        I purchased two of these and they did exactly what they were supposed to do, but they do not have an scaling options, so from what I could tell, if your HDMI input was a 1920x1080 image, it leaves the resolution the same, just converts it to a VGA signal. That's fine for some applications, but I needed something that could convert and scale, I was able to find a product that would do that, but it was about $100 more than these.

        It works as described. But I had issues with the quality. It made everything look slightly out of focus. It hurt my eyes trying to read anything on the monitors. I used this in a professional setup. Connected to a standard 1024x768 monitor and tried it on our projectors. It did not make a single sharp image. I bought a different brand and have success. Honestly I don't even recommend this for home use. But your setup may work better with this device than mine did. For the price it may be worth a try.I returned to get a different brand.

          Purchased this for an older projector that does not have an HDMI input. Tried a non-powered device that did not work - video flickered on and off. This device (powered) had no issues playing a copy-protected DVD. Would reccomend.

                I purchased a tablet for the primary use of projecting PPT files in class without lugging a laptop around. I had been shopping (purchasing and promptly returning) other converters that lacked power supplies, ranging from much less to around the same cost, and they were all detected by the tablet but sent no signal to the projector. This is the first one that worked for me and is truly an answer to my prayers.

This product worked perfectly out of the box with no configuration changes. Have used KanexPro HDMI to DVI before but first experience with this device. Would definitely recommend.

                              The HDVGARL is a neat little interface that takes HDMI and converts it to VGA DB-15 and a pair of audio RCA outputs. This functionality was only previously available in large expensive video switchers. I find it ideal for integrating my Panasonic AVCHD video camera into the aging XGA church multi-media projection system. I can now get HD quality images instead of SD. Small in size, you can throw it into your camera bag. Small in price, it doesn't dent your budget. Works exactly as advertised.

                                  Simple and straight forward tool.

                                  Used this to convert DVD HDMI output to VGA so that can be projected to a projector (no HDMI input).

                                  Would be great if it comes with non-US adapter for the power supply (Asia user).

                                    Did everything it advertised, easy pezy, quick and easy!

                                    I got this device to allow me to use my new Apple TV box, which only puts out HDMI, and the Projector I have at home is not HDMI compatible but has VGA input but no audio out put, this box allowed me to split out the stereo and route to my amp. Works great!

                                      Comments about KanexPro HDMI to VGA with Audio Converter:

                                      I was looking for a compact, simple design that would allow me to take it easily in my briefcase. Operation is easy and provides excellent HDMI conversion so I can connect my ultra modern technology Dell XPS to the less than modern systems at the university.
