I've been looking for an affordable HDMI to VGA converter since I bought a Windows 7 tablet. The tablet, like most of them, only has an HDMI output. There are other adapters available, but they cost rather more than this! There's one from HP that will set you back nearly £70! For £14, I just had to try the Neewer adapter. It arrived this morning and was working within 5 minutes. That's it. Just plugged it and it worked! And, unlike the £100+ ones I found, you don't even need a power supply.
I still need to fiddle with the resolution settings to match up with my projector, but that's not difficult. The input and output resolutions are the same, so it's down to your PC's ability to manage different resolutions for each monitor.
There is no audio out, by the way, so that's a separate cable. For fourteen quid, you can't complain at that! You will also need to adjust the Audio Device settings in your control panel as connecting the HDMI lead switches the PC audio to HDMI - at least it does on my tablet. Not a major issue - once you know!
The description suggested that the HDMI connection is mini-HDMI, so I ordered an adapter. It says, "The micro HDMI to VGA Adapter allows for aconnection to VGA" Well, it's a full-size HDMI connector, so I didn't need the adapter. It's a minor annoyance as I'm sure I will need to connect other HDMI stuff to something else at some point. So will somebody please update the wording in the product description? Would have saved me a few quid.
So there it is, an absolute bargain. And it's really small, so you can just shove it into a pocket. (It's about 45x40x12mm - not much bigger than a box of matches)
The lack of audio and the need to play around in the Control Panel are minor things, easily overcome and entirely forgiveable at this price.
And finally, it's just as well it's easy to set up as and there are absolutley no instructions!
