I upgraded my system and decided that I should upgrade my cables in the process. Besides, I also wanted to use the HDMI connector and avoid a possible signal degradation issue when using an adapter.

This cable has a very well-built feel to it, nice feeling materials. It connects well with the extended screw grips in the DVI side, and the HDMI side plugs in firmly and stays where it's put. I like the matching blue ends to help identify these connectors among the dozens I have due to the several systems behind my desk.

I use this cable to switch between multiple connections on my monitor and it's working great for that purpuse. I can switch to the VGA port to use my KVM and support several systems there, or back to my DVI port and this system. It allows me great flexibility in chosing which device uses the monitor at the time. The length is about right for placing a system on the floor behind a desk and them reaching up to a monitor that's mounted on a arm system like I have. It's long enough that I can swing the arms around and nothing binds. See my other reviews if you are considering a monitor mount as there's a nice one for a good price on Amazon too.

This BlueRigger cable is pretty thick, has a sturdy build quality with gold plated solid connectors. It supports Full HD (1080p) content and the output picture quality is seriously awesome. A Great Buy, 100% recommended.

If you don't know -- as I didn't -- the V in DVI is for Video, whereas the M in HDMI is for Media. The difference is the audio. Connecting this as I did, to the DVI port on my computer and an HDMI port on a TV, does transmit the video signal correctly, but DVI is video-only, whereas HDMI includes both video and audio, so a separate audio interface is necessary.

I'd like to emphasize that this is not a shortcoming of this cable in any way, but if you're trying to do what I did, be warned about the audio aspect.

This is a review of BlueRigger's High Speed HDMI to DVI Adater Cable ~6'.

First off you should know although this cable's DVI end appears to be DVI-D dual link, it is NOT. It is single link. HDMI is single link. There is no such thing as dual link involving an HDMI cable including this cable. That means the maximum resolution with this cable is only 1920 x 1080.

This cable is also NOT high speed as advertised. Dual link is high speed DVI, which is ~9.9 Gbps. Single link DVI maximum speed is 4.95 Gbps. That means the maximum speed of this cable is 4.95 Gbps, which is not high speed DVI.

This cable also does not work with all devices, so I recommend being careful where you purchase it from in case you need to return it. It would not work with my AMD video card and ViewSonic monitor. I received a "no signal" error. An HDMI > HDMI or DVI > DVI cable would be a better sure bet.

Cable appears to be 28 AWG.

Be careful out there shopping. Test what you get to ensure the cable does what it says it does! Return it if it does not.

Keep in mind with BlueRigger, there is no phone to contact them. All contact including technical support is by email. I sure didn't think I'd need tech support, but I did!

I'm using this adapter cable to go from a dvi connector on my computer graphics card to a plasma tv HDMI input. The picture is amazing campared with the s-video I was using before. Sound is not output with this so you have to add cables for the sound.

I originally planned to use this to connect my son's PC (w/DVI port) to his TV (HDMI in). However, I found out that I needed it for my new PC (w/HDMI out) to connect to my monitor (DVI in). It works both ways! The BlueRigger cable appears to be very high quality, the cable is thick, and the connectors are at least partially metal. It looks great, too, and is a great bargain.

It's kind of hard to review a cable, but here we go. With a product like this, you really only want one thing: for it to work. If that's how you measure success, then this product succeeds.

The cable fits snugly on both sides, and it gives me a nice, crisp signal. The blue connectors could potentially annoy some people because they stick out in a world of black plugs and connectors, but I for one enjoy the change of pace in terms of color.

One other thing I like about the cable is its thickness. I've ordered some bargain-bin HDMIs from Amazon, and while they work perfectly, I don't like how thin they are. Something about the thickness of this wire is reassuring. It feels durable and quality---like I got something very nice and expensive, but I know that I didn't pay much for it.

Cable length is as advertised: plenty of length to run from a laptop down and around a desk to an external monitor so that the cable is hidden.

In short, buy this cable and love it!

I got this to attach my alienware m11x to my desktop monitor while I was reformatting my desktop and to use when I travel (that 11" screen can be tiny!). This cable was significantly cheaper than any other I saw, and 1/2 the price of the cheap display port ones so I went with it.

The cable quality is awesome, and the length is good enough for me to keep the laptop on a nearby table if I need to.

My only issue is that the DVI connection side is very loose, meaning you have to screw it in. This isn't bad if you're keeping it as a permanent connection, but is a little annoying for me. The extra 10 seconds to screw it in is worth saving so much money though. The HDMI side also feels a bit wobbly in the socket, but the connection seems fine, but if you have something with downward facing HDMI it could be an issue.

I highly recommend this cable, as it feels durable and is so cheap.

The BlueRigger adapter cable takes care of getting digital quality restored to your DVI monitor without being forced to use analog VGA if you recently purchased a new PC. I'm at a loss as to why many PC companies didn't eliminate the VGA adapter on the on-board video instead of giving the user the choice of DVI or HDMI. DVI was the standard for a number of years when it came to monitors. VGA was never very good when compared to digital. I generally buy high end monitors to ensure a good picture and years of reliability. I wasn't about to upgrade a perfectly good monitor. My cable adapter had a problem with quality control however. The HDMI plug was loose from the start. I initially had purchased a Tripp Lite DVI-F/HDMI-M adapter but it was big and bulky and covered 2 of my USB ports making them unusable. The cable setup is sleek and neat and did the conversion for the same price without getting in the way. I know the problem I had was with the cable rather than the on-board video port because the Tripp Lite setup fit tight and never came loose. A gentle squeeze with my Leatherman on the HDMI end of the cable tightened it up and it stayed in with no further problems. I wouldn't recommend this since it is possible to break the insulating plastic inside the metal plug (and possibly damaging your on-board video socket). I gave it 3 stars because I have no way of knowing if this was a fluke problem or if all the BlueRigger cables are loose on the HDMI end. Also, you don't get sound with an adapter conversion but the adapters are intended to restore only the video, not give you ALL the advantages of HDMI.
