    Works without a single flaw!!!

    I bought this and it worked just fine for me. I have tried it on a few Sony projectors, a Dell and an HP widescreen LCD monitor, and worked the instant I plugged it in. No playing around had to be done! Very pleased with Apple products.

    Worked perfectly

    After reading the other reviews, I thought this was going to be a disaster. I'm using it with a ViewSonic video projector.

    I plugged the adapter into the Mac (15" MBP current model), plugged the projector cable into the adapter, the Mac immediately recognized the projector. I went into the utility to mirror the screens (which was not the default), it knocked the resolution on the projector down to one the projector could handle. This was all displayed in the Monitors dropdown in the toolbar. And everything worked absolutely perfectly.

    Yes, it doesn't look anywhere near as good on the projector as it does on the Mac. What a surprise. And this is the Mac's problem why??

    My only complaint is that $29.95 is a bit expensive, but all Apple cables are absurdly expensive.

    Pathetic - re-syncs

    I upgraded from a $700 2 year old Toshiba laptop to a $2000 macbook pro 15". After buying this $29.95 part, I found that my monitor keeps going dark re-syncing.

    I also found my brand new bluetooth mighty mouse doesn't scroll up. Do I have to get an appointment at a store with a genius to simply do a return of the mouse?

    Smooth operation so far

    I've used this to connect my MacBook Air to projectors for presentations and so far the connections have been perfect. Based on the other reviews, I am now concerned that it might not work on some occasions, but no problems yet.

    Works perfect with Dell 15" Flat-Panel LCD (model # E152FP)

    Was very skeptical when reading the reviews for this product, but I can proudly say that this works perfect for the monitor stated in the title above. If you have this monitor and thinking about purchasing it, I would highly recommend it. Little pricey, but it's worth the money. I love having two screen to work on, and with the help of the "Spaces" program (available for Leopard users), it's amazing.

    Freeze Frame

    With Macbook Pro (late 08), external VGA displays are basically unusable unless you close the lid. Otherwise, Video Res will be the same as laptops, and it freezes up if it goes to sleep or if you pull adapter out. Must also plug adapter in and boot, otherwise it freezes up. If you plug it in after booting, forget it.

    Very disappointing, wish Apple would fix this, otherwise the Macbook Pro is very nice...

    Bought for my MBP, works just fine

    Does what it says it does, and what it's supposed to do. Works fine, nothing exciting.

    The plastic film that you're supposed to peel off has a nasty smell to it, but it doesn't make the dongle smell or anything; I believe it's the adhesive, but it smells bad regardless.

    I can't say how I feel about DisplayPort yet, but from what it looks like it's a good thing.

    Great Purchase

    I bought this, and it worked completely fine with two different Dell monitors, although it did require a minimal amount in tweaking the settings for the output, which is completely fine by me.

    Don't buy

    It just doesn't work. Screen is waving, changing colors. Often I cannot even choose the resolution I want for my external screen. I've tried with two diffrent screens, and none of them worked good. This cable behaves like the worst Microsoft product and Apple pretends not to see it.

    Simply didn't work

    I bought this to hook up my new macbook to projectors. Tried to hook it up to a Dell projector and although the macbook seemed to recognize the display, the projector just kept displaying "searching for signal." Would love to find a solution.

    Very dissapointed

    I just bought a brand new mac book with this adapter hoping that I would be able to hook it up to the 23 inch samsung syncmaster 2333HD display I got for Christmas. The computer seems to acknowledge the monitor, having the correct name on the window when I hit "detect display" but the display will only read "check signal cable" the display works with other computers and even the vga adapter on my 2005 ibook. The macbook adapter works with my old crt external but not with this new display. This seems to be something of a trend based on the other reviews and I am very dissapointed. I'm going to try and see if the dvi adapter works but still, very disappointing. This is unacceptable.

    Rubbish

    Just acquired a new Macbook pro (really nice bit of kit). Connected it to my Samsung 22" monitor via this converter. Now get the old blank sync screen every five mins. Makes me want to put my head through the screen. Is there anything I can do to fix this?... After reading the other reviews appears not. Please fix this Apple!

    Sorta...

    Connects to my HP 24" LCD monitor. However, even at the highest resolution setting (which is native to my monitor) the picture is not completely sharp. I also experience the intermittent blackouts every 3-5 minutes. This is a major problem that needs to be fixed ASAP. Apple needs to get busy. This setup is unusable!

    Doesn't work with the Samsung LN46A550

    Rats, I wish I read these reviews before purchasing this adapter. I cannot get this to output to the Samsung.

    Absolute Joke

    I just bought a new 13" 2.4GHz MacBook unibody along with this adapter. I was trying to connect my Samsung 32" LCD to my computer, and needless to say, the TV does not even recognize the MacBook. This is my first Mac, so it definitely leaves a sour taste in my mouth and doesn't give me too much confidence in the reliability of other Apple peripherals. This is an absolute joke-- frustrating and disappointing. I just wish I could rate this zero stars.

    Blinking monitor with my Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

    Dear Apple,
    I am fan of your products, but this is getting strangely disappointing.

    I have a 26" Benq monitor, and with my previous MB Pro it was already pretty complicated to synchronize it in full external screen definition. You needed a trick: put the Mac in standby, then open and close fast, etc...

    Now, with my new MB Pro and the Mini Displayport to vga adapter, not only you didn't fix this problem, but I am experiencing constant blinks (every 3-5 minutes).

    I have noticed that there are many other unanswered complaints regarding this matter.

    I am tired of searching for forums throughout the net; is there any way I can get a feedback about this?

    THANKS
