Accell sent us the UltraVideo HDMI to VGA Adapter ($59.99) to review. There are quite a few HDMI to VGA Adapters but they are all much poorer quality than Accell’s adapter. All you have to do to connect your VGA monitor to your HDMI port is to plug it in and plug in the supplied USB power cable. It is that simple there are no drivers needed it is just plug in and play.
Here is the datasheet for the adapter:
- Compliant with HDMI 1.3a and DVI 1.0 specifications
- Supports 10 bits RGB color output
- Supports up to 1080P, 1920×1200, 60Hz, reduced blanking
- Supports up to 225MHz video timing
- EDID control and MCCS pass-through from display to source
- Automatic sink detection
- USB or AC Powered
The design of the adapter is sleek and simple to use. It is just as fast to set up as plugging in a standard cable. With VGA starting to out of date sometimes you end up in a situation where you need to connect to VGA. This is where the adapter has become vital.
