    we bought a Mitsubishi PD 6130 Plasma monitor about 9 years ago. The image is still great. The problem is that I want to connect it to a laptop and there is no HDMI input. 2 questions..

    1. Any idea of its value today? can't find one for sale on ebay or anywhere.
    2. Has anyone used a VGA to HDMI converter?

    Just keep in mind, the DVI carries video only, no audio. So you'll also need a separate audio connection from the laptop to either the TV or your AVR (if you're using one).

    Does anyone have any idea what the PD6300 might be worth, if I want to sell it?

    Where are ya?(using phone, can't see if there)If remote and manual are present....$200.Samsung and LG/Zenith have new in the box for less than $600. New models will probably be $900 once all the 13s are gone.

    By the way, why are wanting to sell it instead of buying a HDMI-DVI cable?The 6130 is a monitor. It has no speakers, so even if it had HDMI, You still need external audio.
