This review is for the Asus brand name micro-HDMI to VGA Adapter
Finally, I can see my tablet’s screen on a big monitor!
I purchased this to use with an ACER IKONIA A100 Tablet. This unit allows output to another monitor, for which I am using this adapter. I did find the difference between using the mini-hdmi and micro-hdmi a bit confusing. There is a difference, however, and my tablet will not use a mini-HDMI connector.
I plugged the adapter in and it worked. There are no settings to change, either on the tablet or monitor. It is very simple to connect to the monitor cable. I was worried about the cable pulling out of such a small connector on the tablet, but the micro-hdmi is much better at holding onto the connector than the standard HDMI connector on the TV. I would prefer a thinner cable on the adapter, but that might cause more issues, too. It does have to support the weight of the VGA connectors on both cables.
When this cable is in use, sound is normally transferred to the HDMI connector. Since this is a converter to VGA, sound is not transferred with the video. Instead, the sound can be heard through the earphone jack on the top of the tablet.
I am very satisfied with this cable. The output from my A100 is sharp and clear on the big display.
I can recommend this adapter to owners of the ACER A100. I do not have other tablets to try this with. For myself, I would gladly pay for a replacement adapter if this one becomes damaged.
