The HDMI to VGA adapter enables you to connect an HDMI output device, such as a laptop video output or digital media extender to a VGA display, monitor or projector.

Built in Audio Output
The integrated audio port on the HDMI to VGA convertor enables you to separate 2-channel analog audio for optimal sound quality.

Broad Compatibility
Compatible with your Apple TV, desktop PC, laptop or Ultrabook, the active HDMI to VGA adapter is intended for displaying user generated content such as presentations, documents and work sheets. The adapter can also extend your computer's desktop to double your workspace and increase productivity.

High-Quality Resolution
The versatile converter supports resolutions including high definition 1080p, which eliminates the expense of upgrading a VGA display for the sake of compatibility and doesn't require a separate power adapter which saves installation time and hassle.

The VGA to HDMI converter is backed by StarTech.com 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installing HD2VGAA2 adapterNice box, big price at best buy, but absolutely no instructions in the box, the provider assumes that we are all computer savvy, video works great, but what do I connect to the 3.5mm ?? and what gets connected to what appears to be a phone usb connection. a little piece of paper in the box would help a lot, or, print needs and requirements on the side of the box. This web site does not describe any direction either(not readily seen) Sorry not a smoke test kind of guy. Thanks for any effort in providing a solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good adapter not very good documentation with itOverall I am very happy with this product the video portion worked without issue for me.I plugged it in and the video worked just fine with my projector.The audio did function fine and did give me the results I was after.What I did not like was the lack of any documentation with this product.There is a micro usb on the product with no reference as to what it is for. (turns out after doing some investigating that some units may require the additional power) Now this would be nice to know before buying this device. And for those of us who need to know what every port is...I would like explanation so I dont spend time having to find an answer.Overall it works. I had no issues. Documentation is an issue as even the website did not reference.I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not working!Just received this today, as soon as I plug it onto my mac book pro, the laptop screen starts flashing, indicating it is receiving signals from the external monitor but also losing it all the time. Changed several VGA cables but no difference. Changed to apple mini DP to VGA adapter and that works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and HelpfulI have tested this adaptor with a different combination of computers, monitors and projectors without any big issues.The adapter comes in a small box the size of a cell phone but the thickness of two. The box is very difficult to open and the adapter sits in a flimsy tray within the box. The packaging was all wrecked removing the adaptor for the first time. The adapter has a VGA port on one side and the other side has a 3.5mm audio port, HDMI cable and Micro USB-B port. The adaptor says that is doesn't require any power so I am unsure why it has a USB port on. There are no included instructions in the box, on the box or on the web site to provide more information. When I first connected this adaptor to my computer I was shocked how quickly it was working. If I connected the HDMI port first to my computer then almost instantly of connecting a monitor the video and sounds were working. If I connect the VGA cable first, then audio and video start within 3 to 4 seconds as does any normal HDMI monitor. The sound and picture from this dongle were crisp, clear and without any delay. When I first played copy protected content (i.e. Netflix) the dongle stopped working and I had to disconnect then reconnect and it started working again. I have not been able to reproduce this issue since but I thought it would be worth noting. This adaptor starts working very quickly. I had doubts about converting HDMI to analog but my mind has been changed since using this adaptor. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works best with external power.My Dell and 2016 Macbook Pro work just fine with this adapter. Even passing it through a USB-C to HDMI adapter on my 2017 Macbook works. No drivers, it just works. Don't try to go over FHD though.On my Chromebook and older HDMI enabled laptops though, it required external power to be stable. I just used a small USB to mUSB cable, and it worked. Also usable with a USB charging brick (nothing major).Build is solid, but took a couple stars due to the lack of ANY documentation in the box. Most of us know to go online and look, but.... I leave this in one of our conference rooms (has a VGA projector), with the USB cable attached. No complaints from users!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not working at 1920x1200I have dual 1920x1200 VGA monitors that worked fine with a dual VGA graphics card. I now have a GTX1060 graphics card which only has HDMI outputs so I thought this device would save me from buying new monitors. The problem is that the graphics card detects the monitor as being 1920x1080, and I would have no problem even running the monitors in that mode, except that with the NVIDIA GTX 1060, and this Startech device, the display ends up going way offscreen cutting off about 250 pixels of the edge of the screen on 3 sides, so it's basically not usable. Going into the NVidia custom resolution and forcing 1920x1200 fixes things a little but no much (about 150 pixels lost on 3 sides). I have also tried playing with numerous front porch and retrace clock counts and nothing helps. If there is a way to get this device to work at 1920x1200 it certainly isn't obvious how one would go about doing that. Maybe it works with some monitor combinations, but not the ones that I have (KDS K-24MDWB)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works GreatI bought this to use at our local Junior College to tie into their audio video system from my non VGA laptop. Took off and worked like as advertised and the audio was excellent as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great video but no audio at allI bought this for my job where I need to project videos that include audio. I am not able to get any audio from the converter. Maybe I need to provide external power to solve that_

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does not appear to workJust bought this adapter to be able to connect my Raspberry Pi 3 to an Acer VGA monitor. First attempts brought no success without external power. After plugging in my cellular charger Rpi screen shown up for about 2 secs then display went black.The same happened when I connected the monitor to my decent MacBook Pro laptop.Now I'm stuck and don't know where to go now without proper documentation. Would it be possible that external power is not enough?
