Questions and Answers
PROS: This inexpensive adapter allowed me to convert an expensive DVI cord to HDMI, allowing the use another much-needed HD digital input to my TV.
CONS: Through no fault of the converter, DVI cables and connectors are larger, and heavier, than HDMI. This means that to maintain a secure connection, you may have to prop up your DVI cable on something, like the shelf the connected unit sits on, to take some of the weight off of the connection.
PROS: Worked Great and was not $40 dollars.
Like the description says it's DVI-D, so you can only attach a true digital device to it unlike a DVI-I plug. So you couldn't use this in conjunction with a DVI male to 15 pin female adapter to get 2 VGA monitors working on your computer.
PROS: Price, quality
CONS: On the Dell computers we install these in (and I assume other brands would be similar) the HDMI port is very close to the VGA port. We use these for dual monitors so we need something plugged into both. These adapters crowd the VGA plug so we have to remove the screw on the VGA connector closest to the HDMI to make them both fit nicely.
The brick-and-mortar, surprisingly, was selling a very similar adapter for $34.
Not only was this 10X cheaper, but it was shorter than the other adapter, making for a much better fit in my audio rack.
One nice thing about the version from the brick and mortar, though their liberal return policy meant I could enjoy my new Blu-Ray player while waiting for my Monoproce replacement to arrive. :)
PROS: Cheap, flexible, no quality degradation
CONS: No way to get the audio out
PROS: -Not expensive
-Small and compact
PROS: Cheap, and does the job.
