The thing is, HDMI (digital) to VGA (analog) without some sort of converter box in between just can't work, and it never will. You'd need something drawing some power to convert the signal, and if it's just a straight cable, you won't have that.
Speaking plainly, HDMI-to-VGA 'adapters' are a scam. Don't buy them.
In the above video, we also re-cover fake DVI dual-link cables and the misinformation that a "SATA III cable" is somehow faster than a "SATA II cable." They're the same. The only difference is the clip on the header. You can read more about that over here.
Do you have a tip about other fake products we should alert people to? Let us know below.
