Customer Reviews

Are you using a TV as a computer monitor?I bought this cable because I just bought a new LCD TV and want to see how it can work as a computer monitor. I plugged my laptop to a computer monitor before. Everything shows up instantly like a clone monitor; I didn't have to do a thing. So I was expecting the same this time.When I plugged it in, nothing happened. TV's PC input says no signal. I messed around with Display settings. Finally the TV is getting a signal but not showing it -- that is, the screen is still black. After further messing, wondering if my TV's PC connection is bad, suddenly, my desktop background showed up. Nothing else, though; no cursor, no open windows. Nothing but the desktop picture.Finally, I found out from the internet that you must use your graphics driver interface inside Display settings to configure the screen.For my TV, it doesn't handle high resolutions and stays black; when I lower my resolutions, it shows just fine. The TV shows just the desktop background as extra screen space. If you open a big window and drag it along the edge of your screen all four sides, it will eventually show up on the TV. It's very neat actually!Anyway, my point is, it's not the cable's fault; the cable is working fine. And it's really, really thick and heavy duty. I've paid 4 times the money in the past for such cables. This is a tremendous deal, totally worth it. 5Good but take noteThey worked well when using them with computer monitor and were durable during the time I used them. Although, I purchased them to connect a computer to a tv with only VGA possible, primarily, but that didn't work. Somehow the TV didn't want to perform well with this cable and had issues with displaying the desktop well giving lines and a bad video quality. Verified with another VGA cable that worked perfectly fine so would take it as a possible cable issue or I may be missing something in regards to specs. Good but beware of possible limitations with anything other than actual PC monitors. 3Need HelpAppears to be a well-made product. But I need a little help. I connected the double male ends, one each to my PC and LCD TV. The screen of the TV reads 'no signal.' There is also a female port on my PC which I haven't utilized. Do I need a different cable? I notice some with a Y splitter, two male, and one female connection.Also, I don't have HDMI. I didn't care for the high monthly bill for what I considered little programing that I actually liked. Does this matter? It's a new television, with plenty of ports and Viera capability. It's this one.Panasonic TC-L32X2 32-Inch 720p LCD HDTV with iPod DockUPDATE:The problem was the product. It didn't work. Ended up buying a much more expensive one from Best Buy. Guess I got a bad cable. :( 1how to repair this cableMy monitor would be dim then things would have a bluish then red hue etc I found when this cable was moved it affected to monitor. Lookinhg at the cable I saw that the cable was not molded to the plastic housing. By moving the cable to one side of the plastic housing I was able to get a good picture on my monitor. I got several round pointed toothpicks and inserted them in between the cable and housing. Then superglue was applied to the area where the cable went into the connector. I did the same thing to the other end of the connector. moving to cable to get the best picture on the monitor. I held it in this position inserted the toothpicks and added superglue. Things now work perfectly! Many cable do not have the cable molded to the housing, and may need this fix.Take time to be quite no TV no radio I have had very good ideas come to me while doing this (Psalm 46:10.) 1You get what you pay for...Like many here I purchased this VGA cable with the expectation of connecting a laptop to an HDTV. Since I couldn't wait for the cable to arrive soon enough I purchased one locally from Fry's Electronics (for more than twice the price + tax). The Fry's cable has worked well and aside from the price I have no real problem with it.That said, I received my Amazon order today from HDE and immediately noticed some significant issues:1. The cable gauge (diameter) was noticeably thinner.2. While the product illustration displays "ferrites" (2) one on either connector and the description mentions "ferrites" (plural) several times, the cable only arrived with one ferrite on one connector.3. One of the connector retaining screws is slightly bent and will not align through both holes on the connector, it's virtually useless.4. Cable length was measurably shorter as well. Both cables are described as 10' long. The Fry's cable measures 9'-11" and the Cables to Go measures 9'-5".5. When comparing picture quality, the Cables to Go comes up short here too. As several others here have described, picture quality ranged from "snowy" to noticeably "fuzzy" and most definitely inferior.Sometimes there is no way to know if you are buying a "bargain" or just getting short changed. In this case the "Cables to Go 10' SVGA" cable is going to go... right back. 2Very durable cable, but may not be the best pictureConstruction of cable: 5 starsUsability: 3 stars (read below)(See note at end too!)This review is mostly based on the construction of the cable. This cable has more re-enforcement and shielding then you could possible need. You could probably hang from it and it not break it; very solid cable.Now on to the not so good news...Search for a review buy "David Moore". It basically sates that this cable may not be able to correctly send the signals needed for a non-generic resolution (the display will "display" but may not be optimize-able for clarity via display settings on the computer). I knew this buying the cable (after spotting that review), and it is indeed true for me too. This was not an issue for me obviously (I just needed a good thick heavy duty cord that length for where it was running to).************NOTE************If you are using both DVI/HDMI and VGA at the same time on your computer for what every reason, the display may change during use if the DVI/HDMI is removed (for whatever reason). This can jumble up you desktop icons among other annoying things. Just understand that this very nice cable only cost a few bucks for a reason. 4Did not work for meI attempted to use this cable to connect my old HP desktop to my several year old Samsung HDTV. The TV did not recognize that the computer was connected and kept the PC option shaded and would not let me select it. I tried several things I read online and nothing worked. A new cable from BestBuy fixed the problem ($24.00) I don't know what the difference is, but there is one. To make matters worse I bought 2 of these pieces of crap. I had had a good cable before but it started experiencing weird color bleeding from a bad spot in the cable, so I thought I would pull a fast one and get 2 cheap cables and have one as a spare, contrary to my wife's opinion. Well, I got a double kick in the ass because, my wife was right and the cables are crap. Lesson learned, at least for a little while. I wish I could rate them lower than one star. 1Might work for low refresh or resolution, doesn't hold the signal for any decent resolutionNeeded an inexpensive VGA cable a few feet longer than what I had, and I ran across this one at quite a steal of a price (less than $5 shipped). Normally I've had great luck with cables from Amazon, but this one just isn't doing the job for me.Hardware:* 3ghz DELL 3gb RAM* DELL 2007FP LCD Monitor* Intel Q45 ExpressI've tried all the resolution settings above 1024x768, and below. 1024x768 gives the "best" picture, but "best" is really a misleading word. More appropriately would be that it gives the "most tolerable" quality.Anything above 1024x768, including at the native 1600x1200x60 setting, renders ghosts and bleeding--generally indicative of signal loss. The cable isn't nearly as thick as most of the ones I use. I've tried 2 other cables without issue.This one may work for certain VGA hardware, just not in my case.PROS:* Inexpensive* Gets the job done in a pickle, but don't expect to enjoy itCONS:* Doesn't hold the signal, which means picture quality is going to be iffy unless you have a booster or high-output VGA equipment* Doesn't appear to have as much shielding as many other cables of similar price* Signal loss causes eye strain when viewing the monitor 2Surprised to find it didn't work for my applicationI ordered this cable because my computer lives about 6 feet away from my monitor, and the old VGA cable I had just barely reached. I connected this new 10' cable and right away my computer had problems. I have a Samsung SyncMaster 23" monitor set to 1920x1080 resolution, and the new cable simply wouldn't support a resolution that high. If I had the resolution at 1920x1080, I would keep getting Windows errors and that funky thing where you can't see the entire background at once, but you can push to the edge of the screen and scroll over to the background that was cut off before. I found that I was able to set my monitor to 1440x900 or lower without problems, and I've since learned that VGA cables have problems with the signal getting too weak if the cable is too long.I don't think there is anything wrong with this cable, but buyer beware, there's a reason why most VGA cables are 7' or shorter. The cable itself simply can't support the resolutions that today's monitors can be set to. 3BAD CABLE - Monitors not detected - Buyer Beware!This cable does NOT pass on the monitor's information to the computer so that it can auto-detect the supported resolutions.It only allows the monitor to be detected as a "generic display", and you will have to manually sort through TONS of unsupported resolutions to find the exact resolution that your monitor supports, especially for higher resolutions, such as 1920x1080. Since the monitor cannot be detected, this also prevents installing monitor drivers for the display.Also, the cable itself is very thin and feels flimsy.BUYER BEWARE! Save yourself a headache and get a higher quality cable. 1
