    Doesn't work at all

    • Written by from Amsterdam

    Didn't work with any of the three vga-screens that I connected to my imac 24". Didn't know that I had to download a software patch first (!!), but after installing that, still no show. Is the adapter likely to be defective or the rediculously small and vulnerable Mini DisplayPort?

    Does NOT work!!! Very disappointed..

    • Written by from Athens

    I bought this adapter for my new Macbook for an important occasion. It arrived on time but does NOT work when I tried to connect it with projectors. I borrowed one before and it worked perfectly. Just don't know why this one does NOT...very frustrated...

    Flickers beyond belief!!

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Just bought a new Samsung monitor to hook up my Macbook Air for use at home. Tried to plug in this adapter and all it does is flicker on the screen whenever I'm in the process of doing something.
    Terrible product!
    Would not recommend!!

    VGA adaptor for MBP 13inch

    • Written by from Hereford

    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...

    Don't waste your money!!!

    • Written by from APO

    This product worked great for about a month and then it quit working completely!! Apparently Apple has this problem with all of their adaptor cables! So basically don't buy Apple products when it comes to any type of adaptor!

    Doesn't work with LCD data projector

    • Written by from Stillorgan

    As with other reports, the data projector refuses to recognize the MacBook Pro when I plug the cable in. I've used Detect Displays in the Displays control panel, but still no joy. The only thing that works is rebooting the machine with the display plugged in. The same projector had no problems with my old white MacBook via a mini-DVI to VGA adaptor. This is simply not acceptable for a laptop that cost over 2000 Euro. Do Apple ever actually *test* any of these things? I can't understand why they abandoned the perfectly-adequate mini-DVI for the mini-DisplayPort on their most recent machines.

    Stay away from this adapter if at all possible

    • Written by from Deer Park

    This adapter does not work on ANY of the 3 monitors and 2 tv's i tried to use it on. I exchanged the adapter, VGA cable, and then had my macbook pro looked at to see if it was defective; going through the normal troubleshooting flows. My mbp works just fine when i use the MDP to DVI adapter. The only logical explanation is this adapter is defective and is clearly a widespread and known issue. Hopefully apple will release a fix for it sometime soon.

    Back to PowerPoint

    • Written by from leyburn

    Switched to Imac last year & have been really impressed by Apple software. So much so, that I decided I'd like to be able to use Keynote instead of PowerPoint on my clunky old Dell laptop. My shiny new Macbook looked the part....until I tried to connect it to a projector using the VGA adaptor lead. It was immediately obvious that the fit & connection was poor & I was unable to get any signal whatsoever - unsurprising since it kept falling out. After reading the similar experiences of others on here, I have reluctantly decided to return my Macbook & am resigned to using my old Dell Latitude - clunky, slow but at least it's reliable, and above all else that's what I need when giving presentations. Truly amazed that Apple cannot get a grip on this.

    Bad Move by Apple

    • Written by from SHEFFIELD

    Mr Apple needs to listen to these comments. On a professional piece of kit, you should not be reliant on a flimsy adaptor to perform a basic task like display on an external display or projector. I understand the reasoning behind the change to smaller connections, Space. But if you can't fit a professional connector on the laptop, make it bigger! A professional grade laptop like the MacBook Pro should have a professional 25 pin DVI connection with the industry standard adaptor for VGA. there is a reason why the DVI connector is the size it it, and that is reliability.

    Sort it on the next model!!!

    Doesn't work...

    • Written by from Forestville

    Doesn't work, and can't seem to find the latest (May '09) firmware update. My previous MacBook Pro adapters worked great to VGA, S-video, and composite video. With the new PowerBook Pros with Mini DisplayPort there is no longer an analog output from the video card, and this adapter does NOT do the trick. I give up!

    Mini DisplayPort Falls Short

    • Written by from Austin

    I am a first time Mac user and was a little hesitant. After purchasing a MacBook Pro I was very impressed and excited. I was so excited that I wanted to display this on my LG TV. My previous laptop did this with out any effort. So I went out to my local Apple store and picked up this little number. After I plugged it in and did a screen detection I was not able to get any picture. I called Apple for some trouble shooting. They were as lost as I was. I pulled out my e-harmony remote and forced the input setting on the TV to the RGB/PC. Low and behold there was my screen. It displays but not well. Falls short with the resolution settings. TV is 720p and I have to set the resolution to lower than this in order to display the full picture. When I do that iMovie and other applications will display bigger than what is on the screen and wont adjust any lower. I tried everything. The screen also goes blank and readjust frequently. Pretty disappointed. Love the Mac but Apple could of done better than setting the display port for only their products. Classic Apple.

    Therapy for me to READ

    • Written by from Olathe

    After years of debate, last week I approved purchases for our office to move to a MAC platform. Everyone has been raving about the new Mac Books....until we tried to use them in either of the conference rooms where HDTVs are located. Yeah, did not see that comming.

    Just wanted to point out, although it does not solve the MAJOR MAC BOOK ISSUE, it is nice to hear that it's not just our office plagued with this issue. APPLE, fulfill your legacy and fix this....please.

    Freeze Frame

    • Written by from Atlanta

    With Macbook Pro (late 08), external VGA displays are basically unusable unless you close the lid. Otherwise, Video Res will be the same as laptops, and it freezes up if it goes to sleep or if you pull adapter out. Must also plug adapter in and boot, otherwise it freezes up. If you plug it in after booting, forget it.

    Very disappointing, wish Apple would fix this, otherwise the Macbook Pro is very nice...

    Moshi Mini Display Port Simply Useless

    • Written by from Spalding

    Bought it and it worked great until i plugged something into a usb port next to it, and that knocked the signal out to the external monitor. After wiggling the adapter it came back on again, but now it doesn't even connect when it's plugged in on its own, this is after maybe 3 months of occasional use. Would never buy another over priced hunk of junk from this company again.

    Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

    • Written by from London

    It quite simply doesn't work. I invited an International Rugby Referee to give a lecture to 30+ rugby referees and my brand new MacBook Pro failed to get the images to the screen through the projector. What on earth is this about? Some people say it works beautifully. How? This is supposed to be "plug and play". What have I failed to understand?

    Extremely poor

    • Written by from Northwich

    This product is not at the high standard you come to expect from apple.

    I am unable to connect my brand new Macbook to my Samsung TV as it would seem apple did not properly test this product before releasing it.

    Do NOT buy this product if you have a Samsung TV...

    No good

    • Written by from Alnwick

    Using this adapter to connect a second display to a Mac Pro. Mac will not recognise the correct resolution for the display.
    An identical display is connected to the DVI port via a VGA>DVI adapter without any problems.
