    Sun 13W3-M to HD15-F (VGA) Video Port Adapter

    Connect an older Sun computer system with the 13W3 connector to a newer monitor with an HD15 VGA connector using this simple adapter. Alternatively, this adapter, in conjunction with PID 70, can be used to connect a Sun monitor to a Sun system, using a standard HD15 VGA Male to Female extension cable.

    The adapter has a male 13W3 plug for connecting to the Sun computer's video output and a female HD15 plug for connecting to the VGA cable from a standard VGA/SVGA monitor. Each end features plastic thumbscrews for securing the adapter to the device.

    Note that this adapter is specifically designed for the pinout of the Sun systems and will not work properly with other 13W3 connectors, such as those from older Apple, SGI, or NeXT systems, which used the same connector with a different pinout configuration.

    Pros: Small

    Cons: None

    Works as expected and it should. I wish I could say the same about the old workstation I'm using it on.

    Connects Sun Monitor to VGA Device

    Pros: Well constructed

    I wanted to connect my MacBook Pro to the 13w3 input on a Sun 24" monitor.
    Using the Mini DisplayPort Thunderbolt to VGA Adapter from monoprice , this adapter and a standard Male to Male VGA cable it worked.

    I had tried to use the HD15 Male to 13W3 Male(Sun) Cable - 6FT but that did not work.
    Monoprice customer service was very helpful, send me a replacement but no luck.
    I suspect that the Sun monitor has a different pinout.

    The good news is the Sun 13W3-M to HD15-F (VGA) Video Port Adapter worked.

    This is working for me on a Sun Blade 1000. It protrudes out from the back of a box especially with the monitor cable attached. I did have to actually screw it in (rather than simply plug it in) to obtain a good reliable connection. Now I can use a modern lcd monitor instead of that giant heavy crt.
