    ELEMENT14 - PIVIEW - ADAPTER, HDMI TO VGA, FOR RASPBERRY PI 3.5 5 4 4
    neat quality product Easy use. This makes your life easy because still there are many monitors dont have hdmi port. Also I could use my old monitor for rpi2 development. Price is so so but build quality is good enough May 30, 2015
    PIVIEW ADAPTER Using this to connect RPi to VGA LCD monitor. Works as expected! May 9, 2015
    PIVIEW working well for me I've been using the PIVIEW for about two weeks no problems. I leave the Pi on 24/7 so I can RDP into it from laptop in another part of the house so the PIVIEW has had a good deal of run time. It seems like a decent value since it lets me use an old flat screen that was otherwise gathering dust in the attic. I will post again if I run into any problems like the other reviewer had.

    Audio?

    Details: 
    Hello, I'm assuming this will allow me to connect my raspberry pi to a standard VGA monitor, correct? What about audio?

    A: 
    HDMI also carries audio -- the VGA end is just video pinouts.

    Adafruit has a nice hdmi to VGA connector that has a stereo audio pin output in the VGA end of the cable. Perfect if you want to connect your RPI to a projector and run audio to speakers. Cost os somewhat less than this cable.

    I'm no rocket scientist, but from what I understand, you can't get audio through a video cable.

    Details: 
    I have seem similar un-powered HDMI to VGA converters discussed that draw too much power from the Pi and burn out the diode protecting the HDMI circuit. The naming of this product seems to indicate that it was designed to work with the Pi. Does anyone know if this is true? Does this converter draw more power than the Pi can provide on that circuit or is is matched to the Pi's capabilities?

    A: 
    This HDMI to VGA adapter is matched to Pi's capabilities. It is recommended that Raspberry Pi is to be powered by an external, mains power supply when Pi-View is connected and in operation.

    Has anyone used this?

    Details: 
    I don't currently have a TV with HDMI and trying to read text on the 27" TV is difficult. Currently I am only using the Pi with XBMC as a media center but would like to do more with it (or purchase a second for dev work). What kind of resolution detail can you get on a standard 17" flat screen monitor with VGA?

    A: 
    It depends on the device you are attaching to it. A raspberry pi is capable of HD resolutions, though depending on the exact pi version and setup you may see 1280x1024, or 1024x768. VGA won't typically carry anything better than that.
