Finally, a super-compact and inexpensive way to connect your HDMI laptop or coputer to a VGA projector or monitor!
No let's get one thing straight - this little beast is a converter despite what the name may suggest. You see, HDMI is a modern digital connection, while VGA is analogue and dates right back to the 70s. So there's no native compatibility for getting a HDMI video source to a VGA display... and that's likely the dilemma which brought you here.
But semantics aside, this little gizmo looks like a regular passive 'adapter', but actually has powerful processing inside to convert your digital video signals, into high quality analogue VGA video! Just be sure to grab a quality VGA cable to complete the rest of your connection from this adapter to your display.
Other than that, this little beauty is plug & play, and as simple as it gets with no other cables to power or support the adapter.
Test Results: Our testing has shown this unit to be reliable for resolutions of up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) using a 2m VGA cable. Please note that if used with additional adaptors, converters or long VGA cables the resolution output may be limited. If you need high quality VGA signal over longer distances, we highly recommend our Powered HDMI to VGA Converter.
