DP (DisplayPort) Male to VGA Female Active Adapter
Connect your DisplayPort video output to a VGA monitor using this DisplayPort Male to VGA Female Active Adapter from Monoprice!
This active adapter draws the necessary power from the DisplayPort connection. Being an active adapter, it is suited for use in an AMD® Eyefinity multi-monitor setup. It uses a triple 10-bit, 162MHz Video DAC to covert the digital DP video to analog VGA. It provides up to 5.4Gbps bandwidth over two lanes and supports the 1920x1080p resolutions and up to 1920x1200 maximum.

PROS: Works as intended.
CONS: Expensive for an adapter, but you get what you pay for.
PROS: Cheap and they work well. The video quality is good
CONS: Brittle and bulky. Have to strain relieve or the connector wears out quickly. I have replaced multiple times on the same machine. But the price makes it not a deal breaker
PROS: Works perfectly with my Alienware M11X
PROS: Allows connecting to VGA with DisplayPort, relatively inexpensive.
CONS: I have a bench setup where I can connect via VGA 4 PCs to a single KVM. I recently acquired some Zotac ZBOX mini barebone PCs which do not have VGA outputs, but they do have HDMI and DisplayPort. Attempting to use the adapter does not output on the bench monitor. It looks like the adapter can't handle going through the KVM. I had purchased 2 of the adapters, and neither one will display through the KVM. They do work fine going directly to a monitor, however.
PROS: The Adapter worked as advertised.
