VGA to DVI Converter

Worked first try, no issues. Seems compatible with all of the normal video modes and follows them just fine as the Linux server switches from text to framebuffer to X11.
I use it for 1920x1200x60Hz to a 25.5" ASUS monitor.
Quality through the adapter is slightly better than VGA directly to the monitor was, probably due to the much shorter VGA cable that this makes possible.
Did not use the included 1.2m cable purchased a shorter 18" cable from monoprice at the same time, to keep the analog signal path as short as possible. Once it passes through the converter, it's all digital, so cable lengths on the output side don't really matter (within reason).
Excellent product, but pricey.
PROS: Just plug it in and it works.
Same kind of circuitry as found inside most digital displays with VGA inputs.
Handles video mode switching just like any monitor would.
No fuss. Sturdy metal case.
CONS: Expensive. Very expensive.
Included PSU is an old-style power hungry transformer type. Ugh. This _is_ 2011, folks.
PROS: Solid construction, fast shipping, not too large.
CONS: Didn't work for me
PROS: Solid contruction, shipped fast
CONS: Didn't work but...
