    Saved My Business School Presentation

    • Written by from Powder Springs

    This adapter saved my bacon by allowing me to connect my new 13" Macbook Pro to the classroom's projector VGA plug and present my term paper! My laptop doesn't have the VGA connection like the Windows PCs that most of the students were using. I didn't have to reboot my mac to activate the mini displayport; it automatically worked when i made the connection. Warning: There were two students in my class with older mac laptops and this Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter wouldn't fit in their macs. I bought my 13" macbook pro (MB990LL/A) in August so it's important to get the right adapter for your mac. If unsure, I recommend taking your mac into an Apple store or other retailer to get the right adapter.

    Works as advertised

    This item works just like the description says it works. Every time I connect an external monitor or projector, it works. I've never lost a connection or anything.

    Absolutely Fantastic

    • Written by from Grimsby

    Bought this product when purchasing a new iMac for the study in my house. I had also bought a new LG TV to go with it, i decided it might be pretty nice to wall mount the TV above the mac, and using it as an extended desktop when I need to focus on work and the TV shouldn't be on.

    Constant praise should be given to apple for making such a seamless product, I switched the TV onto the VGA input, and connected the minidisplay port to the mac. Instantly I had an extended desktop.

    It even allows me to tell the mac where the second monitor is, above it. This seems to be a problem for many Windows users that you cannot have an extended desktop above the original and dominant screen.

    Overall, just five stars for absolute satisfaction, and just thank you Apple! For making such a superb product, (although the wire is a touch short).

    I have a Vizio and it works just fine. It goes up to the full 1920x1080 resolution. It has a tight fit so you know it wont come unplugged but sometimes its a little to hard to unplug. Overall, great buy.

    Despite reviews from others suggesting this does not work with data projectors, it worked perfectly with mine. First time, no hassle, no fuss, no problems.

    Serves Its Purpose With Ease

    • Written by from Marlborough

    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!

    Works Perfect

    • Written by from Athy

    Bought this cable when I was buying my MacBook Pro. It works perfectly with my tv. When I connect it to my Mac, the Mac automatically changes to the correct display resolution for my tv. When I disconnect the cable, it automatically changes back to the correct display resolution for my MacBook Pro screen, very simple indeed

    All the negative reviews of this product are from people who bought this cable for the wrong purpose or bought the wrong cable.

    I have gotten mine to work with my samsung 32 inch tv, i think the main trick is to plug the adapter in first to the vga cable, then you plug it in to the mac...

    This lead is fine!

    • Written by from LONDON

    This is the correct lead for connecting a MacBook with a mini display port to a data projector, and it works fine.

    Nothing better!

    • Written by from Johns Creek

    Nothing beats original accessories for any manufacturer. This adapter is good quality and works perfectly. I use it with my Sony TV and numerous computer monitors all the time. It's as if there is no adapter. A must buy for those who need a good adapter.

    Works great

    • Written by from Austin

    I bought a 46" Samsung LCD yesterday and today decided it was time to see how my MacBook looked on it. I see a few reviews of people having issues connecting it to Samsung TVs. Not sure if my model just lacks the issues others are having or if they are doing something wrong. The all I had to do to make it work was connect Mini-Disp to VGA adapter, connect VGA cable from that adapter to back of TV, change TV source to "PC", and change the display settings on my MacBook to mirror the display. Looks great to me!

    Just got a Macbook Pro 13" and the adapter works seamlessly with my projector. There were non in the Apple Store by my house and I was told that it didn't exist by a genius there, but I found it online and it works well. :)

    Outstanding!

    • Written by from Daytona Beach

    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.

    This does work with data projectors

    • Written by from Sheffield

    Don't be put off by previous reviews saying this adapter doesn't work with data projectors. I've tried it with my new MacBook Pro and can confirm it works with at least 3 different brands of data projector cnnected via VGA type (3 rows of 5 pin) connectors. There may have been a problem, presumably now fixed.

    Works perfectly with my VGA monitor and my company's overhead projector. Caution: This is NOT a TV adapter, it is an adapter for a VGA compatible monitor.

    Beautiful

    • Written by from Derry

    I use the adapter primarily for connecting to projectors for keynote presentations and, as you might expect, it works perfectly for that. Recently, I tried using it to connect to my Toshiba Regza 42RV535U 42" 1080p tv, and it is fantastic. I'm streaming Netflix movies with ease in beautiful quality and using every inch of screen space.

    What can I say, it does what it's supposed to do. Not sure what all the negative reviews are about (unless of course your adapter is DOA, in which case just have it replaced).
