Colour Name: WhiteSize Name: Type A HDMI to VGA Verified Purchase
I needed this HDMI to VGA Adapter because I purchased a 'Raspberry Pi' computer that has only composite and HDMI video outputs which are not able to feed a computer monitor directly.
The adapter has an eight inch cable terminated with a male HDMI connector that connects to the output of whatever device you are using and a standard female VGA connector on the adapter case to which the computer monitor is connected.
The adapter worked 'out of the box' with no adjustments being necessary and was recognised by the Raspberry Pi.
The output image is pin-sharp with excellent resolution, colour quality and focus.
I was surprised at the low cost of the unit and would have expected to pay far more.
If you have a Raspberry Pi and want to use it with a computer monitor then this adapter is an excellent choice.

Firstly the service provided by Amazon and it's partners was exceptional as we have come to expect.

I purchased this item to enable me to give presentations via projector with my Surface RT. The Microsoft equivalent item is expensive in comparison at £35 when this gives you the same functionality for £20.

Plugged it in and it worked first time. I have used it with both projectors and VGA monitors and it has worked flawlessly every time. It fits securely in the socket and does not get pulled out by heavyweight VGA cables.

Very pleased with the purchase.

Turned up on time, worked first time with my Raspberry Pi using a standard Blackberry 700ma charger! The Pi cannot use passive cables -this is an active one. Recommended.

I found the choice and features of micro HDMI to VGA adapters overwhelming. All I wanted was an adapter that would connect my BlackBerry Playbook to a VGA device such as a monitor or projector - for a reasonable price. This product does exactly that, with no messing about. Simply plug in and go. In addition, it was easy to order and delivered quickly and accurately. I wish all my purchases were this hassle free!

If you are planning to use this with a Retina MacBook Pro, don't, it doesn't work.
The laptop screen merely goes into a loop of flashing on and off as the laptop tries to sync to whatever external display / projector I have tried it with.
I have since bought an active HDMI to VGA converter and that works fine.
Buy cheap, buy twice...

Dispatched within a couple of days, arrived soon after in good order. Plugged in, and it worked without any setup or change in display settings required. Particularly useful as I can use it with my Raspberry Pi and output to a large 36" screen.

Received adapter quickly: product is simple, robust and do what it's done for. Plugged to an ASUS Tablet, it works perfectly on VGA displays and retro-projector. Had to plug/unplug the device from time to time but it has nothing to do with adaptor itself.
And when you consider it is nearly half the price of "official" devices, well, calculation is quickly made! :)
