Product "HDMI to VGA Converter for Apple TV, Wireless Mirroring with Airplay on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch & Mac - Convert HDMI signal to VGA and Audio signal" by IPEVO

About the Product: Convert HDMI to VGA the Easy and Inexpensive Way.
The HDMI to VGA Converter is your affordable solution for transferring HDMI signal into VGA and Audio signal. The Converter gives you the freedom to use HDMI devices with your existing VGA display devices, including computer monitors and projectors. You can avoid costly and unnecessary upgrades of your VGA devices with this simple unit.
The HDMI to VGA Converter can be used with a large range of HDMI devices, including computers, gaming consoles, set-top cable boxes, DVD and Blu-Ray players, and Apple TV. Just hook up your HDMI device to the Converter. Then hook your VGA display to the Converter. A wide selection of resolutions are possible with the conversion, up to high-definition 1080p.
And because of the included 3.5mm audio cable port, the HDMI to VGA Converter is your best choice for converting audio from your Apple TV. Apple TV has two audio-out options: an optical audio port and HDMI. This limits your options because optical audio ports are usually only found on high-end devices, while many other audio devices (like speakers) don't have HDMI. With the Converter, you have a simple way to transfer Apple TV audio signal to any device with a standard 3.5mm jack, avoiding bulky or expensive alternatives and multiplying your audio options.
You can even use the Converter in conjunction with Apple's Digital AV Adapter to project iPad or iPhone content. Plug in the iPad's power cord into the Digital AV Adapter, and you'll be able to power your device while presenting material. This is great for long presentations.
An AC adapter is included with your purchase, but many HDMI devices provide sufficient power to make a separate adapter unnecessary.
The HDMI to VGA Converter is the hassle-free little box with the big ability to save you time and money.

My Review: This is a simple, elegant, compact and cheap solution to convert your HDMI signal into VGA. As VGA "per se" does not carry audio signals, the audio comes in a separate 3.5mm audio port. I tested this equipment sending signals from my AppleTV to my laptop  (that does not have an HDMI interface), just for the fun of it. My final intention is to use it to send signal from my AppleTV to a projector, that I still have to buy.
I recommend this product to all users that have similar necessities. Easy setup, no assembly required besides connecting cables. was kind enough to provide this product for me through their Vine Program for reviewing and I was not requested to provide a positive review. Opinions expressed here are my own.

  1. USB 2.0 or Hi-Speed USB, provides a good bigger enhancement in performance—up to 40 times faster than USB 1.0, with a style information rate of 480 megabits per second (Mbps). USB 2.0 is absolutely backwards compatible with USB 1.1.

  2. These superior quality cables are sold with a lifetime warranty and are specially designed by Dueltek's own engineers. Fitted with Anti-Corrosion Gold Plated connectors and color coded moldings for straightforward installation, the Dueltek Gold series uses 28AWG wire and a softer grade PVC for maximum flexibility and performance.

  3. It generally allows users to enjoy their high definition image and sound when watching movies or playing.
