    Works perfectly fine for me.

    No issues. Plugged everything in and i worked. No loose connections or trouble that everyone else seems to have mentioned. Very secure. I use it every day to dock my MBP to a Dell LCD.

    My only compaint that the adapter is even needed. Apple, I like you a lot, but play nicer with other manufactuers. Use more common technologies.

    Not useable with projectors

    Have tries several adapters on several projectors. I got a picture on the beamer, but only in 1024x768 which is wrong format and wrong resolution.
    What I wonder is if ther's anyone who knows if it is nessecary to have IDbits connected as well. This is not possible in this building. At ALL. Therefore the signal is "only"
    RGBHV which all standard PC's can handle. It is not possible to change the resolution on the Mac's own screen neither on the projector.

    MINI DVI. A WASTE

    i am extremely dissappointed, PLEASE CHECK SPECIFICATIONS ON YOUR MAC BEFORE BUYING CABLES LIKE THESE.YOU WOULD THINK ALL MACS ARE BUILT THE SAME WAY UNTIL SOMETHING YOU HAVE WAITED FOR A WHOLE MONTH DOES NOT FIT. APPLE SHOULD SHOW SPECIFICATIONS, NOT JUST PICTURES..DO NOT BUY..DO NOT BUY

    Too expensive

    this adaptor is too expensive for the length of cable. (See other reviews) With all the other problems with firmware and failure to run on some TVs apple developed a clunker. But unfortunately only one on the market, no third party choices.

    Good, but needs a firmware update

    This adapter worked quite well for me, but then it began cutting out
    or flickering. I did a web search and learned that Apple now has a
    firmware update for the adapter which you can download.
    Just plug in your computer with its power supply and with the external
    VGA display connected, and run Software Update. So this problem
    might explain some of the less-than-positive reviews.

    It comes off about once a day.

    The display adapter is so small and lacking any fasteners it falls off very easily just from the weight of the VGA cable.

    I ended up just taping the adapter to the Mac.

    Its such a obvious design flaw. Because of this I cannt really recommend using a Mac for mission critical assignments. Once the cable falls out, it often crashes the system.

    Just a little shake of the table or someone bumping into the Mac will cause the adapter to slip out, losing all work on the system. Even with the tape the adapter slowly comes lose.

    Works fine

    I have a 13" Unibody MacBook and an old 19" TFT (Samtron 73v).

    The adapter works as described out of the box, no problems at all. Only things that could be better is that the lead could be a bit longer, other than that, all OK.

    Best Ever!!

    Clicks into computer better than any other port in the past, syncs and looks great on all the displays i have used! I primarily use my 37" Vizio HDTV, sanyo projectors, panasonic projectors, sharp and dell projectors and they work flawless!! i have zero complaints!

    Junk

    Not only was the actual connection to the vga cable horrible, it caused my display to be messed up. When I attempted to change the display back to the original settings, system preferences would not quit and the computer would not turn off normally.

    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!

    Bad Move by Apple

    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!!!

    No image anymore

    I bought this adapter in February 2009 and used it to connect my unibody macbook to:
    1. Panasonic PT AE500 Projector
    2. Samsung 42" Plasma
    3. My External 19" LG LCD

    I worked for the first four days with the projector. Then it stopped working.
    I then tried the TV and the Monitor as well, no dice. In system preferences the screen is not detected at all. I have tried different cables and monitors.

    When I try to upgrade the firmware (Mini_DisplayPort_to_VGA_Firmware_Update) it says my monitor needs to be connected for the upgrade. It is. But the Mac won't detect the screen.

    Junk!

    This adapter is so sensitive that if I breathe wrong it will disconnect from the back of my mac mini. The result is i lose my Samsung Syncmaster 225bw monitor and cant get it back short of holding a voodoo ceremony. What a pain!

    Intermittent Success!

    This worked fine for my MacBook Pro for the first two days with my LG monitor and now it just flashes up the display every so often, after restarting, unplugging various times it still will not work so I am left rather frustrated with it! I bought a new monitor so it would work as a dual screen with my laptop especially - not happy!

    Works Perfect

    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.

    Epic Design FAIL

    Before buying my adapter I read some other reviews about the poor VGA connector design and thought seriously, they can't have stuffed that up?...

    ...But they have! I've tried two different VGA extension cables and both fail to fully push home into the VGA connector block. The rebate around the metal connector is too small to fit the slightly wider base of a standard male VGA connector. The connector threaded holes are even recessed in too far to be able to tighten up at all. The cable still works, but the VGA connector falls out at the slightest touch.

    Works great

    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!

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