AZJim, it is important to have in mind that Intel guarantees the functionality of our products when using straight connections from the board to the displayed devices. Please avoid the use of adapters or converters.

Sylvia, I do appreciate that you took the time to answer, but I must say I do not find your answer at all helpful. Surely you realize that many will want to connect a NUC to a monitor with a VGA port, and the fact that no one at Intel can bother to go buy 10 or so adapters for a total cost of maybe $150 to $350 and then quickly test them is mind boggling to me. For example, you could test the many adapters that are commonly used with Apple products and let us know if they tend to work or not. Now I am hoping an Intel Community member will respond with a yea or nay on adapters so that I and others will know which to use and which to avoid. (I know that the Micro Connectors M05-198 does not work). In frustration I have begun conducting my own "trial and error project" by purchasing an Xcellon miniDP to VGA adapter. I am awaiting its arrival and will report on whether or not it works.
I'm still waiting to get this information for you, but I would appreciate your report on whether or not it works.
AZJim, I've got my brand new D54250WYK today and would like to share with you that SIIG miniDP-to-VGA adapter just works fine. SIIG's product code is CB-DP0911-S1. The only weird thing about the adapter is its color -- glossy white. Except for the color and the price of $30+ everything else is just fine.
Thank you!! I have ordered it from Rakuten and will try it with my unit.
Bloody Nokia Adept, I got the CB-DP0911-S1 adapter today and it did work great for me. I have marked your response as the answer to my question. Thank you, thank you!!

I can now confirm another adapter that works, the Xcellon MINI DISPLAYPORT TO VGA ADAPTER Mfr# DPIVGA. I ordered it from B&H, their part number is XCDPIVGA. It is beginning to look like the adapters used for Apple laptops work, but I can only confirm the Xcellon DPIVGA and the SIIG CB-DP0911-S1 (kudos and thanks to Bloody_Nokia_Adept for the SIIG).
I'm happy my advice helped you!
Actually, it's my second adapter from SIIG -- first was DP-to-HDMI for my ThinkPad X220 laptop -- and I would admit that even staying above the average cost, their adapters are quite reliable and hassle-free to me...
