Gave me the ability to drive a monitor with a DVI-D digital socket from an HDMI laptop output,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: StarTech 8 inch HDMI Male to DVI-D Female Video Cable Adapter (Electronics)
This is was exactly what I wanted. My Dell XPS 14z has 1 x HDMI socket and 1 x mini DisplayPort (DP). I had two Dell 20 inch monitors that could be fed with either VGA (blue plug) or DVI-D (white plugs). What to do?
I bought this item to convert the HDMI to DVI-D then used a standard DVI-D monitor/projector cable to go from this to the monitor.
I also bought a "StarTech Mini DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter Converter" to convert the output of the Mini DP to DVI-D (separately reviewed).
This item arrived quickly and properly packed and has worked perfectly in this application since.
