    Limitations But Works Great After Figuring Out

    My aim was to connect a computer monitor (which had an HDMI output) to the computer tower's video (VGA) input, so that I could free up the computer tower's HDMI input to connect the TV's HDMI output for streaming Netflix. Unfortunately, the computer monitor was NOT compatible with this product, and so I had to end up connecting the TV's HDMI output to the computer's VGA input, and THIS worked great. The reason for my four-star rating instead of a five is because of this fine detail, which does not seem to be stated in the product description. But it works great, when you use it in a compatible set up.

    I needed to connect my laptop that has a VGA output (no HDMI) to a new TV that only has HDMI (no VGA). I did a lot of online research before purchasing this item. Many reviewers gave negative comments but I decided to judge for myself and made the purchase. Glad I did. This converter works great; just as advertised. Very easy to install. An included gender bender for the VGA cable would have been nice but I was able to get a VGA extension cable that resolved the problem. Just meant I had to coil up a long cable behind the TV.

    I was looking for a 55" TV with a VGA port. After having difficulty finding one an associate told me about an adapter from VGA to HDMI. I found this one and it did not disappoint! I have a projector shoots on a screen on the front wall and now have the TV on the back wall that plays the same presentation thanks to the adapter. It has greatly improved the meeting in this room as the presenter can read off the TV on the back wall while the other people watch the presentation on the frontwall.

    I bought it to connect a computer tower to an TV that did not have a VGA connection. It works as advertised. It does not carry audio, which in my case was unimportant because the computer is for viewing data files. If you need audio, you have to use a separate audio cable. In the case of the TV I have, when in HDMI mode, it ignores audio input, so the audio would not work anyway. As I said, for my use, it works excellently. My recommendation of "Yes" bears in mind the audio limitation.

    I was looking for a large TV with a VGA port as I run a Projector on a wall in the front of a meeting room and on a large TV on the back wall. After explaining this ti the associate, He recommended an adapter that went from HDMI to VGA. After driving 30 miles and installing it i found that the adapter was not correct. I took it back with no hassle and was assisted in ordering this adapter which works perfectly!

    Packaging was very clear on how this worked. Other items don't tell you that it is VGA for the display and HDMI for the computer which doesn't help if you only have VGA on your computer. Audio connection is a bonus. Price was slightly high and considered giving it 4 staras but I got a discount and it was the only one I could find at local retailers that was VGA from computer to HDMI on display.

    It May Not Stay Connected

    The adapter works; however, if you do not have the screw holes for the VGA connection, it will fall out and the connection will be lost. I have an HP ProBook and I have this problem. I just have to be careful not to move the laptop while using the adapter.

    This is compatible with my components (PC to TV), has good instructions, easy to set up, just plugged in according to the instructions and was up and running in a very short time, hardest part was getting my plugin hand between the wall and the wall mounted TV and being able to see the port for the HDMI.
