    Pros: Easy to set up: just plug it in and it works

    Cons: No problems

    Convert computer's DisplayPort output to the monitor's VGA input. We have used these adapters on several computers and they work great.

    Failed in less than 3 months

    Pros: Worked for a bit

    Cons: Died pretty quick for the price.

    This worked great for ALMOST 3 months and now the screen cuts out and you get a lot of analog static. It is currently in an unusable state. I am using this with the nVidia GTX 980ti graphics card.
