4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality and Works as Expected, 8 July 2013

This review is from: HDMI TO VGA with Audio Converter Cable Adapter for PC Desktops Laptops Power-Free, Raspberry Pi, MHL support - Black (Electronics)
Despite being quite cheap, the cable/converter is reasonably good quality, feels sturdy. Most importantly it produces perfect audio and video output from a 1080p HDMI source.

I am currently using it with my model A raspberry pi. It took a little bit of trial and error to get the config.txt exactly right with the desired resolution and sound options. It works great with both high res vga monitors and my 800x600 Epson projector.

The only issue I have had after a few months of use is with the amount of power the converter requires. I use a 3A powered USB hub to power the pi. The only peripheral plugged into the hub is an Edimax 7811UN wifi adapter. If I plug the wifi adapter directly into the Pi's usb port, the Pi will not boot up.
