Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Adapter Most laptops these days don?t have a vga port anymore, making it hard to run an external monitor...This adapter works nicely to do just that. Being driverless means you don?t have to worry about installing anything...Simply plug and play...Do wish the cord was a little longer, but not a deal breaker...It does its job and the picture is just as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This thing worked flawlessly to hook up to an old CRT monitor. This little adapter is pretty cool and no setup whatsoever. I?ve heard of people using it for projectors with the same style plug and for their gaming pc?s etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy adapter I was looking for something to be able to play videos from my phone on my computer monitor. This USB-C to VGA adapter came in very handy. You just connect USB-C to your phone and the VGA end to the monitor. My Dell monitor allows me to switch between multiple HDMI and VGA inputs and after switching to VGA, everything was set. Very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works enough Wasn?t sure if this would work for what we need but it seems to have done the trick. Easy to get connected n set and good to go now. Most of my products lately have the usb c connection so it?s compatible with our set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug and use adapter! I read several reviews on the Plugable Technologies adapter and this one really is easy to use, and a crisp picture came up. I have another adapter (and have tried quite a few) and found this works as well if not better than other higher priced adapters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for work trips I had a big adapter for my home office but now I just use this at home and when I have to go into the office or make a presentation. I carry this in my work bag whenever I leave and it?s come in handy more times than I can count.
