After trying another VGA to HDMI converter that was $15 less but didn't work as advertised, I returned it to Amazon and ordered the Sewell Hammerhead. It arrived just a couple of days later, in brand new condition. I was surprised at the quality of the packaging - it was very nice! Judging by the photos on Amazon, you might expect the Hammerhead to be a lightweight plastic part - but it's actually pretty solid with great build quality. Sewell includes a short VGA extender cable (I didn't need it) and a micro USB cable for powering via USB port. It's all presented very well in a sturdy, protective box with nice graphics, almost like something you would expect to house a quality watch. I plugged the Hammerhead into my Media PC laptop's VGA output connector and then ran an HDMI cable to the input on my HDTV. Windows 7 recognized the Hammerhead as a Sony HDTV and offered many resolutions, from 640 x 480 all the way up to 1920 x 1200. I chose 1920 x 1080 (the TV's native resolution) and immediately enjoyed a full screen, HD display from my laptop. Colors, fonts and images were all extremely sharp, as if looking at the laptop's built-in display. I played a few videos and there was no a...

I am very pleased with the Hammerhead. It is a great, low-profile solution to my HDMI out problem and helped me avoid having to replace a perfectly good laptop for one with an HDMI port.I sold my HP laptop that had both VGA and HDMI ports for output to a television/larger monitor. This left me with a laptop that only has a VGA connection. This became an issue for me when I couldn't watch the Venus transit on my 32-inch HDTV, which only has HDMI, and had to watch it on the 27-in. The VGA image was less than stellar, so much so that I started looking immediately for a solution that would allow me to mirror the image on the VGA-only laptop to an HDMI-only TV. I looked first for just a cable but read that cables that promise to convert VGA to HDMI are attempting to do the impossible. I decided to keep looking and came across the Hammerhead. It appealed to me because it was smaller than a converter box.I was a little skeptical about this item actually performing as advertised, but it is doing a great job. After making the necessary adjustments to the TV itself, the mirror image looks the same as I remember my HDMI connection from the HP laptop to the HDTV look...

I'm really astounded by the negative reviews, although few. This product is an absolute winner.There is no perceptible image degradation, picture quality is pristine at every resolution. You will be hard pressed to tell that any analog to digital conversion is even happening at all.Image fidelity is equivalent to that of a purely digital source. No ghosting, no fuzz, RGB color fidelity is perfect, no sync errors, and no artifacts.Be aware that you may get some slight cropping on an HDTV (approx 2.5%) _ONLY_ if the display can't handle 1:1 pixel mapping (scan only mode)....nothing any competent PC user could not deal with through video driver scaling options regardless.Sound quality is great, no sync issues or drop-outs.My only serious complaint is that I had received what appeared to be a previously returned unit. The shrink wrapped bag containing the USB mini cable was torn open. Regardless of that, the device along with all other accessories were like-new.Won't knock off a star though...this is just too good......

the samsung tv that i bought does not have vga input. i use this product to connect my old laptop to this new tv's hdmi input. works quite well. the picture quality should be better with direct hdmi without this converter but the converter does its job. it is a bit expensive but i could not find cheaper alternative and i am most interested in getting a working solution at reasonable expense....

I purchased this product solely to watch streaming video from my computer. For the price I could not be more satisfied. It was quite a bit of work to figure out the process to get the image from my laptop to appear on my television. I blame this on my equipment and not the converter. Once I was able to get it to work I can say I am very satisfied with the picture quality. The folks at Sewell Direct were very helpful. I had to replace my initial unit and they sent a replacement immediately....

The only resolution I can view from my laptop is 1280 X 720. All other resoutions fail on my SONY KDS-50A2000. This is an older set, it's true, and apparently lacks any settings options that would allow for other resolutions. That being said, this resolution actually looks pretty good. Watched an Amazon streaming movie today and was very pleased with the picture. Definately better than using the tv's VGA input....

My Sewell Hammerhead VGA-to-HDMI was delivered yesterday. I tried it with 3 different laptops and 2 different HDTVs. It didn't work with any of them. What now? It didn't come with any sort of troubleshooting guide....UPDATE: I got it to work by dropping the laptop resolutions down 600X496, 59 MHtz. The little booklet that came with the hammerhead stated that the much higher resolutions that my laptops ran were supported, but I guess not. At any rate, once I dropped the resolution I was able to watch my downloaded media. The movie looked good and everything worked very well. I'd give it 5 stars if I was simply able to hook it up and it worked with the resolutions as advertised, but because I had to work on it so long without the support of a real instruction guide I can't give it more than 3 stars. However, forewarned is forearmed, so I'd still recommend the product....

I was looking for a way to connect an old computer with vga to a new TV I purchased that only has hdmi inputs. I tried using some cables at first but it did not work that way. I did my research and it turned out that vga can only be upscaled to work with hdmi with a converter.Then I came across this beast. This thing kicks some serious butt! Works like a charm. Supports many resolutions. Setup is easy, no complicated instruction manuals and no hassle. This little thing does not even need external power and even has an audio input jack that connects to the computer and transmits sound to the TV/monitor. What more could you ask for?It comes with a short (about 3 inch) vga male/female cable, so that the device itself does not have to be plugged straight into the device, which is convenient if it was to be used with a laptop for example, as it would not get in hands way as much.The device itself and the mini vga cable are high quality copper. It also comes with a 3.5mm stereo jack however, that is not copper. Using this cable, I was only able to get mono sound through my TV. Good thing I had an extra copper stereo cable that allowed me to get stere...

I am a professional musician that needed one dedicated laptop for studio work only and the ability to produce a high definition monitor on a large screen HD TV. My Samsung Large Screen did not have VGA and I also wanted a better sharp image for live recording with no strains of vision. (A lot ot precise details in studio recording). I didn't want to pay this kind of price for a simple converter adapter, but I also needed something quickly and working immediately. I'm okay with my purchase despite the price. That said, the Sewell VGA to HDMI works perfectly. Plug it in, attach the cable, and turn it on and go. Easy screen resolution changes on the laptop had a perfect image instantly. I was on in less than five minutes total. This product is simple, well made, and just plain works.PROS:1. Very Well Built. Not plastic junk, but metal and hard casing. Nice and firm connections that won't slip. Much better built than most products of this kind out there. Should last forever. (at this price, it had better!)2. Easy Plug and Play. It has minimal picture instructions, but I can't see anyone really needing them. As said, Fi...
