Doesn't work? Just take out the pins! (seriously) – HDMI/F to DVI 24+5/M Adapter Reviews

Good construction, cheap. It does what it has to do.
You will probably have problems with the extra pins.
In my case I wanted this adapter to connect my XBox 360 to my Samsung 2032BW monitor. The adapter didn't fit in the socket, so I took out these extra pins (in my case, the big pin and the 4 next to it) with a tweezers, and it is working great! I found out that this 5 pins are only used in analog connections, so they are not needed for HDMI.
If you need to connect a XBox 360 to a computer monitor via DVI, buy this! Now!
