Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Works exactly as advertised I've had mine for 3 months now with no problems.
Pabber
This active Displayport to single-link DVI adapter is recommended by AMD for use in Eyefinity setups, and it works as advertised.
Joseph Maurer
I emailed Startech's support and will update this review if they are able to solve the problem.

After reading some reviews on my graphic card and ordering the wrong connector the first time I then purchased this connector. I have 2 monitors running directly from my graphic card and wanted to add a 3rd. The only remaining connections were the d-sub and HMDI but my card only allows 3 monintors using display port. This connector worked perfectly and cost a lot less than the other ACTIVE ADAPTERs I found. The key for my set up was having an "Active Adapter"

I bought this to hook up a third monitor for Eyefinity, but I didn't do enough research.

This is a passive adapter, it will not work for Eyefinity, although worked fine if you just want to hook up a monitor for normal display. You need an Active adapter for Eyefinity. I ended up getting this instead: model B087B-005B - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004071ZX0/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

Style Name: DVISize Name: Adapter Verified Purchase
This works great..plugged in and instantly had my 4th display working with no issues at all.

I see several people stating that this will not work with a 3rd or 4th monitor. Well that is just computer hardware ignorance. The ability of this plug to work with 2+ monitors has nothing to do with the cable. It all depends on your graphics card.

Most lower end cards will only support 2 active displays, I have an Nvidia 660 Ti GTX model which allows up to 4 active displays (2x DVI, 1x HDMI and 1x Display port) I had 3 monitors working off the 2 dvi and 1 HDMI..i got this converter to add the 4th display. Many lower end cards will have the 2 standard DVI / VGA ports and a 3rd option for HDMI or display port. This DOES NOT mean your card can run 3 displays unless its spec-ed for it. it is simply an alternative option to the 2x DVI/VGA. I hope this may help clear it up for future buyers of this product.

Check your graphics card specs as this is the ONLY factor in allowing you to add a 2+ monitor setup without using a 3rd party program. I would advise against those to begin with.

I have already ordered an addition one of these. Great converter for the price.

I use this adapter to connect a Lenovo T420 laptop to an LG monitor. The laptop only has VGA and Display Port outputs and the LG monitor only accepts VGA or DVI inputs. I used the analog VGA route for a while, but the display was fuzzy especially for text. The display is noticeably clearer when using this digital adapter.

Ordered some quick-ship Dell computers with dual port video (VGA & Display Port). Since you can't really adjust the video card options of these quick-ship models, it was nice (and cheaper) to simply get some of these adapters. Just plug-n-go. Worked like a champ.

I was trying to run 3 monitors on one video card and found I needed an active adapter. After reading the reviews here I ordered one and have been quite happy. Be sure to get a DVI cable though as this adapter is only about 6" long!

When i ordered my new laptop and docking station i didn't pay attention to the fact that it had a special video output. The StarTech cable works perfectly and I would recomend it to anyone that needs to convert HDMI to DisplayPort that Dell seams to love so much.

I first bought the DisplyPort to DVI Passive adapter from StarTech and it didn't work with my Asus Z77 Sabertooth motherboard, then I ordered the StarTech DisplayPort to DVI Active adapter and it worked perfectly.
