StarTech.com DVIVGAFM DVI to VGA Cable Adapter - F/M


If purchasing this make sure you have a cable and a monitor that is appropriate


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.
