I can't say the device does not work, it did not work for us. What is not indicated on the site is the video signal is uni-directional. The white labels that are not visible indicate the direction of the signal but you can't see that in the catalog. Verify the direction of your signal before purchasing.
Did not work for what I intended it for as older motherboards with VGA don't have the necessary support for this cable. So will not knock it down for this as it does work with a graphics card installed.
PROS: Great price. Worth the tryout.
CONS: Not as easily compatible as you would think.
Even though HP told me that the computer would support the cord I needed a special driver to install if compatible.... To get the driver I have to call HP and pay for a service that costs over $50.00 to get them to even assist me, couldnt even tell me the possible driver i could install myself to get it to work.... So I know I am only out $7.64 since I bought 4 for my DJ company its the principal that these are now worthless and taking up space. Unless there is someone out there that knows how to get these to work I am now working on other resolutions to solve my video split problem.
PROS: This cable is priced right and work every penny (if it worked the way I hoped)
Great quality cord
CONS: Only way to to know if it works is to buy them and try them out ($1.91)
Only works with certain VGA outputs and most computers do not come with a specification that tells you if this is compatible or not.
VGA to S-Video/RCA (Composite) Adapter Cable - Black
I didn't have too much faith in this product so I ordered two of them hoping that one would work. That wasn't the case and I am stuck with two useless VGA adapter cables.Overall, I have ordered quite a bit of different cables from Monoprice. I have not used all of them yet, but 90% of the ones I have used, they seem to be ok. There was this thin HDMI cable I ordered may be two years ago which I just took out to use last month. It did not work either.
Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 2509. Now if I may ask, what exactly were we connecting with this? This adapter is specifically used to connect the video card on a computer to a TV input. Your video card MUST be able to support s-Video or Composite out through it's VGA port; this is known as a TV out function. In either case, a shame this didn't work out for your needs.. Sorry again for the trouble and should you have any questions/concerns, don't hesitate to contact us!
