Tom_N - are you saying that you think it's worth it to try adapter #5, (which would be a dvi-d - usb-C third party as apple does not make) I was unaware that VGA connector on monitor side could be the problem, as thought I'd read numerous things from people saying the connector didn't matter!

Here's a HP note comparing DVI and VGA.  It says that VGA has a resolution of 640x480 pixels.  This is technically accurate, but don't place too much emphasis on it.  There are "VGA"-type standards that offer resolution up to 2053x1536 pixels – and people do not bother referring to them by their own names.  Easier to call them all "VGA".
