Disappointing Image Quality

As my new Dell Inspiron 15 laptop only has a HDMI output port I bought this adapter hoping to connect it to an existing 19" dell monitor that only has a VGA input. Unfortunately the image that it produced was disappointing; neither as sharp nor as bright as the monitor normally provides when connected to the desktop computer which the laptop is replacing. Testing different resolution settings on the laptop made no noticeable improvement in image quality. I then connected the laptop directly to a newer 24" Dell monitor equipped with a HDMI port using a HDMI cable. What a difference...a bright crisp image instantly! So the adapter is going back and I'll be looking for a new monitor with a HDMI input during the Boxing Day sales.

HDMI to VGA adapter

The HDMI to VGA works fine for video link. A separate cable is required for audio link.. The BestBuy on line service is top notch.

This cable works perfectly!

This cable works perfectly. The video quality on my old monitor is as good as it ever was when plugged directly into a VGA port. This VGA adapter is a great alternative for interfacing older, but still serviceable monitors with newer PC's that do not come with a VGA port on board.

wire didn't work

I bought this wire thinking it might help connecting my electronic equipment. But didnt. Probably research items if its compatible. Or put. More descriptive guidelines on items compatibility with other electronic to prevent such mistakes from happening

StarTech HDMI to VGA adapter

The adapter works fine. I set the laptop screen resolution to 1920 x 1080 and connect it to the projector without issues. The projector is around 20 feet away ceiling mounted. in a relatively large room (with 75 students). The image is not as good as a straight HTML connection (in another classroom), but it is good enough for the purpose.

image blurry

Unfortunately i will be returning this cable since the image is blurry/double on my VGA monitor. I found an HDMI to VGA converter by C2G that provides a sharp clear image.
