    Great Investment!

    VGA to Samsung TV

    I have read the review of this product not working with Samsung TVs. I have a Samsung UN46C9000 LED/LCD 3D TV. This adapter works VERY WELL with my TV. It gives a very clear and sharp picture with no hint of pixelation or other video artifacts.

    I highly recommend it!

    Can't understand the bad reviews

    It worked perfectly for me. Come on, this is just a VGA adaptor, it has no reason not to work properly as people have been reporting. I agree that the initial resolution was bad, but this is a matter of adjusting the resolution and color properties in the System Preferences/Displays. It has a nice wizard to help you.

    Outstanding!

    I just bought a new 15" Macbook Pro in July 2009 and I wanted to hook up the monitor from my HP Desktop. After reading all of the reviews on this site I was very skeptical about this product, but I decided to buy it anyway. It worked perfectly. All of the connectors fit snug and flush without effort, and the Macbook Pro detected and turned on the HP monitor in seconds. I didn't have to open system preferences or change any settings. It was truly plug and play.

    Works fine but take cure if using gfxCardStatus

    If you use gfxCardStatus then you may have to switch away from Intel only mode.

    Don't worry - nothing is broken. If your external display is not being detected while you're using gfxCardStatus, it means that you have a newer i5/i7 model, and you're currently on Intel Only mode. Switch to Discrete Only or Dynamic Switching to use the display. The Intel graphics chipset is incapable of outputting video through the Mini DisplayPort.

    People aren't using common sense.

    I have used this product A LOT. It works fantastic, with no problems. Looking at the reviews, however, any normal person would realize that... maybe this product just doesn't work with Samsung products, which is Samsung's fault, as Samsung and LG like to make it so that their products only work exclusively with their own products. As a result, just don't get it if you have a Samsung product, as it obviously doesn't work for them, and you won't have to write a bad review

    Works Great

    I have no trouble at all with this product except loosing them! I'm buying my third today. I had much more trouble with the previous generation of video out to VGA converters that worked with my old laptop. The mini DVI adapter has worked consistently for video output to a variety of overhead projectors (10+) hundreds of times.

    Apple does charge a lot for all its cables, put in my experience they are more reliable than 3rd party cables.

    Works perfectly from Mac mini to Samsung TV

    I have just bought a 2011 Mac mini and connected it from the Thunderbolt port to my rather old Samsung LA37R71B TV using this adapter. It works perfectly.

    I have set the Mac mini to 1280 x 768 60Hz.

    It's a much better picture on the TV using this instead of using the straight HDMI to HDMI which I also tried.

    Amazing, So Easy - Use for your TV!

    Fantastic. Just make sure your TV has the right ports, silly people!! Not one meant just for PCs. I have an old Insignia 42" (4 years old) a 5-yr-old macbook, and a new macbook and this works perfectly for both set ups. Have the macbook screen and sound plugged into the DVI port and its associated sound input port. Do NOT have them plugged into the RGB PC port.

    Excellent Adaptor

    This is an excellent adaptor! I use it constantly! It's great because I'm in college and have to give lots of presentations that all require an adaptor to connect to the projectors.
    I don't understand the problems other people have because I have never had any trouble at all.

    works great

    I use this adapter everyday at work - and disconnect it several times a week - and reconnect it. I have not had problems. Some of the issues described I believe are related to changing display settings (mirror display etc) The best use of this cable for everyday workflow is to make use of two screens- the laptop and the external monitor next to each other. It is important with all kinds of cables to avoid too much pressure on the port or the cable.

    Worked great with Panasonic HDTV

    I used this device to hook my MacBook (mid-2007 vintage) to my Panasonic Vieja Plasma TV, in order to watch streaming TV (e.g., Netflix). It was incredibly easy - I plugged in the adapter, connected the VGA cable, and the computer automatically did the rest of the work (it auto-adjusted the screen settings to optimize for the TV and mirrored the display to the TV). When I was done, I just pulled out the adapter, and the MacBook display returned to normal. The resolution was great - much better than my previous connection via component cables.

    Works just fine

    I use this to connect to the VGA port of my Asus back-lit LED monitor. It works great. (I'm not sure what other's are saying that it doesn't work.)

    Very nice adapter

    I really don't know why people say theirs don't work with the TV especially Samsung's. I don't have Samsung's TV, but mine works great. It works with Dell screen, Sony TV, Acer projector... There is only one Con in my opinion. It is just way too pricy. Otherwise, this is just a fabulous product.

    Two years of use with no problems

    I bought this adapter in Nov 2009 to use with my then-new MBP for use in interfacing with our Proxima projectors for meetings, approx. 8-10 a month. So, that's now two years without any weird quirks or issues (knock on wood?). Then again I take great care in re-packing and protecting the accessories I use for for this laptop when finished using them and am putting it all away... for example this VGA adapter... so therein might be a good reason these fail for others (certainly not in all cases). I read some reviews and had to wonder... how carefully are they treating the stuff? How honest are they being with themselves? Just sayin'.

    Works like a charm

    I never write reviews on the web, however I thought this time it was worth it.

    I had my doubts about this product after reading the previous reviews. Half the people were saying that it didn't work properly on this screen, that projector...
    Which got me wondering. How can this be ? How can Apple release a product that only half works, slap a 30€ price tag on it, and get away with it ?

    So I decided to buy one, despite the negative feedback, and I couldn't be happier.
    I'm using this adaptor for a 2010 Macbook Pro 15, and have successfully got it working on both screens I have tried: a Dell VideoProjector, and a PackardBell 19 inch monitor. And my god does this make a difference when working with multiple windows. The screen extension setting means you work on your normal laptop (normal resolution, normal everything), and have another monitor beside it, as big as you like. No more looking for windows.

    I have only had it for a day, let's hope it still works a couple of weeks from now !

    To put it simply: completely worth the 30€.

    Serves Its Purpose With Ease

    I purchased this adapter to connect a monitor I purchased at a tag sale to my macbook pro. I was skeptical at first, but the second I plugged it into my pro, the second monitor came up and everything worked easily and without any setup. Great product!
