Customer Reviews

Does not support higher resolutions For Component + RCA Audio to HDMI, the converter only worked for 480i. This was after being tested with different combinations of component and HDMI cables that were known to work, with the source being able to output higher than 480i and the receiver being able to display higher than 480i. This means that the converter is fairly useless and does not work as advertised, although if 480i is all you require then it will work for you. 1Works well, even with inconsistent audio results I needed a VGA-HDMI converter to connect my laptop to a HDTV for a presentation, and I thought this was the answer. As a VGA-HDMI converter the images display fantastic at most any resolution/refresh. Sound was and continues to be an issue.THE GOOD: The images are impeccable, with no fluctuation, stutter or ghosting. I also like that you can use any HDMI cable with this rather than being forced to use their cable.THE BAD: Make certain your VGA port, USB (for power) and audio jack are within 6" of one another. One of my laptops could not even use this because of this fact. Extension cables do not seem to be a solution either for some unknown reason. Another thing to note is that this appears to be a one-way conversion. meaning that the signal is converted from VGA to HDMI, and sending a signal through the HDMI does NOT convert the signal to a VGA.THE UGLY: Getting the audio to come through the HDMI was frustrating and inconsistent. For brevity, I'm not going to state the exact specs of the hardware/drivers tested, only the OS itself.Laptop 1 (Win 7 Pro): Could not get the audio to work at all.Laptop 2 (Win 7 Home): Could get the audio out inserting the 3.5 as a line out (not headphone), but the audio was out of sync by almost 500msLaptop 3 (Win 8.1): Audio worked fine as headphone out device (not as line out). Line-in jack on opposite side from the VGA. Would not work with a 3.5 extension, so used a VGA extension instead.PC 1 (Win 7 Ult): Worked after a while, not sure what the final solution was.PC 2 (Mint 15): Never could get the audio to work. Could barely hear it if I turned the output to max.THE BOTTOM LINE: Well worth the money as a VGA-HDMI converter, but setting up the audio is sketchy at best. 3Works well but only in certain configurations Quality is very good and I don't see any interference or sound issues. However, when using with OG Xbox I could not use my modern HDMI reciver even in pass-through. The image would keep loosing signal and resetting. After trying multiple cables and connecting it directly to my TV HDMI it did appear to work pretty well. It also had same issue with PS2. I get the feeling your result may vary but the setup that is most likely to work is direction connect to HDMI on TV. What is really needed is one that works well in general not only with very limited connection setups.But, it did work well with this basic setup with Bot OG Xbox and PS2 so at least I have a way to connect them now. 3It does exactly what I bought it for. I have an older security camera system that has only VGA and composite video output. My wish was to be able to switch my HD television from the satellite video stream to the security camera video stream and avoid having a dedicated monitor for the security camera. The IO Crest VGA to HDMI converter worked right out of the box with no hassle and delivers an excellent image on the HD TV. The one thing I did different was to connect the red USB power cable of the IO Crest via a USB extension cable to a nearby laptop that is recording my weather station data and does not use its USB port. The IO Crest is quite satisfied with that arrangement and so am I. I would recommend this converter to anyone who wants to view the VGA output of a PC (my security camera system is a single purpose Windows PC) on their HD TV. The VGA resolution of the security system is 1280X1024 and there appears to be no problem with the IO Crest converting that to HDMI. One very, very minor issue is that the switch from satellite to security camera takes a short few seconds for the TV and the IO Crest to get the signal stream going........I suspect that is more an issue with the TV than with the converter since the TV displays "Retrieving Data" after I initiate the change from satellite. I'm very happy with the IO Crest. 5Not recommended for Wii use I bought this intending to use it on my Wii to allow me to connect it to my monitor and use it in a dorm room. However, the results were less than ideal. While the converter mostly produced usable (if a bit not crisp) visuals in use, when attempting to use this with say, a VC game and certain Gamecube games, the results were that the converter output a signal that couldn't be used by the display.While I don't know if this was a specific issue with using a monitor, rather than a TV which might accept a wider range of inputs, if I was going to use a TV, I would have been able to connect it directly. So this product ended up being useless to me.Pros:* Most Wii native games and channels were usable* Visuals were respectable for a device at the price I paid for this* Audio was clear and free of annoying hums that are sometimes introduced by these productsCons:* VC titles didn't work at all for my setup* The output was often distorted in an annoying way* Scaling used was blurry and worse than even the cheapest DVD players I've usedTL;DR: **Might work for like a basic security camera type setup, but not reasonable for bringing your older game systems to a newer TV/monitor** 3Used to merge music with my security system video output I use this for a possibly unique setup. I use this on the output from my security system DVR and connected the audio to my laptop. This allows me to join music from my laptop which plays continuously with the security camera video feed. That output is connected to an HDMI splitter and then runs to every television in my house. So anywhere in my house I can switch to input two and listen to my favorite music and also see the security camera feeds so that I have a view of my property. I can see if somebody's at my front door or what my dog is doing in the backyard I can keep an eye on the neighbor's property and have a really good situational awareness. 5Works well, but check instructions for proper resolutions! Need to get resolution correct or it WILL NOT WORK. The device comes with a crude, but useful manual. It lists 11 resolutions that the device will work with. If any of these are not used, it will not work. Most video cards try to auto-configure the output to the device. This may result in it working for a second then stopping. If this happens you must configure the resolution manually to one of the 11. I connected this to a Linux VM server using an old TNT 2 PCI graphics card for terminal access. At first the device did not work. I looked at the manual and the minimum resolution is 800X600. Ahh ha! That's the problem is the terminal defaults to 640X480. Set the boot config in grub.conf to vga=792, rebooted the box, and the device came right up. My BIOS out of the box supported 800X600 so if that is the case for you, you get to use this in BIOS as well. Most older BIOSs only support 640X480 so you'd be out of luck with this device.I use this with a HDMI KVM and it works flawlessly. Remember this is a hardware device with NO configuration. It is expecting a specific set of resolutions (maximum 1920x1080) and if it is out of spec with the 11 listed, then it simply will not work. 5There is a better way to solve this problem. I have changed my review to one star after several months of using it. The audio quality is not very clean at all. It has a constant high pitched hiss that drives my ears batty and crackles and distorts the audio. The louder I attempt to turn up the volume, the exponentially worse it gets.I originally gave it a 3 star review because it did "work" and thought it was my only remaining option.... but...for my situation, it only took a few dollars more to get a new graphics card that supported audio out through the HDMI port on the card. This gave me perfectly clean audio that supports 5.1 instead of the stereo only of this adapter. That makes this adapter a terrible value and i would not recommend it to any one using it on a desktop computer.this adapter is only to be used as a band aid solution temporarily. or on a laptop that cant have a GPU change. 1Small Glitch with Ubuntu but Works Great! I ordered this device since there were many overwhelmingly favorable reviews. As with all Amazon vendors, service was excellent; within 3-5 business days. I unpacked the unit and read the extremely sparse instructions on the box. With my TV already on and tuned to HDMI, I plugged in all connections and booted my Samsung netbook running Ubuntu 12.04 only to view a black screen (on the TV) with a message saying "no signal". Drat! I assumed it was one of those "Windows-Linux" things and decided to look around for an adapter that would for sure work with Linux. I found one guaranteed to work with any operating system for $125 - that wasn't going to happen! I found another one (different brand) that looked promising so as always, I went to the customer reviews. Cruising through them I found one where a guy had the exact same problem that I did with this different unit. He also had almost no instructions so he contacted that manufacturer and was told to disconnect the USB power cable till after the computer had booted up, then connect it. He did, and it worked perfectly. Thinking it couldn't be that easy, but with nothing to lose, I did the same and it worked for me too! I now simply connect everything EXCEPT the (red) USB power supply until the computer boots (with the TV set to HDMI), then plug in the power supply, wait a few seconds and my desktop appears on the TV screen! From there, it has worked great, as advertised. I don't know if this is a Linux thing or a Samsung thing, but if you purchase one of these devices and boot into a black screen, try this before you panic. 5It REALLY worked Ordered on suspicion of other remarks but, could not locate anything like it locally anywhere NEAR the price. If the local had any suggestion. Even expedited the shipping to have it for the weekend. It arrived ON TIME and well packed. I was SIMPLE..unbox..setup my laptop...get HDMI cable attached to 42" Philips HDTV make the connections and setup laptop to mirror on the monitor, cycle the TV remote to the assigned HDMI and THERE IT WAS..picture then sound when I accessed the desired internet program. It was exactly as discribed and WORKED for over 3 hrs of internet programing. Those who had issues MUST be completely unfamiliar with their equipment..this was practically a no brainer... 4
