Pros Convenient design, allows some flexibility in cable placement
Cons Cheap, flimsy construction, breaks easily
Summary These adapters are a great idea with mediocre execution. The flimsy construction is the biggest problem, they allow some flexibility with cable placement but if you bend the connector too far the plastic housing breaks apart and you are left with exposed wires. This is easy to do for example when swiveling a monitor on a VESA stand.
I bought 2 of these 2 years ago and both have broken with normal use since. The adapter should really be built with stronger materials.
Summary I got this for $4.99 with Price Match. It wasn't as solid as I expected but I haven't had any problems with it nor do I have any reason to think I will. I was wary of the non-fixed angling at first but I'm comfortable with it now.
Summary I bought this adapter because it was small and dirt cheap once price matched. The price fits the product though: it is the bare minimum in terms of structural integrity. It is meant to swivel, but if turned to far the backing breaks into two pieces. I superglued it back together and it seems to have stuck... for now.
You get what you pay for, but if you can wrap it in a little tape or something, it's quite the deal.
Pros Has a the ability to be angled and not fixed in one direction.
Cons None known.
Summary I purchased this for half price through the price match. If you have a HDMI - HDMI cable, this is the perfect item to change your DVI port to HDMI. With the flexible end, it allows less strain on the actual dvi port itself.
Summary Instead of being on a fixed angle, this fob is flexible. It seems to be a fairly solid design, and I estimate it would take 25+ lbs of force to break the hinged parts. There are thumbscrews to fasten it to your device, and the HDMI end has very firm locking clasps in its socket - your cable will not get unplugged unless yanked on.
The hinges bend ~85 degrees in either direction. This gives you a total of about 170 degrees to adjust the pitch and roll of your HDMI cable, but keep in mind you cannot change the yaw angle (left-right).
I hooked up a 720P projector and had no issues - there was no perceivable difference between this and the DVI-HDMI cable I normally use. All DVI-D pins are present in this adapter, but I do not have a device requiring Dual DVI to be able to test it with.
This product is RoHS compliant and the packaging is fully recyclable.
