FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

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.
