    Negative Samsung reviews? Worked perfectly for me on receipt, no problem.

    I don't quite understand all the negative Samsung reviews: I held off purchasing this
    adapter for a month because of them: I finally ignored other people's Samsung difficulties and I took a "risk" and bought it and received it this morning.

    I just hooked it up from my 17" MacBook Pro/3.06/2x4GB/500/SD/AG and plugged it in via VGA cable to my Samsung 50" 1080P Plasma (PN50B550T2F) and mirrored with absolutely no difficulty. I'm sorry I hesitated buying it now. It was stunning to see Safari speed through pages using my AT&T U-Verse MaxPlus internet account (up to 18Mbps downstream but usually clocks around 14 to 16 Mbps) on that large of a screen.

    Awesome Product!

    I recently purchased a 13-inch MacBook Pro and the screen is a good size for when your not at your desk but I decided to go ahead and get the Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter so I could hook it up to my 20-inch LCD Monitor when I'm at my desk at home. So, I bought it and brought it home and I plugged everything in and it instantly recognized my monitor all I had to do was set the resolution higher so it looked better on the bigger screen! The adapter is nice and compact so you can carry it around with you in your laptop bag if you wanted to. I didn't have any problems with the plug falling out of the socket like some people had been complained about, the plug seems to stay in well enough so as to not fall out but also loose enough to be taken out without any hassle. This is a very nice product and I would recommend it to anyone looking to attach a larger monitor to their MacBook or MacBook Pro!

    Can't understand the bad reviews

    It worked perfectly for me. Come on, this is just a VGA adaptor, it has no reason not to work properly as people have been reporting. I agree that the initial resolution was bad, but this is a matter of adjusting the resolution and color properties in the System Preferences/Displays. It has a nice wizard to help you.

    Works Perfectly On 27" iMac

    I just purchased the 27" iMac w/ 2.66 Ghz Quad Core. I had a PC with a 19" Samsung SyncMaster 910MP and so I decided it would be nice to have a 2nd display. This was very simple to get working. After connecting everything all you have to do is go to system prefrences to set up the monitors.

    I am running Windows XP on my Bootcamp v3.1 partition and Snow Leopard on my Mac partition. The dual monitors work great! Absolutely no issues under either operating system. I highly recommend this cable. I've set them up as both mirroring and extended desktop and have had no issues in either mode.

    BTW...On a side note my mouse pointer was very erratic with bootcamp v3.0 drivers installed but now it is perfect with the v3.1 drivers.

    Now I am in heaven!

    Pay Attention

    This adapter worked for me. These bad reviews on here are just from customers NOT paying attention to what works. Do your Homework, and you will see that it works out! But this adapter was exactly what I needed, and I got it 2 days after ordering it, which was great, and able to get my Presentation set up a day before!

    Saved My Business School Presentation

    This adapter saved my bacon by allowing me to connect my new 13" Macbook Pro to the classroom's projector VGA plug and present my term paper! My laptop doesn't have the VGA connection like the Windows PCs that most of the students were using. I didn't have to reboot my mac to activate the mini displayport; it automatically worked when i made the connection. Warning: There were two students in my class with older mac laptops and this Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter wouldn't fit in their macs. I bought my 13" macbook pro (MB990LL/A) in August so it's important to get the right adapter for your mac. If unsure, I recommend taking your mac into an Apple store or other retailer to get the right adapter.

    Works as advertised

    This item works just like the description says it works. Every time I connect an external monitor or projector, it works. I've never lost a connection or anything.

    Awesome!

    I have a Vizio and it works just fine. It goes up to the full 1920x1080 resolution. It has a tight fit so you know it wont come unplugged but sometimes its a little to hard to unplug. Overall, great buy.

    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!

    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...

    Nothing better!

    Nothing beats original accessories for any manufacturer. This adapter is good quality and works perfectly. I use it with my Sony TV and numerous computer monitors all the time. It's as if there is no adapter. A must buy for those who need a good adapter.

    Works great

    I bought a 46" Samsung LCD yesterday and today decided it was time to see how my MacBook looked on it. I see a few reviews of people having issues connecting it to Samsung TVs. Not sure if my model just lacks the issues others are having or if they are doing something wrong. The all I had to do to make it work was connect Mini-Disp to VGA adapter, connect VGA cable from that adapter to back of TV, change TV source to "PC", and change the display settings on my MacBook to mirror the display. Looks great to me!

    Works great!

    Just got a Macbook Pro 13" and the adapter works seamlessly with my projector. There were non in the Apple Store by my house and I was told that it didn't exist by a genius there, but I found it online and it works well. :)

    Outstanding!

    I just bought a new 15" Macbook Pro in July 2009 and I wanted to hook up the monitor from my HP Desktop. After reading all of the reviews on this site I was very skeptical about this product, but I decided to buy it anyway. It worked perfectly. All of the connectors fit snug and flush without effort, and the Macbook Pro detected and turned on the HP monitor in seconds. I didn't have to open system preferences or change any settings. It was truly plug and play.

    Works Just fine!

    Works perfectly with my VGA monitor and my company's overhead projector. Caution: This is NOT a TV adapter, it is an adapter for a VGA compatible monitor.

    Beautiful

    I use the adapter primarily for connecting to projectors for keynote presentations and, as you might expect, it works perfectly for that. Recently, I tried using it to connect to my Toshiba Regza 42RV535U 42" 1080p tv, and it is fantastic. I'm streaming Netflix movies with ease in beautiful quality and using every inch of screen space.

    What can I say, it does what it's supposed to do. Not sure what all the negative reviews are about (unless of course your adapter is DOA, in which case just have it replaced).
