I'm using this as a port saver for my laptop. No point ruining a port on the laptop when I could spend $2 and ruin that instead.
It's very small...adds only .5" sticking out when plugged into my laptop. I plug a projector in and out very frequently. Unfortunately my laptop doesn't have screws to screw the port changer down, so it pulls out when I pull the vga cable out. Instead what I do is just hold onto the port saver a little, THEN pull out the vga cable, and it stays firmly plugged into my laptop.
If you have a laptop without he screw connectors (why do they not have these anymore??!?!), this will definitely be a life-saver. Takes the stress away from the laptop VGA port when connecting a high-end VGA cable and keeps the cable IN PLACE. Just awesome.
This little port saver is a great way to protect your VGA ports from being damaged. We all get in a hurry sometimes and pull connections too fast. If you do that directly to your laptop, the repair bill can be high. This little jewel can save you a bundle.
