    Doesn't work. I read in a forum today that a non powered converter won't work. Wish I would have read that before I bought this. However, I read in another thread that you can get these to work by modifying some file on the SD card. I'll give that a try. If that doesn't work, i'll probably return it cuz I have no other use for it. Hope this helps someone.

    This is the first converter out of three that worked with NO changes to Raspberry Pi Debian Wheezy version software. It is a fantastic buy and recommend it to Amateur Radio Operators for use with G4KLX software. No changes to the ./root config needed. I am buying more shortly. Thanks! Dennis

    This is the way to go if you want to connect a VGA monitor to the Raspberry Pi. I tried the less expensive HDMI to DVI to VGA, and it did not work because there was not a conversion from digital to analog. This slightly more expensive method does that and the monitor works great.

    Item arrived on time in perfect condition. Weeks later I noticed a similar item with the added feature of a jack to output audio from the HDMI data. The items, I think, were very close in price, and I've ordered two of the newer ones but am also content with this lesser model. I would like to suggest that Raspberry Pi users look for the updated adapter that provides the added HDMI audio output, as the Pi seems to provide better audio that way. I am happy shopping with this merchant and will shop here again.

    Overall: 4.5 out of 5

    Having two old CRT VGA monitors on my desk and no TV set with HDMI or NTSC nearby it is quite useful. I usually talk to the Raspberry PI via SSH and Xwindows, but there are occasionally times, like first bootup when you need direct access.
