    TV or Projector (LOVE)

    I am a Youth pastor and hook this up to my Macbook pro and to any of our projectors and to my Samsung TV every night and it has worked perfectly for over a year!

    Never a problem

    I use this adapter almost every day for a digital projector in my classroom, and I use it at home for a monitor to watch movies and I have NEVER had a problem. I have had it for almost two years now.

    The screws fit right in and I am glad the port is smaller because I think that big VGA port is ugly. Also how often are you going to have something in the video port, both audio ports and both USB ports?

    Like all Apple products, it is sleek, easy to use right out of the box, and doesn't break.

    Beautiful

    Works great for all of the presentations I do at school. No fail yet, even after 200 presentations. If you want HD, buy the dvi, it's what I use for my television, and it's much nicer (Can do 1080p) and it's cheaper.

    it's supposed to be used with a monitor not TV's

    You are all complaining about the adapter not working on your TV or that it is not compatible with large resolutions. but if you go back to the description it doesn't say TV anywhere. it worked fine for me on my monitor and guess what it never broke!

    Dissapointing...... No support for 1920x1440

    Bought a new mac mini to use it with my home theater setup. Old mac mini with the intel graphics chipset can do up to 1920x1440 on analog VGA output. (via dvi to vga adapter). New setup with this cable can do max 1920x1200.... And even that doesnt work properly. Signals seem to be distorted....

    Waste of money.

    No problems across multiple platforms

    I have a 13 inch Macbook and have used this adapter with no problems. I have a first-generation flat screen monitor from a desktop I bought in '01. It works excellent with that. Additionally, I have more recently used this adapter on two different LCD televisions with no problems.
    It did take a few minutes the first time I used it to realize that you have to grab the window on your primary monitor and literally slide it over to the secondary monitor. I've used it this way to edit photos as well as watch movies and it works great.

    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!

    VGA male will not attach to this piece of junk

    Piece of *censored* - non-standard holes are set back too far for any standard male VGA plug to attach. This means your cables will work loose and come apart. *censored* *censored* - expensive overpriced *censored*, Steve.

    Great but scratched

    Works great, it's durable and small. The thing is that it gets scratched very easy because of the glossy finish.

    Great!

    Excellent little adaptor, although an HDMI port on every apple computer would be preferred. But then again, we don't live in a perfect world. After purchasing a VGA to HDMI cable, I finally can see the content of my 13 inch laptop on the 40 inch LCD tv. It's great! I can watch movies, browse the internet from the couch via the lovely track pad, it works! You can view mirror image or use the tv as a second display. After a year, it's worth the $35.

    Doesn't Last

    Anyone who writes a a positive review of this product must work for Apple.

    First, with the money it costs to buy a Macbook, you should expect it to come with a VGA port already installed. Why should anyone need to pay an additional 30 dollars for an adapter? It's an inconvenience.

    Second, these adapters do not hold up very long. I use mine every day. After two months of teaching, it is already starting to black out. They aren't built to handle the long haul. I have this problem every year. Last year, I went through 3 adapters.

    Someone at Apple needs to wake-up and learn to make a durable product that will last.

    Long Ordeal

    I bought this expensive item and it only worked for a short time before causing problems. Worked intermittently, screen went black, needed cold-starts to reconnect, then finally fail to connect under the proper screen resolution.
    It took several weeks to get Apple to diagnose and I'm still waiting for the replacement to be shipped. Will the new one also fail in short order? I suspect it will. In the meantime, I can't do my usual work without the monitor.

    Can't attach correctly to VGA Cables

    I do a lot of presentations with a MacBook Pro and a projector in different places and I can never attach tightly my VGA cables; the holders are to far from the edge. I have to use tape all the time to make sure it doesn't unplug and there is risk of poor color displaying if it is not plugged correctly. I'm not happy with it and I don't have other options. I hope you guys fix the problem.

    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€.

    1 year later...

    Still works great!!! Wish it had a longer cord, but still works to project my screen onto the Smartboard in my Elementary classroom and College classroom. Only thing... I need two because I tend to forget to take the one from my day job to my night job!

    Fix For External Display Problems

    I've had the same problem as others have posted using the adapter with an iMac on a Sampo/Net TV monitor. The monitor would just make a fast clicking noise and nothing would display regardless of the resolution setting or resetting the PRAM.

    The solution is to use a VGA cable that's missing a pin (Pin 9).

    Doesn't fit in Mac Book Pro

    Connector fits Mac Book, but not the Mac Book Pro. Big disappointment!

    Use it every day!

    I use the VGA adapter to deliver lectures in rooms fitted with projectors. I simply take in my Apple Mac, plug in the VGA adapter to the VGA port on the projector console and I'm up and running. I also use it on my TV at home (LG) to watch movies I download.
