Here are some of the Targus frequently asked questions

What is a cable adapter, and why would I need one?

A cable adapter is a device that allows you to connect two different types of cables or connectors. You might need one to bridge the gap between two devices with incompatible ports. For example, you can connect your computer to a video projector using a USB-to-VGA cable adapter.

Can a cable adapter change the signal quality or resolution of my video or audio connections?

In most cases, a cable adapter should not significantly affect signal quality or resolution. However, using an adapter for long-distance connections may result in some signal degradation. Always use high-quality adapters for critical applications.

Will using a cable adapter affect data transfer speeds, such as with USB or Ethernet connections?

Adapters for USB or Ethernet are typically designed to maintain the same data transfer speeds as the original connection. However, using poor-quality adapters can reduce speed. An Ethernet adapter can also speed up your connection.

Are cable adapters compatible with all devices and cables?

No, not all adapters are universally compatible. It depends on the specific cables and the devices you’re connecting. Make sure to check the compatibility of the adapter with your equipment before purchasing.

Can cable adapters carry audio and cable signals simultaneously?

Yes, many cable adapters, like HDMI to DVI or DisplayPort to HDMI, can carry both audio and video signals if the source and destination support those features. Check the adapter specifications to confirm this capability.
