    Will this work with Apple TV?
    A shopper on Dec 5, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I have used it successfully with an AppleTV 2. We set this up so we could do wireless presentation (Keynote, Powerpoint, etc.) It works fine for that. I have played a few TV/movie previews from the iTunes store, which played fine. However, I have not attempted to play a full purchased movie or TV show. We are running 1024x768 resolution on an older projector. HDCP could be an issue at higher resolutions or with purchased content, I don't know (yet). But for AirPlay presentations it works just fine.
    can you use this with an HDMI to VGA adapter to get component from hdmi?

    Monoprice 3ft VGA to 3 RCA Component Video Cable (HD15 - 3-RCA)
    Monoprice 3ft VGA to 3 RCA Component Video Cable (HD15 - 3-RCA)
    BEST ANSWER: I think your proposed setup WOULD work, but probably not for HDCP protected content, like movies or TV shows. For other things out of HDMI it should work fine.
    Will this convert VGA to allow feed into an HDMI input?
    Todd K on Apr 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: NO... only works if your computer is HDMI and you have a VGA monitor...
    Some other HDMI to VGA adapters I've used only support widescreen resolutions. Specifically I need 1024x768 for an old projector. Does this adapter present old 3:4 resolutions to the source device?
    Quentin N on Mar 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: We have used it successfully at 1024x768 resolution. It is probably up to your projector settings to get the correct aspect ratio. 1024x768 is not normally a "wide screen" resolution, but as far as I can tell that has nothing to do with the adapter itself.
    Can I drive this from micro-HDMI port with an appropriate adapter cable?
    Kenneth L on Mar 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I don't suppose why not. be aware that the device ( tablet ) may not support the resolution of the VGA monitor. I tried this with my android tablet with a micro to regular HDMI cable, it did not work with the monitor that I had attached as the tablet only supported 720 or 1080.
    If I use with an hdmi splitter, followed by this converter, can I drive an HDMI screen and VGA monitor? What about resolution restrictions?
    Richard T on Jan 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes but this splitter does not do any image processing, so the signal sent to both displays will be identical in resolution and other spec. So if both your TV and your VGA monitor can handle the same signal, you should be good.
    Will this work with a VGA Adapter? For example an VGA to HDMI Adapter?

    Monoprice HDMI Extender Using Cat5e or CAT6 Cable, Extend Up to 98ft
    Monoprice HDMI Extender Using Cat5e or CAT6 Cable, Extend Up to 98ft
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It would not be recommended to extend from a converter. The added resistance on the signal could cause handshaking issues or cause too weak of a signal output. It would be best to use a powered converter or a more powerful extender such as our external powered HDBaseT extenders but it could possibly still run into issues. We do offer a 30 day return policy and you can return it should you try it out and it does not work.

    Works just as advertised
    Bought my mother in law a new low cost laptop for her birthday as all she needs it for is online browsing, email and some word / excel. Reviews were good etc and ordered it. Only after it arrived did I realize that it only has an HDMI output and no VGA output. As she's a woman in her 60's she prefers using a monitor (which we bought for her a few years before) and it does not have an HDMI input. The options were either A) buy a new monitor or B) get a conversion cable. I ordered one from amazon for $6 and it wasn't even worth that, it just plain didn't work. I ordered this one from Monoprice and within 5 minutes, the display was working on the old monitor. Similar kits sold online range from $40 and up, so at $18 here at monoprice it does the job well and the display is crisp and clear.

    Thanks Monoprice!

    PROS: Small and compact

    Easy for anyone to use

    Does what its designed to do

    CONS: None really

    Works Well
    Works as advertised. I have a Toshiba laptop with VGA and HDMI output and wanted to run dual monitors. The converter worked great and much cheaper than buying a new monitor with HDMI input. And having the small HDMI cable included is a nice touch as well.

    Highly recommended.

    PROS: Low Price, Good Quality

    CONS: None

    Happy Customer

    PROS: Monoprice was referred to me by a Office Max sales person. I had ordered a HDMI to VGA cable from another source and it did not convert the signal. It was basically a scam. Just because it has both types of connections does not mean it will work. The $4 cable was useless. The cable purchased from Monoprice came quickly and works well. It also appears to be of high quality material. I will reorder only from Monoprice from now on.

    Adapter with PI
    overall a great product- have this set up for my son's Raspberry PI, which only uses HDMI. other than having to unplug/ replug each time, it's great- I suspect that's a PI issue, and not the device. would gladly recommend....

    PROS: easy to set up and works as advertised

    CONS: we have to unplug then plug back in each time we want to use it-

    Amazing little show-saver
    I connected it between my Surface Pro 3 and an older Samsung 1680x1050 LCD, and it worked great. It picked up the EDID from the Samsung and passed it back to the SP3 which then automatically detected the correct resolution and activated the output with almost perfect pixel-for-pixel accuracy with no fine tuning required. (using a 15' micro-coax VGA cable) I noticed some of the lightest gray portions of the image were a little washed out, but definitely an acceptable image for most things - especially if you find yourself in a room without HDMI and the alternative is huddling around your laptop screen! For the size and price there is no reason not to toss one in your laptop bag.

    PROS: Exceptionally small - Low Cost - Metal casing seems really durable

    CONS: None

    Does the job
    This converter allowed me to drive an older (VGA-only) projector from a newer laptop with an HDMI output.

    PROS: Compact, rugged, worked without any adjustments

    Great Product works as advertised
    Purchased for new laptop with only HDMI output. Used for first time with an LED monitor that only has VGA input. Worked first time without any noticeable video issues.

    PROS: Required for laptops without VGA output

    CONS: None

    Included cable might be too wimpy.
    I tried this with a MacBook Pro 13" Retina (with the actual HDMI port on the machine) and the included HDMI cable was not making the setup happy. I switched to a longer but fatter HDMI cable and it worked fine. With the tiny included cable the computer would switch to the res of the monitor and then back and then try to switch again in a cycle. I suspect the actual converter was not getting enough power (from the HDMI port on the computer) to operate properly. In fact, the first time I tried it, it locked up the computer and I had to force power it off. I suppose it could be a bad cable but honestly, it's one of the thinnest HDMI cables I've ever seen.

    PROS: small, inexpensive.

    CONS: The included HDMI cable might not be the "bonus" it first appears to be. It's also too bad it's not HDCP capable but eh, it's really cheap.
