5.0 out of 5 stars Converter Nov. 27 2011
The product did all the manufacture said it was capable of and it was very easy to install. It has worked so well that we are going to cancel our satellite TV provider as we can now get all the TV stations we normally watch for free over the internet.

This is a straight forward, easy to use adaptor that offers excellent quality and stability. I would stronger recommend this product over ALL the cheaper units.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do it right May 10 2013

After playing with this for a while I decided to return it. For the most part it does what you would expect and does get a VGA image onto your tv. I am very picky and could not stand that this box altered the output images heavily. Crushed blacks and odd greyscale.
The majority of people will likely be using this unit to get their laptop or computer on to the tv. There are better ways to accomplish this for equal or not much more money. Devices like Apple TV and wdtv live will get you Netflix on the screen for the same price. You might also look at a graphics card update to one with hdmi.
A newer computer might be a good idea if your graphics card cannot be updated. Odds are your card is so old you want a new computer anyway. You can get a basic laptop or desktop for 400 and under and it will run better than your old machine.
Why mess with adapters? Just makes us less portable

5.0 out of 5 stars It works for the job I needed it for. Jan. 21 2013

I bought this converter to give to my girlfriend so she could plug her laptop (without hdmi output) into her new tv and watch movies. When I got the converter I wanted to test it on my setup first to ensure I knew how it all worked so I wired it all up as instructed.

I'm unsure if there was something in the mix that prevented it from working but my tv flashed a warning saying it was an unrecognized video input, but the sound worked perfect. I tried to debug the problem and did all of the recommendations but nothing worked. At this point I was very frustrated that I had made a terrible buy, but I hooked it up to my girlfriends tv and it worked PERFECT! The quality was perfect and the sound was crisp and clear.

I think that my laptop ( with hdmi output, vga output etc ) and my tv ( with hdmi input and vga input ) just didn't work because it has settings already in place supporting the extras.

Overall this product did exactly what I wanted it to do and I have no complaints, great purchase!

1.0 out of 5 stars don't buy this! June 17 2010
By angel share - Published on Amazon.com

This worked great for 3 months, then started making a screeching noise, and then a couple of weeks later just totally broke. I contacted Aluratek via email and they said it was covered under warranty, but after many attempts I could not get any more replies out of them. Sure it's covered under warranty, but the trick is that they don't honor their warranty coverage! Now I'm just out about $100, end of story, no recourse. I should have checked before purchasing - Aluratek has an "F" rating from the Better Business Bureau - the BBB's worst and lowest rating. Aluratek sucks, don't buy their products.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great Dec 18 2009
By Per Bothner - Published on Amazon.com
Worked with no hassles for me, at 1080p, and the display looks pretty good (on a Mitsubishi WD60C9).
On Fedora 12 with an Intel X4500 (on a Lenovo T400) the TV was auto-detected without needing an xorg.conf - i.e. plug-and-plug. The same laptop booted to Windows Vista also worked fine. An older HTPC box running MythBuntu 9.10 does seem to require an xorg.conf with an appropriate mode line.

2.0 out of 5 stars Instructions how to make it work May 10 2010
By JH - Published on Amazon.com
After having connected the adapter it showed on my laptop as 720x480 P&P monitor. I could not get it to work with higher resolutions. The hotline was not able to help. Then I read another amazon review for a different product (VGA To HDMI Converter w/LR Audio). It worked for me, too.

In addition to what is described there I found the following steps helpful for my Windows XP netbook/laptop:
Do the following changes to display No.2 (a desktop computer would only have one display):

-go to Control Panel, Display, Monitor, Activate Display No.2, Expand the Windows Settings To This Monitor,
uncheck Hide Modes That This Monitor Cannot Display.
(checking this will only give a resolution of 720x480 whereas unchecking offers a variety of resolutions
including the HDMI resolutions mentioned in the printed instructions)

-Start with the lowest resolution for display No.2 (640x480) and gradually work your way up to 1920x1080 which is
1080p. The sound sometimes is fuzzy. If that is the case unplug the VGA cable of the adapter from the
computer and re-connect it. In most cases this helped me to achieve a better sound quality.

Things to consider:
1) I only got it to work with the help of another review for a different product at Amazon. The hotline could not
help. If there would be proper instructions it would be easy to set up the adapter.
2) The sound is sometimes fuzzy and there is a slight background pulse which can be heard. The computer
loudspeaker can also be used instead.
3) A HDMI cable is not included in the package and needs to be purchased separately.
4) The picture size delivered by the adapter is slightly larger than the TV display size. The workaround is to
use a player software like mplayer or vlc player where the movie display size is adjustable.
5) Advantage: Everything that runs on a computer like DIVX movies, PAL DVDs, Flash, Internet Browser and much
more can be shown on TV that does not have a VGA plug.

I will keep the adapter since it does the job it promises but because of the poor instructions I will only rate it a two star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Audio has problems Jan. 1 2010
By Yosef - Published on Amazon.com

I purchased the first Aluratek AVH100F on Dec 2, 2009 through amazon. I used it with two different laptops. At first the audio just had an annoying hum/buzz, then after a week of use the audio started having "gaps" of 1-2 seconds every 10-15 seconds. This made the unit unusable. I returned it and asked for a replacement hoping the first AVH100F was just a quality control issue.

The second AVH100F was even worse. Right out of the packaging the audio was not only noisy but distorted to the point of not even being able to understand speech. For this return, I'll ask for a refund.

Both laptops I used it on only had "speaker/headphone out" jacks. It's *possible* that the first unit may have worked better, at least before the audio gaps appeared, if connected to a real "line out" jack such as are frequently available on higher-end desktop computers.

Video - be prepared to deal with "overscan" issues. For example, I was using the AVH100F with my Mitsubishi 73" 1080P TV and the signal received from the AVH100F was too "big" to be displayed on the TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars VGA to HDMI converter June 11 2010
By girbabe - Published on Amazon.com
It's unfortunate that so many products are unfairly assigned low ratings. We are now in a DIY tech world and are expected to know what our needs are before we buy. I know(knew)absolutely nothing about where to even start my search for the right converter until I exhausted myself with hours of internet research, pulling out my TV and computer manuals and then after I "thought" I figured it out, I double checked by asking the tech forums. Once you understand what your TV supports and then your computer graphics card - a feat not easily conquered, only then can you buy the right converter for the right TV and the right computer. I discovered that my HDTV supports 1080p which many if not most- basic converters don't. You need to move on to scalers which I won't EVEN get into here. It helps to familiarize yourself with VGA, DVI and HDMI as well. This all evolved from my frustration when I couldn't even go to a local electronics store to find what I needed nor even find someone who could answer my most basic tech questions. Better to go through the extra time it takes to figure it all out then to buy, get mad, return and do it all over again. After I found this converter, I still had a couple of unanswered questions about the set up so I found the installation instructions, downloaded and...read them. Hard concept I know but it answered my remaining questions and voila! It does exactly what it is supposed to do. If you don't want to do the leg work, go to hdtvsupply and buy a converter that has a built in upscaler with everything else you need along with support people and spend the extra $200 to avoid the hassle. At this point, I bet I could provide better support though.
