I feel a bit silly, but I had no idea whether I could hook my lappy up to my HDTV in order to watch DVDs or to watch something like MLB.tv in HD. I had a devil of a time trying to find out on the interweb what I needed to do to make these things happen.Well, it turns out, it's a piece of cake with this cable.I have a Sony Bravia 32" and an Inspiron 1520 lappy. An interesting thing about the lappy is that the VGA-out is on the opposite side as the audio out. This particular cable is terrific because the audio cable is long enough to reach across the entire lappy, with room to spare.The image on the TV is terrific -- I had read online that VGA didn't have enough bandwidth to transmit HDTV. If so, I can't tell (but, I'm not an audio/video-phile).I just wanted to write this review to say: if you have a 'puter with a VGA-out port and an HDTV that has a VGA-in port, this is an excellent cable for watching DVDs played on your 'puter and/or streamed HD content like MLB.tv.
