Came in handy when there were no DVI-D to VGA adapters available at my store. I thought it would not work, but I obviously just do not know my connections very well! I used my adapter with my NVIDIA 750 TI, NVIDIA 770, and eventually, when I no longer needed the VGA monitor, with an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB. While I had my VGA-only monitor, I needed this for my three-monitor wide Surround experience. It was valuable as nowhere around my area carried these kind of adapters in store and I do not normally order online.
My only complaint was with the tightening screws. One of the screws was not seated into the proper place, and would not allow for me to fully tighten the adapter into the GPU on one side. It was not a big deal as I was not normally throwing my monitor around my room or taking the ol' rig for a walk around the block, but it would have still been nice to have a fully seated adapter. Please do keep in mind this did not ever effect my gaming. The monitor never unintentionally unplugged. The adapter was always seated and screwed in on one side, it was just not screwed in on both sides. The one unscrewed side NEVER EFFECTED MY GAMING OR COMPUTER USING EXPEREINCE.
