5Excellent accessory for the Raspberry Pi 2 & Pi3
By Hesh!
In the past year my Raspberry Pi collection, demands and skills have grown. Since I now perform custom deployments of these devices for my customers, I needed a means of finalizing the configurations of them in accordance to my clients specifications. Thanks to the XF Times HDMI to VGA video cable I can do this from my existing available VGA port on my desktop computer monitor without having to run an HDMI to HDMI cable across my Prep Area Lab from my workstation to my HDMI LCD TV across the room.

Definitely worth the purchase, especially if you're a Pi hobbyist.

4Works, with caveats.
By WIlliam R
I bought a new video card, but didn't want to give up my cheap-but-adequate VGA-only 19" monitor for the moment. Since newer cards don't have analog connectors (mine has DVI, but no DAC so it's DVI-D only), I had to get an active converter; this cable fit the bill. I plugged it in and it worked immediately, proper resolution and no syncing issues. Better than the old DVI-I/A passive adapter I used to use, in fact.

Unfortunately, in my instance it outputs a noticeably darker picture. While I can offset this at the desktop level, it wreaks havok with some games that depended on a certain brightness to look right (e.g. Skyrim with ENB). For this, one star off.
It also doesn't support AMD's "Virtual Super Resolution" (literally sets the resolution directly, as if the feature isn't even turned on), but I would put this down to inability to communicate with the monitor properly (what with there being a converter in the way). This is a very specific problem, though, and not one that the chip designer could have forseen. Just something to be aware of.

If you need to use an older monitor with a modern card on a temporary basis, I would definitely recommend this cable; it's reasonably inexpensive and plug-and-play, no faffing about needed for basic functionality. For the long-term...you'll probably want to either get a modern monitor or a more expensive, configurable converter.

5Works for Raspberry Pi 3
By J. Thurman
This worked to connect my Raspberry Pi 3 to an old monitor with a VGA input. VGA does not carry the sound data so I had to use a separate 3.5mm male to male cord to connect the two. No issues with image quality and the cable seems very well made.
