The HDMITM to VGA converter converts digital HDMITM video signal to analog VGA, taking the input resolution from your device and converting it into an analog signal at the same resolution. The converter also separates the audio stream from the HDMITM signal (HDMITM LPCM 2-Channel) and converts it to analog stereo audio that can be used with the VGA display. With support for resolutions of up to 1080p, the converter is a perfect solution for connecting video cards (desktop or laptop) or consumer electronics devices such as game consoles or home theater receivers that offer an HDMITM output to a VGA display.

- good image quality
- seamless conversion
- simple design
- works great when hdmi is coming from computer (powered hdmi)
- does not work when connected to DVD/Blu ray player
The reason it does not work when connect to DVD/Blu ray player is because the HDMI connection on those devices are not designed to provide power as is the case on most HDMI connections on computers. To solve this problem the manufacturer provided a power input (5V DC) on the device. But guess what? That charger does not ship with the device!!!! You have to buy your own and make sure you get one with the right tip. You can go to Radio Shack and spend $25. Or you can try to order one off Amazon for $10 hoping it comes with the right attachment...
So here is my advice... If you are getting this to go from a powered HDMI connection from your laptop to VGA then you will probably love this little box. But if you want this to connect to a non-powered HDMI connection you should purchase a different device or make sure you have a 5V power supply that has the right connection.
I went to Radio Shack and the tip they gave me was called an "M sized" tip. The size specs are 5.5mm outer diameter and 2.1mm inner diameter. Hope this helps somebody.
In the end - it works great but just not in my case using it in a dedicated light controlled home theater. See images taken from same spot on my 115" screen. Simple black Windows desktop with mouse arrow center of screen.
EDIT: I purchased a much more expensive HDMI -> VGA converter and the SAME ISSUE. So appears it can either be something with HDCP or some sort of signal boost they are receiving. Either way you will lose contrast if you use these type of adapters in a fully light controlled room. Living room or TV you would be hard pressed to see any difference.
I HAVE to have a HUGE Multi-Core High Speed Computer System for my work (several in parallel, Actually), But "What I can Attach TO those Machines is strictly controlled (Security Reasons)... but NOT being able to find a SIMPLE, COMPATIBLE, *APPROVED*, BLU-RAY Player for it, that would ACTUALLY WORK (Without the drivers getting my Machines compromised) just got to the point of "STUPID!"
So I took a shot on buying this, since we HAVE Small "Regular 'Ol Blu-ray Players" for the Flat-Screen TV Sets sitting around all over the house...
Why not just use one of our Flat-Screens to watch Movies in my Home-Office? I have SIX computer monitors mounted on Racks, Connected to my Servers/Machines... Literally NO PLACE to put a TV Set, AND still be able to see my large Computer Monitors when I need to...
I just needed Something that would let me play a Blu-ray Movie on ONE of my Six Widescreen Computer Monitors (With a simple "VGA-Type" Connector) while I'm doing other things on the OTHER 5 Computer Screens.
So THIS TINY BOX, A TINY Blu-ray Player, a "Double Male Audio Cord" to go from this box into one of my Computers' Audio-Card's "Input Jack" (So I can Listen to the Blu-Ray Movie though my Computer's Bose Speaker-System in Dolby 7.X Surround Sound, in my Home Office), and a "Double Male, VGA-Type Monitor Cord" (Running into a Digital "VGA Switch Box", to switch ONE of my Computer Monitors back and forth to show "What's on my Computer" [if I need all 6 Monitors], or to "Watch a Blu-Ray Movie from THIS BOX connected to my Blu-Ray player")... and the problem was SOLVED!..
THIS BOX was the CHEAPEST and EASIEST part of the ENTIRE system! Once I got this box, I was ready to watch movies within 10 Minutes (and ALL of THAT time was just because I had to connect the Blu-ray player to this Box, Snake an Audio Cord to My Computer's Audio Card, Find a Digital VGA Switch Box in my "Computer Junk Box", and then find a Double Male Monitor Cord from the SAME junk box). After a YEAR of not being able to watch a simple Blu-ray movie in my home office for one stupid reason or another, I connected this box, and thought, "NO WAY THIS IS GOING TO WORK!"...
It's been working BEAUTIFULLY since DAY ONE! I'm sure the "Dots-Per-Inch-Picture-Quality-Nazies" will disagree (I have a friend who is like that; He wears Coke-Bottle-Lens Glasses, and can't legally DRIVE due to his vision, But he SWEARS he is *THE* 'picture quality' EXPERT!!!), But the Movies look just as good to ME on one of my Widescreen Computer Monitors, as they do on the Sony Wide-Screen TV Sets in our Entertainment Centers in the living room, or Bedroom! (It Actually SOUNDS better in my office, thanks to to the better "Bose" system in here ;)
It's Simple....The "HDMI Cable" from the Blu-Ray Player plugs into the back of this box. A Small Power Cord to power this box plugs in right beside THAT. On the FRONT of this tiny box, you plug in a 3.5MM Stereo Audio "Double Male Jack", which runs to the Input of one of my Computer's Sound Card (OR you can just plug a set of standard computer speakers into it, etc). Beside the Audio Cord you plug in a "Double Male Computer Monitor Cable" and run the other End of that cable to a VGA-Type Monitor. Simple as that!!!!!
I just complicated my set-up a little by adding a Digital "VGA Monitor Switch Box" so I can use 6 monitors with my Computers when I need to, and in my down-Time I can Watch a Blu-Ray Movie just by pressing a red button on a small Remote-Control "Power On/Off" transmitter that sits on my desk. Press the Button, the power to the Blu-ray Player comes on, The power to this Box comes on, the Digital "VGA Monitor Switch Box" senses the new input signal from the Blu-Ray Player ("This box", actually) and swaps my Bottom Right Monitor so that it shows "whatever is playing on the Blu-Ray Player"... Since my Blu-ray Player has Net-Flix, Amazon, etc etc etc features, I can watch THOSE on my VGA Monitor also if I want to.
It REALLY just CAN NOT Get ANY simpler than THIS! I've bought SEVERAL of these now. Our Youngest Daughter (13) has a Full-Size Bed in her Bedroom, with a LARGE "Bunk Bed" that crosses over the "Head" of her bed (Think of two Full-Sized Beds, Stacked on top of each other, but stacked in a "T" Shape, with a staircase to get to the top bunk bed, and the unit has a built in Desk, Dresser, Storage, etc). She connected a Large Flat-Screen/Wide-Screen VGA Monitor to the Bottom of the TOP Bunk Bed So she can lay in bed and look UP at it, and she uses one of these converter boxes to connect a VARIETY of her Gaming Consoles to that VGA Monitor, So she can lay in bed and play her Video Games (an Xbox One, some kind of "Wii" thingy, a Nintendo, etc)... Look, We own a Large Ranch, She works HARD around here, Plus she is a Straight "A" Student that passed her College SAT Entrance Test a few months ago and will start Engineering Classes at Clemson this Fall... She's also on the High School Color Guard Team, The Robotics Club, The Shooting Club, She has a Black Belt, and the School uses her picture on their brochures and such... etc... If she wants to lay in bed for 30 minutes (Instead of sitting in front of her TV Set) to play a video game, SHE'S EARNED IT! Either way, this box is SIMPLE and it WORKS! Nothing complicated about it. We use them on Monitors with 1600x900 Resolution, 1280x1024 Resolution, and MUCH bigger (AND SMALLER) monitors, and it works on all of them without "Stretching the Picture" so people look tall or short and squashed or whatever... it DOES "Letter box" ONE of the Older "More Strange Resolution sized Monitors" we've tried them on, But the picture quality was still GREAT.
I originally purchased one of the simple dongle-like HDMI to VGA adapters, but quickly determined its inadequacy for the task. It seems that the DELL HDMI-out does not have the power to drive my external monitor. The monitor would function, but the screen would periodically black out for a second or two, then come back. This becomes pretty tough on your productivity level. I tried lower resolutions, limiting the graphics being displayed, removing the KVM switch -- it simply came down to the converter.
I purchased this powered converter and voila, it works perfectly. No flickering, solid image - works perfectly with my KVM switch.
As a perk, my purchased unit came with the 5v AC adapter - so I didn't need to purchase the separate product (although I did). Oh well, I lost an additional $6.39 - but I'm happy that my external monitor is fully functional!
