I bought this to use two displays at my bingo hall. For the most part, it worked well. I had been using a simple wire splitter before and this caused the brightness to drop significantly on both monitors. Adding the powered splitter, greatly improved the brightness. However, half way through the night, both monitors locked up with the image of a blurred out water bottle (no idea where this came from, as there were none in the area!). After re-seating the input cable to the box, the problem seemed to clear itself. Will need to keep a close eye on this, as my bingo audience is now very dependent on having the monitors! Hope it was just the cable connection, and not a problem with the splitter box!
PROS: easy to setup and use.. needed a gender changer to accommodate my 10-ft vga input cable, but also ordered this at the same time I ordered the splitter.
May I ask what setup you are trying to achieve? Can you describe your setup including all devices and cables in use? Have you tried switching out the cables or testing with a different computer or displays? I see you already have an RMA in place. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

This is the VGA splitter you want
This splitter does the job nicely and inexpensively, and I didn't need to auto adjust the monitors hooked to it unlike other splitters. I deployed 5 of these painlessly. If I need VGA splitting in the future I will buy these.
Needed to be able to run 35' vga from laptop to the Splitter and then split it to two projectors with 2 additional 35' vga cables. Works great with no noticeable signal degradation. Hotel wanted $105 for this service. We paid $38 including shipping, used old cables that we already had, and are ready for the next conference.
PROS: Simple, inexpensive, and does the job
CONS: an indicator light indicatin that it is on or getting power would be nice but not essential
