Overview

The HD2VGAA2 HDMI® to VGA Adapter Cable enables you to connect an HDMI output device, such as a laptop video output or digital media extender to a VGA display device (monitor, projector) by converting the HDMI video signal from the output device into a VGA output and separate 2-channel analog audio. The HDMI to VGA adapter is intended for displaying user generated content such as presentations, documents, and work sheets onto a VGA projector or monitor. The adapter can also extend your computer's desktop to double your workspace and increase productivity.

The versatile converter supports resolutions including high definition 1080p, which eliminates the expense of upgrading a VGA display for the sake of compatibility, and doesn't require a separate power adapter which saves installation time and hassle.

Backed by 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Easily make your new HDMI® equipment (Desktop, Laptop, or Ultrabook) compatible with a VGA display (Television, Monitor, Projector).
  • With support for up to 1080p video and 2 channel audio
  • No power adapter required

(3 stars) Great video but no audio at all

By:
I bought this for my job where I need to project videos that include audio. I am not able to get any audio from the converter. Maybe I need to provide external power to solve that_

After the HD2VGAA2 adapter is connected, it's often necessary to select a different Playback device. Power may be required in certain setups, but we encourage you to reach out to our Technical Advisors for troubleshooting.

(2 stars) It does not appear to work

By:
Just bought this adapter to be able to connect my Raspberry Pi 3 to an Acer VGA monitor. First attempts brought no success without external power. After plugging in my cellular charger Rpi screen shown up for about 2 secs then display went black. The same happened when I connected the monitor to my decent MacBook Pro laptop. Now I'm stuck and don't know where to go now without proper documentation. Would it be possible that external power is not enough?

Thank you for leaving your feedback on HD2VGAA2. We apologize that it isn't working for you! Since it works for a few seconds before cutting out, it sounds like it may be having power-related problems or simply be a faulty unit.

(4 stars) Easy plug and play

By:
I got this product for test and it is small and easy to use. I tested it with Dell, HP and Asus without a problem as good plug and play product. The only issue was on the Lenovo laptop which I had to reboot it to work. I recommend this adapter. Disclaimer: I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(3 stars) Works best with external power.

By:
My Dell and 2016 Macbook Pro work just fine with this adapter. Even passing it through a USB-C to HDMI adapter on my 2017 Macbook works. No drivers, it just works. Don't try to go over FHD though. On my Chromebook and older HDMI enabled laptops though, it required external power to be stable. I just used a small USB to mUSB cable, and it worked. Also usable with a USB charging brick (nothing major). Build is solid, but took a couple stars due to the lack of ANY documentation in the box. Most of us know to go online and look, but.... I leave this in one of our conference rooms (has a VGA projector), with the USB cable attached. No complaints from users!

(5 stars) Fast and Helpful

By:
I have tested this adaptor with a different combination of computers, monitors and projectors without any big issues. The adapter comes in a small box the size of a cell phone but the thickness of two. The box is very difficult to open and the adapter sits in a flimsy tray within the box. The packaging was all wrecked removing the adaptor for the first time. The adapter has a VGA port on one side and the other side has a 3.5mm audio port, HDMI cable and Micro USB-B port. The adaptor says that is doesn't require any power so I am unsure why it has a USB port on. There are no included instructions in the box, on the box or on the web site to provide more information. When I first connected this adaptor to my computer I was shocked how quickly it was working. If I connected the HDMI port first to my computer then almost instantly of connecting a monitor the video and sounds were working. If I connect the VGA cable first, then audio and video start within 3 to 4 seconds as does any normal HDMI monitor. The sound and picture from this dongle were crisp, clear and without any delay. When I first played copy protected content (i.e. Netflix) the dongle stopped working and I had to disconnect then reconnect and it started working again. I have not been able to reproduce this issue since but I thought it would be worth noting. This adaptor starts working very quickly. I had doubts about converting HDMI to analog but my mind has been changed since using this adaptor. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(4 stars) Good adapter not very good documentation with it

By:
Overall I am very happy with this product the video portion worked without issue for me. I plugged it in and the video worked just fine with my projector. The audio did function fine and did give me the results I was after. What I did not like was the lack of any documentation with this product. There is a micro usb on the product with no reference as to what it is for. (turns out after doing some investigating that some units may require the additional power) Now this would be nice to know before buying this device. And for those of us who need to know what every port is...I would like explanation so I dont spend time having to find an answer. Overall it works. I had no issues. Documentation is an issue as even the website did not reference. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

(1 star) Not working!

By:
Just received this today, as soon as I plug it onto my mac book pro, the laptop screen starts flashing, indicating it is receiving signals from the external monitor but also losing it all the time. Changed several VGA cables but no difference. Changed to apple mini DP to VGA adapter and that works fine.

Thank you for sharing your review of our HD2VGAA2. We apologize for the problems you've had so far and would like to help. When using this adapter with MacBooks, we recommend using the USB cable to provide additional power for our converter. Some MacBooks don't provide enough power over just the HDMI connection. We hope this helps. If you would like to troubleshoot further, please call 1-800-265-1844 or chat live with us at https://www.startech.com/Chat

(2 stars) Not working at 1920x1200

By:
I have dual 1920x1200 VGA monitors that worked fine with a dual VGA graphics card. I now have a GTX1060 graphics card which only has HDMI outputs so I thought this device would save me from buying new monitors. The problem is that the graphics card detects the monitor as being 1920x1080, and I would have no problem even running the monitors in that mode, except that with the NVIDIA GTX 1060, and this Startech device, the display ends up going way offscreen cutting off about 250 pixels of the edge of the screen on 3 sides, so it's basically not usable. Going into the NVidia custom resolution and forcing 1920x1200 fixes things a little but no much (about 150 pixels lost on 3 sides). I have also tried playing with numerous front porch and retrace clock counts and nothing helps. If there is a way to get this device to work at 1920x1200 it certainly isn't obvious how one would go about doing that. Maybe it works with some monitor combinations, but not the ones that I have (KDS K-24MDWB)

Hi, Thanks for sharing your review of our HD2VGAA2. We're very sorry for the confusion, unfortunately this adapter does not support 1920x1200. We are in the process of removing 1920x1200 from our list of supported resolutions. I noticed your KDS display also has DVI inputs. Please consider exchanging this adapter for our HDDVIMM3 adapter cable instead. It will work at 1920x1200. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. Thank you.

(5 stars) Works Great

I bought this to use at our local Junior College to tie into their audio video system from my non VGA laptop. Took off and worked like as advertised and the audio was excellent as well.

What is the function of the Micro USB connector ?
Helpful? Yes - 0 No - 0 Report
By: Ignatius Reily
Hey, Iashen- the Micro USB is a way to provide power for better conversion for devices with weak HDMI output. If I understand right (and I could be wrong) it might be necessary for D/A audio conversion, too.
