
Pros: I like to promote less-popular newegg items that I like. This is not a thin cable, but it is thinner and more flexible than any other hdmi to dvi cable that I have used. The hdmi plug is short, just like in the photo, so it doesn't stick out from your laptop as much, so it is less likely to get in the way of your mouse or whatever you place on the side of your laptop. No built-in ferrite cores, but you don't need the ferrites because a 1920x1200 pixel display is sharp and not noisy.
Cons: No cons, but I only give 5 stars for a truly exceptional user experience.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Unique adapter provides a 12.75 inch extension to a female DVI connector. You also get a female HDMI connector in parallel. DVI results are good.
Cons: HDMI results are inconsistent (see details below), I had to return one of my two adapters because of this.
Other Thoughts: I purchased two units of the BTA-031 DVI to DVI/HDMI adapter. I attached the unit to the female DVI connector on the monitor. Both units worked fine with a 6-foot DVI cable to a 1920 x 1200 monitor. Neither unit worked at all with a 6-foot HDMI cable to the 1920 x 1200 monitor. Neither unit worked at all with a 15-foot HDMI cable to a 1680 x 1050 monitor. One unit worked fine with a 6-foot HDMI cable to the 1680 x 1050 monitor. The other unit produced red lines on the 1680 x 1050 monitor with the 6-foot HDMI cable. I am returning this second unit.READ FULL REVIEW
