    WORKS GREAT!

    I have a Mac 2.0 duo core and needed an extra monitor to run windows 7. Plugged it and works perfect! One problem I ran into was not being able to close the laptop and the external monitor stay on. After trying everything I realize I just needed to hit the space bar on the wireless keyboard and Wallla! Simple solution to what seemed to be a major problem. Only tried to do this because my PC crashed at work and needed something to work quick. When I get the PC back I will be putting it on Craig's List and NEVER again will I buy another Pc! Unfortunatly the rest of the world has not transformed to MAC. When will people realize they spend twice money in the long run buying software and ultimently getting them fixed. With Mac theres never any down time!

    Set up?

    I rated this 4 stars only for my iMac. On my iMac I have the Mini Display Port to VGA Adapter and it works fine.

    So far I can not seem to make it work for my Macbook Pro. Is there a different way to configure it for the Macbook?

    For the iMac, I went to System Pref, Display, Detect Display and it works. Not so on the Macbook.

    Almost Perfect

    Overall, its a good product. It's aesthetically pleasing, an fits right into the mini display port. The actual connections and color is also very good. However, when attaching the VGA Cable, it does not always stay attached, even with the screws. Most of the time it fits, but sometimes, when plugged into certain cables, and Smart Boards, it wont stay connected and I have to put a pice of tape around it, then it is fine and doesn't give me any trouble. Its a very good cord, and worth the money. Don't let one person's bad review not make you buy this, or a Mac. They work perfectly and come in handy.

    Easy and fully functional

    It is a major flaw in the screen industry that they never replaced VGA by mini-VGA as did Apple, but apparently they were looking out for another technology, like, e.g., HDMI. So Apple's frequent role as a game changer as we've seen in with the touch-screen technology for mobile phones, the mouse for personal computers, the wireless tablet to read newspapers (iPad), the easy-to-access store to buy legal software (AppStore), was not actualised here. As a consequence, we Mac users are all forced to use adapters to hook up to existing technology like the case of VGA screens. It's a pity, because mini-VGA was a good idea; easy, feasible, cheap.

    I've tried out Apple's Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter for two months now, and it works flawlessly. The cable connecting the two ends — VGA and mini-VGA — makes the whole issue of combining the connections easier, because the VGA cable in the other end that ports the image data to the television or external computer screen is cumbersome to deal with. Usually, VGA cables are big, clumsy and hard to twist.

    I used the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect both to a cheap 19'' computer screen and to my television set. The images turning up on my Sony Bravia 32'' flatscreen are excellent; I've never seen my television set present the world in such a beautiful way. The images are knife sharp as on a computer screen, but with a much more vivid colour depth. Whenever you have the chance, use your TV flatscreen to display your computer activities. And use the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect your Mac to the television set's VGA port.

    Does EXACTLY What it is supposed to do

    Using iMac 21" and this had no issue extending the display or mirroring to my 60" pioneer plasma.

    This cable only carries video. Not much can go wrong with it.

    Works well

    The price seems rather steep, unfortunately there is no other cheaper alternative.
    Works effortlessly and there have not been any problems so far 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.

    It does the job

    Bought the item to play .avi's form my macbook to my Sharp HDTV. Good to go!

    Made the first mistake of buying a mini-dvi to VGA adapter but guess what.. they don't work with the new macbooks. Luckily Apple now displays images of the connection plugs so now you shouldn't go wrong.

    Works Flawlessly

    I use this cable with a late-2008 MacBook aluminum and NEC 1770GX. I watch movies/videos on the NEC while surfing the internet on my MacBook. It works perfectly. Set up was negligible -- just a minute to plug in the cable. Refreshingly simple and highly recommended.

    Does its job-with a Samsung

    MacBook Pro to Samsung TV. No problem. Taught my wife how to mirror the display and she can watch all the Netflix streaming movies she wants to, using the TV.

    The suspense was unbearable...

    I needed this to do a presentation for class but I was worried because of all the negative reviews. Bottom line is, night before the presentation I unhooked the monitor that was connected with my families one windows desktop, plugged the adpater into my 13 inch MBP and the screen automatically adjusted, I selected mirror screens and it worked as smoothly as a brand new Ferarri! I don't know about performance with TV's but it works great with my monitor. Only thing is that it's a bit short, and it discolors easily.

    Product Works Perfectly

    This product works perfectly, exactly as it's supposed to. Now, I've only used this on my external monitors of various sizes, no TVs, but it works great.

    So like some other reviewers, I'm not sure why this thing doesn't have a higher rating.

    There is nothing wrong with this product!

    Like other reviewers, I do not see why this is not a highly rated product. It is simply a VGA adapter. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Negative Samsung reviews? Worked perfectly for me on receipt, no problem.

    I don't quite understand all the negative Samsung reviews: I held off purchasing this
    adapter for a month because of them: I finally ignored other people's Samsung difficulties and I took a "risk" and bought it and received it this morning.

    I just hooked it up from my 17" MacBook Pro/3.06/2x4GB/500/SD/AG and plugged it in via VGA cable to my Samsung 50" 1080P Plasma (PN50B550T2F) and mirrored with absolutely no difficulty. I'm sorry I hesitated buying it now. It was stunning to see Safari speed through pages using my AT&T U-Verse MaxPlus internet account (up to 18Mbps downstream but usually clocks around 14 to 16 Mbps) on that large of a screen.
