RPi To VGA Monitors.

I just found a HDMI to VGA adapter for RPi in element14 which you can hook up between Pi & VGA monitor.
My friend don't have HDMI or DVI female i/p in monitor. Can this converter work fine ?

I read few forums saying it works fine simply by changing config.txt.
While I read few threads in RPi forum & some of 'em melted the RPi.
Now as this is not my Pi, I cannot risk the 3K prototype of others.
While on other hand, he asked me for help & I can't say no.Can anyone confirm that this converter works fine or not ?
PIVIEW - Element14 - Adaptor, HDMI To VGA, Raspberry Pi B+/A+/B/A

Any suggestions ?

    That simply kills the feel of using awesome RPi.Btw vnc is not secure at all.
