Update: make sure that when you use it you plug the USB port because it loses a lot of power and always seat it properly. It does work without the micro USB cable but at a point since the Pi 3 uses a lot of power, you will need it because otherwise it shuts off and you won't see anything. It happened to me just now so I'm charging it so I can use it again.
Windows 10 Pro 64bit Toshiba laptop that already has two monitors via an Anker docking station. No gaming use, but do run CyberLink's Power Director editing and producing videos with no issues. Plays Youtube and other videos no problem.
Bought 3 different kinds and this brand/model is most reliable for my Toshiba laptop to recognize and display second screen images. In fairness, have an Anker docking station with two video ports (VGA and HDMI), so a lot going on already before I put this into the laptop's own HDMI socket.
Actually like it being two pieces with a cord inbetween - we travel a lot and easier to find in my bag than the single piece models.
It has female threads allowing you to screw the VGA connector from the monitor securely into the adapter.
HDMI connector fits well in laptop socket.
Sometimes not recognized - but per above multiple monitors running via different adapters already.
This seems to fix that, creating an HDMI to audio adapter, even though that is not completely it's intended use.
I'll admit, I haven't tested the full setup yet, but I assume I will probably need the included cable to power the adaptor. EDIT: I do not! Hdmi to audio conversion gets enough power from the hdmi cable. I honestly wish I could add an extra star to my rating.
Please note: you will likely need to adjust your screen resolution when pluging this device in for the first time. A triffle annoying, but nothing deserving a score reduction
Last winter I was at a conference when my HDMI-VGA conversion started fritzing out, and later it fell apart in my hand. I decided never to get another one that screwed together, if I could help it, and the Ugreen adapter appealed to me because it looked like it wouldn't repeat the performance of the bad one.
I bought a Ugreen and have been happy with it. So happy that now that I'm teaching overseas, I started to get a little anxious about what would happen if I lost the adapter. As a result, I've ordered and just received my second Ugreen adapter to have as a (justincaseIlosethefirstone backup). They wrote to me and asked if everything had arrived okay (bulk-generated email), and I decided to follow the link and tell about my experience. I can only recommend this unit very highly (and now I have two).
With any HDMI-to-VGA, you can run into trouble with how the audio is going to leave the computer. The computer rightly senses that it should be sending sound out the HDMI port rather than the headphones jack. The Ugreen adapter has a stereo output jack that usually solves this pretty cleanly. Sometimes the computer thinks it should still be sending audio out the headphones jack, but that's a computer problem and not an adapter problem.
1. J5Create JCA374 Docking station to add HDMI output (it also feeds power back to laptop via USB-C)
2. UGreen HDMI to VGA Converter with Audio attached to HDMI out from docking station
3. UGreen supplied power cord to self supplied USB-A charger block to AC power
4. Old Computer speaker pair plugged into AC power (via another self supplied USB-A charger block)
5. Speaker stereo input plug into the UGreen audio jack.
6. Old VGA male to male cable connected to old Samsung VGA screen
7. Samsung screen to AC power
8. VGA male connector to UGreen female port.
Summary: four AC power sources (Screen, Speakers, UGreen adapter, Laptop)
two self supplied USB-A charge blocks (leftovers from old phones, etc)
Samsung VGA screen - no audio with female connector
Male-male VGA cable
Old desktop stereo computer speaker pair
All works (for now; first day).
Make sure you understand which way you need to adapt relative to the computer output. HDMI to VGA, not VGA to HDMI.
Upon doing this, and rebooting, the display worked.

Esta complejidad del producto provoca que un pequeño defecto impida la reproducción de un color, o que la señal se vuelva inestable. Por eso hay tantos cables conversores que dejan de funcionar al poco tiempo, sobre todo si la instalación/manipulación no es la adecuada. Antes de adquirir este producto, he tenido que devolver otros dos HDMI-VGA de otras marcas porque o no funcionaba el audio, o distorsionaba la imagen, o directamente no se veía nada.
a) El video se ve perfectamente, nítido y claro.
b) El cable tiene una entrada USB que permite alimentarse con un extra de energía. Es un punto importante para mi Raspberry Pi, porque los adaptadores que utiliza no son especialmente potentes (5v y 2,5-3a) y a menudo suele provocar una falta de potencia en la placa.
c) El cable tiene una salida de audio de buena calidad. Se oye muy bien.
El mismo que otros cables: SON DELICADOS, manipúlalos con cuidado. Trata de ponerlos en horizontal, sin que el peso provoque tirones. Tampoco los retuerzas, porque si no, a la larga se estropeará o perderá calidad. Lo ideal es que el cable esté recto y no soporte pesos excesivos.
Actualizaré dentro de unos meses, para ver qué tal la durabilidad del producto, pero de momento todo perfecto.
I wanted to make a complete super-cheap multimedia station, mostly to prove it's cheaper and better to get a real screen than trying to scavenge a laptop screen and bind it to an adapter board (these babies sell for around 40€ without the screen!), or even these tiny 7" screens with crappy resolution. As explained above, I have proven both the Raspberry Pi and the 19" screen work perfectly, they just don't match.
A few years back, I had seen adapters with the same functionality as this UGreen HDMI->VGA adapter, but they would cost around 60€ at the time, with serious feature limitations.
Good surprise from Amazon, it took less than 36 hours to get it delivered to my door, but that's a luxury that costs a pretty penny.
My first attempt plugging the Raspberry Pi to the monitor using this adapter was a total failure, the video signal was never detected, the screen remained desperately blank (not quite, there was a bouncing box saying "no signal"). I was quite convinced I had bought another piece of junk, but at that price, I could afford the loss with no fuss.
Then I realised the (provided) USB cable might have some use when I saw other models of a similar device had a DC-IN 5V plug instead of the USB. And that was it. It works almost perfectly. The picture is crisp and clear with absolutely no flickering, it really looks like a "native" digital picture, despite the multiple conversions between analog and digital signals. Thus, for a Raspberry Pi (and probably other devices), you have to power the adapter through USB.
I had found other issues, but they were due to the monitor not able to support the resolution (the image was shifted to the left) and a continuous electronic background noise generated by the Pi itself at a keep-awake signal for some devices. Both issues were solved by upgrading to version 8.0.3 of OpenELEC.
All in all, this product is perfect to make Raspberry Pi stations (including LibreElec and RetroPie) very (very much) affordable. It does the job so perfectly you'll just forget about it, and that's exactly what you want with this type of devices.
This does not have this problem! It works perfectly! Really nice crisp image quality and the sound off of the 3.5mm jack is nice too, no buzzing sound while using it.
However, I will mention, when the input source connected to the adapter goes off, there is a loud buzzing sound generated by the device. Using this with my PS3, I solved the problem by switching off the PS3's power at the back when not in use.
All in all, I'm amazed with the quality of this device for the price.
