to the connections on the adapter.
Frankly I don't know if this works or not. I have 7 DVI cables and a monitor with a DVI connector. I could not get anything on the monitor with any of the cables after putting this adapter in the VGA port on two different computers. The adapter is a DVI I-dual link. The monitor is a DVI D-dual link. I had cables that fit but still got no image. I do not have another monitor with DVI input of any type to test with this. It seems like a good idea but it is unknown as far as testing. I have had very positive experiences with StarTech gear so I suspect that it is a DVI issue. Since there seems to be multiple DVI connectors, I see now why my other three monitors are all HDMI.
If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
