PRODUCT LISTING IS VERY DECEPTIVE IN MY OPINION
on February 9, 2014
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!
