PROS: The splitter measures up to the specs. It does everything it is supposed to. Well made, sturdy splitter.
CONS: The only drawback is that the video signal power gets split also leaving a slightly dimmer image on my CPU monitor. The TV screen lighting intensity seems sufficient. An A/B VGA video switch would have been a better choice, but I am making do very nicely.
This is a simple one-to-two splitter for a basic VGA port on any computer. Plug it into your computer's 15-pin VGA output and connect two monitors, or a monitor and a projector (as I am doing). It works.
PROS: Inexpensive. No software, no external power required.
Make sure you run both conenctions out when you have this cable/splitter in place... otherwise, you will get ghosting on the single monitor you have connected. With two output sources connected, this is NOT an issue at all.
PROS: Image on both screens is nearly indiscernible from single display (in color, brightness, and sharpness).
I run a Karaoke business and needed a way to split the graphics and text to both a 17" Samsung flat screen monitor and a 52" LCD HDTV. This splitter allowed me to do just that!
I have the splitter connected to the VGA output of my laptop and then I connected two 15' VGA cables from the splitter to the monitor and HDTV using their VGA inputs . It works perfectly with no signal loss whatsoever!
Once again, the quality of this splitter is astounding. I always believe that you get what you pay for. In this case, actually with everything I've bought from MonoPrice.com, you get more then what you pay for. I don't know how they do it. But they have a customer for life.
Unlike cable splitters that I had ordered previously, this one works perfectly. The ends of the RGB cables that this connects to screws in tightly and keeps them as one solid unit. My other (double cable type of) splitter can't screw together tightly, but I have to duct tape them together for security.
This splitter also keeps a high resoluton to my 32" Tv monitor
PROS: holds RGB cables together tightly as one unit.
This splitter is intended for those whom have a low resolution VGA output (usually 800X600 MAX) that needs to be cloned onto another monitor. Works with higher resolution but has a ghosting image that is extremely annoying. For the price, it's not bad for a tech's toolbox.
This splitter is passive so expect some signal loss. It's not that apparent across 2 LCD monitors but we tried using it with LCD projectors where the brightness really matters. The picture quality degrades when 2 devices (LCD and Projector) are both connected to an unacceptable level for some.
