    Will this Product #2675 work for plugging in a VGA monitor to a DVI switch, along with Product # 5910 (DVI-A to SVGA cable, https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=102&cp_id=10209&cs_id=1020905&p_id=5910&seq=1&format=2) ?
    Product #5910 DVI-A to SVGA cable will not fit into my DVI switch. Will it fit into the female end of this adapter? If so will the signal work?

    If not, then would Product #2397 (https://www.monoprice.com/product?c_id=104&cp_id=10419&cs_id=1041903&p_id=2397&seq=1&format=2&res=1) work for connecting a VGA monitor to a DVI-to-DVI cable I have that fits my DVI switch?

    This is NOT an analog to digital converter ($$$), just a cable adapter
    This is NOT designed to convert an analog signal into a digital signal. That would cost a lot more money and would not fit into an item this size. Notice especially where it says DVI-A in the title, that means analog over a DVI cable. (A brief DVI primer. DVI is the connector style, DVI-D will only carry digital information, DVI-A will only carry analog information, DVI-I will carry both. ONLY A DVI-A OR DVI-I CABLE WILL WORK WITH THIS. You can tell the cable will work if it has 2 pins on top and two pins below the large flat blade pin on the one side of the connector, those are the analog pins)

    This would be used if you have an LCD screen that accepts analog signals, but only has a DVI-I connector for input (no 15 pin VGA), and a computer that only has an analog 15 pin VGA output (common for server motherboards with on board video). So it would be LCD with DVI-I input port - DVI-I or DVI-A cable - this adapter - computer with VGA port.

    In the same scenario to use a VGA cable instead of a DVI-I or DVI-D cable, use Product ID#2396 and plug it directly into the LCD. So it would be LCD with DVI-I input port - #2396 - VGA cable - computer with VGA port.

    Excellent technical assistance
    I learned a lot from Monoprice's outstanding technical support team. I was confused about connecting my computer's analog VGA output to my monitor's DVI input. I initially purchased a VGA to DVI converter, which it turned out worked fine, but initially I couldn't get it to work because I was trying to use the converter with a digital only DVI-d to DVI-d cable. That cable failed because it didn't have wires to connect the analog signal from the converter. Once we got that figured out I bought the right part, a VGA to DVI-a cable, and now it's working great! Thanks!

    PROS: Great customer service

    CONS: None

    My mistake
    I tried to hook up my lcd monitor (dvi output) to my vga video card (i know, old school, but still works). it didn't work. i guess i got the wrong dvi - vga connector. didn't know there was a difference. silly me didn't look to check the back of the monitor (under the pop off cover) before making the purchase. there was already a vga out on the monitor (had both dvi and vga option - thanks viewsonic) so i had no need for this connector

    PROS: Looks nice

    CONS: Didn't work for me - probably my mistake

    Necessary adapter
    Bought this for our department's CADLab projector. Monoprice had the right adapter at the right price. Also, the equipment was here well in-advance of when we were slated to go online we were up and running when we'd planned. Thanks!

    PROS: Great connectors, great price

    Spend more money and get one that works from a local store.

    PROS: Would have solved a small problem i had for running a 2 monitor set up.

    CONS: The product did not work when it arrived at my house. It was to cheap to waste money sending it back or to waste my time trying to get a replacement.

    DVI-A Female Adapter
    I accidently ordered the wrong item for what I was looking for. However, I was still able to put it to use. I used it for a different project I was working on. Great price. Love the gold plated ending.

    Works great
    I kept finding adapter that went the other way only...DVI to VGA...you would think they would work both ways, but I needed this and works very well.

    Exactly what it said on the tin
    Exactly what I needed. Does what it needs to do. Shipping was a bit high for the price, but that was also expected.
