    Is this a hdmi connection for the computer and a vga connection for the monitor?
    Clifton D on Jan 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, this is not HDMI connection to the computer. This is DisplayPort 1.2a to computer. DisplayPort is not the same as HDMI.

    Excellent product
    Convert computer's DisplayPort output to the monitor's VGA input. We have used these adapters on several computers and they work great.

    PROS: Easy to set up: just plug it in and it works

    CONS: No problems

    Failed in less than 3 months
    This worked great for ALMOST 3 months and now the screen cuts out and you get a lot of analog static. It is currently in an unusable state. I am using this with the nVidia GTX 980ti graphics card.

    PROS: Worked for a bit

    CONS: Died pretty quick for the price.
