This DisplayPort to DVI made easy!
Adapts from a DisplayPort Computer or Laptop to a DVI-D monitor/screen
Did you know that most new computers have DisplayPort outputs for video that are already compatible with HDMI, DVI and VGA? That's right! Just look for the D++ Dual-Mode logo in your user documentation. If you've got it, then converting the DisplayPort socket for use with non-Display-Port screens is as easy as this basic cable.
It's a totally passive DP lead with wide compatibility for display resolutions up to and over 1080p depending on your source and display devices. You also get DPCP compatibility for working with protected content media, and the famous Cable Chick warranty. It's great for pretty much everything short of Eyefinity.
Adapts from D++ DisplayPort source devices to work with Digital DVI-D screens for all your video needs up to a maximum of 1920x1080 resolution. This cable is not bi-directional, and does not convert DVI to DisplayPort.

DisplayPort Compatibility Note
DisplayPort (DP) cables and adapters are not bi-directional, and require a DP output which is DP++ (Dual Mode) compatible. When a DisplayPort to DVI cable is connected to a DP++ (Dual-Mode) output, the output device senses the presence of the adaptor cable and sends DVI signals over the DisplayPort connector rather than DisplayPort signals. No signal conversion is performed by the cable. DVI signals are merely passed through.

Product Review by Peter,
I dropped into your store today and picked up the Display Port Male to DVI Female Adapter and connected it to my monitor and laptop. This works perfectly - the laptop recognises that this is a separate monitor, allowing me to choose the resolution I want (currently 1440 x 900) and also allows me to extend my desktop onto this screen too.
There is no noticeable lag between the two external monitors (the other being hooked up to the laptop via the VGA connector port).
So all in all very happy with this item - wouldn't have found it without your detailed specifications listed on the product description on your website.
