Overall Review: The price is unbeatable for what you get. The EL effect It both beautiful and functional, the three magnetic adapters make it so I can use it with all three of my phones, from the oldest legacy to the most recent usb type c. A lot of times you get a product from China and never know what to expect, but this one has no real flaws that I can discern.

Displayport DP Male To DVI HDMI VGA Audio Female Adapter Display Port Cable,DP to DVI/VGA/HDMI/Audio Cable Adapter, 1080P Male to Female Splitter Converter for Dell HP Lenovo Asus HDTV

Pros: Really neat 'all in one' design, great concept. Basically "works" but not quite, see below:

Cons: There are glitchy screen artifacts sometimes, basically scan lines, flickering. I tired plugging and unplugging several times, also tired different display ports, never really went away but is sometimes better than others. Worst thing though, it says it supports 1920x1200 resolution... but that doesn't seem to be true. The highest I can get it to go is 1920x1080 :( which really sucks on my bigger display because it messes up the aspect ratio: forcing it to be 16:9 instead of the native 16:10. Also, it seems to prevent my video card from identifying whatever monitor it is connected through, so the claims that it is 'passive' I think are false.

Overall Review: Bottom line, I am pretty dissatisfied.

32GB microSDHC Flash Card
32GB microSDHC Flash Card

Overall Review: I ordered three of these, and all three were defective. They would struggle to mount, then work for a few minutes, then wouldn't mount at all the next time I tried to use them. I tried a bunch of different things to make sure it was the cards and not the reader or adapter I was using, but all my other cards were still working fine. It's not worth the hassle to return $20 worth of cards, but I'm very disappointed as it's the first time I've ever had an experience with defective flash memory.

Exactly what I was looking for

Coboc CL-AD-DP2DVI-BK Compact Design DisplayPort to DVI-I Passive Adapter Converter,Gold Plated,Black -Latching DP to DVI-I - 1920 x 1200 Resolution

Pros: - Works with my weird 1920 x 1200 display setup. - As simple as can be

Cons: - None honestly

Overall Review: I'm writing this review specifically because I previous ordered another adapter from a different manufacturer and it DID NOT support 1920 x 1200 despite saying that it did. It was also not truly passive, despite saying that it was. This adapter however is exactly what I was hoping it would be. Truly passive and DOES support atypical resolutions like 1920 x 1200. Overall I think it is just a solid product. I noticed some other people were complaining about the build quality, but honestly I don't see it. It's plenty solid unless you're being an idiot and abusing it.

flawless
