HDMI to DVI for Quality Video Transmission
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only industry-standard interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data. HDMI cables are intended for use with a wide range of everyday electronic components, such as computers and a home theater system’s screen. HDMI provides video, especially at high resolutions, and renders small, high-contrast details, such as text, in high quality. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a video-interface standard that provides quality transmissions on digital display devices such as flat-panel LCD computer displays and digital projectors. Audio will need to be transmitted through a separate audio cable(s) or through a fiber-optic (Toslink) cable as the DVI connector of this cable is not fitted for audio capability.

For Use with Computers, Blu-Ray Players, and Game Consoles
This cable offers optimal support for resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 and is intended to connect computers and other source components with HDMI outputs--such as Blu-Ray players or Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 game consoles--to DVI-equipped televisions or monitors.

Turn Your Computer into a Home-Theater Center
The AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable is intended to connect computers with DVI connections--such as home-theater PCs, Mac minis, and some laptops--to an HDMI-equipped HDTV, projector, or other display device.

For office professionals, you can use this cable to create quality presentations using your projector. For home users, the cable will help you turn your computer into a virtual home-entertainment center, so you can watch all your computer-based media on your home-theater screen.

Gold-Plated Connectors for Superior Conductivity
This AmazonBasics cable features shielding, a durable PVC outer layer, gold-plated HDMI A Male to DVI 24+1 Male connectors that resist corrosion while offering optimum signal transfer. To ensure compatibility, it's best to check your component product manuals to determine what kind of connections your components require.

AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable

The cable will even connect HDMI-equipped devices like Blu-Ray, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360 to a DVI-equipped monitor or TV. Other than not supporting audio, the HDMI to DVI adapter cable functions just like a high-speed HDMI cable, making it easy to enjoy serious gaming, home-theater entertainment, and more.

The cable’s extra mesh jacket (net jacket) offers an additional layer of protection and increased cut resistance to the regular cable jacket and ultimately to the inner cable. The CL2-rated cable meets fire safety codes, so it’s safe to use in or through the walls of a residential home.

HDMI to DVI for Quality Video Transmission

The industry standard for transmitting uncompressed digital data, HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) provides video, especially at high resolutions, and renders small, high-contrast details, such as text, in high quality. HDMI cables are used with a variety of everyday electronic components, including computers and home-theater screens. DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a video-interface standard that provides quality transmissions on digital display devices such as flat-panel LCD computer displays and digital projectors. By connecting HDMI to DVI with the AmazonBasics adapter cable, you get an impressively enhanced video experience on your compatible device. The DVI connector of the cable is not fitted for audio capability, however, so audio will need to be transmitted through a separate audio cable or through a fiber-optic (Toslink) cable.

Gold-Plated Connectors for Superior Conductivity

The AmazonBasics cable delivers a superior signal thanks to its durable PVC outer layer, shielding, and corrosion-resistant gold-plated connectors (HDMI A Male to DVI 24+1 Male). To ensure compatibility, check your component product manuals to determine the required connections types

I use this cord to attach a Blu Ray player to my 6 year old Toshiba projection TV (720p) which does not have HDMI ports. The picture is very good and the length of the cord allows me to run it through the top of the etertainment center, down the back, and then into the TV.

Pricing these from other big box stores found this to be about 1/3 of the price. Those store will tell you that their product is better, lasts longer, not as much heat, blah, blah. Well...
1) I see no difference in picture quality between this and more expensive brand names.
2) Heat? Off an HDMI>DVI cable. Ummmm, I have no idea what the Best Buy guy was talking about.
3) I can buy this one 3 times and still spend less money.

This is the best bet all around

Many Windows based notebooks are now equipped with VGA & HDMI ports, but no DVI port. Many external monitors are equipped with VGA & DVI ports, but no HDMI port. While the analog VGA connection works, a digital connection works better. As it happens DVI is simply a subset of the HDMI standard.

This cable works great for making digital connections from a notebook with a HDMI port to an external monitor with a DVI port.

I use to connect my PC to the TV and the length is excellent, the field is strong, however, should suggest buying "Belkin Audio Y Cable Splitter 1-Mini Plug/2-RCA Plugs (6ft)" with this, because DVI does not transmit sound only video, but in general is just what the doctor recommended me

Purchased this cable to connect a PC (DVI out) to a 1080p flat panel (HDMI in) to use the flat panel as a monitor and to watch movies from the PC (including Blu Ray). No complaint with the image quality at all, but keep in mind that this kind of setup requires separate cable(s) for sound. This cable meets/exceeds the requirements for my setup, so I recommend this cable without reservation. Don't let the low price concern you, as the quality is just fine. Seems like a major waste of money to buy a big brand name cable that would do the same thing at SEVERAL times the price. I have purchased a few of those high-end, high-price cables previously and they are very good, but I can't discern a difference in the image quality.

The cable works great. because it is a DVI connector on the back of the computer, no sound will go to the TV via this cable. I would recommend the HDMI to HDMI if you would want sound also.

I was a bit skeptical at first when I saw how inexpensive this cable was in relation to the other available choices but all I had to do was prove that the "bundled" cable that came with my device was not working properly. I also needed a cable that was a bit longer than the 6' one that I was replacing so I could hook my laptop up to my TV.

The build quality seems to be very good and as I expected, the picture quality was significantly better than the one I was replacing. No more artifact or oversaturated colors, so I'm happy.

I guess another thing that I was happy about was the "frustration free" packaging. I had looked at some more expensive cables at several local retailers and they were packaged in the impenetrable hard plastic, vulcanized shut, clamshells that need to be cut open with a scalpel, sawzall and EMT scissors. I knew I was surely saving myself an additional trip to the ER to stitch a limb back on after trying to cut open one of those crazy packaging jobs that are designed to keep honest people out. So thanks to Amazon, all I had to do was open the box, undo a twist tie and hook the cable up and it was working. No bloodletting involved.

I honestly didn't think the difference between VGA and HDMI/DVI would be this incredible.

Wow. Best $8 I've ever spent.

So really, how does a cable like this only sometimes work?? Well I have no idea and it seems that some others have experienced it as well.

Nevertheless, this cable only works part of the time. When it does work, it displays an amazing image. I use it to connect my bluray player to my older HDTV that has a DVI input and without this cable I wouldn't be able to upscale my older DVD's to 1080i. When it 'stops' working the screen goes to white noise and it requires that I have to disconnect the HDMI side and reconnect it to get the picture back (dvi side doesn't seem to be affected). The HDMI side is a new SONY blu ray player and I doubt it is the one defective (especially given some of the experiences others have with this cable).

I don't grudge this cable the manadatory first star because it does work beutifully when it does....

UPDATE: I can confirm that it is this cable that does not work properly and not any of my devices. I purchased this other cable from a different manufacturer here at amazon http://www.amazon.com/15ft-Premium-HDMI-DVI-Cable/dp/B000HDJY7K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298475107&sr=8-1 and it has worked perfectly over the last 24 hrs, whereas this one could only last about an hour or so at a time. So I highly recommend checking the other one out, it is a much thicker shielded cable as well. I wish I had purchased it to begin with.
