    Works both ways

    The packaging on this adapter says that it specifically converts a DVI output to an HDMI input, but I also wanted to point out that it works the other way as well. I used it to convert HDMI computer output to a DVI monitor input and it worked properly. I wasn't sure it would work that way when I bought it because there was also a $49 cable next to it that had HDMI and DVI ends on it and that cable's package specifically said that it worked both ways, whereas this adapter's package said that it converted "from DVI output to HDMI input," but didn't mention that it could work the other way as well.. Since I already had a DVI to DVI cable for my monitor, this adapter let me re-use that cable with my HDMI computer output and save $20 vs. buying the entire cable at $49.

    Great adapter, but not for small spaces

    I bought this adapter to use with a third computer monitor. The only available video port left on the PC is HDMI, but the monitor does not have HDMI input (Dell 1908FP). The plan was to plug this adapter into the HDMI port on the computer's video card, then connect to the monitor with ordinary DVI cable. One problem stopped this from working - the HDMI side of this adapter can't plug into the video card because the adapter is too fat. The video card HDMI port sits in between the DVI and VGA ports. A normal sized HDMI cable fits fine, but this adapter can't reach between the DVI and VGA cables. I didn't consider this possibility when I bought the thing, and of course I had to go back to the store to buy a little Male-Female HDMI extension adapter (another $20 I didn't want to spend). In the end, with the help of the extension, this adapter does a fine job allowing me to connect my third monitor to the HDMI port on my computer video card.

    Initially rec'd a factory defect- x-chg'd for same

    Unit I purchased was defective-- I believe there should be some addt'l. stability in design. -- My observation: cable head design (once attached) to this 'adaptor' unit is much too heavy-- the 'weight-bearing' part of the very much smaller adapter 'plug-in' -- is required to sport a unit that I believe is too heavy. . Within one day the adapter immediately failed at the seam. Therefore- the electrical connection from the monitor to the PC failed-- It was necessary for me to make another 120 mile round-trip into a nearer 'Best-Buy' to secure another unit. -- Unit was x-chg'd for same apparatus w/ salesperson advising me that the unit I purchased obvously was a 'factory-defect" -- I believe here must be a better, more stable way for 'design' to correct this what I call 'weight-support' issue. I remain apprehensive re. stability of the new adapter. Hope my review reaches correct 'ears'.

    Basic DVI to HDMI adapter

    So it does exactly what it is supposed to. Make sure you know what you are looking for. This adapter works for when you have a monitor with a male DVI out that you want to convert to a male HMDI out. The triangular shape of the adapter will likely block any adjacent USB ports, so if that is important, you will need to buy an HDMI extender cable (female input to male output.) For this reason, I have deducted a star, as the only reason for the shape of this adapter is sytlistic.

    While DVI is going the way of the dodo, which I'm glad this handy little device helps fill the gap when it comes to some dated technologies that can be extended for a few more years. This adapter comes in handy with a nice display that only supports DVI and VGA. This adapter helps a lot with bringing it inline with HDMI devices and works seamlessly for video only (no sound) transference to HDMI. The only drawback is the length of the product but that aside it works nicely.

    Does the job...

    I bought this adapter to extend my desktop to a second monitor. My Toshiba Radius laptop only has a HDMI port and I have a DVI/VGA monitor. The adapter works fine. However, with the HDMI port being adjacent to two USB ports, I lose the availability of a USB port next to it. This is due to the short and wide body of the adapter. Luckily, I do not have a need for both USB ports in my current setup, but someone else might! If I find that I do have a need for this USB port, I will have to find a short HDMI/HDMI cable or a full length HDMI/DVI cable.

    Works fine, but poorly designed

    Posted

    I can say that this adapter works fine for the purpose of adapting an HDMI cable to its DVI counterpart. This said, it still has some major flaws. The way this adapter is designed causes a row of metal contacts inside it tear off the circuit board as a result of the weight of the adapter and any cord attached to it, essentially rendering this device broken. To boot, the $20 price tag is exorbitantly high for something as simple as this device. In summary steer clear of this adapter and instead look for something sturdier and cheaper.

    Indispensable

    I got a nice HDMI monitor (AOC I2279VWHE) which had only HDMI and VGA connectors from Best Buy at a great price, but my PC has only DVI connectors. The Rocketfish DVI-to-HDMI adapter solved the problem inexpensively, so at a very affordable price I was successfully able to add a new HDMI monitor to my system. Without the adapter, the monitor doesn't work.with my PC, so the adapter is in fact indispensable in this instance.
