    Working great!

    Use this with MBA Mid2012 on Mountain Lion. No problem connecting with with LG LED TV 24". At first it did not detect the external display. But after restarting the MBA, it just worked! Still exploring to connect it with various model of LED TVs and projectors.

    Perfect Product

    Although you have to plug the VGA end in before you plug in the mini display port, the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter works great in my 2012 Macbook Pro. I run it through the thunderbolt port and it works great.

    Never Been More Pleased

    I ordered this yesterday afternoon, and it arrived this morning. Hooked it right into my Thunderbolt port on my 15 inch MacBook Pro w/ Retina...works excellent. Love the shipping speed and the cord worked right out of the box. Great job Apple.

    Does work with Samsung TV!

    Just thought I'd say in response to other reviewers using Samsung TVs that this adapter works fine. Just make sure you are on mirror settings which is under System Preferences - Display - Arrangement, and you should be fine!

    VGA adaptor for MBP 13inch

    I bought a MBP In July, to date i have had one visit to store and two calls from support yet the thunderbolt port still fails to synch. As a tutor and student, the one thing I hate is being embarrassed. After borrowing other windows systems for presentations, Apple has allowed this to occur now, as they fail to rectify the fault! Be very aware the cable to attach MBP to VGA often doesn't work. The forums support this! The fault is there, but they fail to advise before purchase and don't help after...

    Can not output to projector with this and MacBook Air 11" 2012

    MacBook Air 11" 2012 has only one Thunderbolt port, and my "old" Mini-display to VGA convert cable is able plugging in. It was so disappointed, while I done this, nothing appeared on the projector screen and flashing with "non compatible signal". What's going on, is Thunderbolt different to Mini-display?

    Issues with new macbookpro

    I'm having similar issues with my macbook pro since June when I bought it. Eventually fed up, I took the macbook pro back. The geniuses at the Apple store could not find the problem so they sent it somewhere else to be evaluated. Once there, they put in a new hard drive and system board. Guess what, still having the same problem. Using the same cable on my old macbook never presented this problem. If I restart the computer it freezes and won't boot. I'm beginning to regret the purchase of my $1,600 computer when I could've bought a cheaper one that works. Quality is definitely suffering since the service at the genius bar only made me mad when they basically told me that if they can't simulate the problem in the store I'm out of luck. Maybe this review is more of a reflection of the macbook pro itself and not the adaptor. But, when I buy any product especially from Apple (with premium prices), I expect it to work consistently. This is far from my experience.

    Poor Design - Why fix what ain't broke?

    Works flawlessly transmitting video, but as others have said, the female port on this adapter is recessed flush with the casing and standard screws on a male VGA cable aren't long enough to reach the threads on the adapter. I have to use rubber bands to secure the adapter to the VGA cable (thankfully, the rectangular design of the adapter makes this easy). I even attached some #4-40 standoff screws to the adapter threads, hoping this would avoid having to use rubber bands. Unfortunately, with the standoff screws in place, the VGA cable pins could not now reach the female port, as the port is recessed too far. You would need shorter screws. Not worth the hassle, so I'll use rubber bands to avoid the cable coming unplugged. I love Apple products, but sometimes you have to wonder what they're smoking with certain design changes.

    MBA 2012

    Doesn't work properly on 2012 MBA with majority of monitors & projectors. The only workaround is to shutdown and restart with the monitor connected. This means that this is a software issue (not hardware) and it appears that Apple is not working for a driver update. Without solution I will return my MBA and return to WINDOWS.....

    Does not work on older gen monitor

    Bought to plug into Panasonic 42" monitor and it does not work, tested vga and monitor with PC and it worked fine.

    Return wire not sure why it wont work the same.

    Avoid if you are not using it with apple hardware. Waste of time and $.

    Does not Work properly, can not support 1920x1080

    I am extremely disappointed with this adapter. i purchased it to use an older LCD I have that I verified still worked with my windows 7 laptop. I the adapter would bring the computer to a crawl with this monitor attached ( and later learned it did the same with 4 other monitors) to it and also no picture.(I was intending to extend my desktop to the lcd) I called Apple and they assured me it was the screen not the adapter, although the tech did tell me before the call was over to buy a new screen and make sure it is DVi because the VGA adapters are having problems. I eventually was able to get a picture of 800x600 resolution but could not go to the monitors full resolution. I tried 5 different monitors in total only 1 did it work correctly on.
    I bought 2 new LCD screens, the first was a Samsung and to my surprise it was a VGA only screen, so i tried it out and it would work, but only at 1440x900 not the 1920x1080 the screen supports. I brought back that screen and exchanged it for an ACER P236H which has VGA and DVI. I tried the VGA first, same result as the Samsung only 1440x1080 despite the screen resolution being 1920x1080. I brought back the adapter and exchanged it for the DVI one. The ACER monitor works without issue now at all resolutions up to 1920x1080. I am not sure what the issue is but it is without question something in the adapter or the software behind it. Either way it just isn't worth the frustration of messing with it. go DVI and save yourself the hassle.

    I haven't tested this theory, but if you must go VGA i would try using the DVI adapter with a DVI to VGA attached to it. the DVI adapter seems to be much more stable.

    Great!

    Works great so far with our 19" computer LCD monitor and 32" LCD TV.

    Works just like it's suppose to.

    I don't understand why anyone has problems with such a simple thing. Just plug it in and go. I use mine on a spare monitor and digital projector. Some people should solve the problem before they write a review. They probably didn't use the correct input for their TV.

    variability

    This is a very good connector. First one I had (cheaper copy) only worked for 6 months. This one is excellent, connects data projectors (3 to date) and lots of monitors All on my 2 year old MBP. However my sons New MBP does not recognise data projector or monitors immediately if at all. My conclusion is that this has something to do with the new MBP (mountain lion) combo. Same setup on my old MBP mountain lion works fine.
    Would help if apple could at least provide a workaround in the short term.

    works fine with MacBook Air June 2012 edition

    Not sure why others have had trouble using this - but luckily for me, it seems to work just fine with my brand new MacBook Air that I purchased two weeks ago. I plugged it into a Samsung monitor, used the VGA cord and it worked well.

    Disapointed my new Macbook Pro didn't come with a VGA connector

    I bought my first MacBook Pro 5 years ago and it came with a VGA connector that I use to connect to an LCD projector for class presentations, etc. Many of my friends with Macs have different connectors based on the model of their Mac, so cords aren't very interchangeable unless you have the exact same model. Case in point, my new 2012 Macbook Pro, which has a different connection type. My biggest frustration is that my new one didn't come with a connector which means I need to track one down via the internet or go back to the Mac store when I am in that area to get one that works. Too bad Mac is too cheap to include it like they used to.
