Thanks OP, got one. Ihope it works for my new laptop that only has HDMI out

Since this adapter is for digital->analog and it doesn't appear to have significant hardware, I believe it depends on the graphics chip/card being able to do the digital->analog conversion (the last time I looked into it, most didn't).

  Agree. 
It doesn't  make sense to me being this cheap if it has any hardware to do the conversion. Even the list price is cheap for a real hardware interface.

Wikipedia said: Legacy compatibility
HDMI can only be used with older analog-only devices (using connections such as SCART, VGA, RCA, etc.) by means of a digital-to-analog converter or AV receiver, as the interface does not carry any analog signals (unlike DVI, where devices with DVI-I ports accept or provide either digital or analog signals). Cables are available that contain the necessary electronics, but it is important to distinguish these active converter cables from passive HDMI to VGA cables (which are typically cheaper as they don't include any electronics). The passive cables are only useful if you have a device that is generating or expecting HDMI signals on a VGA connector, or VGA signals on an HDMI connector; this is a non-standard feature, not implemented by most devices.

I have several of a similar converter from a different Amazon seller that were priced around $15. Have used them with laptops, android tablet, and Xbox going to both projectors and monitors without any issue.

" It features a built-in active IC chip".

Also requires power.

Think it is an active adapter.
