Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter

  • Overview

    Every Mac with a Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.

    Use the Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter to connect an advanced digital monitor, such as the 20- or 23-inch Apple Cinema Display, that includes a DVI connector. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

    System Requirements

    Compatible with Mac computers with Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt ports

      "It appears that some people are being mislead into leaving bad reviews, but in the end, User Error is to blame. To clarify, this is a SINGLE Link DVI adapter, "It appears that some people are being mislead into leaving bad reviews, but in the end, User Error is to blame. To clarify, this is a SINGLE Link DVI adapter, intended to be used in conjunction with a SINGLE external monitor. Apple also sells a "Mini DisplayPort to DUAL-LINK DVI" adapter if you need to run, you guessed it, dual monitors! " DUAL -LINK refers to running a SINGLE display with greater than 1920x1200 resolution (like a 30" @ 2560x1600) It has nothing to do with the NUMBER of monitors you are running, just the resolution of a single one.

      THIS IS A DVI-D!!!

      so lets get to the REVIEW of the actual product. QUALITY: quality is excellent. i have been using this since the day the new MacBook Pro came out. i connect/ so lets get to the REVIEW of the actual product. QUALITY: quality is excellent. i have been using this since the day the new MacBook Pro came out. i connect/disconnect this plug to my macbookpro at least 6 times a day; and so far, the connection fit is still tight as the first day. this product in terms of quality is solid! it doesnt feel cheap and flimsy! it is also very light and weights almost nothing. MONITOR: im using a gateway FHD2400 (24" LCD monitor) and it works fine. my monitor supports DVI-I, DVI-D, VGA, HDMI, Svideo and a few more. IMPORTANT NOTES: MAKE SURE YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE AND DO YOUR HOMEWORK/RESEARCH before you buy this connector. make sure your monitor supports DVI-D... search on wekipedia if you are not sure...if your monitor doesnt support DVI-D, then DONT BUY IT and give it a bad rating...wait untill apple comes out with one that works, or an updated one...or simple go talk to an apple genius and see if they can give you a legit reason.

      For a $30 dongle it should last more than 1 year.

      Really disappointed that it didn't last as long as the $9 knockoff I bought from Amazon.

      Adapter is awful

      New Mac mini - Not old monitor... Random static upon waking from day one. Also, now a few wks. later, monitor gets weird sort of picture negative-like/ weird c New Mac mini - Not old monitor... Random static upon waking from day one. Also, now a few wks. later, monitor gets weird sort of picture negative-like/ weird colors/ distorted look on desktop. Perhaps Apple should make a Thunderbolt 2 to DVI CABLE. This adapter is not reliable.
