GREAT! does the job - I wish I bought one earlier! by pliers
This lead cured a really annoying screen problem , that showed intermitant noise/tearing about a 10th the way down the screen,
have an unusual setup to most, 2 pc's setup as dual monitor sharing the same 2 screens (AOC2343's) one of the machines has an Asus 6950 OC edition and the other an MSI gtx670OC edition, unfortunately as the screens have only one digital input and one analogue input and neither graphics card supports dual analogue out it means connecting to each card with both analogue and digital interfaces, not a problem on the ATI powered card but with the nvidia one had a horrible noise problem, especially while both machines were in use! as no spread spectrum power setting is in the bios on these modern machines (cures all sorts of interference wierdness on older machines) 1st thing I did was swap the screens around then vga lead with the known good one connected to the ati, then the adaptor, the result was not a whole lot better but definately a small improvement (the msi adaptor seems to have shielding issues, and once your eye is drawn to the issue it seems to stand out like a sore thumb, anyway as a last resort I popped down and got one of these, and I wish I had done it earlier! no more tearing or noise on the analogue side on the gtx670,
The message here is plain and simple folks if your using one of those silly dvi to vga adaptor things, and are getting a lousy picture do yourself a favour and bin it and get one of these instead!
