DVI DVI-D Dual Link Male To VGA Adapter For HDTV LCD
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Misled 03/21/2014

This review is from: DVI DVI-D Dual Link Male To VGA Adapter For HDTV LCD

Pros: Does what it is made for

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was confused about some three-monitor setup restrictions with one graphics card.

I have an HIS Radeon HD6950. This card has output of DVI-I, DVI-D Dual Link, HDMI, and 2 mini-DP ports. I have an extra VGA cable, and the DVI-I and HDMI are currently used, so I purchased this specific adapter to use for the DVI-D Dual Link adapter.

IMPORTANT: DVI-D Dual Link only ports will NOT accept an analog signal adapted without an ACTIVE adapter. This is because it needs to convert the signal a bit before it reaches the graphics card so it works properly.

So, what happens is, it all connects but it acts like the third one cable isn't connected because it won't read the data.


Someone in the "Leo the Tech Guy" chatroom assisted me and what I wound up able to do was this. Instead of having to get another graphics card for the third monitor, I had to use the mini-DP ports. I only have HDMI and VGA in from the monitors, so I bought (from newegg) the HIS Model HMDPHDMIA Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter. This allows me to use the mini-DP port and an HDMI cable to the monitor.

Pros: Thin, Lightweight, and Great resolution with good viewing angle as well. I read reviews on most low cost monitors and viewing angle seemed to be the highest issue and this has great angle.

Cons: No HDMI. I knew this but just figured I'd put it in the review. Also it does not come with a DVI converter, but my graphics card came with one so I just used that.

Other Thoughts: I ordered two of these refurbished, one was absolutely perfect like no one had used it, but the other was cracked big time and I have RMA'd it. Will update review once I receive the second one.

Cons: Had to thread the screws into the fan, but once secure they work perfectly fine.
