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

      Trouble Free Connection

      I used this adapter to connect my new 13" Macbook Pro to both an LG 22'' Monitor (DVI cable with male ends) and to a Philips 37" HD LCD Flat Screen TV (Same DVI I used this adapter to connect my new 13" Macbook Pro to both an LG 22'' Monitor (DVI cable with male ends) and to a Philips 37" HD LCD Flat Screen TV (Same DVI cable but with a DVI/HDMI adapter for the connection to the TV). Word of warning if you want sound through the TV, you will need to run a separate cable (3.5mm jack to phono). I posted this because I had difficulty deciding which cable I needed.

      Yes, it's DVI-D

      If anyone looks at the enlarged photos of this item they will see it has a horizontal pin C5 and a full set of pins 1-24. This means it is DVI-D, not DVI-I whic If anyone looks at the enlarged photos of this item they will see it has a horizontal pin C5 and a full set of pins 1-24. This means it is DVI-D, not DVI-I which has pins C1-C4 as well or DVI-A with C1-C4 and many other pins missing. If you do not check the connection before buying then that is not really Apple's fault. This is a very nicely made adapter and does the job well. The connection should be tight as there are some very dodgy DVI-D cables out there with poor screws on them. If you don't know what you have, then stick to VGA maybe.

      These reviews are out of date

      Virtually all monitors now are using digital DVI not the now defunct analogue which has been left to VGA connections. So there is no compatibility issues. Ther Virtually all monitors now are using digital DVI not the now defunct analogue which has been left to VGA connections. So there is no compatibility issues. There are independent makes that fit a bit tighter at the mini port side, but these adapters will fit the DVI cable that comes with your monitor.

      Unreliable

      I've bought one of these and I'm pretty disappointed. I use it to connect a 2010 15" MacBookPro (8.2) to an ASUS PB278Q. Very often when I turn on the computer, I've bought one of these and I'm pretty disappointed. I use it to connect a 2010 15" MacBookPro (8.2) to an ASUS PB278Q. Very often when I turn on the computer, the image in the monitor is completely grained (full of noise) and I can see the desktop below the noise. I need to unplug the USB part of the adapter (the power I suppose) and then re-plug it. Sometimes I need to do this twice. It may also work turn off and on the monitor. One thing is for sure: When I turn on the computer, or awake it from sleep, it's completely impossible to know whether the noise/grain will appear. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. I regret a LOT having bought this, specially because later I learned that I could simlpy have bought a cheap Mini Displayport to Displayport cable........
