AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI Adapter Cable
Enhance your gaming or home-theater system with this AmazonBasics HDMI to DVI adapter cable. Because it’s backwards compatible with DVI-D and DVI-I signals, the cable can be used to connect your computer or DVI-equipped device to an HDMI-equipped HDTV or display. Watch videos from your laptop on your large-screen HDTV--or the other way around. 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 was looking for a cord for Raspberry pi 2 to plug into an older monitor that did not have an HDMI port. I was not looking to watch movies on the monitor just mainly do some programming work. I came across this product which has a HDMI to a DVI connector. I bought the 6 foot version of this product. The cable feels thick and the end connectors feel solid. The cable connected to the raspberry pi was able to deliver 1080i output to the monitor. The price of this cable vs going to Best Buy was easily 1/3 of the price. The cable does what it's supposed to and I am satisfied with my purchase. I am giving the product five stars as the price was very good and the cable feels well built.
It comes in the AmazonBasics Packaging and was like the packaging described, frustration-free. I did some quick research as to whether the VGA to HDMI or DVI was better, and wanted to help potential buyers make their decision on which one would be better for them. DVI has in the span of time, come out more recently than VGA, and overall from the articles that I read concluded that DVI was king, now at least over VGA due to VGA being analog, and should be avoided unless that is your only option.
DVI, though does not carry audio, but being computer monitor's don't usually have speakers as well, especially in the lower price ranges, so this was a perfect choice. Coming in at 6 Feet, I knew it would be sufficient for my room, connecting my laptop to the monitor was a short distance, but connecting my Xbox to my monitor was another problem, but this was cutting it close, but still managed to connect it which was impressive.
Overall, I can recommend this DVI to HDMI adapter cable by AmazonBasics, due to its reliability, and expected high-quality. If you are wondering if this will work with your computer, then feel free to ask a question and comment, and I will try to answer it, with my limited knowledge.
I was looking for a way to easily connect my work laptop to my dual flat screen monitors at home. My monitors have 1 HDMI/1 DVI each and my personal computer was already using DVI. My work computer port replicator had 2-DVI connections as well so I bought these cables and they worked without any issues.
However, I wasn't sure if this would work before hand and I wasn't finding answers while skimming through the comments(or missed them) and they are:
1. Will the computer/monitor recognize each other without issue?
Yes, the monitors I have are ASUS VS247 - the monitor auto detects signal and switches to the active connection automatically. The laptop using Windows 7 Enterprise instantly recognizes the monitors as well, the PC is able to see that the monitors are ASUS so there's some communication occurring not just a dumb connection/default resolution - this is good.
2. Will there be resolution/quality issues?
No, it appears the monitor/PC are able to communicate and I'm able to use full supported resolution without issue - I was worried that the resolution would be funky.
For me everything worked seamlessly as if I was using a native DVI to DVI or HDMI to HDMI cable. I don't have any issues at all and have been using these cables for at least a good month now. The price is definitely affordable and cheaper than buying switches (which I was looking at but are very expensive).
On that note if you are in a similar situation, instead of buying a switch to share the same keyboard/mouse between my personal PC/Work PC I simply bought the Amazon Basics Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Combo for my work computer. When I'm not using my work computer I hide the wireless combo and switch the monitors over to the DVI connection. No switching cables, etc.
I suspect most are simply going to buying these cables due to not having the right connections available and so in that regard these do the job perfectly.
