Five missing grounds, BEWARE!
on 26 December 2012
This is a substandard product, failing to work with 1 of 3 monitors tested. Further investigation revealed that it's missing five of six ground connections!
Only the DDC ground is connected up (DVI pin 15, HDMI pin 17); it's missing the four video grounds (TMDS R/G/B/clock) and the connector housing ground. While this may not affect "most" setups, it took me over an hour of debugging to figure out that my HDMI problems were caused by a cheap adapter.
Ans because the manufacturer couldn't afford to solder up 5 short lengths of wire.
