Shout out to Patec for providing a sample for this review;
Let’s start with the usual PRO’S and CON’s
• Very compact can be easily carry anywhere
• Plug and play
• Sturdy construction
• Documentation (nitpick)
The item was ship fast and it came on simple padded envelop. Not much documentation just a sticker pertaining to the description of the item. I know it was mention to the CON’s of the item but you won’t buy this if you don’t know what is it for, still some form of documentation will be great. Packaging comes in a simple Ziploc type bag nothing fancy, (wonder if there will be a box for future production).
Now let’s talk about the operation, its simple plug and play, most laptops nowadays have HDMI connection and the VGA connection is slowly getting obsolete. This device makes it easy to connect a projector or even an old school VGA monitor. Tested on a 1920 x 1080 resolution monitor without any hitch, works flawless. I highly recommend this item for such use.
