Overview

This adapter will convert your classic VGA port to a DVI port allowing you to connect a DVI projector to a computer's VGA port.

Why spend $30 elsewhere when you can purchase this adapter for a third of the price from us?

This adapter is NOT compatible with digital (DVI-D) signals, but only for DVI-I monitors and DVI-I graphics cards that emit and accept DVI-A signals.

Pros: arrived fast

Cons: item did not work

Other: EERRRrrrrrrr!! Sewell note: Are you sure you are using this with an analog device? The adapter is DVI-A, which means that it will only work with analog devices. In order to convert a digital DVI signal to VGA (which is analog) you need an active converter, which is quite a bit more expensive. This has been the only technical problem we have seen with this adapter.

Don't get your hopes up

Pros: none

Cons: Doesn't work.

Other: If your Mac has an old VGA port and you're hoping that this little guy will allow you to use a DVI monitor, forget it, I don't know WHY it doesn't work, but it doesn't. Even with the external power supply for the DVI monitor, no luck. Even using a powered DVI-to-ADC powered adapter, no luck. Maybe it'd work on a PC—I wouldn't know. Waste of $15 for me. Sewell Note: VGA is an analog signal. DVI monitors are typically digital only. (Although DVI cables have the option to carry both digital and analog) Without an analog to digital converter a simple adapter like this will not let your analog computer drive a digital display. However if it will not work for you you can return the adapter for a refund.

Question:

Can you use this on a TV? Is there an adapter that allows you to change the connection from a VGA input to an HDMI input on the TV?


Answer:

No, this wouldn't work with a TV - this is not an active adapter that will convert a digital DVI signal to analog (VGA). It is only for analog DVI signals (DVI-A). You probably would not want to convert the input on your TV from VGA to HDMI - even though HDMI provides superior quality, converting the signal from analog to digital will cause a reduction in the quality of the picture and be worse off than just sticking with analog.

Question:

I have a 20 inch apple cinema flat screen monitor with a cinema dispay 65w power adapter. I want to use this monitor with my vga DELL computer? Is this posible with this adapter?


Answer:

In order for this adapter to work, your DVI monitor must be fully capable of using an analog VGA signal through its DVI port. A lot of monitors that have DVI ports only support digital DVI signals through that port. From the information Apple provides on those displays it would appear that they do not support a VGA signal, so this product will not work with that monitor. Your best option would probably be to add a DVI port to your Dell computer. If it's a desktop computer you can install a new internal video card that has DVI, or for a laptop i would recommend using our USB to DVI adapter.
