(5 stars) Great DVI adapter

By:
Until I upgrade my older monitor, this little adapter is just what I need. It works perfectly every time I plug it in, to any DVI Monitor. I leave it on my DVI cable and just plug in when I’m at my desk. Well built, the cord is the right length and doesn’t get in the way. One thing to note, this did not work with most DVI-VGA adapters I tried, so if you’re trying to connect VGA, there are other adapters to look for! I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

(5 stars) USB-C Displayport Adapter

By:
When I think of StarTech I think of reliability, consistency, quality and great technical support. This product covers three of those four items. I just purchased some new Viewsonic 24in DVI monitors for my desk and my old DVI adapters could not support the resolution the new monitors had to offer. Startech offered a great solution and a very inexpensive price to fix my problem. With the new adapters I am amazed at how much better the quality of my monitors are.

(1 star) Not compatible with DELL3007WFPHC

By:
I hope I had read the the review review earlier before I bought two units. I got only HALF of the resolution of 2560x1600!! This compatibility issues should be made more apparent in the product overview!!!! It's so misleading!!!!!

Thanks for sharing your review with us. Unfortunately, this adapter is not likely to work with the Dell 3007WFP of the similar Apple Cinema Display with DVI. Those older displays require a true DVI dual link signal, which explains why the Apple mDP to DVI adapter worked for you. That Apple adapter and our similar versions support a true DVI Dual Link signal over the DisplayPort connector. The CDP2DVI adapter sends a high enough bandwidth signal to push the 2560x1600 resolutions, but the two above-mentioned displays will not accept the signal correctly. We hope this has been helpful and we are sorry for the inconvenience you've encountered using our adapter. If you would like to discuss this any further, please get in touch with our Technical Advisors by clicking "Support" at the top of our website. Thank you

(3 stars) Does not work with 30 Inch Cinema Display

By:
MacBook detects the display. Turns on the back light but displays no picture. The computer believes it is on at full resolution but no display at all. Purchased with the hopes it would drive this fantastic older monitor from my newer MacBook Pro. Bummer.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on our CDP2DVI adapter. Hopefully, we can offer some clarity as to why your adapter is not working with the new MacBook and an older Cinema display. Older DVI-based displays, including your Cinema display, and others like Dell's 3007WFP require a true DVI-D Dual-Link signal. Something that this adapter, the CDP2DVI, does not provide. It can deliver a high enough bandwidth signal from the USB-C port, but the monitor will not accept it. Newer displays typically do not have an issue with this signal type. Do you by chance have a different DVI display you could test with the CDP2DVI? If you do, this will help confirm this interoperability. If you would like to discuss this further, please get in touch with our Technical Advisory Team but clicking the "Support" tab at the top of our website. Thank you

Which of your adapters do you recommend to go from USB-C to true DVI Dual-Link for the 2560x1600 30" Dell 3007WFP, if this adapter is not true Dual-Link?
