These things are constantly failing, some die after a few months of use. Very disappointing.

      Works Off and On, Shouldn't Even be Necessary

First off, I was disappointed to find that Apple hasn't even updated their Cinema Display to work natively with the new MacBook Pro MagSafe port. You'd think after spending over $1,000 on a display, and then $2,000+ on a laptop, that Apple would've had the foresight to update the adapter on the Cinema Display. As a business that prides itself on design and ease-of-use, this is just ridiculous. Secondly, the converter doesn't work reliably. I've purchased two in the last three months. There are no moving parts, so I don't understand the converters lose contact and refuse to charge the laptop after about 30-40 days. My second one is now acting up. The MagSafe converter is the only option to get these two devices to work properly with each other, and with that, you'd think Apple would make something that would work reliably.

      Great converter IF YOU WANT TO BUY A NEW ONE AFTER ONLY SEVERAL MONTHS!

      Those converters just stop working after several months. Not much to be added here. They don't work! Cons: stop working after a short while. Pros: NONE!!!

      Please Don't Assume The Reviewers Are Wrong - This Is A Piece Of Junk.

      It's not a matter of IF, it's a matter of WHEN this will fail. This is the worst piece of hardware to ever come out of Apple.

I'm a die-hard fan and this is ridiculous - these always fail after a few months of use. It's sad, but you're just going to have to shell out the cash for a Magsafe 2 power supply and junk your old Magsafe. This converter is a short term fix only. You've been warned.

I got a new 15" macbook pro and didn't want to lug my charger from home to work and back every day. Found this, which looked like a perfect solution. Except it's never worked. Not even once. I've spent over an hour trying different things to get it to work, based on advice from message boards and from apple. The real pain is that it was like 10 bucks, and I threw the packaging away when I opened it. It's not worth my time to drive back to the store and spend 30 min-1 hour of my life getting that $10 back. I'm very irritated by this product, and by apple's shameless money-grab antics with new chargers for their laptops and phones.
