Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is the standard interface for high-performance connection between PCs and flat panel displays, CRT displays, projectors, and HDTV. This video cable is fully compliant with the DVI standard defined by DDWG (Digital Display Working Group). Three analog 30 AWG coaxial lines enable high speed analog transmission.
Tri-shielded undermold and braid shield protects against unwanted EMI/RFI interference. Each coax line is individually wrapped in foam-polyolefin insulation and overwrapped with a braided tinned copper shield. 28 AWG copper conductors are individually insulated in hard-density polypropylene to minimize crosstalk, and ensure high speed, error-free transmission. Gold-plated contacts provide full conductivity with no data loss. PC and Mac compatible cable supports hot-plugging of DVI display devices. PC-99 color-coded: blue, white.
Please Note: This DVI-A connector is compatible with a DVI-I port only and not a DVI-D port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by worksfromhome from Works great, good valueI needed a cable to connect my laptop to my HP monitor that has only DVI inputs. This cable works great and is the perfect length because I have my laptop sitting right next to my monitor at my desk. 100% great product- no complaints whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Old Grump from 2m DVI Male to HD15 VGA Male Video Cable (6.6ft)This was bought to replace a cable/adapter combo on which the weight of the cable had bent the adapter so that it no longer functioned. It has solved the problem and has so far functioned perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack from Perfect solutionDue to space limitations, using a DVI-VGA adaptor followed by VGA-VGA cable was not possible. This DVI-VGA cable fit and worked perfectly.

I am trying to hook up a Dell ST2420L Analog monitor as a 2nd monitor for a Iogear GCS1642 KVM switch. I was told I needed a DVI-I cable, but one end has to be plugged into the monitor through the VGA outlet for the monitor to even be recognized. Will this cable work?
Asked by: Lisa at home
That cable will work if you also have DVI-I cables going from each computer to the KVM switch. If you are using DVI-D cables from the computer to the switch, then it will not pass the analog signal needed to send to the VGA input on the monitor.

Do you have a DVI D to VGA?
Asked by: ms
DVI-D is a strictly digital signal and VGA is analog only. So you could not use a simple adapter. You would need an active converter. We have a HDMI to VGA converter (40265) that you could use with a DVI to HDMI cable. You would also want the separate power supply (98101) since it is a DVI-D source that you are using.

How do I know if my computer is a DVI-A or DVI-D?
Asked by: Edward
This type of documentation will be noted in your video card manual or by your PC manual. If you do not have this your PC will list your video model number in device manager and you can search that way.
