Connect your DisplayPort equipped PC to a 4K HDMI®, Dual Link DVI, or VGA video display using this DisplayPort 1.2a to 4K HDMI, Dual Link DVI, and VGA Passive Adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter is designed to allow you to connect an HDMI, DVI, or VGA display to a DisplayPort video output. It conforms to the DisplayPort 1.2a standard and supports HDMI resolutions up to 4K (3840x2160p) @30Hz, Dual Link DVI resolutions up to 2560x1600p @60Hz, and VGA resolutions up to 1920x1080p @60Hz.

Second review: 8 (good, but delayed due to return & replacement shipping and overpriced for my need)
Overall review: (3 + 8) / 2 = 5.5 - 6 (rounded up)
PROS: Works as described: allows use of HDMI, DVI, and VGA cables with DisplayPort. Tested 1920x1080 resolution, digital and analog, for all three inputs: HDMI, DVI-D, & VGA.
Monoprice sent a replacement product, that fixes the fault of the original, for free. The replacement product's plug fits perfectly into a DisplayPort: not too tightly requiring excessive force in removing the plug and not too loosely so as to fall out of the DisplayPort (when a HDMI/DVI/VGA cable is attached to it that hangs off the table/desk).
DisplayPort 1.2 (eg 4K resolution) was not tested as it's unnecessary for my use-case (ie I simply needed a full-size DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI/VGA adapter).
CONS: First instance fit too tightly into the DisplayPort (on 3 different laptops), so tightly that the required force to remove the adapter from a computer's DisplayPort caused the plastic casing around the DisplayPort plug to separate from the plug exposing the plug's wiring and freely sliding up and down the adapter's short cable, all after only a few removals.
Overpriced as I don't need DisplayPort 1.2 (ie 4K capability), but this is the only full-size DisplayPort (not Mini DisplayPort) to HDMI/DVI/VGA adapter Monoprice sells. Based on the Mini DisplayPort 1.0/1.1 vs 1.2a pricing, I suspect that this product could be 40% cheaper if it wasn't DisplayPort 1.2a. I would have bought two at that cheaper price which would have been a bigger purchase overall (ie 2 x $15 = $30 $25 though I realize "larger purchase" doesn't equate to "larger profit" for Monoprice).
PROS: At least it doesn't keep my monitor awake like the adapter I got from Amazon.
CONS: Not as advertised, only works up to 1080p on DVI.
VGA did not work at all.
Tried with different cables, still no good.
PROS: cool, multipurpose
CONS: doesn't drive at all supposed supported resolutions.
This adapter gives a great, high quality, picture and is very handy to have.
PROS: Does exactly what the website says.
