DP (DisplayPort) Male to VGA Female Active Adapter
Connect your DisplayPort video output to a VGA monitor using this DisplayPort Male to VGA Female Active Adapter from Monoprice!
This active adapter draws the necessary power from the DisplayPort connection. Being an active adapter, it is suited for use in an AMD® Eyefinity multi-monitor setup. It uses a triple 10-bit, 162MHz Video DAC to covert the digital DP video to analog VGA. It provides up to 5.4Gbps bandwidth over two lanes and supports the 1920x1080p resolutions and up to 1920x1200 maximum.

CONS: After the order was shipped i found the same thing cheaper on Amazon.
PROS: The Adapter worked as advertised.
Monoprice orders are usually RECEIVED on second or third day after order placed That's a12 rating.
PROS: The part works just fine and thanks to it I am now able to use a very old LCD with a spanking new PC at work.
CONS: None I can think of.
The only problem is that right out of the connector, the adapter tapers outward to a very bulky stance. In doing so, it blocked my HDMI output right next to it. I needed to then buy an HDMI elbow joint in order to route it immediately downward so I could plug in a cable.
The adapter itself works great and is well made.
PROS: Works as intended. Well constructed
CONS: Bulky, blocked other port
CONS: Could be a bit narrower? (I think it's actually the other video connectors that are a bit wide, but the three side-by-side are very tight)
