Startech DVI To VGA Adapter F/M Product Description
Only the best-quality components are used when StarTech.com's expert manufacturing team creates cable supplies and this adapter is no different. This DVI to VGA Display Adapter M/F is used to convert a DVI Female connector to a VGA Male connector.
It probably works, just didn't work for me. I wanted to link a very large LCD monitor to an old PCs VGA graphics output. The monitor worked fine on PCs with DVI output but not with this adapter. In the end I bought a cheap graphics card with both VGA & DVI output and that handles the monitor fine.
Just didn't work - probably not compatible rather then faulty - which is a shame - 'cos it's supposed to be 'compatible'!
