I have a Dell S2740 monitor with VGA, DVI and HDMI ports. what is the best way to connect to Thunderbolt on my macbook pro?

Right now I have a Thunderbolt-to-DVI connector, but it is extremely unstable, the slightest move of the connector will disconnect and cause a switch to single monitor. Another touch and it goes back to dual monitor mode.

    Personally, I'd suggest getting the Belkin Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. Even though it's a Mini DisplayPort adapter this will work with Thunderbolt port. I actually got the Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter the other day to work with a Macbook Pro 13" Retina and it works a dream

  • It sounds like you have a bad connector. Try another one. I use HDMI and DVI connectors with no problem/tight fit, no drop outs.
