StarTech's Eve, Disposable Adapters
on November 9, 2017
My company purchased a bunch of these. They're basically disposable adapters. We connected on from an Intel NUC to a 22-inch Asus monitor, it worked until we had to move the computer to a different desk and monitor. After that, the monitor just kept flashing on that no signal was detected. We thought that maybe the computer wouldn't POST, so we did some troubleshooting. I was able to ping it, so we swapped monitors. That didn't work, so we swapped HDMI cables. Finally, we swapped the adapter. Wouldn't you know, it worked again. We figured "oh, there's always a defective one in the batch," and went about our day.
Flash forward an hour, we had to move the computer again. Same thing happened. We replaced the adapter again, and it started working again. I'm now afraid to move the computer, as I've used more adapters than I have pairs of underwear in the last 24 hours. Save yourself some money and get a better brand.
