Chromebook compatible . . . but with issues I searched high and low for various converters that would enable my Chromebook to connect to the VGA input on an LCD projector. There are dozens of products out there that seem like they might work, but don't. In contrast, this device works like a charm. That written, the Chromebook video translation is clunky. In short, the Chromebook operating system is unwieldy in an LCD environment. At first, 1/3 of the screen is monopolized by the top browser controls and the icons at the bottom of the screen; this is way too much real estate. As it turns out, there is a on screen command that removes the oversized controls, but discovering its location is counter intuitive. While the text within the browser is also too large, it can be adjusted using the zoom function. That written, it too is clunky when it comes to opening and closing multiple browser windows. Another concern is the extended desktop environment. As is, the user must face the projection surface to operate the computer. While this has potential benefits, there should be an option to turn this function off so that the presenter can actually face the audience. To put the system together, the user will need a VGA cable and a HDMI cable along with this $32.00 converter. In the end, this RoHS converter works perfectly as it enables the Samsung Chromebook (3G, 11.6-Inch) to connect to an LCD projector. The image resolution and stability is excellent. That written, the Chromebook engineers clearly didn't have this use in mind. The Chromebook works great as a personal computer. It's a fantastic, reasonably priced web surfer. However, when it comes to projecting an image to a screen, I'm discouraged enough to go back to using a good ol' fashioned laptop. 5Plays HDMI sources (such as apple TV) to older monitors. Video is excellent, Audio is acceptable. This unit was a tad more expensive than other HDMI to VGA converters, and there is a reason:It is easy to use a VGA supplied signal and convert it to HDMI output. (and in that case it's only video) However to go from an HDMI source to a VGA output it requires some digital conversion. This box does that!The Pros:HDMI streaming boxes like crhomecasts, apple TV, rook, Firestick, can play to older VGA hardware (a.k.a. expensive 2007 epson projector in my case)Video quality is greatThe cons:The audio quality could be better. (I needed to add some EQ treatment to add clarity to the sound because it was a bit muffled and some dialogue was difficult to understand before I did).Note: Sound output is stereo. (hence 3.5mm jack) so it's easy to pair with almost any sound output. (I'm not sure if there's a digital sound output version that improves upon the sound)Overall, I know I made the right choice, and there are few options to choose from. It saves me the considerable expense of buying a new projector. 4Works with Computer but Not DVD/Blu ray without power cable This item worked pretty well. It seemed to take the digital signal and turn it to analog just fine without much visual quality loss.Pros:- good image quality- seamless conversion- simple design- works great when hdmi is coming from computer (powered hdmi)Cons:- does not work when connected to DVD/Blu ray playerThe reason it does not work when connect to DVD/Blu ray player is because the HDMI connection on those devices are not designed to provide power as is the case on most HDMI connections on computers. To solve this problem the manufacturer provided a power input (5V DC) on the device. But guess what? That charger does not ship with the device!!!! You have to buy your own and make sure you get one with the right tip. You can go to Radio Shack and spend $25. Or you can try to order one off Amazon for $10 hoping it comes with the right attachment...So here is my advice... If you are getting this to go from a powered HDMI connection from your laptop to VGA then you will probably love this little box. But if you want this to connect to a non-powered HDMI connection you should purchase a different device or make sure you have a 5V power supply that has the right connection.I went to Radio Shack and the tip they gave me was called an "M sized" tip. The size specs are 5.5mm outer diameter and 2.1mm inner diameter. Hope this helps somebody. 4Works perfectly for me. I am running a DELL Inspiron 15 laptop and Windows 7. Since DELL replaced the VGA output with an HDMI-out, I needed an adapter to use my external 27" monitor (1920x1080) as an extended desktop.I originally purchased one of the simple dongle-like HDMI to VGA adapters, but quickly determined its inadequacy for the task. It seems that the DELL HDMI-out does not have the power to drive my external monitor. The monitor would function, but the screen would periodically black out for a second or two, then come back. This becomes pretty tough on your productivity level. I tried lower resolutions, limiting the graphics being displayed, removing the KVM switch -- it simply came down to the converter.I purchased this powered converter and voila, it works perfectly. No flickering, solid image - works perfectly with my KVM switch.As a perk, my purchased unit came with the 5v AC adapter - so I didn't need to purchase the separate product (although I did). Oh well, I lost an additional $6.39 - but I'm happy that my external monitor is fully functional! 5Works great to couple my Kindle HDX 8.9" to a XGA projector I just bought! I bought mine from seller "Electronemo" and it came boxed with the power supply and some instructions. The item I got was marked as a WickedHD on the case, but had exactly the same specs as on the product page and worked like a champ.I recently purchased a refurbished ViewSonic PJD6221 XGA DLP Projector ($159 delivered) and needed to feed it HDMI using a NETGEAR Push2TV to connect wirelessly with a Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". The ViewSonic PJD6221 doesn't have a HDMI port, but it does have 2 VGA ports. So I plugged the HDMI cable from the Push2TV into this HDMI converter, then I plugged the converter into the projector using the VGA cable. Using a RCA to 3/8" stereo cable, I connected the audio out from the converter into the projector as well. I used power supplies for both the Push2TV and the HDMI converter as I was not confident that powering only one or the other (or neither) would work.Once I turned on the projector and got a screen, I powered up the HDMI converter. Then I powered up the Push2TV and instantly there was the Push2TV greeting screen telling me it was waiting for a connection. Firing up the Kindle and turning on the display mirroring resulted in the Kindle screen on the projector, looking and sounding good! The projector saw it as a HD video input and knew how to handle the HD signal.I also tested this HDMI converter box with an Asus Transformer tablet using a direct HDMI connection (rather than the wireless setup with the Push2TV) and that worked perfect, with both the video and audio signals being decoded properly. The projector treated this as a 720 HD video signal and it looked and sounded great on the projector as well.I'm pretty happy with this HDMI converter. Projectors that have HDMI inputs start at double or more than what I paid for this projector (with all the other specs being the same, such as XGA resolution, 2500-2700 lumens, etc). It was a WHOLE lot cheaper buying this adapter for $16 and getting the projector for under $160! 5Works like a charm! I was glad I did my homework on this one, there seams to be a lot of confusion going around. I have an older projector that doesn't have HDMI. My projector doesn't have this style of VGA connector either but what I do have is an analog DVI-M1a connector. My style of DVI connector is a bit uncommon but the projector came with an adapter to connect to a computer with VGA and USB. This little baby here connects to my existing adapter and the USB cord just hangs there. If I wanted to connect a computer with HDMI, the USB would let the projector remote control the mouse.After searching high and low, this finally allows me to connect any HDMI device to my projector and run the 1/8" audio to my sterio system for the sound. YAY! :)Many similar devices and adapters have the wrong connectors. Most others seam to have male HDMI when all of your standard cables are double-male. That simply doesn't work but this one got it right! 5Why not just use one of our Flat-Screens towatch Movies in my Home-Office This is one of those things that I thought would be TOO SIMPLE TO WORK! But got VERY pleasantly surprised by!I HAVE to have a HUGE Multi-Core High Speed Computer System for my work (several in parallel, Actually), But "What I can Attach TO those Machines is strictly controlled (Security Reasons)... but NOT being able to find a SIMPLE, COMPATIBLE, *APPROVED*, BLU-RAY Player for it, that would ACTUALLY WORK (Without the drivers getting my Machines compromised) just got to the point of "STUPID!"So I took a shot on buying this, since we HAVE Small "Regular 'Ol Blu-ray Players" for the Flat-Screen TV Sets sitting around all over the house...Why not just use one of our Flat-Screens to watch Movies in my Home-Office? I have SIX computer monitors mounted on Racks, Connected to my Servers/Machines... Literally NO PLACE to put a TV Set, AND still be able to see my large Computer Monitors when I need to...I just needed Something that would let me play a Blu-ray Movie on ONE of my Six Widescreen Computer Monitors (With a simple "VGA-Type" Connector) while I'm doing other things on the OTHER 5 Computer Screens.So THIS TINY BOX, A TINY Blu-ray Player, a "Double Male Audio Cord" to go from this box into one of my Computers' Audio-Card's "Input Jack" (So I can Listen to the Blu-Ray Movie though my Computer's Bose Speaker-System in Dolby 7.X Surround Sound, in my Home Office), and a "Double Male, VGA-Type Monitor Cord" (Running into a Digital "VGA Switch Box", to switch ONE of my Computer Monitors back and forth to show "What's on my Computer" [if I need all 6 Monitors], or to "Watch a Blu-Ray Movie from THIS BOX connected to my Blu-Ray player")... and the problem was SOLVED!..THIS BOX was the CHEAPEST and EASIEST part of the ENTIRE system! Once I got this box, I was ready to watch movies within 10 Minutes (and ALL of THAT time was just because I had to connect the Blu-ray player to this Box, Snake an Audio Cord to My Computer's Audio Card, Find a Digital VGA Switch Box in my "Computer Junk Box", and then find a Double Male Monitor Cord from the SAME junk box). After a YEAR of not being able to watch a simple Blu-ray movie in my home office for one stupid reason or another, I connected this box, and thought, "NO WAY THIS IS GOING TO WORK!"...It's been working BEAUTIFULLY since DAY ONE! I'm sure the "Dots-Per-Inch-Picture-Quality-Nazies" will disagree (I have a friend who is like that; He wears Coke-Bottle-Lens Glasses, and can't legally DRIVE due to his vision, But he SWEARS he is *THE* 'picture quality' EXPERT!!!), But the Movies look just as good to ME on one of my Widescreen Computer Monitors, as they do on the Sony Wide-Screen TV Sets in our Entertainment Centers in the living room, or Bedroom! (It Actually SOUNDS better in my office, thanks to to the better "Bose" system in here ;)It's Simple....The "HDMI Cable" from the Blu-Ray Player plugs into the back of this box. A Small Power Cord to power this box plugs in right beside THAT. On the FRONT of this tiny box, you plug in a 3.5MM Stereo Audio "Double Male Jack", which runs to the Input of one of my Computer's Sound Card (OR you can just plug a set of standard computer speakers into it, etc). Beside the Audio Cord you plug in a "Double Male Computer Monitor Cable" and run the other End of that cable to a VGA-Type Monitor. Simple as that!!!!!I just complicated my set-up a little by adding a Digital "VGA Monitor Switch Box" so I can use 6 monitors with my Computers when I need to, and in my down-Time I can Watch a Blu-Ray Movie just by pressing a red button on a small Remote-Control "Power On/Off" transmitter that sits on my desk. Press the Button, the power to the Blu-ray Player comes on, The power to this Box comes on, the Digital "VGA Monitor Switch Box" senses the new input signal from the Blu-Ray Player ("This box", actually) and swaps my Bottom Right Monitor so that it shows "whatever is playing on the Blu-Ray Player"... Since my Blu-ray Player has Net-Flix, Amazon, etc etc etc features, I can watch THOSE on my VGA Monitor also if I want to.It REALLY just CAN NOT Get ANY simpler than THIS! I've bought SEVERAL of these now. Our Youngest Daughter (13) has a Full-Size Bed in her Bedroom, with a LARGE "Bunk Bed" that crosses over the "Head" of her bed (Think of two Full-Sized Beds, Stacked on top of each other, but stacked in a "T" Shape, with a staircase to get to the top bunk bed, and the unit has a built in Desk, Dresser, Storage, etc). She connected a Large Flat-Screen/Wide-Screen VGA Monitor to the Bottom of the TOP Bunk Bed So she can lay in bed and look UP at it, and she uses one of these converter boxes to connect a VARIETY of her Gaming Consoles to that VGA Monitor, So she can lay in bed and play her Video Games (an Xbox One, some kind of "Wii" thingy, a Nintendo, etc)... Look, We own a Large Ranch, She works HARD around here, Plus she is a Straight "A" Student that passed her College SAT Entrance Test a few months ago and will start Engineering Classes at Clemson this Fall... She's also on the High School Color Guard Team, The Robotics Club, The Shooting Club, She has a Black Belt, and the School uses her picture on their brochures and such... etc... If she wants to lay in bed for 30 minutes (Instead of sitting in front of her TV Set) to play a video game, SHE'S EARNED IT! Either way, this box is SIMPLE and it WORKS! Nothing complicated about it. We use them on Monitors with 1600x900 Resolution, 1280x1024 Resolution, and MUCH bigger (AND SMALLER) monitors, and it works on all of them without "Stretching the Picture" so people look tall or short and squashed or whatever... it DOES "Letter box" ONE of the Older "More Strange Resolution sized Monitors" we've tried them on, But the picture quality was still GREAT. 5Didn't work for my situation I have had this for 6+ months, just took it out of the box yesterday. We have a 150' run of vga cable and a 150' run of RCA cable going to our auditorium projectors. HDMI is not an option at this time. Using this VGA converter, the projectors could see a signal coming in on the vga cables, but didn't recognize the signal format. I now wonder if it had to do with the Blu-Ray looking for the HDCP license Maybe I'll try a hdmi splitter to circumvent HDCP and try again later when I have some spare time. Until then, I failed back to using a HDMI to RCA converter which is currently working fine. 3Works fine but loss of contrast is a problem for home theater. Although it works as described there is a problem if you plan on using It for a home theater. I have an Epson 6030ub with bad HDMI ports so I'm using VGA through the laptop. It looks great but wanted to using my existing HDMI from the front of my room then convert HDMI to VGA at the projector. What happens is this adapter introduces a grey glow on any once-black images. Which means movies have very low contrast. I tested the adapter with two blu ray players and a laptop. Also tested with a new shorter HDMI bypassing the longer cable. I had the same issue with a grey low contrast screen. So I connected the laptop to projector with just a simple VGA cable and looks perfect.In the end - it works great but just not in my case using it in a dedicated light controlled home theater. See images taken from same spot on my 115" screen. Simple black Windows desktop with mouse arrow center of screen.EDIT: I purchased a much more expensive HDMI -> VGA converter and the SAME ISSUE. So appears it can either be something with HDCP or some sort of signal boost they are receiving. Either way you will lose contrast if you use these type of adapters in a fully light controlled room. Living room or TV you would be hard pressed to see any difference. 4Not good for retro PCs I got this to connect an old 486 PC with a Chips and Technologies VLB 65545 VGA adapter. Granted, this product does not advertise the older resolutions or text mode resolutions, but neither do modern LCD monitors that still work with 700x400, 320x200, etc.This product CANNOT display BIOS or DOS screens. It can't handle old text mode resolutions. 320x200 did not work either. 640x480 was passable, but not centered. 1024x768 was severely off-center and image quality was very poor. Holding down the button for 5 seconds as the manual says does not resolve the issues.1024x768 is one of the supported resolution, so I returned this item. 1

I'm sure the "Dots-Per-Inch-Picture-Quality-Nazies" will disagree (I have a friend who is like that; He wears Coke-Bottle-Lens Glasses, and can't legally DRIVE due to his vision, But he SWEARS he is *THE* 'picture quality' EXPERT!!!), But the Movies look just as good to ME on one of my Widescreen Computer Monitors, as they do on the Sony Wide-Screen TV Sets in our Entertainment Centers in the living room, or Bedroom! (It Actually SOUNDS better in my office, thanks to to the better "Bose" system in here ;)It's Simple....The "HDMI Cable" from the Blu-Ray Player plugs into the back of this box. A Small Power Cord to power this box plugs in right beside THAT. On the FRONT of this tiny box, you plug in a 3.5MM Stereo Audio "Double Male Jack", which runs to the Input of one of my Computer's Sound Card (OR you can just plug a set of standard computer speakers into it, etc). Beside the Audio Cord you plug in a "Double Male Computer Monitor Cable" and run the other End of that cable to a VGA-Type Monitor. Simple as that!!!!!I just complicated my set-up a little by adding a Digital "VGA Monitor Switch Box" so I can use 6 monitors with my Computers when I need to, and in my down-Time I can Watch a Blu-Ray Movie just by pressing a red button on a small Remote-Control "Power On/Off" transmitter that sits on my desk. Press the Button, the power to the Blu-ray Player comes on, The power to this Box comes on, the Digital "VGA Monitor Switch Box" senses the new input signal from the Blu-Ray Player ("This box", actually) and swaps my Bottom Right Monitor so that it shows "whatever is playing on the Blu-Ray Player"... Since my Blu-ray Player has Net-Flix, Amazon, etc etc etc features, I can watch THOSE on my VGA Monitor also if I want to.It REALLY just CAN NOT Get ANY simpler than THIS! I've bought SEVERAL of these now. Our Youngest Daughter (13) has a Full-Size Bed in her Bedroom, with a LARGE "Bunk Bed" that crosses over the "Head" of her bed (Think of two Full-Sized Beds, Stacked on top of each other, but stacked in a "T" Shape, with a staircase to get to the top bunk bed, and the unit has a built in Desk, Dresser, Storage, etc). She connected a Large Flat-Screen/Wide-Screen VGA Monitor to the Bottom of the TOP Bunk Bed So she can lay in bed and look UP at it, and she uses one of these converter boxes to connect a VARIETY of her Gaming Consoles to that VGA Monitor, So she can lay in bed and play her Video Games (an Xbox One, some kind of "Wii" thingy, a Nintendo, etc)... Look, We own a Large Ranch, She works HARD around here, Plus she is a Straight "A" Student that passed her College SAT Entrance Test a few months ago and will start Engineering Classes at Clemson this Fall... She's also on the High School Color Guard Team, The Robotics Club, The Shooting Club, She has a Black Belt, and the School uses her picture on their brochures and such... etc... If she wants to lay in bed for 30 minutes (Instead of sitting in front of her TV Set) to play a video game, SHE'S EARNED IT! Either way, this box is SIMPLE and it WORKS! Nothing complicated about it. We use them on Monitors with 1600x900 Resolution, 1280x1024 Resolution, and MUCH bigger (AND SMALLER) monitors, and it works on all of them without "Stretching the Picture" so people look tall or short and squashed or whatever... it DOES "Letter box" ONE of the Older "More Strange Resolution sized Monitors" we've tried them on, But the picture quality was still GREAT. 5Didn't work for my situation I have had this for 6+ months, just took it out of the box yesterday. We have a 150' run of vga cable and a 150' run of RCA cable going to our auditorium projectors. HDMI is not an option at this time. Using this VGA converter, the projectors could see a signal coming in on the vga cables, but didn't recognize the signal format. I now wonder if it had to do with the Blu-Ray looking for the HDCP license Maybe I'll try a hdmi splitter to circumvent HDCP and try again later when I have some spare time. Until then, I failed back to using a HDMI to RCA converter which is currently working fine. 3Works fine but loss of contrast is a problem for home theater. Although it works as described there is a problem if you plan on using It for a home theater. I have an Epson 6030ub with bad HDMI ports so I'm using VGA through the laptop. It looks great but wanted to using my existing HDMI from the front of my room then convert HDMI to VGA at the projector. What happens is this adapter introduces a grey glow on any once-black images. Which means movies have very low contrast. I tested the adapter with two blu ray players and a laptop. Also tested with a new shorter HDMI bypassing the longer cable. I had the same issue with a grey low contrast screen. So I connected the laptop to projector with just a simple VGA cable and looks perfect.In the end - it works great but just not in my case using it in a dedicated light controlled home theater. See images taken from same spot on my 115" screen. Simple black Windows desktop with mouse arrow center of screen.EDIT: I purchased a much more expensive HDMI -> VGA converter and the SAME ISSUE. So appears it can either be something with HDCP or some sort of signal boost they are receiving. Either way you will lose contrast if you use these type of adapters in a fully light controlled room. Living room or TV you would be hard pressed to see any difference. 4Not good for retro PCs I got this to connect an old 486 PC with a Chips and Technologies VLB 65545 VGA adapter. Granted, this product does not advertise the older resolutions or text mode resolutions, but neither do modern LCD monitors that still work with 700x400, 320x200, etc.This product CANNOT display BIOS or DOS screens. It can't handle old text mode resolutions. 320x200 did not work either. 640x480 was passable, but not centered. 1024x768 was severely off-center and image quality was very poor. Holding down the button for 5 seconds as the manual says does not resolve the issues.1024x768 is one of the supported resolution, so I returned this item. 1
