This relates to the previous question from Sept 18, 2017: So do I understand that this adapter WILL take a DisplayPort OUTPUT from the computer and convert it to a DVI-D INPUT signal for a monitor (without requiring some active solution)?
I purchased a couple of these and the adapter really sticks out a great deal. you hit the computer at all and the image drops and you need to take out and reinsert the adapter. It's very loose. I feel like I dont hit it and it also loses the image. I would not recommend.

Great price and works like a champ. No issues. Shipping took a bit but worth the wait.
We are deploying hundreds of Lenovo M700 Tiny's globally. They only have DP outputs. In order to hook up to our legacy monitors (HP ProDisplay P221 and Samsung SyncMaster B2230), we needed a DP/DVI adapter. This adapter was tested up to FHD/1080p resolutions (1920x1080), and they worked without issue. We saw no problems associated with syncing, refresh, display artifacts, etc.
I have had one of these for several years, and I have to say that it may have saved me several hundred dollars today. Having not purchased longer cables to accommodate a new sit-stand desk, I accidentally had a cable snag, which put pressure on the monitor and computer, but the adapter split apart instead saving me a $200+ monitor purchase and a $300+ graphics card purchase. So, even if it is a little flimsy, it has been a safe connection and one that will break instead of breaking your devices. The adapter has worked great to convert a displayport signal into my DVI (single) monitor. I even discovered that it takes care of the wonky plug-n-play behavior of DP that makes the monitor disappear despite being connected to a DP card, the DVI monitor doesn't disappear from device manager.
PROS: - A surprisingly effective fail-point - Maintains a solid connection under normal operation - Behaves like a DVI connection, not like a DP connection
CONS: - Sags a bit when connected horizontally, and would be nicer if it had a wire inline to reduce stress on any DP device plugs.
if dvi cable "hangs" from adapter, it is common for these to apply pressure/ torque or leverage which causes the adapter to fail. then the button will not depress to disengage the barbs and the adapter will become "stuck" in the pc. be very careful when using this not to move or wiggle the cable/adapter. we have 5 and three have broken in two different machines.
PROS: Works as described. No other real adapters out there like this one.
CONS: flimsy design. many of our adapters have "broken"
