Pros: The wife works out of an office in our house and uses a KVM switch between her personal desktop PC and a company supplied laptop PC. The new/replacement laptop had an HDMI port inplace of the VGA port so couldn't connect through the switch to her big monitor.
This nice little item solved that problem. Just plugged it in and it worked.

Pros: - When it was working, it was exactly what I was looking for. Aside from its flawed design, it functioned perfectly for what I needed. For a while at least.
Cons: - I'm using this adapter on a desktop computer that doesn't ever move. The product has been removed from the packaging and immediately installed then not touched. Despite this, I've used this thing for barely 3 months and it just randomly gives out killing one of my screens. I have to crawl under the desk and wiggle the adapter around until the image comes back. Guess you get what you pay for.
- The cable is uselessly short. Normally, DVI cables' weight is compensated with little threaded pegs that screw into the chassis. Allowing the chassis to bare the weight of the plug, not to graphics card. Knowing this, Rosewill has designed this adapter with a very short cable. The cable isn't long enough to allow the big DVI plug to rest on the floor so all the weight from the adapter's female end and the DVI's male is just hanging off the display port causing stress on the GPU. I was able to scoot my sub woofer over and rest the adapter on top of it but it doesn't justify a poor design.
Other Thoughts: It's hideous. ...White? ...Really? :|
Pros: Worked immediately, looks like good build quality, well priced.
Cons: Doesn't come with a side of bacon :(
Other Thoughts: I've only just started using this, but so far it works perfectly. Plug it in, works right away as intended. I saw at least one comment saying it could be cheaper, but I have not found a cheaper alternative from a brand I can trust. Too bad shipping is 50% on top of the item price, but 4.99 shipping is hardly outrageous for a courier.
