    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.

    Didn't expect much, but was very pleasantly surprised.
    I've heard many bad things about these active adapters, so I wasn't expecting much when the item first arrived, other than the general ability to display on my monitor.
    I wanted to see how bad it was, so I took two monitors, identical model, identical settings, and both DVI and VGA inputs, and tested it. I tested several configurations, including active adapter vs native vga/passive adapter and active adapter vs native DVI, and the results I found were very pleasantly surprising. Not only did it outpace the passive VGA adapter in the lagom.nl/lcd-test latency timer photo comparison, but it also outpaced DVI, to my jaw-dropped levels of surprise. I will buy another one if the need arises and am glad that my favorite monitor of seven years can last me for another year or so of gaming, with my RX 480.

    Display port adpt
    Got a new PC with display ports for the video and used two of the adaptors for my old monitors. Just plugged them in and works perfect.

    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

    Solid product
    Have only been using these for a week, but we've had zero issues with them working. Great product, esp. at this price point. Would buy again (as long as they hold up for at least a year or two!).

    Works well
    I needed to send output to a second display which only had a VGA port. This was just what I needed and it worked great, even with a 50' VGA cable attached.
