    Question about HDMI to VGA adapters


    If I use a HDMI to VGA adapter, will there be any quality loss of the image? Will it look fuzzy or discolored? Also, would Windows detect the 1080p resolution of my monitor through the adapter and output in 1080p?

    This one does: 1080P HDMI Male Input to VGA +Audio Output Cable Converter Adapter for HDTV PC - Don't know about the quality, should be fine if 1080p. That seller doesn't have good reviews though. (Not Newegg, the reseller of the item.)

    I would just make sure you get one that specifically says it is 1080p capable.

    There is a reason why most 1080p laptops don't have a VGA.

    Yes, HDMI is digital only. VGA is an analog signal, so they would have to add hardware for that type of connection. It's an extra expense for something that isn't used very much these days. If you look at the link for the adapter you'll see its a digital to analog converter. It has electronics in it to reproduce the VGA signal and analog audio.
