    Complete Failure

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    I was unable to get either of our 1 day old MacBooks to connect to any of the 4 monitors we have in our house. The Mac literally shows no monitor connected. Called Apple and they escalated to engineering after about 30 minutes of troubleshooting.

    Macbook MiniDP > DVI Samsung T260HD = FAIL
    Macbook MiniDP > VGA Samsung T260HD = FAIL

    The above was tried with each of the two Samsung T260HD monitors that I have.

    Macbook MiniDP > DVI Dell 2407WFP = FAIL
    Macbook MiniDP > VGA Dell 2407WFP = FAIL
    Macbook MiniDP > VGA Samsung 915n = FAIL

    Expecting a call from Apple on Tuesday with the feedback from the engineering folks.

    Just won't fit!

    • Written by from London

    I thought I'd use the extra DVI monitor I have at home with my new MacBook, so I got the Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter. I tried to plug it into the DVI connector of my monitor, but it just won't fit. Both layouts are DVI, but the adapter is missing 4 tiny pins around the large one. After forcing for a while, it KIND of fits and I do get an image, but the connector literally hangs onto the adapter, semi-attached, and I am not able to fully attach both of them in place so they have to placed on a horizontal surface all the time.

    My monitor definitely has a DVI connector, but I wonder if there are different types of DVI connectors? And if so, should this information have been on the adapter page?

    Read if you plan to connect to VGA via an adapter

    • Written by from Highland Park

    I bought this to connect to DVI and VGA sources. I realize for VGA I need an adapter, but what I didn't realize is the the vast majority of adapters for VGA-to-DVI are NOT compatible with this product. It blocks the DVI-I 4 pins around the bar, meaning you'd break any DVI-I adapter you tried to attach. If you get this and you need to connect to VGA, most existing adapters (such as those that come with video cards) WILL NOT WORK, and you will need to buy a DVI-D-only adapter.

    Does not Support USB like Original DVI

    • Written by from Boulder Creek

    I purchased this adapter along with one of the newest Macbooks thinking I could connect it to my home theater system just as I had done with all of my previous Macs.

    It does not function properly due to the lack of a USB signal that's missing from this new interface. Without this signal, the "Options" tab within the System Preferences>Display properties is missing, and is only present when a USB signal is detected for the display. The ability to remove "Overscan" within the "Options" is needed when connecting to any television, or the desktop is to large to view properly

    The USB input signal, presently is only supported with the new $99 DUAL-link version of this adapter, which has not been made available to this point.

    Great product that breaks after a day

    • Written by

    I received this Adapter yesterday and was very satisfied with it. It works 'out of the box'. But suddenly it didn't work today! I'm very disappointed with the Quality and Control of this product. The worst Apple product I've ever bought.
