Mini DisplayPort 1.1 to VGA ACTIVE Adapter

Convert your mini DisplayPort video output to VGA for use with Eyefinity setups using this Mini DisplayPort to VGA Active Adapter from Monoprice!

Unlike passive adapters, which cannot take advantage of all the features offered by each video format, an active adapter translates the signals between the graphics card and the monitor into a form that can be fully understood by each device. This ensures that the DisplayPort circuitry in the graphics card can keep the signals to each monitor in proper synchronization in an Eyefinity setup.

This adapter is fully compatible with the DisplayPort 1.2 standard. Note that this adapter does not support audio.

Works after tweaking PC

Pros: 5-inch pigtail is just right for flexibility versus bulk.
Does the job.

Cons: None

I use this for laptop-projector at first use, I had to dig through my laptop's video card (Intel HD Graphics Family) driver settings to center the image (it was half off the screen, to the right). But now it's perfect.

Pros: Packed securely.

Cons: Did not work.

After absorbing the cost to return this item and received another unit that did not work on any system, I gave up using this item and it now resides in my junk bin.
